Evolve Motors is pleased to present our gorgeous 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible 283 ci Powerpack 4bbl classic!

You are looking at a very fine example of a '57 Convertible with its original 283 ci Power Pack 4bbl motor and driveline. We bought this car from what we believe to be only the second owner (less than a year). The car was purchased from an older neighbor who had passed away. What began as a Colonial Cream colored car over a Yellow and Silver interior is now an all White car over a Black and White interior. We are not sure when the switch was made but based on the paint and condition we believe it was refinished about 10 years ago, ossibly more. The car is in fantastic condition and is as nice in person as it appears in our pictures.

Outward the body shows nice and straight all over. The paint color is deep and shows a quality refinish job. The outer finish is deep and shines nicely, ree of major surface scratches and paint blemishes. We do not detect any noteworthy bondo cracks or blisters and the body looks extremely true and straight. The trim, hrome, ezels and emblems are in amazing shape and show in top quality condition. The fender look great, ree of the notorious headlight vent rust. Normal light chips on edges are noted as you can see in our pictures. The panel gaps are all consistent and the doors, ood, runk, umpers all line up nicely. They close just as nicely as you would hope. The lights, umper rubbers, nd grilles show in top condition as well. The rockers show nice and solid throughout. We note only a few minor blemishes in the body. There is a low door scratch that was touched up on the passenger side. We noticed that the left rear bumper chrome appears off center (possibly from backing into something). This can be adjusted on the mount easily. We note very light blistering on the lower rear edge of the passenger fender (see pic). We also notice 1-2 patches on the floorboards that were done in fiberglass and can be replaced with metal if desired. The trunk is very solid throughout and we only note 2 minor rust spots in the rear corners (see pics). The rear body panel is solid which is most important.

Inward the car stand just as nice. The interior shows a nice original look. The seats material is in excellent condition as are the door and trim panels. The dash shows the perfect patina and the gauges and switches look fantastic in their original condition. The glass is perfect on the car and shows only some normal windshield nicks and a light wiper blade abrasion. The top is in excellent condition and the power mechanism and frame move smoothly and properly. Window gaps are nice and tight. The carpets look nice although a little worn on the edges. Seat belts are present and look era correct. All windows roll up and down smoothly, ree of excess play or slop. The orininal radio (not working) is present as is the clock.

Mechanically the car is unusually sound. It is very evident that the car was well looked after over the years. The original 283 ci 4bbl Power Pack engine fires up on one revolution and idles perfectly. No smoke is detected on start up or under acceleration. The valve train is quiet and the oil change is up to date. The Powerglide transmission shifts in and out of gear perfectly and smoothly. We do not detect any linkage slop consistent with older Chevys. The trans shifts nicely and is as smooth as can be. All heims, erks, nd moveable parts are properly greased and move freely. The control arm bushings are nice and the car doesn't have any noticeable road noise. It stops nice and straight and tracks straight under power. The steering feels nice and tight free of slop at the steering wheel.The rear end is nice and quiet at speed. The lights and signals all appear in good working order. This is such a fantastic driveable Tri-Five example.

The underside is equally as impressive. The dual exhaust is in good condition and we do not detect any maniofold leaks or holes. The underside of the engine and trans show normal drip marks, one more than you would expect. The frame itself is nice and straight. We only note some small tears where the car was proably loaded or strapped down from over the years. The floor pans show heavy undercoating which we believe to be as old as the car. We do note the couple of fiberglass patches (see pics) but nothing of significant concern. The spare tire are is solid and the adjacent fuel cell looks fantastic. All body mount positions look good. This car is consistent throughout, howing in great shape.

This car needs to be seen in person to be appreciated and we encourage you to do so.

We are here to answer any questions that you may have. We would love for you to come see the car in person but understand that many of our buyers are out of state or international.
