The Ultimate Car Collection #52; 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air Convertible
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.
That year 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.
