1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible is finished in the iconic color combination of Tuxedo Black with a black convertible top and red boot cover and completes its outward presentation with dual antennas and chrome and gold-anodized Bel Air trim. The tri-color interior is appointed in black with red and silver using the correct materials and pattern arrangement. This car is heavily optioned with power steering, a split-bench seat, Wonderbar radio, tinted windows and a power-operated convertible top. The drivetrain has been upgraded with a larger-displacement 350/290 hp Chevrolet engine that replaces the original 283 ci powerplant. Likewise, the automatic transmission is a more modern GM 700 R4 - a 4-speed automatic overdrive unit that replaces the usual 2-speed Powerglide transmission. The added performance, both in terms of torque and horsepower, make this Bel Air ad far more user-friendly car to drive, and the revised ratios from the 4-speed automatic enable both faster acceleration and an enhanced cruising speed. This beauty is riding on new 18 inch chrome American Racing wheels and performance tires for new age looks but the original wheels and hubcaps are available in exchange or can be purchased at extra cost. This gorgeous Bel Air convertible is a great car to enjoy on a cruise night with your friends and family.EXTERIOR: Tuxedo Black paint Black convertible top with red boot Power convertible top Dual antennas Tinted windshield Gold anodized grille Spinner wheel covers Wide whitewall coversINTERIOR: Correct color combination of red and silver interior Custom gauges Wonderbar radio Split bench seatMECHANICS: 350/290hp replacement engine 4 barrel carb Power steering Heat and defrost 700R4 Automatic transmissionUNDERCARRIAGE: Super solid and intactAmerican Dream MachinesAt American Dream Machines, we typically have over 100 quailty classic cars and trucks in stock and for sale.
