GORGEOUS BLACK, LT1 EFI SWAP,OD TRANS, FRAME OFF, A/C, PWR WIN/STEER/BRAKES, A+!

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.

It's pretty darn hard not to get excited about this interior. The black leather bench seats have a cool silver metallic insert that is a reminder you're driving a shining American icon every time you hop inside. This great custom color scheme is even repeated on the doors too. The black dash is in amazing shape, and someone spent a lot of time making the components work, including the upgraded AM/FM radio w/auxiliary input, heat/defrost controls, and even the clock! Below all of this are provisions for air conditioning, so you know this is genuinely a cool cruiser. But the one seat that matters the most belongs to the driver. You get a great black and chrome sports steering wheel, and beyond that is a full set of Classic Instruments gauges, which keeps you better informed about the motor. So that's a pretty good hint there is a lot going on in the engine bay.

The first Tri-Five Chevys were the dawn of the small block, but they were never given anything as powerful, or as turn key as this. It's an LT1 fuel-injected V8 out of a Camaro, another great Chevrolet icon. Best of all, the motor has been rebuilt only 1,147 miles ago, and it includes upgrades like a GM Performance Hot Cam kit, headers, and a Flowmaster dual exhaust. So, it not only looks spectacular with all of its bright elements in the engine bay, but also this one has some serious power and growl to back up its flashy appearance. Swaps like these aren't cheap, but the performance and reliability is well worth it! More than just performance, this one was built to handle highway cruising with features like the 4L60E four-speed overdrive automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and modern low profile tires at all four corners.

This is a custom build of an American icon that's clean all the way through (just check out the undercarriage photos!) Here's the hit of every cruise-in that's also reliable enough to take on the Power Tour. It's the kind of Bel Air that you've always wanted, and if you're quick enough, your reward is ready.
