1957 CHEVY 150 HANDYMAN WAGONThis is a 1957 Chevrolet 150 Handyman Wagon. I bought this wagon years ago to do a frame-off restoration. Just haven't had the time or surplus cash to restore it. Last year some genius decided to use my car as scaffolding, which caused these huge dents in the roof. The car is pretty complete. There is a spare front fender and stainless/trim in the cargo area.
RAREST OF THE RARE!!!
The car is not "all-original". It originally came with a 6-cylinder and 3 on the tree, but now has a 327 V8 with a Muncie 4-speed. It does run and can be moved around to get it on a trailer. It does need a battery, but I will provide a 24-series battery once it sells and make sure it runs before you receive it. It will need floor pans and spare tire area pan. According to my paint/body person, who has been doing restorations for 30+ years, the roof is repairable. There is rust on the gutter line as shown in the pictures. Most of the dents from the "workers" can probably be pushed back out. There is some damage to one of the front fenders, but as I said above, there is a replacement fender in the cargo area. Hinges are good. Most of the chrome will need re-plating.
The car comes with a Vermont Certificate of Registration. Vermont does not title cars older than 15 years, so the registration should be sufficient to transfer the car in any state.
Local pickup only. Buyer to arrange shipping. Do not bid unless you intend to buy!!!
DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THE RAREST 1957 CHEVY!!! THERE WERE LESS OF THESE PRODUCED THAN THE CONVERTIBLES AND FAR LESS HAVE SURVIVED!!! THEY ARE VERY HARD TO FIND UNRESTORED!!!

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
Wed, 06 Nov 2013 13:00:00 EST
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.
We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a menacing car it calls the Pure Vision Design TT Camaro. Based on a 1972 model, this car shares the Martini Mustang's clean styling and obsession with details.

Unlike the Mustang, which draws its power from a mid-60s Lotus-Ford Indycar engine, the "TT" in this Camaro's name implies something far more potent. The Nelson Racing Engines 427-cubic-inch V8 has been fitted with a pair of turbochargers, with a claimed output of 1,400 horsepower. That's almost 1,000 more than the Martini Mustang.
A six-speed Magnum transmission dispatches that power to the ground, while Pirelli PZero tires are tasked with (somehow) trying to grip the road. Baer brakes hide behind those HRE rims, while JRI coilovers and HyperTech springs bless the Camaro with some degree of competency in the bends.
American servicemen and women interested in a new vehicle from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC now have a bit more incentive to head down to their local dealer, as General Motors has announced plans to improve its military discount program.
The new GM Military Discount Program offers eligible consumers a new Chevy, Buick or GMC at invoice pricing, which in some cases can take very large chunks out of a car's retail price. When factored in with other incentives, most of which are available with the Military Discount, the bargains are thick on the ground for members of the US armed forces.
GM's Retail Sales and Marketing Support general manager, Chuck Thomson, said, "GM has long supported the military and military families, and we hope this simplified and enhanced discount will show our appreciation for their service and help make it easier for them to own one of our great new vehicles." The program is open to all active duty and reserve members in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard, as well as veterans that have been out of the service for less than a year. Military retirees and their spouses are also eligible for the discount.
