1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible
Certainly one of the most iconic body styles ever created by American automobile companies, the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air has to be in the Top 3 list of all-time most beloved cars ever created in the USA. The 1957 Chevrolet was introduced by Chevrolet in September 1956 for the 1957 model year, and was available in (3) series models: the upscale Bel Air, the mid-range ’210’, and the base model ‘150’.
‘Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is thrilled to offer you this absolutely gorgeous rotisserie restored 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible finished in its factory original (Code 799) Tropical Turquoise wrapped around a beautiful factory correct (Code 680) Turquoise & Ivory interior! The recipient of a no-expense spared nut & bolt frame off restoration, this amazing ’57 Bel Air Convertible only has 650 miles since completion and shows ‘as new’ throughout! The 100% rust-free original sheet metal is laser straight all the way around the car, and the Tropical Turquoise paint is simply stunning w/ a deep lustrous shine! All of the chrome, stainless trim, grille, etc. are in show quality condition throughout! The white convertible top fits beautifully and is as nice as the rest of the car. She sits on the original 14” wheels w/ factory correct faux-spinner wheel covers wrapped with BF Goodrich 7.50 x 14 wide white-wall tires. This vehicle was restored to the highest standards possible with no stone left unturned and no corners cut whatsoever. Countless man-hours were spent to make sure that this ’57 Bel Air Convertible looked as though it just rolled off of the assembly line.
