For sale in our St. Louis showroom is an iconic 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible. I will go ahead and say this; no manufacturer will ever make a convertible as pleasing as this again. 1957 was the last year of the second generation body style for the Bel Air. It seems as if they stopped because they knew it couldn't get any better. In '57 Chevrolet introduced the 283 CID V8 engine that produced 283 HP. The option of a fuel injected engine was available and is quite rare these days. This Bel Air offers a carbureted 283 V8 engine backed by a 3-spd manual transmission. Both are numbers matching and original to the car. This is an actual mile vehicle as well. At 104,772 original miles, this Bel Air stills holds its original charm. In 2002 the Bel Air was completely restored. The car has just 8,000 miles since it was rebuilt. Boasting its original colors, the Chevy shows beautifully in gloss black and is surrounded by chrome. Looking inside the red and silver interior takes you right back to the 50s. Have a seat, turn the key, and operate the automatic convertible top switch and you'll be wondering why haven't you done this before? The red and silver vinyl interior is paired well with a white convertible top. Options include: AM radio, vinyl interior, wide white walls, and knock off style hub caps. The â??57 Chevy is one of the most recognized icons in the Automotive industry. Stylish and Sporty the thereâ??s no doubt that itâ??s one of Americaâ??s best and most loved cars. Here's the chance of owning a piece of American history that still serves a purpose. Put on the white rimmed sunglasses and enjoy.
