Back when I had my 64 Vette coupe I had planned for a while to put a 401 in it. I was thinking about making it a factory Buick model, putting Buick emblems and really doing it well with Riviera aluminum wheel covers that look like the Corvette knock offs, I had a set, had a motor that would bolt in, damn that would have been funny.

The Riv and the Vette were designed by the same guy, what the heck?

Riv wheel covers...They were cast aluminum and literally bolted to the steel wheel with studs coming off the rear going thru the wheel. The center cap came off to gain access to the lug nuts.



And of course the Corvette knock offs.



Damn that would have been fun!

Nothing wrong with the Ford in there as a cruiser. He's obviously not concerned about going FAST.....

I believe that some '57 Chev 150's did not have any rear window winder mechanisms - the 150 was SO basic that the rear seat was an option! So it may not be ONLY "Black Widows" that had no winder mechanism. not 100% sure, but......

I had a 150 business coupe; the cheapest model made, and it had roll up rear side windows. They didn't go fully down, but they did go a ways down. However the 150 "utility" model did have fixed rear windows from the factory.
My '63 Falcon's rear windows don't even go half way down! Talk about a crumby design!

Shoebox stripper models didn't even have a fuse box, just a couple inline fuses. Hell, my '80 Malibu wagon's rear windows don't even go down! The '09 Malibu doesn't have a key lock in the trunk.

The picture you posted is a 1955-57 Chevy David. The square access panel, and dip in the window opening are both indicative of a'55-'57 Chevy.

The picture of the dash area is not consistent with that of a 57 Chevy, Black Widow or any other variation. The rear roof line looks wrong also.

Hadn't seen any pictures beyond what David posted, but considering the pic you just posted says, "Property of 57chevy black widow" I'd guess it's a '57 Chevy. It may not be consistent with a '57, but I can see signs around the instrument cluster area of cutting and modification, so I'm guessing it's not in stock configuration anymore.
The pic you posted also shows me it's not '55-'56, as they had a hump on top at the right side of the dash. Here's a stock '57 dash:


Looks pretty darn close to what is posted before.
