Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

Old Cars spotlights a reader’s 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air that stands as a tribute to "Dad"
1957 Bel Air at night

Howard Smith pays tribute to his father ever time he gets behind the wheel of his Bel Air. This is what he had to add about his Chevy...

"The Chevy is Matador red/ India ivory and restored to original for my dad. It has a 283 power pack with Powerglide transmission. The Interior is also restored to original. I added Foose wheels and BFG's and began driving again this year after losing my dad to cancer 8 years ago. Building a 1956 Chevrolet sedan with my grandsons and sons is next on the list!"
