Message  Predicta le Ven 17 Avr - 19:58

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Df12
The car has been in my family since 1965. I purchased the car from my uncle in November of 2002. He quit driving it around 1970 and it was parked outside until about 1990. The '57 was then moved to his barn, where it sat until 2002. First off, this car is not perfect by any means. I built it as a tribute to what I thought a small town guy, in 1969, would have built it. The trim and chrome are all decent used items. No new or reproduction parts on this one. I'll start with the bad part first.
57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Dfgdgd10

In September of 2014, one of the rods decided to let loose, so the car is not currently running. I brought the car back to my garage, jacked it up, saw the dent from the inside out, in the oil pan, lowered the jack, and covered the car. So, I know it needs a short block. Your good short block, and a weekend is all that is needed to get the car back on the road. I built the car to enjoy, have fun, and drive. It's been driven daily, it's been a weekend racer, it's been to many cruise ins, and it's been fun. Starting at the front, the control arms, coil springs, steering arms, spindles, inner fenders, splash pan, splash pan shields, battery tray, radiator support, hood hinges, hood latch box and rods, and heater box, are all powder coated.

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Fdg11
I installed an original Cal Custom Tube Grille and a Finned, Cast Aluminum, Cal Custom Hood Scoop. The rockets have been shaved from the hood. Radiator is a Desert Cooler 4 Core unit. Heads are 1966 Camel Hump, with 2:02 valves, screw in studs, guide plates, full roller rockers, and stud girdles. Intake is an original '60's M/T Crossram with twin Holley 600cfm mechanical secondary, dual line, double pumpers, with chokes removed. Topping the carbs off, are a pair of original Cal Custom injector style scoops. All linkage is mechanical. Fuel pump is a 110 GPH mechanical unit, with stock 3/8" line back to the 3/8" sending unit in the tank. Tank, sending unit, and lines were all replaced when I built the car. I run a stock style points distributor, with a hidden MSD 6A box.
57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Fdgd10

Valve covers are vintage M/T, with vintage breathers installed. They sit on top of a pair of cast aluminum valve cover spacers ( to clear the stud girdles). Flywheel is a stock style steel unit. Clutch and pressure plate are Zoom Kevlar pieces. Scattershield is a vintage 1960 Wedge Engineering 1 piece, NHRA Approved unit. Transmission is a Muncie 4-Speed. Shifter is a Hurst Super Shifter III with reverse lockout. Driveshaft is stock. Rearend is stock '57 housing and axles, with a 4:88 Posi. Vintage style Traction Master traction bars. Stock type manual drum brakes on all four corners. Front steering items, all bushings, shocks, etc., were replaced when the car was built and are still like new. The car drives great and is a blast. Rear bumper is a station wagon unit, All lights (headlight, taillight, brake lights, license plate lights, turn signals, glovebox light, interior light, and dash lights) are in working order. Car is an original radio delete car. Good working original Deluxe Heater. The 1960 Sun 10,000 grand tach needs rebuilt, and is mounted on top of the dash. Steering wheel was installed in 1965 and is a 1958 Impala piece.

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Fhgfh10
Shift plate, console box, and original red floor mats, are all from a '63 Impala Super Sport. Stock fuel gauge works, temp not hooked up, and speedo needs removed and lubed. Odometer works, but speedo quit. Front seats are 1969 Dodge Charger and were installed from a new, wrecked Charger in 1969. Rear seat is stock, with the Charger cover installed. Door panels have red and black snake skin vinyl, that my Uncle installed in the '60's. Headliner is the original, red one that Chevrolet installed in 1957. Carpet was installed in the '60's. Glass is all original, with red tint applied.
57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Gdfgd10

Passenger door glass has a crack towards the bottom corner. Both fenders are nice solid originals, as is the hood and trunk lid. Both doors are original and solid. The quarters are solid originals, as is the rockers. The floors are decent with a few small places, but you can still jump up and down on them. The trunk area is still painted the original Matador Red and is solid. The tail pan does need replaced, and because it is weak, the trunk won't latch. I've had it tied shut for years. (Just being honest). The original rubber mat is still in the trunk. Paint is black primer and the roof is gloss white. All lettering was hand painted by Josh Shaw, and was applied in 2003. car made it's debut 2 days later at the Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green. The pictures pretty much tell the story on this car. Like i said, It's not perfect. It was never meant to be. But it does get the attention. If you're on the internet much, then you've probably seen this car. Include in the sale of this car, are the following: 15"x7" steel wheels with mounted slicks, new Aluminum Flywheel, 3:36 open rear pumpkin (for highway driving), new drive shaft safety loop, NOS Scheifer 5:38 ring and pinion, and black, roll/pleated, stock front bench seat.

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Empty 1957 Chevy Bel-Air Nomad Gasser

Message  Predicta le Lun 10 Aoû - 20:04

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 6118

This 1957 nomad was painstakingly restored to its glory days as an early vintage gasser.

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 1196

This is a real one-of-a kind late excellent running 60’s early 70’s gasser/race car that wears all of its original decals from its racing days, no reproduction decals. I have done a complete frame-on restoration on this nomad. It retains 90% of its original paint. The hood and tailgate have been re-painted with the original color. The decals are original to the car from the 60’s -70’s except the two Cragar decals on each fender, in which I replaced with O.E.M. The interior is about 80% original with the headliner in very good condition. The nomad has its original padded dash and original spotlight from the factory. The heater, radio and clock were removed for racing purposes and the vehicle has heater, radio and clock delete plates installed. I added seat belts in the front and the rear for safety purposes.

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 2180

A lot of hard work went into preserving this nomad’s racing heritage and not disturb its originality. The body is now rust free, as I de-rusted the entire bottom and inner panels of this car. The floor was in good shape when I purchased it, but I replaced both driver and passenger and passenger rear floor with Danchuk reproductions. Welds were butt-welded not lap-welded for a factory look. The rest of the floor was in good to excellent condition and needed no repair, and the spare tire well is in excellent and rust-free condition. There is no rust under the body’s side moldings. The rust spots you see are all surface rust, and I purposely left those spots because I wanted to leave this gasser as unmolested as possible.

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 3165

The engine is a 355 summit racing engine (stamped on the front pad of the engine) with G.M center bolt heads. I used adapters on the heads so I could use the old school valve covers. It has a four speed M-20 Muncie transmission that is in excellent condition, and a Hurst blow proof bell-housing (still has original Hurst stickers on the bell-housing). It has the original rear-end with a 3:30 non posi, but the complete 5:13 posi-trac center section from its racing days will be included in the auction. This nomad runs great and shifts through all gears smoothly

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 4143

The following is a partial list of what has been done to this nomad:

New 670 Holley carburetor
New brake and fuel lines (including new brake hoses)
Radiator and fuel take cleaned
New fuel tank sending unit
New rear axle bearings
New front wheel bearings
New brakes and cylinders all around
Front end completely rebuilt
Upper and lower A frame bushings
New ball joints
New tie rods
New shocks
Pertronix point conversion and new coil
New fuel pump
New front tires
Has Hurst line-loc but not hooked up
Horn, gauges, lights, back-up lights, blinkers, interior lights, dash lights and spot-light all work

History:



This is the history that came with this car. We are very interested in any photos, video, articles, or memories that you may have.



“This 1957 Chevrolet Sedan was built to race as B/Gas and B/Gas Supercharged drag car in 1962 by a mechanic at Nickey Chevrolet in Chicago, Illinois.

“Shake, Rattle and Roll” raced at U.S.30 Drag strip and many other mid-western tracks along with the well known “Shake, Rattle and Run” '57, a car also associated with Nickey Chevrolet. The car was orange in those days”

“ In 1968 The car was purchased by Ed Sciacca through famed race car builder Ronnie Kaplan. Ed raced the car with dark red paint from 1968 through 1970. the car was then in storage for 35 years.”

"Ed sold the car, refinished in Hugger Orange to collector Ralph Thomas, BAT Competition Museum, of Highlands N.C. in 2005. The car sold again to gasser enthusiast Larry Small of Stuarts Draft, Virginia in 2008. Larry showed the car and made a few passes at nostalgia events before selling the car to our client, so he could pursue another historic race car.”

57' Chevy Gasser  - Page 2 Empty 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

Message  Predicta le Dim 5 Mar - 22:18

Tall, flashy, and exceptionally fast gassers are a cool unique era in custom classics that command attention simply because they tower over the other cars at the shows, literally. You don't see these often, especially done like this. But when you want to be recognized even in a crowd of standouts, then you need a nicely restored gasser made from an icon like this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air.

The paint has only about 900 miles on it since restoration... and that's the exact first impression this Chevy gives. The slick Inferno Red was applied over the exterior with a professional hand and enough clearcoat to grab attention from across the show field. But it's not just an investment in paint and body that has you attracted to this coupe, but also the way it nicely represents the gasser culture. After all, these were all about shedding weight and transferring force to the rear wheels. So it correctly has the front bumper removed, and in its place, chromed welded camshafts that are lighter and look soooo much cooler. With the high solid axle installed you get to show the world whole header package and bright exhaust cutouts. The profile keeps plenty of the original Bel Air flair with the iconic brightwork looking like it received attention during restoration, including the sweeping side trim. But now there's also no denying its performance heart with items like the air grabber protruding from the hood and even the custom graphics that announce this '57 is a "Fuelish Pleasure."

Inside is more of that premium feel with the gasser's edge. It starts with an exceptionally fresh interior finished in peal white. The bench seats carry a hint of tuck-n-roll that's repeated on all the side panels, and even the floor mats, for a very cool and uniform presentation. Plus, the red accents on the doors, carpeting, and dash match the exterior for an overall thoughtful build. Gassers are very custom machines, and this one lives up to that heritage quite nicely. You see it in period-correct upgrades like the Moon sweeping tach, B&M shifter, and stylized '58 Impala steering wheel. Plus, there are some nice modern upgrades like the SunPro auxiliary gauges, and an AM/FM/CD/AUX deck that connects to a premium subwoofer stereo system. But even with all this great audio inside the car, we know your favorite soundtrack starts under the hood.

Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay is built for both show, and go, during the restoration 900 miles ago. You'll love showcasing the shine on just about every component. Plus the etching on the air grabber, valve covers, oil cap, all match the painted engine bay... and it all matches the bold Red Firemist exterior. Beyond the style of this V8 is the substance of a small block 350 that's been bored out to 355. And, go-fast goodies have been added, including a large QFT four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock hi-rise intake, Mallory electronic ignition, Corvette-style double-hump heads, and performance headers. You've already seen how great that last feature looks through the wheel wells, but what you might not notice, is that the full dual exhaust exits out the rear. This gives the Cherry Bombs and straight pipes plenty of time to create a nice roar, or you can just open the cutout covers for the ultimate experience. But don't just enjoy the sound; see its journey in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see more restoration investments in everything from aesthetics like the color-matched oil pan, to helpful features...like the front disc brakes. The total package said to produce 425 hp, and making sure that all this power gets to the ground properly is the control of the Muncie four-speed manual transmission.
