Fully Restored! Original Color! Documented! Period Correct GM 283ci & Powertrain


1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

VIN: VC57K161828

This '57 Bel Air spent most of its life in Indiana and was stored inside a state-of-the-art garage. It has all of its original body panels and maintains its period correct aesthetics. The car was then restored in 1992 by the owner at the time, taking their time with every component. The next owner bought the finished car and owned it until April of 2015, during that time period they rebuilt the motor and transmission. Within the last year, countless new parts have been added and period correct parts were also replaced.
