Lot #437 - This 1957 Chevrolet Resto-Mod has an extremely long list of features and upgrades. Prior to the modifications, the vehicle was rotisserie restored to like-new condition. Since the restoration, the engine has been upgraded to a 502ci mill producing over 600hp (dyno sheets included). All the power is then channeled through a Richmond 5-speed manual transmission. Helping to put the power to the ground is a rear chassis conversion that features coilover shocks and a 9" rear end with posi-traction. Keeping the vehicle's potential speed in check are Wilwood disc brakes at all four corners. In addition to the power brakes, it features power steering and power windows. This machine is about more than just raw performance though, as the interior is just as custom and well-crafted as the drivetrain. Soft leather wraps nearly every interior surface, which is just one more detail that speaks volumes about the quality of this build. Both front seats are powered units and the driver seat has a memory feature. A Vintage Air system ensures comfort on even the hottest days or coldest nights. This is a tastefully modified classic.
