Description for Chevrolet Other 1957

The most unique '57 Chevy you'll ever see is now on the market! It's an original 1957 Chevy Short bus that has been modified into an Attention Getting Street Rod! This is a running. driving. street legal bus that is at a point now that someone can finish customizing it to their liking. It has a "Rat Rod" look to it now. but don't let that fool you about the time. money. and quality that has been put into it. - The original 6 cylinder and standard transmission have been replaced with a low mileage 454 BBC and a Turbo 400 automatic transmission that was built for a motorhome. - All bolt on engine components. i. e. . radiator. battery. starter. alternator. Edelbrock 4 Barrel carburetor. breather. B&M shifter. etc. were purchased brand new. - I shortened the back of the bus by 42" to make it symmetrical from front to back. - The roof has been chopped approximately 11 inches. - The original dually rear end has been replaced with a 14 bolt single wheel rear end. - It has 18x8" Fuel wheels on the front. and 20x12s on the rear. - The original side body metal was removed and replaced with 14 gauge sheet metal. - It has diamond plate on the floor of the interior and pontoon boat seats down each side. The interior setup is more like a limo than a school bus. There is still plenty to be done to this bus. but I drive it regularly just like it is! I really didn't have any intentions of selling it when I started building it. but I'm looking to move on to something else. It's at a real good point for someone else to finish it to their liking. **I reserve the right to end this auction early. as this vehicle is for sale locally. and I will accept offers for immediate purchase at any time. **
