Cool? Yes, No? Thoughts on styling.

To my untrained eyes, it looks like too many eras/cars were tacked together and they just didn't "flow."

Different, certainly. Good, not at all. Conception thru execution. Speaking of execution maybe, no certainly, it should be knocked in the head.

A lot of work went into it but it needs the '57 roofline.

I recently saw a Nice 57 2 door sedan, non original, but generally era correct v8. Ready to go, $22k.  Decent looker in red and white, stock.   Here in CT.

 

I know which one I would choose.  😉

I saw this car a few months ago at a local car show in Ocala, not my style but it looked better in person.

I got it one piece at a time, and it didn’t cost me a dime....

^This^  The modification appears well done and the styling isn't horrible, but a more 57-ish roof looks better:

That craigslist car is either good for '78 El Caminos or bad for  '57 Chevies...I can't decide which. I shouldn't talk, I'm the one who posted a T-Bird /Vista Cruiser hybrid a while back and even liked it. I think Tri-Five Chevies would've made good El Caminos and could've been done up to look as good as '57 and '58 Rancheros, but joining together two radically different automotive styling eras - mid 1950's and late 1970's - and making it work is difficult. The builder was inventive and skilled, though.

Not my cup of tea but there is no doubt whoever assembled it has some skills.

Nice workmanship, but IMHO, a swing and a miss.

Styling is not one of them.

I have to ask "Why?"  

 

A ton of work where the seller will NEVER recoup his time and cost of materials.

I LIKE the color...

Its not difficult to explain why. It's painted the iconic 1957 Chevrolet color combination of Tropical Turquoise/India Ivory.
