1957 CHEVY 150 HANDYMAN WAGONThis is a 1957 Chevrolet 150 Handyman Wagon. I bought this wagon years ago to do a frame-off restoration. Just haven't had the time or surplus cash to restore it. Last year some genius decided to use my car as scaffolding, which caused these huge dents in the roof. The car is pretty complete. There is a spare front fender and stainless/trim in the cargo area.
RAREST OF THE RARE!!!
The car is not "all-original". It originally came with a 6-cylinder and 3 on the tree, but now has a 327 V8 with a Muncie 4-speed. It does run and can be moved around to get it on a trailer. It does need a battery, but I will provide a 24-series battery once it sells and make sure it runs before you receive it. It will need floor pans and spare tire area pan. According to my paint/body person, who has been doing restorations for 30+ years, the roof is repairable. There is rust on the gutter line as shown in the pictures. Most of the dents from the "workers" can probably be pushed back out. There is some damage to one of the front fenders, but as I said above, there is a replacement fender in the cargo area. Hinges are good. Most of the chrome will need re-plating.
The car comes with a Vermont Certificate of Registration. Vermont does not title cars older than 15 years, so the registration should be sufficient to transfer the car in any state.
Local pickup only. Buyer to arrange shipping. Do not bid unless you intend to buy!!!
DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THE RAREST 1957 CHEVY!!! THERE WERE LESS OF THESE PRODUCED THAN THE CONVERTIBLES AND FAR LESS HAVE SURVIVED!!! THEY ARE VERY HARD TO FIND UNRESTORED!!!

Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. PickupTrucks.com has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.

So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. PickupTrucks.com says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.
They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.

We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.
The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.
Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.
