To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 16 - 17 January 2020. Estimate:$80,000 - $100,000 Presented in its original color of Surf GreenEquipped with 283 cu. in. V-8; upgraded with dual four-barrel carbsPhoto-documented restorationThe quintessential 50s American convertible Getting on for 70 years, the Chevrolet Bel Air remains one of the most remarkable executions of pure automotive design. This level of style arguably reaches its peak with the second generation from 19551957. In 1957 over 47,500 buyers put their names down for a Bel Air convertible with a price tag of more than $2,600. That year the Bel Air was 1.5 inches lower than previous models due to smaller 14-inch wheels, though the wheelbase remained the same at 115 inches. While cleverly using essentially the same car underneath as 55 and 56 models, styling was ever more radical. Bel Air models received a trendy gold anodized grille and Bel Air body side script. Hoods were decorated with wind split ornaments in place of a traditional single ornament and Dagmar bumper guards.This beautiful example, finished in its original colors of Surf Green over a two-tone interior, is a true testament to the model. In recent years this Bel Air was the recipient of a full restoration, returning the car back to its original factory condition. It is powered by a 245 hp, 283 cu. in. V-8 upgraded with dual four-barrel carburetors and featuring the correct and desirable Batwing air cleaner. The car sports a chrome drivers mirror and full-size spinner wheel covers over painted steel wheels, while the interior features a restored original AM radio, clock, and deluxe heater. Included is also a copy of the owners manual as well as photos of the restoration.Without question, the Bel Air is one of the most recognizable cars of all time and a showcase of American ingenuity, design, and excellence. Having been under the dedicated care of its current owner, this 57 Bel Air is ready to enter the custodianship of a new collector.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az20.
