Frame Off, Nut & Bolt Restored! GM 468ci V8, 700R4 Auto, 4-Link, 4-Wheel Disc

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod

VIN: C57F274180

We purchased this beautiful '57 Chevy in KY from the gentleman who did the full nut & bolt restoration. By trade, this gentleman is a millwright and his attention to precision obviously was applied during this frame off, nut & bolt restoration. This car retains all its original sheet metal, except for the floor pan, which was repaired with a full pan replacement. The two-tone red with black top paint is show quality and all the stainless trim and chrome are in excellent condition as well; 90% of trim and bright-work is original to the car. The engine is a fresh 468ci hooked up to a 700R4 od transmission with a 9" rear end, loaded with Moser axles. All this is tied in with a 4-link suspension and mini-tubbed rear end. During the restoration, all the new steering components and suspension, along with body mounts, were replaced. All new 4-wheel disc brakes were installed and finished off with billet specialities wheels and Mickey Thompson radial tires. The interior is all-new with custom leather and power bucket seats. Finally, this sedan was treated to a new gauge cluster and crystal clear glass.
