Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1957

This 1957 Chevrolet 150 Restomod exemplifies the very best qualities of a skillfully modded classic. It offers a great blend of vintage magnetism and modern technology for a finished result you can't turn away from while offering an unbeatable experience behind the wheel. The Chevys of this era remain among the most coveted of all classics - and with its high impact black basecoat combining with a strong clearcoat for a wet-looking, glossy shine, this '57... is one sterling representative of the model at its best. While the color can often be a mixed bag - in that it definitely makes a strong statement but can also amplify any flaws that may exist - there are no such worries here. Take a lap around and you won't find anything to diminish your enthusiasm. It's been kept in almost entirely stock configuration - with a set of very sharp aftermarket wheels being the only notable variation - after all, there's no need to mess with a look that's attracted such a legion of admirers over the decades. The collection of chrome on display here is clean and unblemished, with the signature side trim and Chevrolet lettering on the front fenders really popping against the dark backdrop of the rest of the car. Climb inside and prepare to be blown away. There's some impressive craftsmanship on display inside these doors - we see our fair share of skilled customization cross our paths, but this interior is a standout. You'll find top quality red leather upholstery everywhere you look, and the added modern design elements blend nicely with vintage sensibilities. Bucket seats in both front and back create a unique and comfortable driving environment for driver and passengers alike and a show-stopping center console extends backward to partition the rear bucket seats and has been incorporated perfectly into its surroundings. A modern, Chevy-branded steering wheel provides a great feel and sits on a sharp chrome Ididit tilt column, and the dash area beyond it is in stellar condition, featuring a complement of Classic Instrument gauges in the instrument panel and a Retro-sound radio on board to provide your soundtrack while on the road. An aftermarket climate control system has been cleanly installed and is functioning in top form for maximum comfort. With the 502 cubic inch monster of an engine under the hood manufacturing a horse per square inch, this iconic Chevy has boundless power. Outfitted with a Holley 4-barrel carb, the engine sends an authoritative exhaust note out of its aftermarket headers, teaming with a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission to provide a superb hands-on driving experience. The 3.70 ratio Posi-traction rear end brings excellent off the line acceleration and combines with the transmission's overdrive gear for low RPM highway cruising while putting this Chevy's outstanding power to the pavement as efficient as possible. Up front, a sizable aluminum Be Cool radiator with an overflow tank helps keep operating temperatures under control. The steering on this timeless cruiser has been upgraded to a modern power rack and pinion unit, so the handling is nice and precise, without the slop that vintage steering boxes often suffer from. Disc brakes at all four corners, with Wilwood calipers in front, bring this Chevy's set of 17" American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped with fresh-looking Kumho tires to dependable, fade-resistant stops. The undercarriage seems to be in very solid condition - well-suited to plenty more fun-filled miles ahead. Only a little over 300 miles past its build, this 1957 Chevrolet 150 Restomod displays exacting and inspired craftsmanship that will grab you right away and harbors all the power you could want for exhilarating acceleration.
