Happy Birthday America!
During the birth month of our great nation, nothing speaks “America” like a classic Chevrolet rolling down the open road. A very special group of classic Chevy’s, known as Tri-Five, concentrates on 1955-1957 model years. Included in this collection is the famous and highly sought after 1957 Bel Air. Of the seven body styles included in the Tri-Five, the Bel Air is one of the most valuable classics. Owners often spend upwards of $50,000 to restore one of these great American beauties.
One of the biggest trials of owning a classic hot rod is the upkeep. Locating a reliable parts source for your project car is always a challenge. However, we live in the era of the internet, where just about anything can be found online. Locating the right parts for a reasonable price often requires a bit of research, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes a breeze. One online supplier becoming a popular source for even difficult to find parts is Eckler’s. Their Classic Chevy website offers only Officially Licensed GM Restoration Parts. You can find similar online resources for just about every auto make and model.
So what are you waiting for? Now is the time to make sure your classic ride is road ready. After all, summer provides perfect weather to take your prize ride out for a spin!
