This 1957 Chevrolet 210 hardtop is a seriously fresh restoration with less than 550 miles on it since completion. And they upgraded it with extra V8 power, overdrive transmission, an A/C interior, power windows, and a terrific Bel Air appearance. If that wasn't enough to get you excited, then just check out all the detail work, including the undercarriage!
A '57 Chevy is a car that will always be in demand, but the right one already has the best features ready to hit the road. That's why we love this coupe that's fresh from a restoration. That means the red paint is extra vibrant and the panels are super-straight. All the brightwork is complete, including the iconic front end, fan-style rear trim, factory wheel covers, and the trim around the windows that draw extra attention to the desirable pillarless hardtop. And beyond just the brightwork, this has all the best details that will keep people talking. The whitewall tires coordinate with the white roof; there's rear fender skirts and dual aerials; and you have the gold trim upgrade that was on the best Bel Airs. It's a true attention-getter.
A hardtop means you get to roll down all the windows for people to get good view inside, so you want an interior as nice as this. They invested inside to make sure the interior was as fresh-feeling as the exterior. It has the correct button-top look with the red and black two-tone on the seats. And this coordinates with the door panels and carpeting. The dash has a nice classic look, right down to the radio. But below that you can see the vents for the upgraded R134a air conditioning cleanly installed. That's particularly nice on this coupe, because it's a power windows car. So any time you want (including in the summer) you can take down all the windows and show off the hardtop profile, and do it without leaving the driver's seat. The steering wheel has the cool classic look, but beyond that are a full set of updated Classic Instruments gauges that includes a tach. It gets you ready for something special under the hood.
The engine bay is an extra tidy setup that shows off more of this thoughtful and fresh restoration. These Tri-Five Chevys are the cars that launched the famous small block, but they never got anything as powerful as this. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8, and it has been enhanced with a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that feed the sweet-sounding dual exhaust. Plus, this has the right supporting components like upgraded pulleys, upgrades brackets, and serpentine belt. And the large aluminum radiator with dual electric fans help keep this one running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. It seems like this was built to be a classic that can be driven anywhere. That's why you also have great driving features, like power brakes w/discs up front, power steering, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive.
