This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is a nut-&-bolt restored car and comes with a file of photographs that clearly show the level of restoration on all aspects of the car. This concours-caliber car is as nice underneath as it is on top, which has all the correct factory markings in place. The paint, trim and interior are show restored with no visible flaws or other blemishes. All the trim and brightwork is beautiful and everything works exactly as the factory built it. The gauges were restored, and the fabric and seat materials are restored to new. The 283ci V8 Twin Barrell Turbo Fire engine is displaying the two 4-barrel carburetors that offers a unique rumble when running and is backed by a 2-speed automatic transmission. The battery and wiring are done to factory show standards, and the engine bay detail is equal to that of the rest of the car. All of the glass is excellent, and the power top fit and finish is above reproach. This convertible has a lot of great options, including fender skirts, power twin-mast trunk-mounted radio antennas, tissue dispenser, power windows and power brakes. Additionally, it has a Continental kit, giving the car that extra look that only the 1950s could provide. It has the original owner's manual and the photo file with it. This Bel Air was owned by Glen Delong of Hamburg, Pennsylvania for nearly ten years after he had bought it from a long-term owner in Tennessee. Starting with a rust-free original example, Delong funded a nut-and bolt-restoration of the car, which was completed, and he finalized the sale after his inspection of the car. Once complete, he showed the car and won several awards with it including many best in class and best in show awards. He always kept the car in climate-controlled storage and never let the car see inclement weather. It presents as well today as it did when completed a few years ago. Over the last six weeks, the car has undergone a complete inspection, change of fluids, sorting and a full on-lift detailing. It is ready to be shown virtually anywhere and driven with confidence of a safe and enjoyable drive.
