The undercarriage is gorgeous and loaded with new parts, painted in correct oxide red and is spotless. The list of new chrome parts includes, but is not limited to: chrome bumpers front and back, dagmar bullets and rubber inserts, grill, head light bezels, side and rocker trim, hood bullets, trim around side windows and windshield and emblems all around.  Newer side glass and windshield as well as a rebuilt soft top frame and newer black soft top. The interior has iconic charm with new matching two tone yellow with silver patterned seating surfaces. The interior also has newer carpet, door panels, door hardware, a refurbished classic steering wheel and horn ring.  Other features are a Wonderbar radio, beautifully painted dash, dash bezels, rebuilt gauges and a speedometer showing only the 200 miles since completion. Under the hood is a show quality engine compartment embellishing a freshly built 283 power pack engine with notched heads, topped off with 4 barrel carburetor and correct black snorkel air cleaner. This 1957 Bel Air is kicked into gear with a rebuilt automatic transmission and rare power brakes that were also rebuilt at the time of the restoration. This classic American Dream Machine is rolling in style on correct steel wheels, new Bel Air wheel covers and new wide white tires.
