My buddy Pete V. and I purchased a 1957 Chev for parts back in June of 1987. The seller was way over his head because this car was not worth restoring. The floor was completely rotten and parts of the frame were rotten as well. We bought the 57 to take parts that we required for our own 57 Chev's and the rest we were going to sell at vintage car swap meets, which we did. Pete and I did very well with the selling of parts and we paid very little for the car. The sellers parents wanted the car off of their drive way right away. We had some fun taking the car apart along the way. It seems a shame because the car looks very complete but it was no way restorable and the motor was seized. The motor was a later 350 Chev V-8 with a three speed Turbo Hydramatic. Pete's mother in law was decent enough to let us take the car apart in her back yard. Memories.
