1957 Chevy Bel Aire

One of my favorite cars of course is a ’57 Chevy and I finally got to flesh out one in words, pictures and ‘video’ (from the 50s.

Gordy’s red ‘57 Chevrolet Bel Aire ragtop, with a Continental kit caught my eye. It has a 283 with Powerglide and power steering bur regular brakes. This ‘numbers matching’ car has only 100 miles since a frame-off restoration to factory original except Gordy swapped out the 18″ ‘bus wheel’ for a 14″ for driver room. He’d traded in a ’40 Ford. This Bel Aire had been bought from a fellow in Texas who’d gotten it at a Mecum Auction.
