1957 CHEVY BEL AIR TWO-DOOR CHARLES BAX­LEY BEECH IS­LAND, SC

Street Rodder - - Street Rod Of The Year! -

STREETRODDER’s 2018 Top 100 list in­cludes a whop­ping 20 Tri-Five Chevys, 10 of which were se­lected at the Danchuk Tri-Five Na­tion­als (of course). This patent-leather black ’57 Bel Air was one of our fa­vorites from Beech Bend Race­way, but was also se­lected by event judges as the Tri

Five of the Year. Charles Bax­ley kept the ex­te­rior mods ap­pro­pri­ately mild, sav­ing the cus­tom stuff for the rest of the car.

The car rides on an Art Mor­ri­son En­ter­prises front sus­pen­sion and a four-link and coilovers in the rear sus­pend­ing a Ford 9-inch. The 18- and 20-inch Knuckle five-spoke wheels are from Bil­let Spe­cialites’ Vin­tage se­ries. A mod­i­fied Chevy LS2 en­gine is backed by a 4L60E trans­mis­sion. The su­per­clean, mega-red in­te­rior in­cludes mod­ern bucket seats, and a con­tem­po­rary re­design of a clas­sic ’55 dash, filled with Dakota Dig­i­tal ana­log gauges and vents for the Vin­tage Air A/C sys­tem.
