For many car enthusiasts in their 50s or older, the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is one of the most desirable classic cars there is. The ’57 Chevy Bel Air was a full-size vehicle that was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors. This vehicle was part of the second generation of Chevys and was called the “Hot One” in GM’s advertising campaign.
Motor Trend Magazine gave the ’57 Chevy Bel Air top marks for handling. In 1957 the Chevy’s engine displacement grew to 283 cu in with the “Super Turbo Fire V-8” option producing 283 horsepower with the help of continuous mechanical fuel injection. These so-called “fuelie” cars are quite rare today, since most Bel Airs were fitted with carburetion.
The ’57 Chevy Bel Air is among the most recognizable American cars of all time, and well-maintained vehicles, especially Sport Coupes and Convertibles, are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. The most popular color back then and still today is Gypsy Red, especially in the convertible form. Red and silver paint and upholstery typically decorated the car’s fresh-looking interior.
