1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-Door Hardtop

Model Year History Overview:
The 1957 Chevrolet is one of the most popular American cars built---even though this was the first year Ford out-sold Chevrolet since the Model A.  Its unique styling caught on and remains today as the outstanding classic automobile of the 1950’s.  Properly equipped this car was, and is a formidable competitor on the race track.  Chevy did quite well on NASCAR and the other circuits.  At the 1957 Daytona Speed weeks it added more achievements.  In Class 4 (213 to 259 cid) they won the first three places in the flying mile; in Class 5 (259 to 305 cid) they took 33 out of 37 places.  A feat no other manufacturer could come close to matching.
This is an original un-restored car (except for the deck lid and roof top repainted).  A rare California car with all original parts and accessories with no dents or repairs.
This car had three prior owners.  The first owner was Ms. Frances A. Furlong of San Francisco, California who purchased it on August 14, 1957 from Les Vogle Chevrolet of San Francisco.  She was 60 years old at the time of purchase.  Her original first driver’s license showing September 29, 1898 as her date of birth is on file.  Also on file are the original registration, selling dealership salesman’s card, battery warranty, insurance documents, radiator tag, dealer sales paperwork, and the “Black” license plates with the car they’re issued to for the life of the car.  The last year they issued “Black” license plates was in 1969.
