Used 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

Here's the best way to bring Chevy icons together. This is a pristinely restored 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air coupe on the outside, but underneath the skin, are the best modern upgrades you could want, including an LT1 fuel-injected V8 swap.It's hard to go wrong with a custom '57 Chevy hardtop dressed in a slick black. But what makes the paint truly exceptional is the treatment the body received in its frame-off restoration a few years ago. That means serious investment in massaging the panels so that they are super-straight and ripple-free. This also means precision gaps all around the car, which allow you to shut the doors with confidence every time. On an American icon this nice, only the best and correct brightwork will do. All of it looks amazing from the beautiful bumpers, to the gold anodized pieces that correctly point to potent V8 under the hood. But, you also want to tell the world that this is a seriously upgraded classic. So you add some great hints like the big bright Coys wheels that fill the wheel wells, with staggered tire sizes to emphasize the power coming out the back.
