General Information

I retired 7-1-06, have spent last 10 months remodeling/adding on to my shop. I am finally ready to build my 1957 150. I have built several 57 Chevy's over the years, during the late 80's to early 90's built and showed a 57 2dr Ht, that I had named "the Big Bopper"
I have always loved the 57 150's and saved a rust free car back to build someday when I retire and that time has finally come. I plan to do the traditional 150 2-tone using black and charcoal gray, a fairly stock looking interior with some subtle upgrades. (black leather and the original cobblestone cloth). The engine is another thing I saved for a future build, it is a 1970 LS6 454 that I just finished prepping and is ready for the final test fit. I plan on having 4-wheel disc brakes, I have a narrowed 9" Ford rear end and looking forward to the build and can't wait to drive this baby.
