1957 Chevrolet Other Pickups

Bid now to put it in your garage.

One way or another, this truck will be gone on October 29.

My full garage is your opportunity to own a super-sweet 57 Chevy Truck

Face it, if you're looking at this ad you're either randomly curious or you've always wanted one of theseawesome Chevrolet Task Force trucks.

The problem is . . . restoring one of these fromthe ground up is super pricey.

As much as you'd love a "restored to original condition" model . . . you'd never want to drive it and what fun would that be.

And buying a full-on custom means more big bucks.

What to do?

This could be the truck you're looking for

I have $25,000 in this truck. You can own it for a whole lot less.

I bought this truck three years ago from a guy down in Oregon who restored cars as a serious hobby. He had two sixtyfoot long buildings full of mouth-watering gear. He had done a frame-off restoration of this beauty about five years before I met him andbasically let it sit, taking it out for the occasional parade.
The restoration was done to a high standard with one notable miss which I'll get to. The five years of sitting meant I wound up putting a chunk of change into it to get it right. Money you don't have tospend.
I can't say for sure the mileage on the build. The guy I bought it from said he had 500 miles and I have put a around 1500 miles on it.
Exterior
Paint is Cascade Green with white accents (Toyota color code). Note, original trim, badges and mirrors were deleted during therestoration. The panels are straight, nobondo that I can find, and the panel fit is what youwould expect for a truck of this vintage.You'll note some small chips in a fewlocations which marks this truck as what it is, a head-turning driver. Nothing anyone will notice unless you point it to them.
The truck rides on a set of late modelrallye wheels at a standard ride height. Headlights are halogen. Windows have a nice light tint.
The bed is done in light oak with stainless trim. For some reason gawkers are especially impressed with this detail.
Interior
Interior is stock with a couple of notable exceptions. The first is the very nicely done bench seatupholstery withembroidered "Heartbeat". Love it or hate it . . . everyone who checks out the truck loves it. The second is the instrument binnacle. I put that in and I like it.You may not in which case you can reinstall the stock instrumentation which I have. The third is the steeringwheel and Ididit column. Note there is no heater or radio installed.
Underneath
The truck came to me with the frame painted, fresh drum brakes, fresh shocks, a 350 crate motor and a TH350 transmission.
Here's where the "sitting for five years" came in. Since owning it, I have done the following . . .
  • New gas tank, fuel pump, fuel filter and Carter (Edlebrock) 650 carb to deal with the varnishing that hadoccurred.
  • New MSD distributor,spark plugs, wires and looming
  • New harmonic balancer
  • New drive shaft
  • New rear springs (with shims to properly cant the differential)
The part Isimply can't figure out or explain is the crummy metal work up under the passenger side fender. It looks to me like someone got tired fixing metal and decided to paint over it. There's no rust there. Just an ugly blemish on what is otherwise a super nice truck.
I have about $25,000 in it.This truck truly does turn heads wheneverI drive it and generates more smiles per mile thananything I've owned. I have set a very friendlyreserve. Comes with cover, original instrument panel, some randomtrim andspare parts.
This truck should be in your garage! Message me with your questions. Good luck!
