An indisputable Fifties icon, the Chevy Bel Air continues to be revered by collectors. Representing Chevrolet's full-size offering at the time, it also dipped its toes into the muscle car scene. This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod is a bit different, as it's got some tasteful modifications that don't detract from its period beauty. The current owner reports that a frame-off restoration was completed in 2022, and the list of things this car has received is, to put it mildly, extensive. Let's see what we've got here.
Sporting a lovely blue paintwork with white accents, this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod cuts a pristine figure as it glistens in the sunshine. It's a two-door hardtop variant, and the current owner reports new rocker panels, trunk lids, fenders, glass parts, chrome, and windshield. Even the felt around the glass is said to be new. The hardtop is finished in black, and some modern-style chromed Foose wheels have been installed, replete with new low-profile tires. Look closely, and you'll see that the attention to detail is immaculate. The gray and black interior is reportedly new, sporting two low-back bench seats and a lovely period dash. The current owner reports that the dash chrome is new, as is the push clock. We can see that the ventilation controls look new, as do all other switches and knobs. The wood-rimmed Chevy-centered steering wheel adds character, and it's not hard to imagine a lazy drive, one hand lightly gripping it as you steer this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod along a broad boulevard. The current owner also tells us that the car has received new flooring.
While cruising down said boulevard, you can also turn heads in this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod when you floor the throttle. Beneath the hood lies a newer 5.3L Vortec engine that should put out around 300hp or thereabouts. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission. The current owner reports new 4-wheel power disc brakes with slotted rotors and braided lines for a comprehensive stopping power upgrade. There's also a new fuel tank, radiator, bushings, gaskets, bearings, and rubber parts.
