I've had this car for a while and have just enjoyed driving the hell out of it. Drove it from SF to Austin
two years ago. Hell of a trip. It has a SBC 350 in it that needs to get pulled soon. I've redone all the front
steering linkage as most of it was bent, missing bushings etc. The front, since the two pics below, has been dropped
2 inches and I had new leaf springs made with 3 inches of drop.

I ripped out the headliner to find rust-bestos and have since ground/sanded the interior roof

Here is a better view of the current stance on the way to Texas. Next step is to deal with all the rust/rot
in the usual Chevy places.

Cool '57! I also have a '57 wagon but it's not even close to being drivable.
Is that a 6 passenger or a 9 passenger?

It's a six passenger, but we got 14 in it one night in Austin. :pieface:
