With fuel-injected big block power, this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air looks and sounds like a dark horse. But while you'll love the aggressive outside, we bet you'll also love the comfy A/C interior. So this one creates an iconic package that gives you everything you want.
It's hard to go wrong with a real-deal '57 Bel Air hardtop dressed in a slick black. You can tell they took their time laying down the darkness by the way it simultaneously has a terrific gloss while also looking like it consumes all the light around it. The black makes for the ideal backdrop for all the brightwork we love on these '57 Chevys. The wide smiling grille, twin rocket-style hood ornaments, full window trim, and intricate rear bumper all shine like mirrors. And the full sweeping side trim that fans out at the tailfin is an icon all on its own. But you also want to tell the world that this is a seriously upgraded classic. So the modern Coys alloys announce this aggression. Not only are they staggered 20/22 inches front/rear for a great stance, but also they give a clear view at the modern brake calipers.
One look inside, and you know there was plenty of money invested here. The exterior black returns on the carpeting and dash, but now it's expertly intertwined with a tasteful tan on the custom door panels. That way it's a fully coordinated package with the tan headliner and plush leather seats. You'll love how this has the right vintage look with the best upgrades expertly added. For example, the AM/FM stereo has a great retro-style appearance, but it's really a modern digital tuner with an aux input for your iPod. And the glowing full gauge package fits in the original dash openings. Plus, you can roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and remain feeling as cool as you look thanks to modern R134a air conditioning.
The shoebox Chevys might be famous for launching the small block V8s, but this coupe proves that the big blocks fit in the engine bay, too. This 454 cubic-inch motor is show-ready with a ton of polished components and a big block radiating underneath it. And when you look beyond the shine, you'll also see some serious performance substance. It starts with a tunnel ram fuel injection system installed by AZ Speed and Marine. Plus, long tube headers add power to this big block while also contributing to the sweet rumble of the X-pipe dual exhaust. So you know you've got some serious power backing up the hot rod image. And making sure it all gets to the ground is a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission feeding a strong Currie 9-inch rear. Also, keeping you in full control over this monster muscle is the grip of modern directional tires and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes. And while this has brutish power, they also made sure it's easy to cruise this icon on the boulevard. That's why you have nice driving features like power steering and a large aluminum radiator with dual electric fans.
