AN AMERICAN CLASSIC! FULLY RESTORED AND GORGEOUS! DUAL 4 BARREL CARBS WITH CORRECT "BATWING" AIR CLEANER! One of the most iconic cars ever! The 1957 Chevy was basically a carry-over from the highly successful 1955 and 1956 models. Minor changes included a wide chromed grille, rear tailfins and new dashboard. Having both performance and great looks, the 1957 Chevrolets were immensely popular. Ed Cole, chief designer for Chevrolet at the time, orchestrated the minor face-lift, including the new grille, hood rockets, and front bumper bullets. A relocation of air ducts to the headlight pods resulted in the classic chrome headlight bezels. The face-lifted Chevrolet was ready for sale by October 1956. Similar to the 1957 Cadillac, the rear fenders got tall but stylish tailfins. To help keep the clean lines of the car, the fuel-filler door was concealed in the left rear fin. A switch from 14-inch wheels to 15-inch wheels helped give the car a better stance. The 1957 Bel Air featured gold trim on the front grille, front fender chevrons, and hood and trunk script. The V-shaped trim on the tailfins was filled with a ribbed stainless steel insert exclusive to the 1957 Bel Air models.
