Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1957

Not your typical Black Widow clone! The best way to describe this is a numbers-matching original restoration of an unmolested true Black & White 150model that came from Texas. All numbers match and the car with date codes supporting a mid-December, 1956 build date. The carretains its original VIN and Cowl tag to prove it.
While the car was being restored, most every period correct Nascar modification was done to it within reason, to keep it street legal and easy to drive and enjoy. With that in mind, it does not have the Rochester Fuel Injection, but instead has the more reliable 270HP with correct dual four WCFB, Duntov 097 cam, and 997 heads that were unique to dual four engines. Keeping it correct to the trim tag,it retainsa back seat and has lap belts for safety.It has the original Borg-Warner 3 speed manual transmission, with the shifter moved from the column to the floor using a period correct Fenton model.

All sheet metal on this car is original to it except the deck lid, which was taken from another rust free car. This is one of the most solid '57s I've ever restored. The odometer said 25k on it before the restoration, never really sure if this was 125k or not. I have pictures of the complete restoration so any questions can be answered. The car runs flawlessly and has been driven less than 5,000 miles since restoration. Call me at 502.542.7466 with any questions. Enclosed delivery available.
