1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
2-Door Hardtop

Model Year History Overview:
This was the first and only year Chevrolet offered a fuel-injected V-8 engine, a feature very advanced for its day.  The 1957 Chevrolet is one of the most popular American cars built even though this was the first year Ford out sold it.  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 car has the original documented miles.  A complete frame-off restoration was done in the early 1980’s.  Stainless exhaust, Martin’s of Philadelphia Premium Chrome.  The body is mirror straight, and drives and sounds like a true fuel car should.  This has to be one of the top “Fuel” cars in the country.
