    Had this one ready for the annual AACA Bug Tussle Trek but the old radiator sprung a leak so maybe next year. Original 57 235 with a 3sp overdrive trans, radial tires and front disc brakes makes it a left lane cruiser.

    That sure is a nice one, Evan.
    All the stuff you show us, from your shop is top notch.
    Makes me think about what it would have looked like to walk around a Chevy dealer's lot, in 1957.

    Steve.

    Looks great! May I ask, what paint do you use for the manifold grey? Mine needs a little touchup spot and the man that built it is no longer living so I'm not sure what he used. But it appears to be the exact shade of grey as yours.

    Garrison,
    The owner wanted to get involved so after we cleaned the engine/trans/ rear he did the color selection and painting. Will try to remember to ask the color next time he comes by.
