Known as an automotive icon, the 1957 Chevrolet is the poster car
for the 50's. With its use in various products from toys to movies
and television they set it up to become one of the most
recognizable vehicles in history. Even automotive amateurs can
point at these finned beauties and know it looks familiar even if
they can't ID it. They had various models and as the custom vehicle
world grew in popularity, station wagons became one of the coolest
starting points for restomods. What was once your boring family car
has now cemented itself into the show car world. This very clean,
rare, 9 passenger wagon is a beautifully frame off restored car
that has racked up only 2,057 miles since being completed. The car
has been extremely well cared for since it was finished so it still
has that fresh just out of the shop look. The current owner is a
collector of very clean cars and we are also very familiar with the
original builder who is a collector as well. It was originally sold
out of Vandergriff Chevrolet in Arlington, TX so it is very likely
it has lived its entire life in the North Texas area. The body and
floors are all very solid and straight with zero issues. It has a
beautiful gloss Black paint that has a very slick shine. All of the
chrome and stainless trim work is perfect as is the tinted glass.
This is an absolutely gorgeous car and you aren't going to find a
weak area anywhere. It has a great stance and rides on 17 inch Boyd
Powering this classic is a 283 V8 that has been very cleanly
finished out with a billet air cleaner and valve covers. It has a
plenty of power and delivers a great sound through the all new H
pipe dual exhaust. It was originally a 3 speed and factory AC car.
It has a more modern AC/Heat system now and the transmission has
been changed out for a 4 speed that shifts smoothly. Other nice
luxuries include the power steering system and power brakes with
CPP booster and discs in front. The suspension system and bushings
are all brand new and it has a sway bar added in front. All this
combined makes the car a very comfortable one to cruise around
The interior is all brand new and is done in a Red and Black
combination. Prior to being started it was fully Dynamatted
throughout. The upholstery work is all very clean and considering
it has space for 9 passengers and storage there is certainly a lot
of it. It has all bench seats with a split bench in the center to
give access into the rear. From the headliner up above to the
carpet down below everything has a very fresh look. The dash
features Red and Silver paint and has a nice pairing of stock along
with aftermarket components. It has nice white face Classic
Instrument gauges and the central gauge pod is an all in one set
up. In front of the driver is a Silver painted tilt column topped
off with a reduced size custom steering wheel. Other very nice
features include the underdash AC unit which blows cold, Hurst
floor mounted shifter and AM/FM/Cassette player that sounds
Looking the car over closely it becomes very apparent this was a
high end build that has been loved and cherished since being
finished. It looks great, drives great and shows very well.
It would make an excellent addition to any collection for
1957 Chevrolet 210
