A 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop is already a very cool classic that is in demand. But as you look at the awesome factory color combo, V8 power, strong front disc brake package, and fresh A/C interior, you soon realize this icon was built to be a true cruiser.
Surf Green is an awesome way to show off the pastels that are ideal for the 1950s, and the trim tag tells us this is factory correct. It's been given a nice respray later in life, and so today it strikes the right balance of a bright style that also won't make you nervous to drive this coupe (and as you dig into all the features, you realize this one was made for fun cruising.) This has all the best brightwork looking good, including the iconic chrome front end, golden details, and the full-length trim that shows off how good the sheet metal is. There are a ton of great details, like the factory wheel covers, dual exhaust tips, blue-dot taillights, and rear fender skirts. And not only does the white roof look great against the minty green, but also we bet this has you thinking about getting some wide whitewalls to match.
The interior has received a good investment to maintain its vintage appeal. It starts with the seats. The green with coated fabric black inserts is correct, right down to the button-top trim. But everything feels fresher than 1957. Matching door panels, fresh carpeting, and a taut headliner are all part of the thoughtful investment. Even details like the steering wheel, bright dash, and working dome lights are all part of this vintage presentation. But this one also wants to be a great driver for modern times. That's why there are well-integrated upgrades like retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and cold-blowing air conditioning.
It's nice to see this VC-code hardtop with a correct V8 under the hood. It goes for a touch of vintage with the orange block and matching Chevrolet script valve covers. The consignor believes it is the original 283 v8 that came with the car, but we are unable to verify that with 100% certainty. The upgraded glasspack-style dual exhaust gives you the V8 tune you really want. There's also a Powerglide automatic transmission and modern touring tides. Plus, you've got a terrific brake system upgrade with a dual power brake booster master cylinder and front disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
