Over the past century, Chevrolet has produced many iconic vehicles. One of the most recognizable of these icons has to be the 1957 Chevy Bel Air. It must have been a rush to find this pink ’57 two door. The seller found this car parked in Kansas, bought it, did some work to it, and has now decided to let it go. The car is now in Winona, Minnesota and can be found here on eBay.
The Bel Air was one of Chevy’s more upscale vehicles and was offered with a variety of options. Engine options included a six cylinder, a 265 cui V8, and a 283 cui V8 with a variety of carburetor configuration and even fuel injection. This car still has its original 283 V8 with a rebuilt four barrel carburetor, which is good for about 220 hp. The seller has already done the necessary mechanical work to get the car running and they claim it drives well.
The inside of this car looks solid, but needs some work. The floors are starting to show rust, but we couldn’t find any holes or serious spots in them. After a good cleaning and a set of new carpets, this interior would look fantastic. We aren’t sure if this interior is completely original or not, but it looks good.
As you can see, this car is still wearing its original paint, but has rust in the rockers. These cars are in high demand and this one looks like it would make for a great starting point for a project. We don’t know what the seller has set their reserve at, but bidding is starting at $200 and hopefully the reserve is low. Which body style do you like better? The two door coupe, convertible, or the Nomad Wagon?
