1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Additional Info:

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION SO THAT THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THIS CAR. This car was listed last summer and the auction ended with a winning bidder who questioned my ethics and honesty. If you are interested in this car, I can provide a reference from a reputable company that many people know in the hot rod industry. I can only assume that the winning bidder from last summer must have mental issues. Now on with the car.I purchased this car just over a year ago and realized that the project is beyond my capabilities.
FRAME: The frame is clean and solid. I can only assume that the body was off at one time.SUSPENSION: Looks to be original.FLOORS: There has been repairs made on the floors however it looks like the floor sections that have been replaced were done with donor parts. Welding will be required if you want to keep the floors. The trunk floor has still has rusted through areas.ROCKERS: The rocker panels were replaced but done poorly. Expect to rework themBODY: Again, there has been patches made in the body and done poorly. The patches were made with donor car parts. Expect to rework some of the body panels. (if not all)ENGINE & TRANNY: 350/350. Was told that it was running when removed from a Monte Carlo. Please look at the pictures. It needs components to get running again.CONVERTIBLE TOP: The top irons are in great shape and it still has the old canvas. THERE IS A NEW TOP (MATERIAL) THAT IS INCLUDED. (SEE PIC.) There are two top cylinders and pump motor but they will need repair or replacing.TRIM PIECES: The 57 convertible has some unique (and expensive) trim. This car comes with it all. You will need to purchase a rear window garnish molding available for about 90 dollars from Eklers.GLASS: The windshield is NEW and installed. Also the door glass and wing vent glass is new but not installed. (see pics.)INTERIOR: The seats are there and some misc door & rear panels. Gauges have not been tested.
Here is what you should expect from this car: Expect to buy parts: Expect to do a lot of welding: Expect to do body work: Expect to do mechanical work.: Expect to buy and install a new interior: Expect to re-wire the entire car. Expect to paint the car. In other words, expect to do a full restoration.
I have focused on the bad things on this car because I don't want anyone to be angry when they find out that the car needs work. There are a lot of good things about the car. The car has potential and is a good candidate for restoration. The car is mostly complete.
I am making no guarantees as to the condition, or the previous work, or the authenticity of the previous work and parts used on this car. It is being sold AS IS. No returns or refunds. I encourage anyone to inspect the car prior to bidding. No international sales. Buyer is to arrange transport at your expense. I will help load on your transport of your choice.
I have a title. Cowl tag and VIN tag have been removed from the car and included in the auction (see pic)
A non refundable deposit is due immediately after the auction of $500.00. The remainder is due within 72 hours by bank wire. NO bidders with under a feedback of 20 please.
I am in North Dakota and its winter time. I understand that weather conditions can make your plans change when arranging transport. I will be reasonable with time however I would like for the car to be picked as soon as possible.
