1957 Chevrolet Other Pickups

It's winter, nd you need a project! More importantly, ou'd like a new project that will not result in tetanus shots. You're looking for a vintage pickup that is not rusted to death, ut still clearly represents a seminal year of car styling, ike 1957. Check out this 1957 Chevy 3100 pickup, urrently offered at no reserve. It's been garaged in northern CA for decades, nd driven pretty much nowhere; it's a shop truck that benefits from auto parts delivery (in the pizza sense). In other words, t has been fired up and operated regularly by certified mechanics for years, nly to move it in and out of a shop on a daily basis. It's weird, es, ut you know how projects can go, specially when you're wrenching on customers' cars . . . Keep reading.
This '57 Chevy is powered by a 327 small block with the double-hump heads--for those who still prefer the old-school small block, his one's a winner, nd it purrs. The 327 is backed by a four-speed manual transmission, hich currently only powers the rear differential--it's all GM underneath. You can drive this truck home. More importantly, ou can do so with the comforts of power steering and air conditioning. Don't let the tough-guy exterior fool you--this beast does have some creamy filling!
While the truck is very solid, oth structurally and cosmetically (sheet metal is excellent), t is a clean slate for your build plans. It is currently sitting on a four wheel-drive front suspension and axle, ut the drive train is missing the transfer case and front drive shaft. For another $500.00 or so, ou can source the remaining drivetrain components locally and be four-wheeling in no time. You may also choose to go low-rider, nd swap in a modern two-wheel drive front suspension from an outfitter like TCI, rt Morrison, r Rod & Custom, nd hit the cruise in style. Today's hotrod parts market makes it very simple to go either way, rom pro-touring to pro-street, specially if you're handy in the garage. You can also drive the pickup as is . . .
This pickup is a perfect example of why you look to the West Coast for a vintage car project/driver. The truck is ready to go, nd will be sold as is. Bid with confidence, nd avoid the tetanus shots.
