This unique auto is one of two 57 Chevys known to exist with these customized details.
I have owned this auto for the past nine years and just recently discovered that this is a copy of another one owned By Dave Jenkins of Ypsilanti, Michigan,
Apparently, my Chevy was built to copy Dave Jenkins. It has won numerous trophies in car shows in the Illinois area.
Some of the special details on this car are:
Majestic red paint with silver scallops and pin stripeing
Rolled and Pleated interior and trunk
AM – FM Radio and tape player
350 crate motor
White wall tires
Customized fender skirts
Shaved hood, doors and trunk
Tachometer and gauges
57 Buick Grill
350 Turbo transmission with floor shift
Lowered three inches
Keyless door and trunk entry
Under dash air conditioning
Fake side exhaust pipes and spotlights
The man who previously owned this car purchased it in Illinois on January 30, 2001. He did some customizing there then more in the Corpus Christi area after moving south. He became ill and after his death, his wife traded it to a car dealer in Corpus Christi. I acquired it in September 2005 and have garaged it at my home. It is driven only on weekends during good weather. Because of this and due to my age, I have decided to put it on the market for sale.
