1957ChevyThe 1957 Chevrolet was available in three official trim levels: the base-model "one-fifty" series, the mid-range "two-ten" series, and the upscale Bel Air series. An upscale trim option called the "Delray" was available for two-ten 2-door sedans. A limited production two-door station wagon called the "Nomad" was produced as a Bel Air. A fourth designation was also available in limited quantities, the "El Morocco", a custom hand-build mimicking the Cadillac of the era.

1957Chevy The 1957 Chevrolet was a carry-over from 1955, when Chevrolet introduced its now-famous small-block V-8 the first V-8 available in a Chevrolet since 1918. The first Chevy V8 in 1955 was 265 ci (cubic inches). With the new V-8 engine for 1955, Chevrolet wanted to offer a new car design as well. The "shoebox" design, so named because it was the first Chevrolet to feature streamlined rear fenders, was a watershed for Chevrolet. The lightweight car coupled with a powerful V-8 became a showroom draw, but also thrust the company into the arena of competitive motorsports. 1955 Chevrolets went on to dominate drag racing and became a formidable force in circle track racing. In 1956, the design was lengthened somewhat in front and given a more squarish treatment; under the hood, engine power increased and a Chevrolet Corvette engine was available for the first time in a full-size passenger car.

1957Chevy Originally, General Motors executives wanted an entirely new car for 1957, but production delays necessitated the carry-over of the 1955 design for one more year. Ed Cole, chief designer for Chevrolet at the time, dictated a series of changes that significantly increased the cost of the car. These changes included a new dashboard, reshaped windshield, sealed cowl, and the relocation of air ducts to the headlight pods, which resulted in the distinctive chrome headlight that helped make the '57 Chevy a classic. Fourteen-inch wheels replaced the fifteen-inch wheels from previous years to give the car a lower stance, and a wide grille was used to give the car a wider look from the front. The now famous '57 Chevy tailfins were designed to duplicate the wide look in the rear. Bel Air models were given gold trim: the grille, front fender chevrons, hood, and trunk script were all rendered in anodized gold. The V-shaped trim on the tail fins was filled with a ribbed aluminum insert exclusive to the Bel Air. The small block V8 was larger at 283 cubic inches for 1957.

Body choices for 1957 included the typical 2- and 4-door sedan (identified by the "posts" between door windows), the two-door hardtop (the car has no post between the front and back window when the windows are lowered), the four-door hardtop (also known as a sports sedan), the utility coupe (a two-door sedan with a package shelf instead of a rear seat), two styles of two-door station wagon, the top-of-the-line Bel Air Nomad with a sloped pillar behind the hardtop door and sliding windows at the rear seat, and the basic Handyman with an upright sedan B-pillar and a C-pillar where the four-door wagons have one, available only in 150 and 210 trims. The four-door, six-passenger station wagon, the four-door, nine-passenger station wagon (both called Townsman in the 150 series and Beauville for the Bel Air version), and the convertible. Unlike most competitors, the Chevrolet four-door hardtop featured a reinforced rear roof structure that gave the car added rigidity and a unique appearance in silhouette.

It is quite possible that the 1957 Chevy was influenced by the styling of the 1955 Cadillac El Dorado, for they bear many styling similarities. This 57 is an original Bel Air sedan. It is equipped with a 283 cubic inch V8, and a four barrel carburetor. Ceramic coated Hooker headers were installed along with a complete 2-1/2" mandrel bent exhaust system and turbo mufflers. The original 3 speed manual transmission was removed in favor of a GM Turbo 350 automatic. A crossmember from a 68 Camaro was utilized fabricating and welding new mounts to the chassis. The driveshaft was shortened and a Lokar shifter was installed. The interior is tastefully done and the exterior is in beautiful shape.
