The 1957 Chevrolet is a car that was introduced by Chevrolet in September 1956 for the 1957 model year. It was available in three series models: the upscale Bel Air, the mid-range Two-Ten, and the One-Fifty.   A two-door station wagon, the Nomad, was produced as a Bel Air model. An upscale trim option called the Delray was available for Two-Ten 2-door sedans. It is a popular and sought after classic car. These vehicles are often restored to their original condition and sometimes modified. The car’s image has been frequently used in toys, graphics, music, movies, and television. The ’57 Chevy, as it is often known, is an auto icon.

This Chevy Bel Air is finished in tropical turquoise and ivory white two tone how it came from factory. The 283 was replaced by a 350 cubic in motor and a 350 3 speed transmission. The car also had factory power steering, but front disc brakes were added for extra safety along with a the under dash vintage air conditioning for comfort.  The vehicle rides an Chevy slotted steel rims 7X15 front and 8X15 rear  on Goodyear tires. The restoration was completed in December of 2003 and still looks good today.
