The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

1957 was the second restyling of the trendsetting 1955 model bringing the styling to new heights. Chevrolet lowered the car and used smaller wheels plus several other body modifications. The nose and tail were updated with Cadillac-inspired cues, resulting in a baby Eldorado (of sorts) that has remained popular ever since its introduction.

The bored out, 283 cubic-inch V-8 engine was a popular option and was available in no fewer than six stages of tune. The top option featured a 10.5:1 compression and Rochester fuel-injection, as also seen in that year’s Corvettes, offering the magical ‘one horsepower per cubic inch.’
