1957 CHEVROLET BELAIR - 572 BIG BLOCK - $79,999

1957 CHEVROLET BELAIR - 572 CUBIC INCH - 720 HP

 

Australian built RHD 4 door 1957 Chevrolet Belair with a 572 cubic inch Chevrolet big block. Engine is a  572 based on Merlin II block and MERLIN II heads with a Demon carburetor. 

720HP via a BGA built Turbo 400 to a 9" Ford rear with quality Mosler axles and a Detroit locker. Currently sitting on a MT 275 sized rear tyres on Centerline Convo Pros. 

This 57 presents beautifully in a stunning purple duco with subtle ghost flames and fresh bright work everywhere you look. That timeless rear flank to the archetypal 57 fin is a picture perfect postcard.  Interior is in black and dark grey cloth with a half cage and harnesses.

Not all 57 4 doors can truly carry themselves as a heavy hitter in street guise. They are a lot of car to get moving and to get sitting just right. This example has been fettled to be just spot on. Make no mistake, tromp on this car and the front wheels are leaving the blacktop to reach for air. This car requires a mature thinking owner who knows when and where to 'deploy'! 

To round up, this 57 is a great package for those who appreciate a big HP naturally aspirated big block in a classic old school style. It is a well sorted vehicle that not only attracts knowing appreciation sitting still but when the key turns it's a happy maker to all in its presence.

A lot of automobile at a great price for the discerning enthusiast!
