Custom 1957 Chevrolet’s For Sale

The 789 Chevy, a blending of the 1957 Chevrolet, 1958 Chevrolet and 1959 Chevrolet classic designs, has been so popular on 57ClassicChevy.com that we thought visitors may enjoy seeing a contemporary 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air built by Boyd Coddington in 1995. Boyd built this car exactly like General Motor’s, Chevy stylist and Chevy engineers would produce it today. Reminiscent of the original 1957 Chevy it would be “Sweet, Smooth and Sassy! The 1957 Chevrolet CheZoom began as a drawing by freelance automotive stylist Thom Taylor.

This awesome car was built for Joe Hrudka, owner and CEO of Mr Gasket. Joe was shown, by Boyd, Thom Taylor’s rendition of what a modern made 1957 Chevy would look like. Joe’s response was- I’ll Take One! His car was one of Boyd’s most famous creations and was further enhanced with substantial upgrade and minor modifications in 2004.
