    A shot of mine.

    Anyone familiar with the torque tube on these? If so message me. I have a noise coming from inside the tube on mine that sounds like and feels like something rubbing on the inside of the tube???

  8. Here are a pair of 57's my dad owned. He bought the yellow Century in 1987 from the original owner in Cumberland, B.C. for $1000 the car was all original with twin antennas and dual mirrors out on the front fenders. They bought it new at a dealer in Courtenay, B.C. He sold it in the early 1990's to some one from Edmonton, Alberta. He bought the blue Super from an actor in Lions Bay, B.C. in 1990 for around $3300 and later sold it too :(

    Guys, where can I get a float (fuel) sending unit for my '57 Special? I got one from a vendor that 'said' it was the same as for a 55-57 Chevy but it's way off. Mine is only a float and the one I got was a pickup a

    Still kickin myself for not buying this very nice Century about 20 yrs ago. IIRC , it was less than $5k.
    Ran great and sounded nice.

    And, this is one that I did buy but never did anything with it. It didn't run and needed extensive work on all the lower body. Sold it to a guy in Arizona for parts he needed to finish a restoration.

    Excuse my SIL's butt. LOL
