Unveiling of 1957 Chevy BelAir

Unveiling of 1957 Chevy BelAir Madonna Renewal Center – Freeport, Il – It’s here!  For several weeks we have been waiting for a special car to arrive so we can present it to everyone.  That day has arrived! First let’s get a little background to let you know why all of us involved with the Madonna Renewal Center (MRC) are so excited about this car.  After all, a car is just a car-right?  Wrong!  This car is a vintage automobile donated to the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary so they can raffle it off.  This will mean a wonderful contribution to the restoration of the Madonna Renewal Center.  The donor wishes to remain anonymous so we respect his/her wishes and can only say “Thank you and God bless you” whoever you may be. Now on to the description of this oh, so special, automobile.  It is a completely original 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 4 door with approximately 79,000 miles, a V-8 with a 283 cubic inch engine and a 2 barrel carb. To the best of our knowledge, it is one of only three such autos nationwide.
