Presented here is a 283c.i., 250HP matching numbers "Fuelie" 1957 Bel Air Sport Coupe. This automobile is largely unmolested and is still in extremely nice shape. The black paint shows some wear and tear but presents very nicely for an original car of this age. All of the bright-workand glass is original, intact and totally intact. Factory panel fitment is still found all around and every door and compartment opens and closes just as you would expect.

The interior is absolutely beautiful shape showing almost no wear and tear on the seats and upholstery at all. The original Chevrolet floor mats are included and in beautiful shape still. Carpets all around have no major wear and are very clean. The headliner has no rips and is still tight against the steel roof. The paint on the dashboard is largely unfaded and looks absolutely stunning. Sitting in this car is like stepping back in time, it is quite a difference from being in a restored car. Even all the weatherstripping and seals are original and in great condition.

Most of these cars did not survive with all of their fuel injection systems intact because it was hard to find mechanics that were able to tune them properly in their day. Because of this, it is very rare to find a survivor fuelie such as this one. Multiple experts have looked over this car and confirmed it to be all original and correct for its year. This particular car has also been used by many as a reference to base their restorations on, as there are very few examples left that are this original. While this car has been converted to a manual transmission, it includes the original automatic transmission and it has been freshly rebuilt. Every automatic transmission ancillary component is included and nothing on the car has been changed that cannot be undone.

All of the fuel injection components are original to the car. The Rochester 4520 fuel injection unit has been serviced recently. It has always run well with minor tuning done every now and then. The 2nd owner, who bought it in late Fall 1957 (the first owner was a young man and for whatever reason his father made him return it to the dealership), said that he was informed that this car was a factory demonstrator to promote the sales of fuel injection passenger cars and because of this they made sure that it had the best components installed to keep it running flawlessly. After the factory reps were done the car was sent to a dealership near Omaha, Nebraska where it was sold. The 2nd owner was asked if he had the original dealer paperwork for the car but it ended up getting lost or misplaced. He did a notarized "Verification of Authenticity" for the previous owner regarding his history with the car. He had also written a note to the previous owner detailing pretty much the same info. These documents go with the car. This car still has all of the ORIGINAL peripheral FI components:

- Vacuum wiper motor with the Electro-vac switch.

- Metal clip (on the firewall) to hold the electric choke "pig tail" fuel injection-only

wiring harness/connector for the air meter.

- Air intake hose bracket that is attached to the driver-side radiator support. Most of

these original brackets ended up missing or tossed aside in about 99.9% of the

original passenger car fuelies so this is an extremely rare, very hard-to-find item

and very, very expensive if ever available. This item is definitely NOT a repro.

- Electro-vac (with the original Trico string tag) affixed by clutch head screws to the

radiator support.

- Passenger-side exhaust manifold with no choke tube hole drilled- fuelies only.

- Original metal band to attach the air intake hose to the air cleaner.

- 3/8-inch fuel line.

- Original air cleaner with repro 4-inch flex air hose.

- Original fuel filter.

- Original 906 distributor.

- It has a later model fuel pump but a correct long-screw fuel pump goes with the car.
