The Model: In early 1955, just as the quickly re-worked the 1956 Chevrolets had been finalized, work was started on the 1957 edition. Corporate HQ had already dictated that 1957 would have to be face-lift of the 1956, that’s all that was in the budget. Rumors were flying that the other two members of the low-priced three would have brand new cars with ground-breaking designs. Mackichan’s team went to work and the finished product was a master-piece. Only because Ford pushed to produce and dump low-line models on their dealers, did the best Chevrolet’s numbers, and then only by a slim margin. The iconic look of the Chevrolet, with its impressive and beautiful up-front grille and bumper design, the the finely crafted and distinctive side trim, made the 1957 Belair and instant classic. To celebrate this new look the popular small-block V8 introduced in 1955, was enlarged to 283 cubic inches and came in six flavors of horsepower. From the base two-barrel, the Power-Pack 4-barrel, a pair of dual four-barrel engines and another pair of V8’s with fuel-injection, made Chevrolet the car performance minded buyers most often turned to. Top of the lne was the Belair convertible with 47,562 being produced.
The Car: Color is everything with cars from the 1950’s. While some collectors can only see red, it takes a true patron of beauty to look at the wide range offered from the palette offered by the 1957 Chevrolet. This stunning example is finished in Colonial Cream, a light yellow that is accented with seat bolsters finished in matching vinyl complimented by silver vinyl inserts. Showing just over 90,000 miles, which are believed to be from new, this car has been lightly used and always kept in top condition. A new top was recently added and it was recently re-worked to accept lead-free gas pumping through those dual four-barrel carbs. While the bat-wing style air-cleaner is the center of attraction under the hood, the entire engine compartment has been restored to better-than-new in appearance and function. The interior is well appointed with factory AM radio, heater-defroster and clock with even the luggage compartment looking fresh and new. This 1957 Belair convertible is really a cut-above the regular crowd in its appearance, performance and iconic design. This Tri-Five has gone through an extensive body-on frame-up restoration and is absolutely stunning!
Drive it anywhere and take yourself back to a time of American pride and opulence.
