Stk 2346 1957 Chevrolet 150 Project Car

The Chevrolet 150 was the base sedan in 1957, less flamboyant than the Bel-Air, but with the same time-honored bodylines. This 150 model can best be described as a Project Car with mechanical upgrades. Components of the drive train and suspension have been addressed as needed. The 2-door post body and floor-pans need some attention, but the interior is very interesting. The Cobblestone front seat upholstery has been replaced with an arrangement of vintage blankets, but the rest of the interior (except the headliner) is in better than fair original condition. Door panels and the rear seat upholstery are nice. It appears that most window cranks, knobs, buttons and other essential pieces are there. The vintage instrument pod houses factory gauges that need some work. Comfort features include a heater/defroster (unfortunately this Chevy was a radio delete model). Under the hood, this Bowtie is all business. Originally a six-cylinder model (10 character VIN w/o first 'V'), the owner states that the replacement motor is a freshly bored (.030) 283ci with KB domed pistons. It is equipped with an Edelbrock tri-power intake, three Rochester 2V carburetors and Duntov solid-lifter cam. The front oil filler tube is old-school 283 and a set of finned valve covers are period-correct. The new custom exhaust system includes Fenton 4-2 cast headers with cutouts and glass packs. New fuel lines and tank supply petro. There is an Ansen scatter shield housing a clutch that engages a 3-speed manual transmission with factory column shifter. An upgraded dual master and front discs/rear drums furnish stopping power. With new shocks all-around and BFGoodrich tires mounted on period-correct American alloys, this Bowtie is a 'hugger'. If you are thinking about a '57 Project, take a moment and look again at the photos. This mostly original Tri-Five Chevy is ready for a new owner who will spend the time and effort to make it a classic, or just drive it hard for fun. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
