Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 15th – 19th, 2014 at Russo and Steele''s 14th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction. Classic, iconic, trendsetter, bestseller! These are all appropriate words to describe the ’57 Bel Air. Introduced in ’55, the "Tri-fives" were all new and the first Chevrolets to offer the new OHV 265 cu. in. small-block V-8. By ’57, engine size had been increased to 283 cu. in. and the rest they is history. Finished in Colonial Cream with a striking yellow and silver interior, this Bel Air convertible is powered by a 283/220 hp V-8 with Powerglide automatic transmission and clearly benefits from a complete, no-expense-spared rotisserie restoration. It is loaded with great features and options including power steering, power brakes, pushbutton AM radio, “Continental” kit, and fender skirts. The color combination is beautiful, very ’50s, and complements the car perfectly. Of course, looks aren’t everything. Get behind the wheel, start ’er up, set the "Way Back Machine" and glide on down the highway on the kind of trip only a full-size ’50s Chevy can provide! The car is a joy to drive with good power and response with everything working nicely, even the clock.
