NewstalgiaMotors.com proudly presents a very unique example
of one of the most iconic and recognizable
American cars of all time, the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe.
All one has to do is mention "57" around a bunch of car guys or gals
and everyone will immediately identify these two numbers with the 1957 Chevrolet.
The brushed aluminum applique along the sides of those well-known fins,
the dual gun sight hood ornaments,
and those three chrome hash marks on the front enders
define the stereotypical style of the 1950s.
While the exterior appearance of this beautiful
Tropical Turquoise Bel Air has been restored to near perfect factory condition,
the engine, driveline and suspension have been professionally updated
to that of a late 1980s Corvette
making this multiple show winner a joy to drive and show.
Exterior: The very straight and solid body needed little if any rust or
accident repairs prior to the professional full frame-off restoration.
All body panels are laser-straight with uniform door, hood and trunk gaps.
The bright work, stainless trim, brushed aluminum applique,
emblems, rubber window and door seals, head lamp gaskets,
hood spears, and "California" one-piece bumpers have been re-plated,
refurbished, or replaced.
All soft ray tinted glass is without any blemishes.
The show quality custom mixed Tropical Turquoise base coat clear coat finish
resulted in a stunning finish throughout.
Interior: The luxurious interior features Oxford White and Cream Leather throughout,
including the headliner, door and trim panels, and visors.
Gray wool cut pile carpet and Custom matching floor mats.
A Vintage Air A/C, Heat and Defrost system makes cruising on warm summer days enjoyable.
Stock un-cut dash, instrument cluster and gauges.
A leather half-wrapped billet steering wheel tops the GM tilt steering column.
AM/FM Stereo with concealed speakers and power antenna.
Matching upholstered trunk.
The electrical system is without worry due to a new wiring harness.
Corvette power disc brakes and power steering.
Engine and Driveline: Under that classic '57 Bel Air hood lurks a 1987 5.7L, 350CI
Tuned-Port Injection (TPI) Corvette engine backed by a
700R4, 4-Speed Automatic Overdrive Transmission and a
stout Limited Slip positraction rear axle with a 3.07 gear ratio.
Custom cross-flow radiator and aluminum fan shroud,
Custom firewall, Corvette headers,
Corvette serpentine drive belt system,
HEI distributor, K & N Air Filter,
AC Delco 8 mm plug wires,
For superior handling, performance and appearance (cool factor)
front and rear clips from a 1987 C4 Corvette were professionally installed.
This conversion features: Steering: Rack and Pinion power assisted
Front Suspension: Single fiberglass composite monoleaf transverse spring
with unequal-length aluminum control arms and stabilizer bar
Rear Suspension: Fully independent five-link system with
transverse fiberglass single-leaf springs,
aluminum upper/lower trailing links and strut-rod tie-rod assembly
Brakes: Four-wheel power disc
Wheels and Tires: Billet Specialties Mirror Polished "GS Series" Wheels
riding on Yokohama P275/40ZR17 front and rear tires.
Now that you've seen this beauty, you can agree that the goal certainly
was met to preserve classic styling and appeal, but infuse it with modern technology
for the best handling and performance possible,
to make a real hybrid; one that has the best of both worlds.
