    Listed as being "in excellent original condition " and "a true survivor". Looks like they left out the, owned by a little old lady who only drove it to church on Sunday, when there was no chance of rain, line.:cool:

  11. I think it might be. That looks really good on that truck. I'd almost be hard pressed to pick what I like better, the hood on that truck or the quads and '56 olds bumper on the truck Mick just posted above. Maybe a merc hood, quads and a 56 Olds bumper.....hmmmmm

    I dig this '57, all the way through, but does it look unfinished without a different wheel treatment?

  16. @'Mo With the beltline trim and window contour that looks more like 1955-56 Oldsmobile 4 door hardtop roof to me.

    I wonder if the trim is just on the outside to give the look of 3-piece glass......
