About this vehicle
The 1957 Chevrolet has become an American icon. It was based on the popular all new 1955 Chevrolet. 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevy’s are referred to as the “Tri-Five” series. When introduced these cars brought high style and powerful high compression V-8 power to the low-priced field. Today these cars are highly prized by collectors. This top-of-the-line Bel Air Sports Coupe has it all except power steering and brakes. This hardtop body style was introduced in 1949 and offered a quieter and safer passenger compartment than a convertible.
