Chevrolet Made 1957 A Memorable Year, Ford’s Fairlane Beat It

Chevrolet Made 1957 A Memorable Year, Ford’s Fairlane Beat It This 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner has undergone an exceptional restoration featuring the 312 cubic inch motor The year of our Lord 1957 will spring one particular car to mind. The number '57' and Chevy are two words that go together like Bonnie and Clyde, or Jessie and James. It’s a lesser known fact that Ford also had a trick up its sleeve in the same year. Car design was flaring up and wings were all the rage. Ford came up with a new range of vehicles, and like Chevy, they didn’t have model names – only trim levels.

This is a find of a lifetime.

Few American cars are as iconic as the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. It pretty much is the spokes car of Route 66 and appears in pretty much any nostalgic car picture. Unfortunately, pretty much all have been modified, which means awesome speed but also means few that are in their original condition. That makes this classic ride being offered by Wheeler Auctions an especially attractive collector car, because it is bone stock and beautiful.

Arizona Barn Find 1957 Cadillac Coupe DeVille Is A Cool Project Car While it might have lots of character now, you can do all sorts of things with this Caddie. Classic cars are a wonderful thing to own, but buying one that’s already been fully restored means you miss out on the fun. Taking something which once was glorious but now is in rough condition, then working hard to bring it back to a former state of glory gives you a sense of accomplishment. Since this 1957 Cadillac Coupe DeVille has been untouched after being left behind a gas station in Phoenix in 1973, the car needs some loving care. That means a tremendous project car for you.

With no significant body damage and good bones, this car has the potential to be drop-dead gorgeous. The black paint job and original brightwork have lost some of their luster, but with some knowledgeable and concerted effort, likely meaning a new paint job, this car can be transformed into an enviable ride which will cause people to clamor upon its appearance.

While the interior is all-original, it also needs some work. All the factory gauges, steering wheel, radio, and dash are in good appearance, but the upholstery is worn through in multiple spots. The headliner is stained but is still attached.

There are some cars that are destined to be special as soon as they come out, and collectors usually know it, and the 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Limited Edition Indy Pace Car is one of those cars. To commemorate the silver and black Corvette that paced the field at the 1978 Indianapolis 500, Chevrolet sold a limited number of pace car replicas. And this particular example was snatched up and tucked away. © Motorious.

Motivating this classic Chevy is a 283 Power Pack with a 4-barrel carburetor and the Power Glide automatic transmission. Since this was a luxurious ride for its day, factory air conditioning is also included. Plenty of work has gone into this car. The engine, transmission, and front suspension have been rebuilt recently, while the radiator and cat-back exhaust are new. The front now features Wilwood disc brakes

This particular 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air has been so well-preserved in part because it sat unused from 1992 until the third and current owner purchased it in 2011. Since then, a mere 500 miles have been added to the odometer. This classic needs someone to lovingly care for it, restoring every last detail to make this a museum-quality ride.
