Height, weight, length for '57 Chevy pu

Can anyone give me the overall length, height (street rod height) and weight for a '57 Chevy pickup?
I'm looking at one on eBay and I need to find out if it will fit into my garage.
Thanks

Wouldn't the best person to ask be the guy selling it? I have to tell you, there is a hell of a difference in the height from on to another! You could be looking at two trucks on ebay that are a foot different in height! It depends on everything from tires used, to suspension to body mods.

Just message the people thru ebay on the trucks you are interested in.

I can measure my '55 today, it's a 4x4/shortbed. But like RODDER18 said, what are the demensions of your garage?

The garage is 21x22 feet. (double stall). I did see a '57 at a car show and I walked off 17 feet. It should fit. The height was approximately 6' (it should fit under the lift).
Now the weight...... Any ideas???? Would you estimate a short box to be under 3300#'s?
Thanks

I would say around 3500, that is what my 48 weighs I would assume the 55-59 to be pretty close.

That is a neat site, however I see nothing on the 56 Truck. The index says "Cars and trucks" but I find no "truck" info other than sedan delivery.

1956 diamensions

Sorry for the lack of information on the 1957 truck. I did find some sheets on a 1956 model. Maybe these will help some.

Good Luck.
