1957 Chevrolet Pickup
1955 was an interested year for Chevrolet Pickups. As they transitioned to a new design known as the "Task Force Series" they continued to sell the "Advance Design Series" meaning you can find examples of both body styles in the same year. Some industry firsts were incorporated into the new series like the first ever wrap around windshield and they eliminated the running boards in exchange for an in cab step and smaller rear bed step which allowed the cab to be taller. 1957 was also a unique year because it is the only year for the more opened grill and the flatter hood with two spears as a nod to the Bel Airs. This 1957 Chevrolet Pickup is an absolutely gorgeous truck that has under gone a full nut and bolt frame off restoration. The project started in 2014 and took 8 years to complete. With only 547 miles since being finished it is a really fresh build. Anyone who builds cars will tell you there is no way you could replicate the truck for our asking price. Plus being so fresh you are basically getting a just completed vehicle for a fraction of the cost to build. You also don't have put in any labor or all the time waiting on it to be done. The truck was completely disassembled and put back together by the professional shop Killer Ridez. It comes with a stack of receipts documenting the entire process and build pictures are also available. The body is all laser straight and entirely rust free. It is painted in a very nice Victory Red paint that has a beautiful finish. All of the chrome and trim has been replaced so it looks like new. In exchange for the original rear bumper a custom tail pan was fabricated and houses LED taillights in billet bezels. The tailgate area has been modified by filling the typically open holes on the bed sides and utilizing a hidden latch set up with straps on the inside instead of exterior chains. It really cleans it up nicely. The bed has been custom painted with a Chevy bowtie with an American Flag theme. Look closely and you will see a hidden "57" painted in the flag. This was done as an homage to the owners brother who was a Veteran and the previous owner of the truck. It is a nice conversation piece and very well done. The bed was all redone with new wood and stainless strips which use hidden bolts. The gas tank was relocated to be under the bed and the original filler smoothed. Its pretty obvious "clean" and "slick" were the thoughts during the build process. You now fill it with gas through the bed in a stainless push button cap. The truck has an awesome stance and sits on a set of new 18 inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with fresh Neosport tires.
Turning those tires is a crate 383 Stroker motor that runs really strong. It is very nicely dressed up with chrome and polished components every where you look. It has been built up with an Edelbrock Performer manifold, Edelbrock carburetor, custom painted Edelbrock valve covers, a custom painted air cleaner, Summit serpentine belt system, MSD distributor, MSD wires, and ATK high performance aluminum heads. The engine compartment has been kept very clean with a smooth painted firewall and painted inner fenders. Even the way a lot of the lines were run was done to keep them hidden and out of sight. It runs nice and cool despite the Texas heat thanks to the KKS all aluminum radiator with shroud and electric fan. Paired with the motor is an automatic transmission and 12 bolt rear end. It drives down the road great with nice upgrades including the power steering and power brake systems with Wilwood discs. It has a Mustang II style front end set up and adjustable coil overs and a 4 link in the rear. The underneath of the truck is just as clean as the top with the entire chassis being powder coated. That not only keeps it protected but makes it super easy to detail if you want to show it off at shows. The truck sounds great through headers into dual Magnaflow mufflers.
The all Red interior looks like new and features a bench seat with matching lap belts. The carpet, door panel, headliner, and seats all look perfect. It has a custom made center console with cupholders and the tall shifter with piston shifter knob. The dash is very nicely painted and in the original gauge area is now an all-in-one Classic Instruments gauge cluster. It also features all chrome knobs, an aftermarket stereo, chrome Vintage AC controls, and inset billet vents. In front of the driver is a chrome adjustable tilt column topped off with a custom matching leather wrapped steering wheel.
This is one clean pickup and has to be one of the nicest '57s out there. It will take home awards anywhere it goes and needs nothing but a new owner behind the wheel.
You couldn't come close to replicating it for $82,500.00!
