This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is one of the most iconic American made automobiles of all time and just screams Americana! Starting in 1955, and culminating in 1957, Chevrolet built some of the most iconic American cars of all time, during an span known as the Tri-Five Chevy Era. The 1957 Bel Air is of course the ultimate, and last, Tri-Five Chevy! The 57 Bel Air was significantly updated stylistically and mechanically from the previous two years models. Up front, the 57 Chevy sported a flatter hood with dual wind splits sitting above a completely new grille and bumper design. Moreover, at the front of the new-look hood on the 1957 Bel Air was an elevated gold anodized V emblem along with a matching gold V emblem and gold Bel Air script on the trunk, differentiating the top-of-the-line Bel Air from the entry-level 150 and intermediate-level 210 models. Perhaps the most iconic attribute of the 57 Chevy Bel Air is most visible from a side profile; that being, a set of large fins protruding from the rear quarter panels that gave the the car its iconic silhouette. Additionally, the Bel Airs interior trim and dash design were the beneficiaries of a significant facelift in 1957. The 1957 Bel Air interiors were known as being the plushest and most luxurious across all of Chevrolets models since the Bel Air sat atop the GM marques hierarchy. The other substantial upgrade in 1957 for the Chevrolet Bel Air was the introduction of the 283 V8 engine which offered 18 additional cubic inches of displacement from the previous years 265 V8. Under the hood on this particular Bel Air is a 283 Cubic Inch V8 engine paired with a single 2 barrel carburetor that pushed out 185 horsepower when new. The 283 V8 is backed by an upgraded TH350 Automatic Transmission that makes this classic Chevy Convertible easy for anybody to drive.
