1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible 283 CI V-8 engine


Description

283 CI V-8 engine
4-barrel carburetor

Continental kit

The body is a done in Tropical Turquoise complemented by a brushed-metal side spear and matched white soft top. This theme continues into the interior, which features the same two-tone combination rendered in cloth and vinyl. Driving enjoyment comes from the power steering and brakes, and the top is also a power accessory. In the dash with its Bel Air callouts is a Wonderbar radio and in-dash clock. On the exterior, the list is extensive, as this car plays host to the continental kit, exhaust tips, lower trunk trim and rocker moldings, bumper guards, dual rear antenna, door-handle nail guards, dual mirrors and gold accent Chevrolet callouts. A set of rear fender skirts complete the classic look of “See America First” beauty, covering in part the deluxe spinner-design hubcaps and upgraded wide whitewall radial tires. Examining the package in its entirety gives one the sense that this was perhaps the ultimate in styling during the three brief years now known as the Tri-Five era. This is a car whose true purpose was to enjoy life, and it should well live up to that expectation going forward.
