1957 Chevrolet 150 2 Door Station Wagon 1957 would be the last year for the tri-five era, but in most people\'s minds the best as far as design and styling. It has the lineup of the models ranging in price and options from the 150 which was the basic car, to the 210 which gave us some upgrades, to the top of the line Bel Air, which was the loaded version. For consignment, a 150 version of a tri five wagon. This original model came from the factory with 2 doors, a rear gate, and a back bench for extra passengers. The car was mainly built for the suburban family to get around or the sole proprietor to carry out their trades with the use of this car to haul, store, and shuttle to various job sites. That is where it ends for the utilitarian 150 and our consignment takes over with numerous mods, upgrades and customizations literally to the nines, making it even better than the top of line Nomad in several more modern ways. READ ON! Exterior All beautiful straight steel panels, with well minded gaps cover the now deep green painted end of the pool exterior of this car. The visored headlights, gold grille side mounted rubber tipped Dagmars, wrap around grille, and lower grounding bumper are the essential for the 57 year. Also the hood embedded rockets with their dip down in the hood are another nice 50\'s futuristic touch. All this chrome, brite-work, trim and badging is excellent, having been removed and polished to a sparkling shine. The front wrap around windshield is trimmed with shiny chrome as are the windows, and rear wrap around the corner side glass has a very beautiful rake rearward from the side view. This in conjunction with the slowly descending spear and stainless steel ribbed panel on the rear quarter are making up the look for the iconic 57 models. Large fins protrude way past the rear roofline and house the vertical tail edge trimmings, crescent moon shaped tail lights and rear backup light ovals firmly implanted within the rear bumper below. Vertical ribs adorn the rear tailgate and above is a crank down rear glass within a working up and down tailgate. Fins were a big thing in this era and these take the cake with a protrusion of at least another foot of bodywork past the tailgate. Don\'t pierce yourself when loading that 4x8 sheet of plywood or 5 gallon buckets of paint inside! 15-inch Centerline drag wheels are on all 4 corners and all wrapped with 215/70R15\'s in front, and larger 275/60R15\'s on back all fun black-wall form. Interior Custom is the word bird, for this car as the confines of the doors which sport black horizontal ribbed vinyl panels and chromed actuator and cranks is a brand new interior. It has a 10 point roll cage with swing-out side bars for easy access to the front modern buckets with large bolsters and stitched tuck and roll inserts. Racing bets will keep you secure during the boost to hyperdrive. The dash retains its original square bump up from the factory 57 look, however is now all black and sports more modern gauges flanking the 50\'s styled round large speedo. Plenty of extra gauges are peppering the remainder of the dash now set up to monitor the healthy mill upfront, (more on the in a few, stay tuned...), and on the dash to is a huge tachometer with a shift light imbedded within its black and silver round exterior bezel. Vintage AC and heat are installed, and a gold BelAir badge is next to a rectangular 50\'s styled clock. All the dash front is full metal jacket black. For the back, a simple bench/bucket arrangement is in and it will be a quest through the roll cage to get to it! Jumper styled seats are only as a second thought back here. For the remainder of the storage bed area, all is nice, clean, and with black short pile carpeting. A Hurst shifter sits on the hump and black carpeting floods the floors where the chairs are. The headliner above is nice and tight and has back metal ribs in the seams to ensure it stays that way. Drivetr
