OK - another multi -part question:

Which body styles were the most expensive in a '57 Chev? I am looking for 3 body styles here, not model

What was the least expensive?

Trivia

Sorry folks- my computer had a bit of a "whoopsie" about a half hour after I posted the question, so I have been out of touch for a couple of days

So far no-one has gotten the entire list of "most expensive body styles" right, but nearly everyone has been at least partly right.

trivia

Sorry - computer "went away again" and I said "oh gosh, golly, drat" (and other words to that general effect. (Hint: do not let the GEEK SQUAD at Best Buy get anywhere your computers!)

This is my first post on my BRAND NEW machine (that I am still setting up!)

What I was looking for is: the 3 most expensive models of '57 Chev: Convertible (available only in Bel Air trim), Nomad (again only avail in Bel Air trim) and the Sport Sedan - AKA 4 dr HT, which was avail in both Bel Air and 210 trim levels

Cheapest was, as several have suggested, the basic 3 pass 2 dr sedan in 150 trim - it was SO low priced that a back seat was an option!

To those who suggested the Tupperware model (Corvette), my apologies - I am not actually sure WHERE the 'Vette fit in the price scale

Since it has been 100% my fault that I did not get back on with responses in a timely manner, I'll let the moderators decide who should "go next" with a question.

I thought I would jump in and get this thing going. This thread is too much fun, can't let it sit here.

There is one year that you could get a 396 in a Corvette, what year was it?
