1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Chassis & Floor Restoration at V8 Speed & Resto Shop
This 1957 Chevrolet had been in it's owner’s family for many many years. They contacted us about performing a partial restoration, with the goal of making the car solid and safe to drive but without an extensive total restoration. This meant that they did not want an exterior repaint if possible, as they plan to drive the car and enjoy it with family and not worry about scratching up a show-quality paint finish.    
 
When we picked up the car, it was literally stored in a barn.   Click "Read More" for the complete photo gallery!
