1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Two Door Hardtop
1957 was the last year of the "Tri-Five" Chevies which were introduced in 1955.
The 57 Chevy was available in three models, the 150, the 210, and the Bel Air. They came in four-door and two-door sedans (a B-pillar at the rear of the front door), two door coupes (no B-pillar), two-door convertibles, or as four-door or two-door station wagons. The two-door Bel Air station wagon was known as the Nomad.
The 235 cu in inline 6-cylinder engine with 140 horsepower was again standard. The Chevy small block V-8 was available with 265 cu in and 162 hp, or as an enlarged 283 cu in engine with 185 hp or 220 hp. The fuel-injected 283 with 283 hp was available for the first time.
1957 Chevrolet Key Differences
Key differences of the 1957 Chevrolet include large rear tail fins, lower tail lights surrounded by chrome, a full-width front grill with a horizontal bar and round, rubber-tipped bumper guards, and unique rear fender side trim.
1955 - 1957 Chevrolets are basically the same car with minor body and trim variations from one year to the next. Each model is different enough to be easily recognized.
