The Chevrolet Bel Air was a full-size automobile that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1950–1981 model years. In 1957 engine displacement grew to 283 cu in (4,640 cc) with the “Super Turbo Fire V8” option producing 283 hp (211 kW) with the help of continuous (closed loop) mechanical fuel injection. These so-called “fuelie” cars are quite rare, since most Bel Airs were fitted with carburetion. The 1957 Bel Air is among the most recognizable American cars of all time; well-maintained examples, especially Sport Coupes and Convertibles are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. They are roomy, with tastefully restrained, period use tail fins and chrome. A second automatic transmission, Turboglide, was optional. While the original two-speed Powerglide continued unchanged, Turboglide provided a continuously variable gear ratio which made “shifting” imperceptible. The shift quadrant on Turboglide cars followed a “P R N D Gr” pattern.
Looking at this vehicle sure takes you back to your childhood and makes you long for a time when things were much simpler and cars had much more class than today’s wannabes. A good investment for your collection or even if you just want one vehicle to put on your desk.
