1957 Chevrolet 2 Dr. Hardtop Custom Rod
I am proud to list this 57 Bel Air custom rod. It is a wonderful driving and well equipped ride. It was built with nice components and thought out and assembled very well. This 57 Bel Air has power steering, power brakes(disc front - drum rear) air conditioning, and an automatic transmission with overdrive. It was built for comfortable and dependable driving with long trips in mind. At 70 mph the tach reads 2,200 rpm and has great passing acceleration. The engine has less than 2,000 miles on it. The car was built about 5 years according to the previous owner who installed this almost new engine. The floors, inner rockers, body braces, and trunk pan are all solid and there is no under coat on the under carriage. The body is solid and nice, bright work is nice and the bumpers appear to have been replated recently. All of the lights, horn, instruments, wipers, stereo, and windows work. This Bel Air was born in built in Atlanta and was born a V-8 car, VC vin #.
This cool ride has an almost 350 cid Chevy engine with a Edlebrock 4bbl. carb, K&N air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, ceramic coated headers, billet valve covers, billet pulleys, chrome alternator, aluminum radiator with over flow tank, flex flan and electric fan, power steering, power brakes with disc on front, 200R4 transmission with overdrive and the stock drive shaft, new front shocks & rear air shocks, Vintage air conditioning and heater set up, electric wiper motor, 21/2" exhaust with flow master type mufflers, exhaust is all welded (no clamps), 17" American Racing Hopster polished aluminum wheels (matching spare wheel in the trunk) new Riken Raptor tires (245/45 ZR17 on front) (255/50 ZR17 on rear) LED tail lamps, and much more. To much $$ to count. Buy one already built and ready to go and not have to wait a year or two to build one. Spring is just around the corner.
The interior is very nice. It is styled like the original, it is vinyl with cloth inserts. It has 4 sets of seat belts for safety. The dash and gauges are all original and has a modern 3 gauge set mounted under the dash and a tachometer mounted on the steering column. It has a custom audio radio, am-fm, cassette and mp3 compatible deck in the dash that fits like the original with no modifying, It has 2- 6x9 clarion speakers mounted under the rear package tray. It has a nice custom steering wheel that fits the looks of the car well, medium tinted glass, 4 Chevrolet rubber floor mats, The air and heat work very well for driving year round.
The mileage showing is 94,621. I am representing it as exempt due to age of the car. The car is sold as-is and where is with no written warranty. The car is located in Wentzville, Mo., 35 miles west of St. Louis on I-70. Please come inspect it and take it for a spin, you will really enjoy the way she runs and drives.

Do not adjust your computer screen, you are not seeing the rebirth of the Pontiac brand. General Motors has chosen to use a G8 to disguise a test mule for the latest prototype of the forthcoming Chevrolet SS. The G8 was closely related to the Holden Commodore and Vauxhall VXR, the platform upon which the new Chevrolet performance model will be based. It should come as little surprise, then, that GM has opted to use the cladding from the former G8.
Thought the front clip of this mule is pure Pontiac, note the vents immediately behind the front wheel. That is a distinctive design hallmark of the Vauxhall VXR. Also note that this vehicle is right-hand drive, as the Holden and its Chevy counterpart will be very closely related. That likely includes potential drivetrains. The spy photos of this mule also reveal very wide rear tires, and rear wheels that do not match the fronts.
This restyled blue 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is wearing manufacturer plates, and it appears to be the same one seen around the internet in various pictures lately. This crash is likely not part of the Chevrolet testing regimen, however. Digital Corvettes forum member gpetry posted the shot with a note: "got this picture e-mailed from a friend in Arizona last week..." No circumstances are given, other than the incident occurred in the thick of a set of curvy roads, and the coupe ping-ponged off a guardrail and into the rock wall. Hopefully everyone involved in the incident walked away.

It may not be a pretty thing to see, a crashed sports car that's not even available for sale yet, but rest easy. Many pre-production cars are used for development and then unceremoniously crushed and scrapped, anyway. If that's the case here, that makes this wrecked 'Vette less of a tragedy and more of a case of exceptional efficiency.
Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.
From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.
As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.
