So here's the scoop. This old Bel-Air sat for years and years in a barn down in southern Florida. When we got her she was covered in 20+ year old dust and dirt. We drug her out of hiding. hauled her up to Chicago. and began cleaning this old girl up. When we started digging into it. we only then began to realize how much of an original example we had on our hands here. The exterior shows well. aside from the obvious surface rust here and there . The body panels are all straight. free from any damage. and the gaps line up perfectly throughout! We do note some green paint showing under the hood on the driver's side fender. leading us to believe that it had been replaced at one point in time. with a full repaint to follow. As we were decoding the car. we realized that the original color was a two-tone Dusk Pearl under an Imperial Ivory roof. The car's color today shows a Canyon Coral. which was an original color for 57 Bel-Airs. I think the color is absolutely right for this car. playing off of it's anodized gold badging and trim pieces. Upon first glance I'm sure most people will notice the rust bits here and there throughout. The good news is that 95% of the rust on this car is strictly light surface rust. There are a few points that we note the rust is through the metal and will need patched / replaced; the bottoms of both back doors. and the two corners along the bottom of the rear windshield. There is also very light pitting on some of the exterior chrome (windshield wipers. tail light bezels. wheel caps). The good news is the trouble areas on these old cars is in the headlight vents that run through the fender to the cab. and they are in great condition with no signs of rust or rot starting. This Bel-Air screams 1950's AmeriCARna through and through. With today's old car market somewhere between $100. 00 show pieces . and rat rods with rattle can paint jobs and parts off of 13 other cars. this one is your atypical “fork in the road”; leave it as she sits. perfectly draped in pink patina. or spend a little dough and restore this classic back to showroom quality. The choice is yours. but the good news is she's all there. no matter which way you decide to go with it! The best part is if you can get over some of her exterior flaws. you'll absolutely fall in love with the original condition of the rest of her!

The interior of this car is by far the star of the show. The original black and silver seats are in fantastic shape. showing just one small wear-through on the driver seat bottom. The carpets appear to be in great shape and in original form. There is some slight discoloration here and there throughout the carpet. as to be expected in a 60 year old barn find. The dash is clean and free of any cracks. The gauges all appear to work correctly. and show the perfect patina. with no rust or corrosion around any of the chrome rings. All of the original gold “ Bel-Air” badging is there. and in good order. The original steering wheel was replaced at one point in time. but we do have the larger original wheel in the trunk if someone wanted to replace it back to original. The original headliner is free from any tears. and is not sagging. However. we do note that it appears it took on some water at one time. and shows a good amount of staining up front over the visors. particularly around the driver door. There also appears to be some fade and wear behind the rear seats up in the rear cowl. Other than the few flaws. it's absolutely mind boggling that this car has such a clean and well preserved interior. Take a look at the pictures below. we can't make this stuff up!

Mechanically. we have a hard time believing that this car would have any more than the 48. 48 as stated by the odometer. The 265 “Turbo Fire” V8 starts up without hesitation and idles as smooth as new. with no rattles or rumbles to note. Peek under the hood and you'll find a well preserved jewel. hiding under big pink haunches. The 265 V8 produces an impressive 162 hp. and compare that to 1957 terms. and you had yourself a showroom hot rod. ready to rip! This car is an extremely original powerplant. with numbers matching from the carburetor to the 3 on-the-tree transmission and every checkpoint in between. She even still has the original “oil bath” air filter. which we will note is a bit cumbersome. and can be somewhat messy your first time putting it back onto the Rochester “2 Jet” carb (speaking from experience). Climb into the captains seat. turn the key. and slide this dream boat into drive. You're sure to get looks at every possible turn. I'm talking good looks. not the kind of looks you get when you're carrying your kid by their shoe laces out of the Walmart. The car runs and drives flawlessly. We do note some slight play in the neutral position on the column shifter. which is pretty common in any manual column shift car. The suspension treated us fairly on our test drive. as we didn't feel any clunks. and it never bottomed out on any of the speed bumps. We do note some light creaking coming from the rear suspension. as she hasn't moved in the better part of 20 years. Other than the age related moans and groans. this car is ready to cruise!

We were able to set this big sedan up on our lift. and were pleasantly surprised to find that the rust up top was pretty much quarantined to it's designated body panels. There appears to be no rot. rust. or damage anywhere on the underside of this southern sleeper. making it an A1 candidate for a frame off restoration. if that's what your plans are. Either way. if you decide to restore i t. or you decide to drive it. you've got a fantastic platform to start with. Call Evolve Motors today. and put her in your driveway tomorrow!
