    That's my favorite model of '57 Chevy! The 150 series in a 2dr post are very cool!

    This was even more rare, it was the Utility Sedan, no back seat,rear 1/4 windows were fixed in place.Someone had made a tonneau cover for the cargo space years ago,barely visible in Mike's pic above.

  14. Thank you for saying so Butch. It's been painted for awhile but the economy has put a halt on progress. So it rests in my garage, for now. Once I sell enough junk I'll continue.

    That car sat around the corner from me in a garage in Vallejo for years. Last time I saw it was about 1984, I remember it having Keystone mags back then.
