1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible
We have for sale a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible which is in excellent condition for its age. As a car that has hit it’s 50th birthday it is a pleasure to find a vehicle in this condition which has maintained its original condition throughout the years without major renovation. The vehicle has been owned by the same person for over 30 years and due to his deteriorating health he has decided to let this jewel find a new home! The vehicle had a frame on renovation by him back in the early 80’s and the color was changed from it’s original Dusk Pearl to it’s current yellow. Check out the photos and you can still see the original color under the trunk mat and also see a truly amazing original trunk floor! The car does run and drives and is driven on a regular basis during the summer to car shows, parades and many cruises with the grand children.
Here are the specifications on this car:
1957 Bel Air Convertible with 81500 miles

2 speed powerglide transmission
3:43 non posi traction rear end
Dusk Pearl Exterior color (Paint code 821)

The body on this car is in very restorable condition without having to replace any major sheet metal. You can tell by the photos of the underside of this car that it has been well taken care of over the years and has very few metal flaws.
The paint was redone in a yellow laquer and of course the laquer is in deteriorating condition and will need redone at the owners discretion. There appears to be a small amount of body filler in the car but should be an easy fix during the renovation process!
The convertible top has not been up for years so it has shrunk and will not latch onto the windshield. Chrome on this car is in very good condition although it will need some renovation and rechroming.
As with any 50 year old car with minimal renovation done in the past, the car will need some work to become a #1 show winner again. But with a little time and care this car could easily be the car of your dreams. So if you are looking for a car to renovate or one to just hop in and cruise around town, this car will meet your expectations. The owner is listing this truly amazing car at a price of $50,000, which is a very reasonable price due to the fact that renovated cars of this caliber are bringing well over $100,000! Please e-mail us and we will answer any questions and get you into contact with the owner. This car is located in Newton, Iowa. Thanks for visiting our web page.
