Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1957

1957 Chevy truck, 1500 series (paid $4000 for truck alone)
California truck with minimal rust. California title.

First photo shows truck in the original condition before modifications started.
1) Original drivetrain has been removed and is not available.
2) Bed removed and metal work in good shape. All wood bed supports blasted and painted. Bed sides and tailgate in great shape.
3) All 4 Fenders removed, striped and primed.
4) Front clip removed, good shape.
5) Crossmember kit which uses Corvette front suspension installed Doner parts from 2000 corvette with coil over shocks installed. (Installed kit plus doner parts cost several thousand dollars)
6 Motor mounts and transmission mount set up for LS1. LS1 and t ransmission not included.
7) Cab is still on frame. New lower door skins installed. Gas tank removed from cab. Gas tank filler cap removed and metalwork has been filled and smoothed Good glass on cab. Rare big window cab with good rear window.
8) Rear axle from Ford explorer ( give the correct width needed for a 57 truck without shortening the axles) installed with 5 link rear suspension. Coil over shocks are not installed and not included. ( 5 link kit cost me about $500 plus installation.....my point is the parts alone on this post are worth well more than you'll pay for the whole project).

10) Ready for you to finish. I've got too many projects right now, so this one has to go.
