1957 Chevrolet Bel Air (Power Tour Car)
Started: April 10th 2015
Finished: June 5th 2015
It started out as a dying carcass, trees and weeds growing throughout, and it ended up in a September Issue of Hot Rod Magazine.
This '57 Bel Air went from rags to riches in 56 days. In the end, the '57 was making 514 rwhp on the dyno.
Bad Company Inc oversaw the entire build. From paint and body work to suspension and power train.
