We sold this car a couple years ago to our truck driver. He thoroughly enjoyed it, taking it to many cruise nights and car shows. Won many awards. It was trouble free. It also was a great conversation piece, people were really intrigued by it. He only traded it in because it was time for a change. It is someone else's turn to enjoy this rare 57!

Rare utility sedan muscle car with dual quads! Rust free.
