Description:

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 150

I have a bunch of paperwork and receipts for all the work done on this car.

It was purchased in Sylacauga AL from the original owner around 1991 by a guy named John Holleman from Montgomery AL.

John told me the car had only 30,000 miles on it and was a rust free car. He sold it to Wayne Smith of Vintage Autos in Montgomery. Wayne did the engine swap from a 6 cylinder along with paint and interior in 1992-1993. The car has been driven approximately 1150 miles since then. It has a 1957 283 with the correct 997 270hp heads, solid lifter cam, dual quad intake and carter carbs along with an original bat wing oil bath air cleaner. The underside is painted red oxide. Harbor Blue is the original color. The Harbor Blue paint is still holding up well for an almost 25 year old single stage lacquer job. We did have to repaint the Larkspur blue with basecoat and clear as it was dried out at cracking. There are some minor paint chips and a place on the passenger side rocker arm where the paint flaked off and you can see the red primer. The car still has the original 3 on the tree manual transmission and stock open rear end. It should have a rubber mat rather than carpet.

This is an unmolested car with all original body panels, floors and trunk. There is no sign of any body work or repair done to any of the sheet metal.

Since I took these images, the car has been driven about 200 miles. I have also added new control arm bushings and front shocks.

The car does need a few things like window felts. It still has the originals. It really needs a good detailing to the engine and undercarriage. There is some chrome peeling from under the front bumper on the lower passenger side.

There is a local airport in Springfield IL if you want to fly in to inspect. I would be happy to provide a ride from the airport or you could uber or taxi in.
