A VINTAGE FACTORY MUSCLE CAR...This Dream Car originated as a straight rust-free Colorado car. It is a legitimate rotisserie FRAME-OFF RESTORATION that was completely disassembled and impeccably restored by famed 57 CHEVY EXPERT, CARL MITCHAM OF TEXAS. Mitcham primarily specialized in concourse restorations and this is one of his finest!

This Chevy soon became part of the collection of WELL KNOWN MUSCLE CAR COLLECTOR, CARL DWIGGINS OF NORTH CAROLINA...Dwiggins had a stable of some of the most prestigious original and restored cars on earth! When he decided to liquidate some of his collection, I was very fortunate to procure the best car Dwiggins ever owned...THIS 1957 CHEVY 270HP DUAL QUAD CONVERTIBLE.

THE CAR WAS FEATURED IN "SUPER CHEVY" MAGAZINE AND APPEARED ON THE FRONT COVER!!!...CHECK OUT THE SCANS OF THE PHOTOS AND TEXT FROM ?SUPER CHEVY? MAGAZINE AS WELL AS THE OTHER PHOTOS.

SINCE IT'S RESTORATION THE CAR HAS GONE A TOTAL OF ONLY 885 MILES AND LOOKS AS PERFECT TODAY AS IT DID THE DAY IT WAS RESTORED!...Except for some surface blemishes on part of the exhaust system, the car appears as if it just came off the showroom floor..It has been cared for like a baby and has always been stored in a climate-controlled garage under a car cover.

The convertible roof fits on the car perfectly, no wrinkles, pulls or bulges...Everything on the car works as it should...Including all external lights, dashboard lights, blinkers, wipers, radio, heater, power top, gauges, speedometer, etc., and of course the clock, which is currently disconnected to avoid drain on the battery.

This vehicle has a GENUINE CORRECT 1957 283-270 Horsepower Motor w/ Solid Lifters...IT HAS THE PROPER IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS STAMPED INTO THE BLOCK IN 1957 BY CHEVROLET, WHICH ARE F628EB...Of course, it has an original metal "Bat-Wing" Air Cleaner, as well as properly date-coded/correct number Carbs, Dual-Point Distributor, Aluminum Intake, Heads w/ correct numbers/casting marks and so on...It also comes with the correct original T-3 Headlights, Water Pump, Gas Pump, Pulleys, Oil Pan, Linkage, etc. Naturally, this car has a properly date-coded radiator, transmission, 3:55 ratio rear, and all NOS original shocks! (you know, the shocks with the swirls)

The car was restored using ALL ORIGINAL AND NOS PARTS. The only exception being the current battery, as well as the side mirrors which were added later. There were no other reproduction parts used at all!

Additional options include EZ I glass, chrome rocker mouldings, wonderbar radio, deluxe heater, spinner hubcaps, etc. Standard steering and brakes compliment the package.
