Offered here is a built not bought 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible. It was a fully built steel car as a company showcase vehicle for EMI (Experi-Metal Inc.) of Sterling Heights, Michigan. EMI is credited for designing the Tesla all aluminum bodies and the new aluminum alloy 2015-current Ford F150 bodies. They are the leader in body design for the large auto manufactures and set the standard, and have taken Best in Show for their creative builds at SEMA.
This car began its life in 1990 and was built on all C4 Corvette running gear. In 2006, it won the Detroit Autorama and was given the International New Product Award at SEMA. It is a beautiful example that you can enjoy on the open road. And it does have a real 1957 Title from and a real 1957 VIN so even the pickiest of car show patrons won't know its not a true Bel Air.
The car is finished in stunning Silver over a two-tone Silver and Black interior with a Black soft top. It is powered by a Corvette fuel-injected LS1 5.7L V8 with a 700 automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The car features power windows, power convertible top, AC, power steering, power brakes, front and rear disc brakes, Chrome Corvette wheels, and a 10-disc CD changer in the trunk. Last fall the radiator was replaced as well as new plugs, new injectors, new alternator, and had a fresh oil change. The car fired on command and runs strong. It get looks and thumbs up wherever driven.
It is a beautifully assembled Bel Air. The body is all steel and very clean. Be sure to check out 200 photos and video walk-around of the car running on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
