My '55 from the sixties'...
Identical to the '56 (not actual picture) that I used to have, also in the sixties'...
and my '57 fifty-some years later...
A few of my favorites...
I would like to see more details on this cool 57
the strait axle set up
My 55 before any upgrades. Then as an E/Gasser, then as a street car. No longer have it
My 57 Chevy. Still have it
My 55 handy man wagon used to set low in the rear like the one pictured. I moved the rear springs inward centered under the frame. now it sets a bit higher.
Really cool my car was white at one time with a black vinyl top before I had it.
Love your 57’, sure wish I had kept mine! Don’t ever sell her, you will regret it!!
It is a friends car. I will try to get more pictures next time I see him. My 57 210 is in pieces in my shop being redone.
I started this tread, and this is my 55 .
Keep posting trifives!
Here is the 55........

My Nomad in '85, still have it.
Here's a neat custom '57 I saw at a car show last year, has the same setup, but I'm sure it was done for custom effect and not by the factory, this one was a Belair to start with.
And here's an updated pic of my '57 from post #59, now with proper 2 door conversion but a lot more lost paint. The heavily weathered/peeled paint isn't really appropriate for a 60's look although it was applied around that time.
This was some high school kid's hotrod in the 70's (before I was born) and had been repainted multiple times. Although if I ever repaint it, I really like the mild custom look the most and would probably lean more in that direction.
