283 C.I. 270 H.P. 3 speed manual
The 1957 Chevy Belair Convertible is an iconic classic American car and is probably the most recognized car on the planet. Today it is rare to find one of these desirable classics in good unrestored condition. This 57 was found in a garage in Southern California after nearly 35 years in storage. It was in great condition, but needed complete restoration. D&P spent approximately a year performing a rotisserie restoration back to original specifications. Power is supplied by a 283 C.I. engine with 270 H.P. and a three speed standard transmission. Options include a continental kit, dual rear antennas and much more. Since restoration this beautiful black 57 has been regularly driven down the Orange County coast and to numerous shows.
In January of 2012 Lee’s car was entered in the Stock class at the Grand National Roadster Show at Pomona, Ca. Even though the show is mostly for early hot rods there were many stock restored vehicles in many classes. D&P was extremely proud when the 57 not only won its class, but also received awards for the best stock engine and also won the award for the best restored vehicle of the show.
