    ONE OWNER! Purchased new Dec.6 1956
    Has always been a custom. Loved it the
    first time I ever saw a '57 they came out
    on a friday and I ordered it on Monday morning.

    Ya know, even though I am strictly a Ford guy, and have several friends who own 57's, it's just hard to imagine the 50's without them. Couldn't imagine car styles today without them.

    My very first 57 that I owned in 1968. Sold it like many other guys to go to Vietnam. Had a 283, corvette solid lifter cam, vertex magneto, T-10 4 speed and 4.88 gears with posi. Sold it for $1200. in Feb. 69.

    My current one is still under construction

    57belair I am always in awe of your car! What a work of art! You were my motivation to add a 57 Buick grill to my 57 chevy.

    Hi,
    My first car was a 57 in 1974, I think I paid $350 for it. Current one was bought about 10 years ago and the build kind of stalled in my garage. However I have renewed my commitment lately and have started visiting the garage 3 or 4 times per week to finish up.

    Rick

    It only took me this long to get it in paint:

    Wish it was a "finished" pic, but where would the fun be in that?

    Let the drool begin!!! Lol. Here's our 150 Inca Silver Imperial Ivory 2 dr. It has a 327 with correct dual 4 setup from a 57. There is an FI example somewhere, maybe someone will chime in and let us know??

    I owned a '57 150 sedan in 1960...won a lot of street races with it...and you can read about that in my first book (Bangin' Gears & Bustin' Heads), now on Kindle. Over the years, I owned 30 of 'em -all at once...used to buy four-doors for $50.00 or $75.00 bucks and tear 'em apart...spare parts...!!!

    Here's one of mine in 1970...after some loser made a left turn where there wasn't one...cost me a ticket, the insurance company and the repair on the '57.

  26. The light blue has been a dedicated race car since 1965 and was the Super Chevy Shoot-out winner at Orange County in '80 and '81 with a 409/425.

    The two-tone 150 is a current project that is stalled. This thread is motivating me to get back at it.
