Man that is a gutsy car to parallel park! I hope that thing is fast, because it looks like it could really be packin some heat. I love the face on it, but I think that rear angle profile is the BEST. What a slope and great license plate.

This thing passed me recently while I was shooting something, and I gave the driver a big thumbs up. The wave of hot rod gas fumes were mad nostalgic.

Seeing these pics and the positive comments makes my whole month.

It's a '57 but has the earlier '56 grille in place.

I've owned it for 15 years. Paid $600 to drag it out from under a Maple tree where it had sat without wheels for several years. Welded in new floors, took out the dents, painted it, installed new bushings, shocks and swaybars; replaced the 1.6l engine with a 2.1, and replaced the 3 speed with a 4 speed 'box. Removed the 4.56 rear and installed a 4.10. Just got the new interior in it about the time these pics were taken.

Wheels are stock 15s widened to 6". The front is lowered a bit, rear is stock height.

It's an un-garaged year 'round daily driver. Love this car. Really great to see it on this excellent site. Thanks.
