The car was a frame off restoration, but we aren't sure just how long ago. The current owner did treat the car to a front end alignment and all new upper and lower control arm bushings in the front just last month. This is a very nice 57. There was just enough done to the engine with the new heads and performance intake, to give this Chevy just the right amount of HP. The interior was done to look original and is very nice. The doors are solid. The original dash was updated with new gauges.
We were told that the odometer shows the mileage since the restoration. The trunk is clean with no sign of rust. The battery was move here to give the engine compartment a nice clean look. The engine compartment is also nicely detailed. You can see how good the undercarriage is. The floor pans are like new, the frame is clean and solid. The car shows some evidence of the fact that it has been driven since the restoration, but it's still looking good.
The exhaust dumps operate properly from a switch in the car. All of the bright work is very nice on this car. We found just a few minor flaws in the paint, but not any chips or scratches. More like a few tiny imperfections. This is a great car for many reasons. You can be proud to take it to any car show, and it is also a fun car to just drive and enjoy.
