"'57 CHEVROLET! SWEET SMOOTH AND SASSY!"
The 1957 is one of the most iconic and collectible cars today. These cars were introduced in September of 1956 for the 1957 model year. They were available in three series models: the upscale Belair (which we have here), the mid-range Two-Ten, and the One-Fifty. These cars are frequently used in toys, graphics, music, movies, and television. The '57 Chevy is a true icon!
Here we have a beautiful original and rare Belair model that has been well loved by its past owners. It has been serviced well through the years and has never needed a full restoration, however, some things have been done and improved through the years. The next owner could take it to the level or just simply enjoy it how it is! This would be a very nice car for all your cruise night events, local car shows, or just own/drive for fun. This car will be a treasure for your family to own for years to come and a great investment too.

What is believed to be the original 283ci Power Pack V8 (with its original air cleaner) starts and runs very well, idles smooth, and makes very good power! The transmission shifts and operates well at all speeds. Working gauges, lights, radio, and even the factory clock still works! The car has had a recent tune-up/check up, has an updated radio with a blue tooth cassette conversion, an alternator conversion for reliability (and easier future replacement), and has a brand new set.
