I was lucky enough to purchase this car over the summer at an estate sale in Sterling, IL. For anybody who may be familiar with my Henry J, “The Abomination”, well... this 57 was almost the Abomination. I first saw this car when I was about 12. I was already looking for a gasser project and was out and about with my dad when we spotted this 57 in the weeds next to a barn. I managed to chat with the owner and look the car over, but it wasn’t for sale and the “let it go price” was steep. I never saw the car again, nor did I have a picture. 2 years later I bought my Henry J. Fast forward 16 years and my buddy Neighborkidswillys texts me a picture of this car. The owner had passed away and this car along with a field of others went up for auction. Here’s what I know about the car from it’s context clues. It was originally raced with a parallel leaf tube axle and was painted gold. The fronts are 15x4 cragars and the rear wheels are 16x10 steel slots with the old gold paint still under the primer. The front clip, doors, and trunk lid are fiberglass. The floors are aluminum. The rearend is a Chrysler 8 3/4. All of the windows are lexan. The front clip has no traces of gold which leads me to believe that it went under a transformation from the gold version. The next version appears to have been painted bronze, has a heavy engine set back, and looks to have possibly run a supercharger with a big catcher cut into the windshield. After that, the blower motor must have been removed, the hole in the hood was patched, the windshield replaced, the car was painted gray primer, and run with a dual quad setup. The leaf springs were removed and the axle was solid mounted to frame and a rack and pinion steering added. ANY information would be greatly appreciated.
