The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
IMHO, the deal of the show was this 56 150 2 dr. sedan. No rust. A rebuildable 350 with a rebuidable turbo 400. Electric wiper motor. $3600.
The 55 2 door wagon had serious damage to the header above the windshield and will require a highly qualified bodyman to fix the roof so it would look right and hold a windshield. The rest of it was bent and/or rusted. $3500.
The $19,000 55 was a 55 footer. At 20 feet, you could see the sanding scratches under the base coat. Drips, sanding marks, blistering.
Most of the 57 Chevies that showed up were 4 doors. I don't have much interest in 4 doors, so I didn't photograph any.
The Nomad didn't have a price. I usually don't pay attention to un-priced cars. But this one was nice. And I saw it leave in an enclosed trailer, so I assume it sold.
The only other 57 2 door I found today. A 150 that didn't have a clean panel on it. There were dents in the header above the windshield. May or may not have to require extensive repair to get a windshield in it. $2500.
IMHO, the 56 Buick at $3650 was a better deal.
Let's start off with the "dare to be different" group.
1978 Gremlin X - 258 with a factory 4 speed. I think it was a good deal at $3000.
1964 (I think - had to go off the tail light casting) Corvair Monza - $2500 OBO
This Taxi even had a coin changer (look close at the running board)! 1924 Durant Star. Wooden spokes. $8500.
Got the fenders, core support, and valance bolted on the car. Spent most of the afternoon on Saturday putting the hood together. The guy I bought it from disassembled it for shipping. Wasn't sure whether the hood would win or me. Finally got it together and on. Now I have to measure and plan how to get the radiator in.
Now that the MII hats are in their final resting place, the inner panels had to be cut to clear the new front suspension. I did the passenger side first. When I finished, I realized I could have been a bit more surgical. The driver's side went quicker and I think it is cleaner. When I finish them, they will look the same but the passenger side will probably take more work. This all leads up to the modification of the core support so the radiator and engine will clear each other.
