History of the famous 1957 Bel Air Convertible: No other car better characterizes the 1950s era of Americana than the 1957 Chevrolet with its classic flowing lines of the famous rear fenders, the year 1957 was the first model year of the larger-displacement 283 cid engine which featured a larger bore than the previous 265 cid engine, the trim pieces that identified the top-of-the-line Bel Air from the lesser 150 and 210 models with gold-anodized finish on the front grille mesh-front fender chevrons, Chevrolet script hood, Chevrolet script trunk, side chrome spears with rear quarter-panel accent trim and rear fenders capped with chrome…the rare Bel Air convertible production was extremely low, accounting for just 3 percent of all 1957 full-size Chevrolet manufacturing output; its rarity has only added to its top desirability…the car is best remembered in the context of 1957, as Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand” would make its television debut on ABC and Elvis Presley would purchase his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee…the sight and sound of this pristine Bel Air convertible really has collectors all over the world still excited,  here is a very rare Atlanta production that is restored in the original and loved Matador Red,
