Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1957

This is one very cool truck, and when finished will for sure turn some heads. It came from a guy in Washington that bought it from a junk yard in Bremerton. I have the original registrations from the steering column that show it's life from 57 to when it was laid to rest in 67. The odometer shows about 74,576, so we figured we could get it running. We did that though maybe a little off. New starter helped, but a little tune up would be in order. We did a lot of cleaning, light sanding, then some clear coating to preserve the killer patina. The drive shaft was bent, and the front seat shot, but everything else seems to be there. There's rust for sure, but overall a pretty solid truck. I did some pretty cool metal work to the bottom of both doors (pics) that adds to that rat look. There is still a lot of work of to do to finish this truck, so I say don't spend the dime if you can't do the time. Ask questions if you need to.
