Well Done: ’57 Chevy
We like the iconic ’57 Chevrolet Bel Air. And by iconic we mean when you think of drive-in hamburger joints or cruising down Woodward Avenue, you can picture a ’57 in your head. We had a superb original black, ’57 a few weeks ago. It had original paint and interior and was drop dead wonderful. We came across this one on Craigslist and although it is on the other end of the “original ” spectrum, we thought it was kind of neat. The Bel Air was originally purchased in Tucson and it appears to have been baked in the sun a little too long. The interior is original and probably can’t be saved either. What drew us to it is that it has a rare factory option Continental Wheel Carrier and Fender Skirts. Yes, you see plenty of ’57s with Continental kits but many of them have been dressed up by the restorer. It has a V-8 and the seller doesn’t state if it is a 283ci but we think it looks like one from the picture. The car looks pretty complete right down to the wheel covers. The seller is asking $25,000 for it in this condition. Is it possible to just get it running and leave it alone? Maybe that would be a pretty neat idea.
