Forgotten 1957 Chevy

The 1957 Chevrolet 150 is a classic car model produced by Chevrolet in 1957. This model is part of the Chevrolet Tri-Five series, which includes the 1955, 1956, and 1957 models. The Tri-Five series is highly regarded among car enthusiasts and collectors for its iconic design and cultural significance. The 1957 Chevrolet 150 was available in various body styles, including a 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan, 2-door handyman wagon, 2-door utility sedan, and 2-door business coupe.

In today's very interesting episode you will see a 1957 Chevrolet Model 150 running after sitting for over 30 years. This car was to be restored in New York in 1987 with new paint, new interior and new whitewall tires. Then it was sold in 1988 and the new owner simply drove it home and left it in the garage for 2-3 years. Then a new copper fuel line was made to the carburetor and taken to an open pit, where it was cleaned with compressed air from sand and dirt in the frame and chassis and sprayed with a mixture of white spirit from below.

The new carpet was glued to the floor, and underneath there were rust holes covered with slabs and sheets of melted asphalt made by the person who was restoring and selling it. The Chevrolet looked good, but was also considered a project car and was not roadworthy, so it was decided to leave it for later, then body wax was applied to the chrome and a thin coat of oil was applied to the paint. It hasn't had a license plate in over 35 years and hasn't been washed or run since, the only maintenance being filling the tires with air just a few times. Believe it or not! But it's time to see what needs to be done to get it working again! Let's see if this vintage car will drive again.
