This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is finished in orange and powered by a 454ci V8 paired with a three-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential. Equipment includes a 6-71 blower, tilt-forward front bodywork, a solid front axle, front disc brakes, slotted wheels, Kirkey racing seats, a padded roll bar, dual Holley carburetors, ceramic-coated headers, and a side-exit exhaust system. The car was purchased by the seller in 2016 as an unfinished project, and subsequent work included replacing the engine, transmission, differential, floors, and seats. This modified Bel Air is now offered with partial records and a clean California title in the seller’s name. The exterior is finished in orange with “Old Grand-dad” lettering and sponsorship decals. The front bumper and grille were removed, and equipment includes one-piece front bodywork, blue acrylic side and rear windows, rear window straps, a removable trunk lid, a side-exit exhaust system, and radiused rear fenders. Areas of rust and peeling paint are visible in the gallery below, and the seller notes that the parachute is not rated for track use. Five-slot wheels wear a mixed set of Goodyear and Mickey Thompson tires, and the car is equipped with a straight front axle, front disc brakes, a line lock, and traction bars. The cabin features black Kirkey seats, a padded roll bar, and brown carpets. The rear seat, door panels, and window regulators have been removed, the floors and carpets were replaced, and equipment includes sliding side windows, four-point seatbelts, a B&M ratchet shifter, a boost-timing controller, and a fire extinguisher. The three-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 46k miles, approximately 300 of which were added during current ownership. The seller notes that the speedometer is inoperative, and total mileage is unknown. The 454ci V8 was reportedly built by John Beck Racing Engines and sourced by the seller from a Gas Altered-class race car. It is equipped with a 6-71 blower, dual Holley 750-cfm carburetors, an MSD ignition system, a Holley fuel pump, a 20-gallon fuel tank, an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, ceramic-coated headers, and MagnaFlow mufflers. An oil change was performed in preparation for the sale. The seller notes that only one of the two trunk-mounted batteries is functional. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and a ten-bolt Positraction rear axle. The rear end was overhauled in 2016 by J&S Gear Company of Huntington Beach, California. Driveshaft hoops have been installed. The seller’s service records are included in the sale.
