1957 CHEVY BEL AIR RESTO MOD
Custom build by Boyd Coddington just before he started his TV Show. ZZ430, 700R, Multi State Show Winner
Meet Hercules, one of the best 1957 Bel Air cars I've ever seen and was proud to own. I bought this car from my friend in Delbarton, WV Junior Hannah and worked to document the story. Before Boyd Coddington got his reality tv show, American Hot Rod, he was building and customizing cars for years. Chip Foose even worked for Boyd before a bitter falling out. Much of the custom machining, rims and the special order ZZ430 motor showed Boyd's craftsmanship and eye for style. The Corvette Electron Blue paint was perfect for this unique build for a customer. When I bought the car, it needed freshened up. We added the Wilwood Red Caliper breaks and redid some of the aging interior. At Good Guys 2021, a retired farmer who had just lost his wife of over 50 years approached me and asked if I would consider selling him his dream car. It was hard to let go, however when I delivered the car to his family farm and met the 25 family members, and all the grandkids, I knew this would be the right owner. Today the car resides in Ashville, OH.
