Hi to all....I am selling a potentially very high end rolling project: a 1957 Chevy Bel Air 2 door post
The pro-built chassis features a 1969 Chevelle front end grafted to the original frame, built with Global West Tubular Control Arms, heavy duty sway bar, quick ratio power steering box, etc. On the back end, a 1975 Corvette 3:08 Posi rear end was installed, so this 57 has 4 wheel disc brakes. The tubular steel mounting brackets are designed to keep a 0 degree caster and camber setting, just as it is on the original 1975 Corvette.
The installed motor is a Chevy 383 Stroker with Edelbrock aluminum heads, Edelbrock Tuned-Port Fuel Injection..equipped with Haas Pistons and a Lunatti Crank, heat coated headers..all linked to a beefed 700R4 Automatic Transmission
The body is rust free and super straight...the original floors and rockers, trunk floor are all rock solid...front fenders, hood and rear deck lid are all very nice straight originals with no rust
Through the years we have purchased the vast majority of reproduction parts from Danchuk including headlight assemblies, taillights, bumper ends to go with rechromed front and rear bumpers, quarter panel aluminum inserts, In addition, the interior features restored power front and rear seats from a 1969 Cadillac El Dorado that are done in black vinyl leatherette with a 2" pleat...front seat has head rests and center pulldown arm rest, interior garnish moldings have been chromed, Pete and Jake Billet dash trim, tons more like mirrors, door handles, rocker moldings, emblems, custom third brake light, lenses, restored headlight buckets
Needs a front grill, gas tank. glass, wiring kit, power brake booster, fuel and brake lines, etc.
The engine and transmission costs to build totalled over $11K..the front end work and parts, plus the rear end work and parts totalled over 8K, the original cost of the car before the build was $7K (15years ago). Rechroming the front (one piece) and rear bumper, plus all the Danchuk parts was another $3k....total $29K....what is it worth to someone now and what are you willing to pay? will listen to all realistic offers, maybe even a partial trade please call me at 818-7849820..I will be donating a portion of the sale to assist homeless and needy veterans, their families and others who live on the streets by purchasing food, clothing and other items of personal need..Thank you and may God Bless...Robert
if you are serious about building a very nice 57 ..let's talk..there is a tremendous amount of work already done on this exceptional body 57...I will produce a fully detailed inventory of every part the buyer will receive...Clear title in my name, non-op status, original gold backing with black letter California plates included
