Sinister 1957 Chevy Bel Air – Flame It Like You Mean It

- in Cars

This Sinister 1957 Chevy 210 is just bad to the bone!  The flames on the outside of this Bel Air are just the start.
What you see here is the result of an extensive 5-year restoration that left no part untouched.

Obviously, the highlight of this car is the paint. As good as it looks in photos, the car looks even better in person. When painting a car, black is by far the hardest to make look perfect. This becomes even more difficult when the body of the car isn’t absolutely straight as an arrow. Black will show even the slightest of imperfections. When I say this car has a mirror like finish and is laser straight, there is no exaggeration. If this car was painted all one color, it would have an incredible paint job… But as you can see, it has one of the most amazing fire paint jobs you will ever see.

To give the car a sinister look the bumpers, trim pieces, and lights were all blacked out or darkened. The bumpers and trim were all powder coated, with most parts being new. While the grill was kept gold, the headlights and blinkers were both tinted as well as the windows.

Under the hood, the heart of this flaming monster is a 383 small block Chevy Stroker motor connected to a 700R4 transmission with a 2300 stall converter.

The car sits 2 inches lower in the front thanks to drop spindles and new shocks and springs all around. Stopping is handled with power disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear.
This is an incredible work of art that will draw more eyes then any six figure exotic or luxury car on the road.
