We Love Sedan Deliveries

  1. They looked especially strange in '60s gasser trim -- jacked up, they seemed ten feet tall.

    SPAM alert!! Anyone wanting to build a 37 Chevy Delivery here's your chance. My dad has one that he's owned for at least 30 years and its for sale. It's a total project, but it's mostly complete. PM me if you want details.
     
  3. The HAMB has a classified section for selling cars and parts... :D

    yea, I took notice the hamb, is getting strict on appling their rules. seems like things are changing. even in making a post on a fourm.
     
  5. Looks a little bit like George Cureton's Tokyo Rose with its second, blue paint job.
     

  6. I love em! They're rare, too. Sources say only 5,226 produced. I'm surprised we see as many as we do.

    Here's my Dad's chevy back in about 1972 in Odessa, Texas. I am not sure of the model but think it is a 38. This was taken shortly after he towed it home. Thats me on the hood with my older brother and sister on the lights. It was an abandoned laundry truck that ended up woth a 283, 4 speed, and a 57 chevy rear. I would like to find it or a close match for my Dad - I came close to finding one on the HAMB but the truck sold before I could check it out.

    No - this is the only photo that I know of. the interior and bodywork were done and it was in primer when he sold it.

    I own a (1 of 92) "57" Chevy Window/Delivery; as seen in my Avatar.I need to get photos of her!
    I've always "LOVED" the "Sedan Deliveries" of any make/year!
    June of 2003; I was out for an early morning cruise and saw a "57" Chevy "Nomad"(so I thought) For Sale. Drove passed...realized it was not a "Nomad"...went back(one of the best decisions I've ever made)! Sign read.."California Car/Government Issue/Forestry Vehicle-never saw a winter! 1 of 92 produced"! Looked her over...Very Clean! Had to have her!! Made a phone call and purchased her(cheap)! Always dreamed of owning a "57" Chevy. "LOVE" the body style!
    Powered by a SB400/700R4 Tranny.Last year;Custom exhaust by "Baron"..ceramic coated headers/flow masters.
    "Boyd Coddington" Rims; personally given to "alfin32"(as I was told by the guy I purchased it from).To my knowledge; "alfin32" purchased and had the "57" transported from California to Massachusetts. Eventually sold her to a "Snap-On" salesman...he needed quick $ to purchase a house...and there I was..."Right place at the Right time"! ....if this car could speak...WOW!! The stories it could tell! "Sedan Deliveries are COOL!; even with windows !! My plate reads "RARE57" !:D

    Nice "Deliveries"....your Avatar photo is "VERY NICE" ! :)
     
  19. Thanks, would love to know more about the window delivery.
     
  20. When I was a kid I was a 57 nut (still love em lol) and I went to check out what I thought was a two door wagon. The guy wanted what I thought was a little too much money for it. He told me it was a panel with window. Showed how the rear opened up etc. It really was a delivery, I guess it was some sort of government car.

    Nother one of those I shoulda bought it stories we all have.
     
  21. Here's a long-time, locally owned, '38 Chevy at the 2013 TRJ Revival in Baltimore.

  22. There was a 56 Chevy Forest Service wagon with the sedan delivery style rear door in the movie North by Northwest. The first one shown, not the second one. So many movies have a problem with continuity.

    Cool, a sedan delivery thread. All nice rides posted already. I have noticed more coming out of the woodwork the last few years. They are starting to get more love ;)

    Heres my 47 Chevy. I built it up over about a 4 year period, drive and use it as much as possible. 355 & m20.

    cheers

    Locate the vehicle identification number on the driver's side door jam.

    2
    Examine the first character of the VIN. This is the engine type. The letter V is used for a V8 engine. Six cylinder engine configurations were not listed.

    4
    Decode the third and forth characters of the VIN. This is the manufacturing year. The numbers 57 are used for a 1957 vehicle.
