The most beautiful American machine all of times

Finally I was able to finish making an article about my favorite classic car, 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. Let's see the article below;

As we all knew, the Chevrolet Bel Air is a large size sedan produced by the General Motors Chevrolet division for the 1950-1975 model. However, it is the 1957 Chevy Bel Air model which has attracted the most interest of young Americans at that time.

It also considered as the most representative of the spirit of American youth in the mid 1950s, which has Elvis icons, Tom & Jerry, and a drive-in cinema.

Bel Air is an open hood version of the Chevy sedan (saloon), with a hood that can be opened and closed just by pressing the button on the dashboard. This is pinned in one of the Bel Air taglines which roughly reads: "...makes a comfortable protection in your hands, just by touching one button."

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air  is actually a face-lift version of the 1955 model, but theose model looks longer, lower and wider, because the circle of wheels is reduced in size from 15 to 14 inches (36 cm), and also has a different style on the rear wing.

In addition, the gearbox called "Powerglide" provides a three-speed manual transmission features, or two automatic acceleration mated with one option engine, Super Turbo Fire V8, even able to boost power up to 283 hp and allows it reach a top speed of 193 km per hour.

Even 1957 Bel Air model is crowned as one of the best-known US car products of all time, and many are well-maintained all-over the world. Ranging from the types of sports coupes and convertibles are the most sought after by collectors and fans, as well as hobbyists of custom cars (look this '55 Japs Bel Air).

And recorded, the value of this car is even higher, for example one of 1957 Bel Air once owned by the famous American rock star Bruce Springsteen, some time ago in 2016 was purchased by an automotive collector for US. $350 thousand or over Rp.4.7 billion.
Not to mention, from the beauty of legendary cars that are a source of inspiration for other world's automotive activists to create an automotive works that are no less beautiful.
