Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1957

Available at Mecum MontereyLot # F193 - Friday Aug. 24th, 2018
This fresh, professional, frame-off nut & bolt build was completed by the renowned builder Steven Pope of Nor-Cal. This flawless 1957 Chevrolet Pro-Touring Resto-Mod Pick-Up is absolutely stunning. With no expense spared, this build is absolutely spectacular with a perfect balance between elegance and hot rod.
The stunning Atomic Orange finish is gorgeous and is complimented with exquisite dark saddle leather interior. The paint appears to be miles deep with several layers of clear applied bringing a brilliant shine which literally explodes in the sunlight. The paint is absolutely stunning!
The interior features a beautiful custom dark saddle design. The elegant interior hosts a custom Glide Engineering dark saddle tone leather seat with matching dark saddle kick panels and headliner. Compliments to the custom interior include: a full custom gauge cluster, polished tilt steering column, custom Fesler steering wheel, smoothed dash, and custom foot pedals & custom hardware throughout. For comfort and convenience, the cab is equipped with ID TOUCH keyless ignition (no need for a glob of key on a key ring), power windows, tilt steering column, power steering, seat belts, security system and remote start.
Powering this classic hot rod pickup is a professionally built MERLIN Racing Engine producing a dynamometer (dyno test) of 782 horse power!!! With the built 496 cubic inch power house, this beauty has the right balance of power, responsiveness and sound to be a hot rod yet still built to drive and enjoy on pump gas. The engine features a 871 Weiand blower, 2 Holly four-barrel carburetors, color matched valve covers, polished alternator, polished water pump, Flowmasters exhaust, aluminum radiator with dual fans and a CPP steering box. The engine is linked to a freshly rebuilt turbo 400 automatic transmission with shift kit which shifts smoothly through the gears and feeds to an 9" Ford rear-end. Mechanically excellent, this beauty fires up instantly and settles into a nice healthy idle. You can imagine with the 782 Horse Power and the lightweight of this pickup, when it is time to go fast, this powerhouse leaves the rest behind!!!
The custom Pro-Touring suspension includes: Camaro front suspension, 4-link coil overs, disk brakes, new fuel cell (relocated under the bed and dual Flowmaster exhaust. On the corners, this gorgeous pickup rides on brand new staggered wheels and tires. The front wheels are 20" Coys Wheels wrapped in brand new 235/35/20 Pirelli tires. The rear wheels are 20" Coys Wheels wrapped in brand new 335/30/20 Pirelli tires. The undercarriage of this truck is so clean you could eat off of it (please see photos)!!!
The stunning bed is finished in beautiful oak which compliments the gorgeous Atomic Orange paint perfectly. The bed is one of the nicest I have seen. The firewall has been smoothed for an extremely clean engine bay look. Countless man-hours have been invested into this beautiful hot rod to make sure all of the body panels line up perfectly with precise gaps throughout. Further, this beauty is upgraded with ID TOUCH keyless ignition, power windows, power steering and power brakes for the convenience and luxury of a modern day vehicle.
Coming out of a fresh professional build with only 722 test miles on the clock, this one-of-a-kind beauty is still a trailer queen but is ready & built to drive, show and enjoy. This fabulous 1957 Chevy pro-touring Restomod pickup is as clean as they come and ready to win shows and be enjoyed.
This vehicle has undergone a fresh & complete frame-off, nut & bolt professional build and has a clean title.
