Description of 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Pro Touring

The 1957 Chevrolet 210 hardtop is iconic in its styling, and this is a fresh build that makes sure people instantly recognize that. But beneath the skin it carries upgrades like an enhanced suspension, A/C interior, overdrive, four-wheel disc brakes, and a fuel-injected V8 heart. It means that this stunner is also one heck of a pro touring driver.

This is a build that's so fresh that there's less than 100 miles on the odometer, and we even have over $40,000 in receipts over the last few years documenting a huge investment in this hardtop. That's how you get a car that looks so fresh and crisp. The trim tag tells us this is wearing its factory-correct Dusk Pearl, but the kind of gloss and shine this radiates is an instant indicator of a big investment in a modern respray. And the correct Imperial Ivory roof really shows off that pillarless profile so nicely. In fact, the roof gives this quite an interesting situation. You can see that this has been upgraded with the Bel Air's iconic fan-style tailfin treatment in the full-length trim. But since this is designated a 210 hardtop (they made less than the Bel Air hardtop) you the Bel Air look and extra rarity to enjoy, too. And all the rest of the brightwork has been given a solid investment during the restoration. Everything from the freshly-dipped big chrome bumpers, to the delicate jet-inspired dual hood ornaments all have an award-worthy shine. And while the overall look delivers on the legendary style that defines the American road, those upgraded Ridler alloys also signal this coupe is ready for the modern streets, too.

The interior is all about vintage style with the best upgraded expertly integrated. The upholstery looks terrific from the fresh investment. The white on the headliner, seat backs, and doors are a direct callback to the exterior roof color. Plus, the multi-tones of gray on the plush carpeting, cloth seat inserts, and matching door panels add a very tasteful look while providing a darker finish to high-traffic areas. That makes for a package that's both attractive and ready to hop in to go for a drive - exactly what pro touring car is all about. This also means you get the right upgrades, like the AM/FM stereo that has a great retro-style appearance, but it's really a modern digital tuner. And they cleanly added a full air conditioning system below the dash. The Budnik steering wheel may have an upgraded look and feel, but its high-polish finish goes perfectly with the dash and trim in this '50s style machine. And it's on a tilt column to give you an excellent view of the upgraded gauge package.

The engine bay could win awards all on its own. It's all about color-matched walls and polished components everywhere. But more than just look terrific, this V8 is ready to put down some serious power. This is GM's 5.7-liter RamJet fuel-injected crate motor that's rated at about 350 horsepower right out of the box. Plus, you have all the best supporting features, such as a March serpentine pulley system, American Auto Wiring harness, and a Champion aluminum radiator w/electric fans. This total power package exhales through a powder-coated X-pipe dual exhaust. And while you're checking out the exhaust in the undercarriage photos, don't forget to look at the suspension. This fresh build is made for modern moves with tubular control arms up front, a RideTech four-link rear with diagonal link, adjustable coilovers all-around, and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes. And because pro touring means awesome all-around driving, you also have power steering and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
