Dam nice looking rides David. The 56 nomad looks great, more pic's if you would.
This belongs to a friend:
Here is a shot in my drive way 55 more door for the family 56 chevy truck and the black 57 chevy 210 will be a real real low buck spin on Scott's famous black 57 I call this one rust-olivan and the wheels are going on.
rustnpz-that '57 is way cool! Black 210 hardtop. Wow and rare.The little boy made a good choice in wheels.
what is his supension set up?
this is mine as of today..my 56
Well, winters over (and here again), and the transformation is complete. Here's what it looks like now:
To me the 1955 chevy was the best design of Chevy up to that point. My family were GM folks and we had been eating shit with the stovebolt six for some years. My uncles even tried to run a Rocket motor in there 50 chevy club coupe. When the 55 chevy came out everyone in the family could not wait to get one or at least a motor. I think by 1968 they had their first 55 chevy 327 4 speed car, a six cylinder 411 rear. It was unbeatable. That car is long gone however I keep the spirit alive with my 55. I get so mad when someone ask "what year is that" if you don't know nothing else you should know when chevolet came out with their second v8 and first sucessfull V8. This 57 was at a show here not mine but very very nice. What happened to our auto industry.
a 55 we did last summer
This is a bad ass 57 chevy...
the '55 belongs to my bro, and the '56 my dad. both big block 4spd cars.
just got me another, bought my first one when I was 15, so 30 years later....
1957 210 Sedan, Mild built 350, Alum intake, 4 speed...Maybe installing the mill out of my 35 master and doing a tuneport 350/700R in the master...
next motor to go in....maybe...
love those 57 150/210 cars!!
here's my five7
ONE BAD FIVE7
Something different, a photo of my 56 chevrolet 210 with warmed over 350 and 350 tranny with our matching vintage Scotty trailer which we drive all over the southwest going to various car shows. Enjoying seeing different cars and love rving. Quite the freak show going down the highway. Lots of thumbs up. Alonf with the color matching the interior matches the 56 along with the wheel well cutouts on the trailer and the TT wheels. Car has big block springs in anticipation of a big block that never made it and front end is up in the air a bit. Everyone says lower it, and I say it is lowered after having another straight axle 56.lol. Lots of family fun.
Big Mac, this 55 is gorgeous! Anymore pics?
trying to get the hardtop done this winter
I finished this one in Aug. and sold it around Halloween!
Any body remember which post had a photo of '55 Chevy with the hood's Chevy emblen mounted in the center of the grill ? Thanks!
Now thats one NICE '57! amazing what a wheel and tire combo plus a nice lowering will do to a car!
Here's my grocery getter. Buttoning up the A.M. frame swap. Little wiring, fluids, fuel line, exhaust and bumpers . . . we're almost there! Interior is next. Just finished my sewing room and now researching patterns and fabrics to come up with a design.
Here some old pics.The black rag had 58 Buick 1/4's on it.It was shown here in NJ.And the white 56 was still around as of 10 years ago.
i just came in my shorts. your '57 is awesome! killer stance, the right wheels, etc.
I love this car!! More pics please!!
Here's the one I built when I was a kid and then sold to the guys on the door. Campaigned in Maryland.
Working on replacing a quarter....and shaving the gas door...
this is badass
