As one of the most iconic American cars of all time, the Chevy Bel Air has a huge following in the classic-car community. The ‘57 Chevy is as emblematic of the 1950s as Elvis Presley or Marilyn Monroe and as American as hot dogs or apple pie. The restrained yet obvious fins, classic two-tone paint, and the huge chromed front grill and bumper have all contributed to the Bel Air’s tremendous rise in value over the years. For 1957, the 265 V8 was punched out to 283 cubic inches and, when equipped with the Ramjet fuel-injection option, it pumped out one horsepower from every cubic inch. This was a feat that Chevy deemed as “magic” at the time and claimed to be the first to accomplish. Over the years, many Bel Air models have become hot rods or resto-mods. The 220hp four-barrel Bel Air featured in Forza Motorsport 6 just begs to be dressed up to fulfill your hot-rodding dreams. Drop in a huge V8, prop it up with some 20-inch rims, and a give it a flame job, and you’ve got a guaranteed head-turner from Long Beach to Prague.
The second-generation Bel Air coupe was outfitted with a 4.6L (4,639 cc) "Super Turbo Fire" V8 engine producing 220 hp (164 kW) and 300 ft·lb (407 N·m). The Bel Air coupe could be equipped with a two-speed Powerglide automatic gearbox.
The 1955-1957s were made in right-hand drive and shipped from Oshawa, Canada, for local assembly in Australia (CKD), New Zealand (SKD), and South Africa. All three model years had a reversed version of the '55 LHD dashboard and did not get the LHD models' 1957 redesign.
