Hi everyone. I recently posted a thread re. serious sellers and this whole idea of buying another '57, got me thinking which could be dangerous. The car I would like to eventually purchase, would be a '57 Belair 4d ht. It would have to be done or very close to it. I'm presently not an active buyer. I do look a lot though and if the right car came along, I could have a sincere interest. Over a period of time, I noticed that there doesn't appear to be a lot of interest in the '57 4d ht. and I'm not sure why. They seem to be a stepchild. They don't reproduce a lot of parts unique for that model. Their value is much lower then the Belair 2d ht and the Belair 2d sedan . I have to wonder why?? Am I missing something? Personally, I like them a lot. I like the sleekness of the way the rear roof melds into the body, the 4 doors could be convenient if you have company and the openness you have when all the windows are down. I really like the looks of this model car. But again, I don't want to get in over my head if there is something wrong with this model I don't know about. I know the condition/stability of the "B" pillar can be a concern. Trim parts could also be a concern if missing or in sad shape. I believe several members have a '57 Belair 4d ht. I see one in their Avatar. I would like to hear from them or anyone who has experience with owning this model. I know it can be said, your money, buy what you like, what makes you happy. I would subscribe to that approach. I just want to be as well informed as I can when it comes time. I thank everyone in advance for their replies, Carmine.
