The restorer of this very rare 1957 Chevrolet 150 Sedan Delivery
created a one-off masterpiece. We understand that GM manufactured
less than 3,000 of this model in 1957, and few if any are in this
condition today. This outstanding frame-off restoration was
completed in 2012 and the result is a work-of-art. From any angle,
the lines of the classic 150 Sedan Delivery are stunning. The
Tropical Turquoise 2-stage finish is exemplary and the chrome
flawless. Extra exterior paint is included with the car. Inside,
the cloth/vinyl interior is striking. Both of the reupholstered
bucket seats (the passenger seat was a factory option) look
original and the '150' steering wheel is right at home in front of
the factory dash package. Note - this '57 is 'radio/clock/lighter
delete'. All tinted glass is new and other features include a
heater, electric wipers and a 'Holiday' drink cooler from the era
that is color-coded. There is also an original 1957 'Gousha'
American Highway Road map and custom 'glove fit' car cover. Many
components (100's) such as hinges that were originally cadmium
coated are now chrome plated. Under the hood is an early version of
the famous '409' - the 348ci W-code engine. The "Turbo-Thrust" 348
is a strong motor with much more torque than the early
small-blocks. Equipped with the 3x2 Rochester intake, advertised
power was 350bhp and 364 lb/ft of torque. It is totally rebuilt and
backed by a 700R 4-speed automatic. Exhaust is routed through a
custom stainless system. As we said before, this '57 looks good
from any angle, even from below. The chassis has been nicely
detailed and remains virtually spotless. It incorporates a Classic
Performance Products 500 Series power steering package, manual
disc/drum brakes, coil-over front suspension w/sway bars and rear
air shocks. The Sedan Delivery sits on a set of 18" Coys chrome
spoke wheels that mount Bridgestone Potenza radials. The
differential holds 3.73:1 gearing. This is an extraordinary rare
'57 Chevy Sedan Delivery. Any one of us would be proud to be the
next owner of this rare machine. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
