Owner: 57Chevy
Make: Chevrolet Model: Belair Category: CUSTOM CRUISERS
Year: 1957 Colour: Custom Silver & White Awards: Summernats 25 Best Custom Classic Street

My Story: We brought the car from an American aircraft engineer, who had brought it from the second assistant producer to the movie Mississippi burning, the car was used as a sheriffs car in Mississippi Burning after the movie she brought the car from MGM. Luckly we got all the documentation bill of sale etc. The car won best Custom Classic in street at Summernats 25 which we were absolutly wrapped about. A lot of great friends have put a lot of time & effort into our car, she is one hell of a street car & we cannot thank them enough.

Paint and Bodywork: The car has been rebuilt, our freinds at Sefton Smash Repairs took care of the body & Paint which was quite a big job as she had a lot of hits over her time. The body work & paint is amazing a real credit to the guys. The paint is a custom silver mix & custom white mix with Blue pearl. The exterior Stainless trim was repaired & Polished by our good freinds at Moulding Repairs & Polishing Riverstone.

Interior/AudioVisual: The car has been completely rewired by a friend who spent many days & late nights laying & hiding the wiring etc. The audio system is simply an aftermarket retro cassette deck set of Kenwood 6x9 & centre speaker in the dash, I like to listen to the engine with light music in the background. The interior is custom two tone grey euro hide trim. a lot of work has been done in the boot it has two led screens in the side panels & a large led light up picture of Elvis & Marilyn in a hot rod which folds down to access storage space behind the rear seat. The trim was done by a mate John Taylor.
