The boss drives a Bel Air


   AT THE VERY back of this body and mechanical shop was the proprietor's own car, a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan undergoing its own slow restoration. No telling how many times it had been rebuilt before, but it looked clean and straight.

The '57 Chevy was available new in several single colours and two-tone  combinations, but white-over-orange wasn't one of them. 

Doors have had some patching, but dash and floor look sound. Steering wheel and column are newer than the rest of the car —  though maybe not by much.

No diesel under this hood. Inside the Chevy's neat engine compartment is a 235-cubic-inch six-cylinder gasoline engine. 'Original,' said the owner.
