Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1957

This is a 1957 Chevy BelAir two door hardtop pro touring style show car. It was professionally built. Health conditions require me to sell it before ever having much of a chance to show it more
than a few times since it's completion in 2012. It has won awards at every show in which it was entered including two Goodguys shows where it won the Tri-Five Chevy Pick and an Eckler's Classic Chevy show where it won First Place 1957 Trailered Custom and received one of their platinum certificates scoring 993 points out of 1000. It would have scored higher but little things cost it points like the reverse lights not working. They do now. All other issues have been addressed too. Everything works on the car. The LS2 engine is from a 2006 Corvette that had just 800 miles on it when the dealer sold the owner an LS7 to install in place of the car's original LS2. Someone had ordered a LS7 crate motor and put down a deposit but was unable to complete the deal. So the dealer sold that LS7 to one of their recent Corvette customers, and I bought the LS2 that was in his Corvette originally. I have only put a total of 401 miles on the car since its completion. Here are some of the its more important features:
  • Frame-off rotisserie restored
