1957 Rusty Chevrolet Bel Air is yearning for a new home to rely on

The 1957 Chevrolet is one of the most iconic classic cars in American history. Amazingly, these cars are still popping up for sale and ready to be put back on the road again, including this Bel Air. The car is located in McGrady, North Carolina and can be found here on eBay with a current bid of $3,050. At first glance, the car looks like a pretty big project, however, it appears there is a lot of trim and some small parts included with the sale.

The interior will certainly need a lot of attention. It appears the dash is original and complete, which is a good sign. Obviously, 60 years has taken its toll on the upholstery and door panels. The good part about restoring a project as popular as a ’57 Chevy is there are plenty of aftermarket and new-old-stock (NOS) parts available.

As mentioned above, there are trim pieces included in the sale. You can see the Bel Air trim as well as some mechanical components. The engine is said to be a 283 cubic inch V8 that appears to be original. The ad states something about a head being removed for a gasket replacement, but it’s a little hard to tell what the complete story is.

The seller is honest about quite a bit of rust repair that needs to be done. The floor pans, trunk floor, and various body panels will need to be addressed if the new owner is doing a full restoration. For where the current bidding is, this car seems like a bargain. What do you think?
