1957 Chevy Convertible For $6,500!

1957 Chevrolet Convertible

I got pretty excited when I first spotted this Chevrolet. I thought, wow – a 1957 Convertible for only $6,500! I was ready to click the Buy-it-Now button when I realized that something wasn’t right here. See that extra seem behind the front door? Well, it turns out that this is actually a four-door that someone chopped the roof off of and welded the rear doors shut. I suppose that if you have been lusting after the looks of a drop-top ’57, but can’t afford the price tag, this could be your next best option. I’d be worried about the structural integrity of the body, but the seller claims that it does run and drive well. It’s located in Adolphus, Kentucky and is listed here on eBay for $6,500 or best offer. What do you think? Could this fulfill your ’57 fantasy?

    The civil authorities in Adolphus need to check their water supply — looks like a load of some really bad psycho-active drug got mixed in. This must be what happens after too many generations of cousins marrying cousins.

    And it’s a 6 cylinder. I think the guy put an extra zero on the price. Why is this featured???

    I think they meant $650.00 for it.

    This may have been a nice 4 door hardtop until the butchering. This is a new way to ruin a desirable car.

    $500 Parts Car after his artistic hack job, it was worth what he’s asking before he drank that Bong Water and was given access to tools.

    Seller mentions he’s working to source a KY title. For the asking price, he should include some KY Jelly as well!

    Those cars need a roof to keep the bodies integrity .

      Yep. Never Drink From A Bottle That Has No Label. You might wake up with a splitting headache in a pool of drool and rust flakes, tangled in the air line of your Harbor Freight air shear, weeping softly over something like this.

    If cheap enough reinforce the frame and just drive it
    …maybe open up those back doors and have a phaeton.. cars are for fun!

    Not a convertible, since it doesn’t convert to anything. But since the hack job’s already done, why not have some cheap trashy fun with it? Clean it up, Earl Scheib paint, and drive it to the beach all summer long.

    I believe the gent that transformed this car is named Morris Ronald. Mo-Ron for short.

    This would be a great parade car. Here in the New Orleans area we have lots of parades–not just Mardi Gras, but St. Patrick’s Day and all kinds of little local parades through the year. A lot of people have modified vehicles to participate in these parades, and the rest of the time they sit in the shed since they’re not otherwise street legal. Since this poor car has already had the hack job inflicted on it, it would be good candidate for the purpose. I like the idea of unwelding the rear doors to make a phaeton out of it.
    But if you think that I thought it was a good idea to do this in the first place, no way. I’m just trying to make lemonade out of an extremely sour lemon.

    he’ll never get the $6500, its not worth that in parts, agree $650 is probably more realistic.

      No. It’s not. It’s ok to change something that was once a “dime a dozen” and shake-up your lame “dime a dozen” trailer queen cruise night

    I have a 57 Chevrolet Belair Convertible with a Canadian built fiberglass body, steel front clip and steel trunk lid for $12,500. It is missing the engine, trans and interior, but has the X frame
