What is it about 1957? This year is very significant in the age of the Automobile. Numerous models came out of American design studios that made huge impacts in the car world that have lasted to this day. Other impacts in the 1950s were new car cultures. Both drive-in restaurants and drive-in movie theaters made their debuts. It soon became fashionable to be seen in unique automobiles at these establishments. The "Tri-Five" Bel Air and Nomads from Chevy were the affordable, everyman cars to be seen in. This was also the beginning of what was to become a move to the future with more power and areo-space design ques. The culmination of the Tri-Five was the 1957 Bel Air. Up front it had the twin rocket hood ornaments and the rear had the chrome accented tail fins. The drive-train was also the origin of the Small Block V-8 and the Turbo Hydramatic automatic transmission. Unfortunately the iconic Tri-Five went away in 1958 with a complete restyle of the Bel Air. Back to 1957. Our Bel Air comes to us from a Wonderful Lady who said that she is over this number. She was born in 57. She had sold her house, number 1957 and it was time for her beloved 1957 Chevy to go. This was the quintessential drive on Sunday morning car. Purchased nearly 10 years ago at an online auction, she wanted a toy. The car was described as just out of restoration and being sold on behalf of an estate. It provided her and her family a way to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy life. We picked the car up on a beautiful Sunday afternoon from her fantastic single-car, air-conditioned garage. Immediately we noticed the extreme straightness of the car. Panel fit looked nearly perfect along with all the chrome in perfect condition. In the trunk were very carefully packed boxes of spare parts including the original Radiator and oil-bath Air filter assembly. On the drive home to the dealership, much to our pleasant surprise, was how well the car drove. Accelerating effortlessly, Shifting smoothly and Stopping straight put a big smile on our face. The smiles at the street lights from the public also gave us thoughts of living in a much simpler time. A time of driving to Big Boy restaurants and Drive-In movie theaters smiling the whole way with the top down, wind in our hair and shoulders reared back.
