1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-dr post

Classics  /   /  By Chad Tyson  /  By Chad Tyson

This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air post just screams Americana, with its trademark fins, bright red paint, and chrome Torq-Thrust-style wheels. If you’re looking to turn heads, this could be the car for you.

The seller says the car is in excellent driver condition. It’s fitted with a fresh GM Goodwrench 350-ci crate engine and TCI TH350 automatic transmission, which should make issues minor and parts easy to source, and it has new exhaust from front to back. The seller also notes updated front spindles with disc brakes and tapered bearings, a 605 power steering box, and new leaf springs in the rear. All of this adds up to a car you’d be able to take anywhere completely in control.

You’ll arrive in comfort as well. The seats and headliner are recently redone in pleasantly contrasting red and black suede. The carpet is also new. An aluminum Ididit steering column features a 15-inch steering wheel replacing the original, larger 18-inch one. This will allow clearance between you and the wheel, as well as a more modern feel in your hands.

Recent sales on eBay Motors have shown 1955-1957 Bel Air post cars averaging from $15k to $25k, depending on condition. Click here to see this one’s auction listing.
