Has there ever been a more iconic American car than the ’57 Chevy Bel Air? We think not. It has become a symbol of its age. It represents American middle class postwar prosperity. It has become a part of the 50's American culture. A movie star in it's own lifetime.
The car was just the right mix of style, performance and had an appealing price tag. It was a huge hit in showrooms, and was even a much bigger technical achievement than it usually gets credit for. The '57 Chevy, as it is often known, has become an auto icon. A benchmark of an amazing decade of Americana.
