Default C1 Here are pictures of my newly aquired 57

This car has been in Las Vegas for the past 40 years or so. I don't know where it came from originally but from the under side it is obviously a rust free western states car.

V.I.N. E57S102890

20 year old resto driven sparingly with driver quality paint.

Has a 67 327/275 with 4 speed. Car is too early for a 4 speed so it was a 3 speed new.

Hard top and soft top.

I paid $47000. and think it is well bought.

You stole it. I've been looking at '57's for years, and only raggedy ones have popped up for under 65-75k. Very nice car.

I was actually looking for a 58 and looked at everyone I could find on the net anywhere in the country. They all wanted MORE for like condition 58s so I felt I had to buy this car.

Beauty. There was a Cascade Green/Beige '57 in my town with an OEM 327/365hp and a four speed. Me likes these with a hi-perf 327.
