Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a very sharp 1971 BSA Thunderbolt. Birmingham Small Arms (BSA) produced motorcycles from their meager beginnings in 1910 all the way until 1972. This particular Thunderbolt is one of the last. The Thunderbolt utilizes an air cooled 654cc parallel twin cylinder engine with a single carburetor. This set up is good for 46 horsepower and will propel the bike over 100 MPH. It has a 4 speed manual transmission with the British shifter/brake pedal placement (brake left, shifter right). It uses large drum brakes both front and rear and chain drive. The overall riding experience is a delight and the 650 twin makes a sweet sound. The particular Thunderbolt has been treated to a loving frame off restoration less than 100 miles ago. Everything has been refinished or replaced and the result is simply, beautiful. It has been kept mostly original save for an upgraded Mikuni carburetor, an upgraded ignition system, and an optional tank from a Triumph. The original tank has been beautifully refinished as well for those that prefer an original look. The bike starts easily with the upgraded ignition and is ready to ride. Stand out from the crowd at the next bike night with this beauty. Don't miss out on this unique Thunderbolt. You can see this 1971 BSA Thunderbolt in greater detail in our St. Louis showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 618-271-3000 or stl@gatewayclassiccars.com with inquiries.

Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 4,175 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars is excited to offer this incredible 1957 Chevrolet Corvette to our Dallas showroom located in DFW Airport, TX!

We are proud to present this stunning 1957 Corvette, a prime representation of the C1 generation. Cloaked in an amazing shade of Cascade Green it is a 250 HP original fuelie car. The Corvette had a full rotisserie restoration which puts this car over the top among other Corvettes. The single headlights, the last year for this option, shine brightly and the AM wonder bar radio continues to crank out great tunes just as it did back in 1957. Original factory gauges still work strongly including the center mounted tachometer. Powering this amazing car is a correct 250 horsepower 283 V8 engine with a Rochester Ramjet factory fuel injection system making this Corvette one of 1,040 fuelies produced! Coupled to the healthy engine is the correct four-speed manual transmission that shifts with ease. The interior is just as nice as the exterior with the original ivory shade. A manual beige top matches perfectly with the carpet and provides a striking combination of color and style with the beautiful body lines and paint. This car was well-taken care of for the majority of its life and is seeking a new home to start the next chapter.

Mileage: 1,122 ( undocumented )

For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a beautifully restored 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible. This resto-mod Tri-Five underwent a no expense spared full restoration. The cranberry metallic paint was applied with great care and patience as it looks as good as you’ll find. The beautiful paint is matched by all new polished molding and trim pieces. The underside is almost as impressive, the floor pans were all painted to match the body. The frame and suspension were sandblasted, primed, and painted with heavy duty cranberry metallic paint. You will also find new ball joints, tie-rod ends, bushings, gas tank, fuel lines, and brake lines under this beauty. Ultra-soft leather with ostrich upholstery covers the interior and trunk, while custom made floor mats, high end carpet, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and a polished tilt steering column add to the allure of it all. Surrounding the 350 CID V8 is enough chrome and polished metal to fill a high-end jewelry store, stainless hood hinges, polished valve covers, air cleaner, radiator support, chrome battery tray, and intake to name a few of the shiny goodies under the hood. Ceramic coated headers flow to the MagnaFlow mufflers and exhaust producing and awesome sound. A heavy-duty aluminum radiator has been employed to keep the 350 V8 engine at a nice operating temperature even on the hottest of days. The firewall has been shaved to provide a nice fit and finish in the engine bay. The odometer reads 1,122, which represents the mileage on the car since the restoration was complete.

1938 Chevrolet Coupe

1938 Chevrolet Coupe


Engine: 6.2 L LS3 V8
Transmission: 6-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 1,192 ( since rebuilt )

Freshly-minted and now for sale in our Houston showroom is this spectacular all-steel 1938 Chevrolet Coupe. Cloaked in a pristine Porsche Guards Red PPG finish, this is one for all ages. The restoration started with the steel body shell, and a Superior Glass Works Chassis, with fully boxed steel frame rails. Everything was taken to bare metal before any finish work was begun. A new LS3 crate motor was installed, with a FAST intake and FAST fuel rails. A set of coated shorty headers and a full stainless 2.5” exhaust setup, complete with stainless X-pipe, scavenges the spent fuel to the rear with a throaty burble. To the aft of the beefy powerplant, a new 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission with a 3200RPM stall torque converter to aid in providing excellent launches. The 6-speed auto provides excellent highway cruising capabilities, with surprisingly efficient operation. There are two dual finned-aluminum transmission coolers for the tranny to help it keep it at optimum temperature during spirited driving. Controlling the 6L80E’s shifts is a Corvette-style shifter, complete with electronic paddle-shift control capabilities on the gear knob. You’ll feel comfortable knowing that you can drive this thing like its sportscar powertrain wants you to, with handling and ride to match. The front end is a complete Heidts SupeRide II independent front suspension, with tubular upper and lower control arms, sway bar, QA1 adjustable coil-over shocks, 12” Wilwood disk brakes and calipers, and a power rack and pinion steering setup. Out back are QA1’s, a triangulated 4-bar link setup, torsion-style sway bar, an all-new quick-change Currie Ford 9” rear end and third member with 2.75:1 gears and a True-Track limited slip differential, and 11” Wilwood disk brakes and calipers complete with E-brake. The power-assisted braking setup is also equipped with a proportioning valve, allowing for fine-tuning the front/rear braking balance. A set of Nitto performance radials (215/50-17 front, 235/65-17 rear) wrapped around American Racing Salt Flat Special 5-hole wheels help keep this retro-rod stuck to the pavement. Inside this modernized classic, you’ll find that all the chrome trim shines like it’s brand new, and it is abundant. From the chrome window surrounds, windshield and rear window trim, to the door and window levers, everything glistens. There are a few hidden secret gems, too: the chrome window cranks don’t move – a light touch upward will raise the power windows, and a similar light touch will lower them. Equipped with what seems to be power everything, this car has plenty of creature comforts that one wouldn’t expect in a vintage auto. Power windows, power locks, a trick Painless “Phantom Key” Keyless Ignition with a proximity-sensing key fob (which provides a very cool pushbutton start and is part of the security system), custom Vintage Air system with billet nozzles, and power seats with 8-way adjustability and lumbar support cover most of the features, but not all. In addition, there is a Bluetooth compatible audio system that has near audiophile sound, USB ports on the console, cupholders, LED interior (and exterior) lighting, and tilt steering wheel all add up to providing a supremely comfortable, modern-feeling ride. The tinted glass all around help the Vintage Air system keep things cold in the summer, and toasty in those colder months (for when you can’t wait to drive this beauty until Spring). And, you’ll want to drive this car year-round, because when you’re in the cabin, the smell of the custom furniture-grade leather is intoxicating. This superb leather covers nearly everything including the headliner, and it provides such a pleasant aroma that it will make Bentley and Rolls owners jealous. If you do get caught in the rain, the 2-speed electric windshield wipers will keep your forward vision clear, and the powerful LED head- and tail-lights will keep the road lit (and keep you visible). For more information on this 1938 Chevrolet Coupe for sale, please call the Houston showroom at (832) 243-6220; or email us at "Houston@GatewayClassicCars.com". To see more of it, go to our website: www.GatewayClassicCars.com, where you'll see HD photos and an HD video of it in operation. Alternatively, if you want to see it in person, come to our Houston Showroom, located at 1910 Cypress Station Dr, Unit 200, Houston, TX 77090.
