1957 Chevrolet 210 2-Door

 

Owner: Mike Lenci, Bellevue, WA 
Details:

Car was purchased in 1997 as a basket case. It sat for 3 months while I contemplated dropping the whole idea. I finally pulled off the body and went ahead. Originally I was going to do a simple stock restoration but found that there were so many missing parts that it would not be practical. So the Street Rod theme took over. Five years later the car was drivable. It has been in several car shows and has received it’s share of awards including “Class winner” and “Outstanding Interior” in “Street Machine” division  at the 2003 Seattle Roadster Show. Now that this car seems to be “finished” I want to move on to another.
