Gorgeous black 1957 Chevrolet BelAir Sport Coupe built in the Norwood assembly plant in January 1957. It has standard brakes, manual steering, and original 3-speed transmission shift on the column.
I've owned the car since the mid 80's when it was totally off-the-frame restored. The then owner took it to a Classic Chevy International show and got knocked by the judges because the underside of the floor was painted flat black. He was ticked and sold the car.
In 2011 and 2012, I spent another $28,000 for a total refresh including strip, correct metal prep, and refinish with single stage PPG black urethane. A new interior by Cars in correct red and black was installed. All components of engine, with the exception of the short block, are original as came with the car (heads, intake manifold, WCFB carburetor, air cleaner, exhaust manifolds, timing chain cover, & distributor). It now has less than 3000 miles on it. All of its chrome was redone, all of its stainless trim polished, and its brakes completely rebuilt. It has a new water pump and new radiator. Its carburetor has been rebuilt, front suspension rebuilt, third member & suspension removed and refinished, underside of floors refinished in correct red oxide, inside trunk stripped & painted, had its engine completely detailed, and much more. It is one of the best nearly bone stock '57s you will ever see for under $75,000. Email me for lots more photos.
