Throughout its long history, GM’s Chevrolet Division is responsible for producing many of the most popular automobiles that continue to form the backbone of today’s classic-car culture. Of all, though, Chevy’s wildly successful and handsome 1955 – 1957 “Shoebox” models rank the top of the list. While some Chevy fans prefer the subtle 1955 and 1956 Chevrolets, others favor the more flamboyant 1957 models. From the beginning, customizers, drag racers, and hot rodders have gravitated to the ’57 Chevy in all its forms. Easy to maintain, modify, and repair, the ’57 Chevy could likely be best described as the modern equivalent of Ford’s prewar “Deuce.” A mainstay of the hotly contested Junior Stock and “Gasser” classes of the 1950s through the 1970s and beyond, ’57 Chevys also continue to provide the perfect basis for a hot street machine ranging from full customs and early ‘70s-style “street freaks” to low riders, “resto-mods,” wild Pro Street cars, and nearly everything in between. Blending the basic cues of the iconic original design with today’s high-performance technologies, build quality, and welcome creature comforts, this Pro Street 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is a great example.
Purchased in 2011 by Bobby Monical, this bruiser displays a level of detail and finish sorely lacking in most other high-performance builds, with its deep black paint finish, very nice brightwork, and well-trimmed and appointed interior. Riding on a tubular Pro Street chassis, this wicked Bel Air rides on a coil over front suspension, with a high-performance setup locating the rear axle. Stopping is handled by Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes driven by a dual-circuit master cylinder. Lurking underneath the competition-style tilting front end is the 427 Chevrolet Big-Block V-8 engine topped with a polished GMC-type blower and 1970s-style Hilborn fuel injectors driving a floor-shifted automatic transmission. Polished M/T finned valve covers, tubular “block hugger” exhaust headers, and a bold Hilborn intake scoop round out the engine, which is cooled by a high-performance radiator. Featuring modern leather-clad bucket seats, the interior is equipped with a custom dash insert and instruments monitoring vital functions, a Boyd’s billet steering wheel, and billet pedals. Built-in stereo speakers occupy the former rear-seat area. Riding on a set of Boyd’s alloy wheels mounting performance tires, this former ISCA show car is ready to be shown and enjoyed, with all the hard work already done.
