1957 CHEVY 1/2 Ton Pickup
A Nice Survivor of its Era
Vin Body tag matches title
This truck is a good true survivor which sits straight and looks right. It even has its original wiring that is NOT all butchered. A great canidate for a complete restore or drive it now like it is.
This has an Original 235 6-cylinder motor (not 1957) that is a few years newer. However, if you are looking for the original motor that came out of this truck I do have it available. (see notes below on Original motor)
3-Speed transmission with overdrive. Shifts good. (see notes on transmission below)
This is not a shortbox or a longbox. It is the in-between that most talk about that is used for the Cameo conversions. 48x90 on the interior.
New Doug fir wood in bed.
Glass is all new or good except the wing windows that have some bubbling.
Body looks like someone has done some restoration on it years earlier. Hood has some bondo on it. Any body work that was loose I removed the bondo. . Some rust in typical places.
Doors need adjusting as they sag some. I think they need new hindge pins.
New Rebuilt seat
Windshield wipers work.
All lights work.
Original gauges work except there is a hole in oil sending line, so it needs replaced.
New fuel tank and sending unit
New rebuilt carburator
Fresh tune up with new points, rotor, condenser, cap, wires and plugs.
New master cylinder. Brakes are a little soft. I think the wheel cylinders should be replaced eventually.
Needs heater core.
I also have the Original Motor - Needs rebuilt, good rebuilder with no ridge on cylinders, crank looks good, bearings look good, needs head gasket, rings are ceased from not being started in a lot of years.
Transmission- It is all there including the original wiring except theres a linkage that goes from the accelator petal to the transmission that is missing. Should not be hard to find.
Actual mileage unknown on vehicle.This vehicle runs awesome!
