The 1957 Chevrolet is an icon all on its own. But while others out
there go for the outrageous, this 210 sedan is about showcasing a
high degree of originality with only the right updates to make this
a nice V8 cruiser. So if you love your icons to have plenty of
survivor-like qualities, dig into the details on this one.
We're told this car spent some time hidden away, and that's the
kind of cool barn find story you don't get too often on an icon
like the '57 Chevy. And we particularly like the clean and complete
look of the whole car while it still celebrates an earned level of
patina. So you have all your favorite design elements, like the
hallmark bumper/grille combo and the sweeping side trim that's so
distinct in 1957. You may see all the details and the value price
and see this as a great place to start your restoration project.
But we already like it just the way it is. The trim tag tells this
was born a two-tone, but the aged finish looks like it is wearing
the factory, India Ivory. Plus, stock badging, stock hub caps, and
rather straight body panels are all part of a look that feels like
you inherited an old barn, and this was waiting in a corner for you
to discover it.
The interior continues the look of the creamy white, and now it's
joined by textured gray inserts on the seats and doors. There are
rips and age in the presentation that keep the barn find vibe
going. But what's especially nice is the completeness of the
details, where you have the full dash trim, classic AM radio (for
display), correct gauges, and all the door handles and cranks for
this sedan. Even the dome light is still working. The classic Chevy
seeing wheel is even updated to Bel Air. So this has the right
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were
the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So you'll be happy
to lift the hood to reveal an ear-correct and possibly original 283
cubic-inch engine. And with the bright block, the cursive script on
the valve covers, and the huge factory oil bath air cleaner on top,
everyone will have no trouble believing its originality. But as you
look a bit closer, you also see what makes this a true cruiser,
like the upgrade to the alternator. The motor fires up easily, runs
well, and shifts comfortably with the Powerglide automatic
transmission. You'll also notice the new power brake booster and
recent front disc upgrade.
This iconic classic gives you an authentic style from day one and
the potential/budget for creating a truly unique custom in the
future. Call now!
