1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Gasser
Red Hills Rods and Choppers is very proud to bring you this absolutely gorgeous 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Gasser, professionally built to be a perfect period correct example of the machines that ruled the drag-strips of the 1960’s! We truly feel that this is one of the finest ‘Gassers’ available anywhere at any price! Featured in the new ‘Street Rodder’ magazine, this beautiful Chevrolet will make your eyes pop out of your skull when you see it in person. The craftsmanship & detail that went into this creation shows at every level. As with any classic/custom car, the body & paint are always the most important aspect, because it doesn’t matter how much trick stuff that you do to the car, without perfect body & paintwork, you will never have a show-winning vehicle. All of the sheet metal on this beautiful 1957 Chevrolet is laser straight from front to back and from top to bottom. The gloss black paint is absolutely stunning and looks as though it’s a mile deep! I have never seen a more perfectly straight ’57 Chevy in my life! All of the chrome & stainless trim is new and show quality throughout, including the cool Nomad bumper. A black vinyl top was added, which I think looks extremely cool and really makes the car stand out. The original frame & floors are as solid as you can get! All of the front suspension is completely chromed-out including chrome Speedway axle, chrome leaf springs, chrome Vega steering box, chrome steering arms, chrome shocks w/ chrome mounts, EVERYTHING is chrome! The custom one-off frame rails up front look incredible and really show the craftsmanship that went into this car. When you crawl inside the car, you will immediately realize that the same attention to detail that went into the exterior, made its way into the interior. The factory black & grey bench seat interior is absolutely MINT throughout w/ creature comforts that you usually do not find in a ‘Gasser’. Features include: Tilt Steering Column w/ Mooneyes Steering Wheel, Dash-Mounted Mooneyes Tachometer, Hurst Floor-Shifter, All-Original Dash w/ Newer Gauges Under Dash, Vintage AC & Heat Inside the Glove Box and Custom AM/FM/CD/USB Sound System completely hidden under the seat! The super comfortable, highly functional interior is absolutely beautiful and everything works beautifully! The Vintage AC blows cold and the Sound System sounds awesome! The trunk is factory correct in appearance w/ rubber mat and trunk mounted battery w/ charger. Now, let’s discuss the heart of this beast. Under the hood and inside the beautifully detailed engine bay, lies the Blown 350 ci SBC engine which is completely chromed out! Features include: Dyers 6.71 Blower, 10.5:1 Pistons (Runs Great on Pump Gas!), Mooneyes Finned Valve Covers, Dual Quick Fuel 750 cfm Carburetors, Comp Cam, Roller Rockers, Mallory Distributor, 8-Quart Oil Pan, Doug’s Fenderwell Headers w/ Full Powder Coated Exhaust System, Lower-Mount Air Conditioning Compressor and on and on! Again, everything is chromed-out & polished. The Dyers Blower is under-driven about 7% and the motor delivers approximately 600HP! This awesome power plant is linked to a Muncie M21 4-Speed Manual Transmission w/ Scatter Shield, which delivers power to the stock Chevrolet rear end featuring boxed leaf springs, extended shackles, air-shocks, and 4.11 gears. She starts, idles, runs & performs beautifully in every way and runs nice & cool no matter how hot it is outside. But let me tell you, when its time to go fast, she SCREAMS! This ‘Gasser’ has got tons of power & torque and sounds as good as she looks! The full Flowmaster powder-coated exhaust system has the perfect rumble and everyone makes comments about how incredible she sounds. Wilwood front disc brakes help slow this beautiful machine down in a hurry. She sits on Halibrand wheels (15X8 on the rear & 15X4 up front) w/ Hurst Cheater Slicks on the rear. This is a turnkey show car that can be driven anywhere that you choose. Whether you want to drive & enjoy it, or win First Place trophies at any national level car event, this ‘Gasser’ is the one to own! This is a very special vehicle that will not be duplicated. Do not hesitate because she will not last long! Enclosed shipping is available anywhere in the world at the buyer’s expense.
