Once again, one last time, I have been tempted into another 57.
My progress on the coupe has virtually stopped for the past year while I worked on a smaller project in a 4 door and awaited the stars to align to complete the metal work. Given that, I was not looking for another car but was picking up a part here and there. After buying one such part, I had to ask, "do you have any other 57 parts for sale?". I was surprised to learn that not only were there many more parts available, but a Roadmaster convertible as well.
The car was partially disassembled, there was no title, most of interior was missing, unknown other pieces were missing, and the parts that were not missing were awash is numerous other parts. Since it would have been time-consuming and impractical to quickly find all of the parts that belonged to the car, I bought everything. As of now, I have sold off many of the extra parts already to make space and to bring my cost of the car down and free up funding for the parts I'd have to acquire.
I couldn't pass the car up because it is pretty solid actually, and a great color of Antique Ivory with a Red interior. Much of the original paint is still visible with exception of where a prior owner installed new rocker panels, and parts on upper body where there appears to have been a partial repaint with house paint at one time that is flaking off.
The trunk lid is in poor condition but it's there, and an extra in much better condition came with the car.
