Everyone loves a '57 Bel Air, especially a well sorted one. The iconic look of the Bel Air is easy on the eyes no matter what color it's finished in. This gorgeous Bel Air finished in gloss black with silver rear coves, which looks awesome, and is sure to turn heads. Add the American Racing wheels, hopped up engine, and tasteful mods, this Bel Air is an awesome package.
The car was repainted in late 2007 in the gloss black that you now see. According to the Trim Tag, the car was originally finished in India Ivory/Onyx Black when it left the Norwood Ohio factory. When the car was repainted, all glass was removed, as well as all trim. When put back together, new seals were installed, as well as new trim, and new fasteners. 15” American Racing wheels give away the fact that the car has a few things done under the hood. The final product is a beautiful Bel Air that is easy on the eyes.
Inside the car is a very clean interior that has just a couple well integrated modifications. Slide in behind the LeCarra steering wheel and you're in a well kept interior. The bench seats have been reupholstered in black and gray, and a gauge cluster and matching tach have been neatly installed. An aftermarket Kenwood stereo has been added and hidden in the glovebox.
The 383ci V8 stroker is nestled in a very clean engine bay and has been treated to a long list of upgrades. We'll give you the “short list” to start. The engine was completely disassembled, machining was done, the block was painted, and was reassembled with reconditioned heads. New pistons, hydraulic lifters, oil pump, valve springs, and new gaskets were installed before dialing everything in and firing it up. A Holley 4BBL carb, MSD plug wires, camshaft, and an aluminum fan are among the other parts that found their way onto the engine. Flowmaster mufflers have been installed and thanks to those the sound of that built V8 is even easier to hear. Handling gear selection is a Muncie 4 speed manual transmission that is paired with Centerforce clutch components.
