1957 Chevy Chevrolet 210 4 Door Post Project Car Almost Complete

Up for sale is my 1957 Chevy Chevrolet 210. Been working on this car for a number of years, and finally decided it's time to move on.

I have too many other hobbies and projects, so my loss is your gain.

I'll try to be as detailed as possible, but I'm sure I'll forget something,

Essentially the car doesn't need much to be completed. Paint, some miscellaneous parts and re-assembly.

Most of the hard work has been done for you.

Recently the car had sat for over a year while I was busy working on projects around my house, and I had to replace the starter, battery and fuel pump.
(I drained the tank, and started with fresh fuel.)

ALL ARE NEW, and the car starts but it does idle a little rough. Could use a carb cleaning / rebuild.

I'm going to outline the details of the car below, hopefully this will help answer as many questions as possible.

Body:

The body has no major rust, with the exception of the front fenders in front of the doors. A common place to rust.
The only significant amount of bondo on the car is in the afore mentioned lower front fenders in front of the doors.
The floor and trunk pans have been replaced and are solid.
The car is primed with epoxy primer underneath a layer of 2K primer, with the exception of the top.
It needs some basic body work, and blocking to be ready for paint.
All glass is driver quality. (Brand new still in the box front windshield.)

Suspension:

The car has a 4" drop. Spindles, Springs, and blocks in the rear.
All of the front end parts are new, it was rebuilt and aligned.
The car has a power brake conversion from Matt's Bowties, front disc and rear drums.
Tires are in OK shape. They are large whitewalls. I would say two of four are decent.

Engine:

The engine is a 265 with an Edelbrock intake and Edelbrock 200CFM carb.
The generator was replaced with a standard alternator and conversion bracket from Classic Chevy.
The fuel pump is NEW.
The starter is NEW.
The radiator is a 4 row from Classic Chevy, and will support a 350 if you convert.
The motor has less than 3000 miles since rebuild.
I also still have the original intake & carb, if you are looking for an "original" car.

Driveline:
The transmission is a brand new 700R. This transmission will also bolt up to a 350.
It has been converted from 3 on the tree (used to have an inline 6, I no longer have that engine) to Automatic.
B&M Shifter on the floor.

Parts:

Brand new in the box front windshield.
Brand new in the box door sill plates.
Brand new in the box NOS Seat Covers (Navy Blue)
Visors have been recovered in Navy Blue.
Navy Blue Vinyl, about 6 yards to finish interior panels, etc.
Stainless Trim, driver quality, most pieces can be reused, some will need to be replaced.
Door Panels (in bad shape), needs new but I have the vinyl to cover them.
Front Bumper, hood bar, and grille bar. All driver quality.
Rear Bumper is like new, driver quality tail sections.
Blue dot brake lenses, NEW.
Billet review mirror w/flames.
Billet round peep mirrors w/flames.
Rear Fender Skirts
Brand new windshield clips, hardware.
Brand new windshield rubber.
Rear ORIGINAL back glass.
Side window glass.
All door handles, inner and outer.
Finned Original Chevy 265 Valve covers.
Brand new CHROME oil breather caps.

DISCLAIMERS:

I know I'm most likely forgetting a lot of extra parts. Most of what I have for the smaller items are new as far as I recall.

The car really doesn't need much to finish. What is missing or not of good quality can be found at most swap meets or bought through Classic Chevy.

The car is located EAST of Orlando, FL with a CLEAN Florida title IN HAND.

The car is sold as is / where is.

The buyer is responsible for pickup / and / or delivery. I will not deliver.

Absolutely NO TRADES will be considered. I have enough hobbies / projects already.

The car is for sale locally as well, and I reserve the right to end the auction early.

Upon sale, a $1000.00 NON-REFUNDABLE PayPal deposit is required.

Good luck and happy bidding!!!

If you have questions about something I did not cover here, call me directy @ THREE 2 ONE-804-3033. (NO TEXTS) Please try not to call after 10PM EST.

Use this PowerPoint when convincing your spouse to let you buy a Corvette

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 12:45:00 EST

When you are not the one in charge of the purse strings, creativity is a must when trying to get the string-holder to bankroll that next shiny object you just can't live without.
When I was a kid, I decided that life wasn't worth living if it weren't in pursuit of owning a GMC Typhoon. My 12-year-old self crafted a fiscal strategy that, when combined with my offer of a 49-percent share of ownership in the car in return for my parents' contribution of 80-percent of the purchase price, would see me behind the wheel of a Typhoon by the time I hit college. They walked away from the negotiating table and, the economic climate of the 8th grade being what it was at the time, another partner wasn't found before the Typhoon was discontinued.
Roy El-Rayes, however, has succeeded where 12-year-old me failed, and he did it by using the sort of professionalism that only a PowerPoint presentation can provide, along with some humor and bold-faced flattery.

GM sweetens military discount for Buick, Chevy and GMC

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 13:02:00 EST

American servicemen and women interested in a new vehicle from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC now have a bit more incentive to head down to their local dealer, as General Motors has announced plans to improve its military discount program.
The new GM Military Discount Program offers eligible consumers a new Chevy, Buick or GMC at invoice pricing, which in some cases can take very large chunks out of a car's retail price. When factored in with other incentives, most of which are available with the Military Discount, the bargains are thick on the ground for members of the US armed forces.
GM's Retail Sales and Marketing Support general manager, Chuck Thomson, said, "GM has long supported the military and military families, and we hope this simplified and enhanced discount will show our appreciation for their service and help make it easier for them to own one of our great new vehicles." The program is open to all active duty and reserve members in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard, as well as veterans that have been out of the service for less than a year. Military retirees and their spouses are also eligible for the discount.

2015 Chevy Tahoe gets Police Patrol Vehicle treatment

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:29:00 EST

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.
