General Information

Bel Air 4dr ht
I purchased this 57 9/3/2012. The vehicle had the original 57 power pack V8 (overhauled) with a Edlebrock manifold and carb. The original powerglide was also overhauled. The PO repainted the car red then heavy gold metalflake clear which turned the color to almost a copper. The interior was redone a few years ago in original style but not the original type material.

Since purchasing the car I have:

Detailed under the hood
Overhauled the 283, installed a Edelbrock intake with oil tube
Replaced the valve covers with orginal
Installed a 700R4
Installed front disc brakes, dual master cylinder and power booster
Installed new exhaust with glass packs
Installed Crager style mags and new tires
Overhauled the Insturment Cluster
Refinished the dash and all trim
Replaced the bumpers with rechromed bumpers
Had the hood bar and extensions rechromed
Replaced the grill bar with a reproduction
Replaced the grill with a reproduction

I still have lots of minor stuff to do but it is looking better each month!
