This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air two-door hardtop underwent refurbishment in the early 2000s and features a striking yellow finish with silver and black vinyl upholstery. It’s powered by a 283ci V8 engine paired with a two-speed automatic transmission. Notable features include a dual exhaust system, a four-barrel carburetor, wheel covers, and a push-button AM radio. Acquired by the seller in 2022, recent maintenance in July 2023 included coolant and brake fluid flushes, a new battery, new wheel cylinders, brake adjustments, and the installation of whitewall tires. The car comes with a clean Ohio title in the seller’s family trust name.

During its refurbishment, the car was painted yellow with a white roof. Exterior highlights include aluminum quarter-panel trim, hood-mounted wind splits, quarter vent windows, dual side mirrors, and a concealed fuel-filler door above the left taillight.

The 14″ yellow-painted steel wheels with faux knock-off covers were fitted with Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewall tires in July 2023, and a matching spare is in the trunk. Braking is managed by drums on all four wheels, with wheel cylinders replaced and brake fluid flushed in July 2023.

Inside, the cabin features silver vinyl bench seats with black patterned cloth inserts and silver piping, matching door panels, and black carpeting. Amenities include a heater, a dashboard-mounted clock, a dome light, and a push-button Wonder Bar radio with dashboard and rear parcel shelf speakers. The turn-signal stalk shows signs of wear.

The two-spoke steering wheel with a chrome horn ring fronts a 120-mph speedometer and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The five-digit odometer reads 79k miles, with about 1k miles added by the current owner; the true mileage is unknown.

The 283ci V8 engine, equipped with a four-barrel carburetor and a dual exhaust system, received a new battery and coolant flush in July 2023. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission.
