Rusty 1957 Chevy Project Car Revealed! Finnegan's Garage Ep.141

Way back in December I surprised David Newbern by gifting him a car he's always wanted-- a 1957 Chevy two-door. It's rough, but a good foundation for a race car build since we'd probably through away a lot of the heavy metal anyway. This video is all about the day I revealed the car to him.

I've got 3 55 Chevys, one hard top and two sedans. I had the hard top painted really nice about 10 years ago and haven't touched it while I continue to love and upgrade the ratty 210 post. It's something about those rusty ratty jalopies that only those who love them can understand. In the mid 60's when I was a child, you could buy these things for 50-100 bucks all day long. Some older teens that lived down the road were doing this, buying clapped out 55-57's, immediately cutting a hole in the floor for a shifter and of course loud or no pipes. Remember, if it doesn't make babies cry or women faint, you ain't doing it right. Long live the 55-57 Chevy, THE American hot rod.

It's easier to get parts for a 1957 Chevy than it is for say.....a 1957 Ford, or a 1957 Dodge.........

Awesome to see Finnegan able to help a friend get a car. Even more awesome was Dave's response. The shock, and it looked like he was holding back tears. So rad.

In 1976 I bought my wife a 1 owner 1956 Belaire deluxe 4 door from some lot in Lompoc Ca. in perfect shape with less than 30k miles. We drove the hell outa it and one night driving thru Utah about 2 in the morning with a kid ,dog and all we owned, came up on someone hauling two 50's chevies. We pulled up beside and drove for a while and then accelerated into the night. Paid 750 bucks for it, drove it for a couple of years and sold it for 750 bucks to pay tuition. You could see the gas gauge drop like a rock on the interstate. no shit!

It's a nice 57 Sedan delivery, what this means is you need 1956/1955 side trim, not 1957 RS10/Etc side trim. I bet those doors will clear right up with the sand blaster or better yet chemical dip. Lots of surface rust, but take that off and see what you have left... On the doors, even if the surfaces don't clean up, the cores could be sheathed.
