    i am working on a sweet deal on this 1957 belair 4 door, original paint two owner var, factory 283 with a slip and slide powerglide.. very nice interior and under 100 miles on the rebuilt motor, runs and drives anywhere.. not bad for $2,500.00 i think it's a great 1st project for my 17 year old son, now he won't have to settle for one of those Honda wannbe's that his mom wants to get him...

    it's not my first choice but i can't beat the fact that it's all original and runs and drives.. the owner told me it was a 1954, silly old lady...
     
  7. it looks rusty, ... ok i'll give you 2,600 so you dont lose out ;)
     
  8. I drove that car!
    Well, one like it I mean. Second car I ever had. More door post, three on the tree and black. Put a Hurst floor shifter in it and thought I was super cool!!!
    Traded my 31 Model A for it. Wish I still had both cars now!!!!!

    Hell yeah that'll make a bitchin' first car! That's good because SBC parts are dirt cheap and there's a load of repop tri-five parts. He's gonna have some fun! :D

    Nothing like a chevy 4-door! Check out my threads, I have a 1958 Chevy 4 door hard-top with original paint and interior, similar to yours!

    I looked at one just like that but in far worse condition for $2500.





    30 years ago. Good deal.
     
  14. Thanks for posting the license number, i am on my way over there right now! Hope you get to it before me.
















    Just kidding but you might want to block out the license number, had i wanted i or anybody else could have found out where it is at.

    Sheesh.

    $2,500? Nice score. And any time you keep someone out of a Honda or Toyota its a good day.

    Wow really nice a good candidate for a 2 door sedan conversion. :)
     
  20. That baby would be a snap to do a 2dr conversion on.

    Damn it TexasDart beat me to it!
