RealRides of WNY - 1957 Bel Air

As it says on the trunklid, this 1957 Chevy Bel Air is “Somethin’ Else.” Seen last Thursday at one of Akron’s weekly cruise nights, this one’s been given the works: new grille, huge cruiser skirts, wide whites with a set of killer hubcaps, pinstriping, and a beautiful green and black interior to offset the gorgeous paintjob. We’ll have to guess what’s under the hood, but I’m thinking it’s probably not a Blue-Flame Six; then again… you never know! Chevy offered a dizzying number of model configurations for 1957, in the One-Fifty, Two-Ten, and Bel Air lines; but this was the only convertible model. Often times ’57 Chevys are a dime-a-dozen at cruise nights/car shows, but every once in a while you run across one that’s different. This looks like one of ‘em!
