Parking Lot Spotlight – 1957 Chevy
Another classic spotted in my local supermarket (does anyone actually use the word ‘supermarket” any more?).
This 1957 Chevy has all the chrome you might want. It appears to have fairly new paint. I love the wrap around windows and the exhaust exiting the rear bumper. (If I could figure out how to make that happen with my Mustang I would!!)
Of course I couldn’t hang around in the parking lot waiting for the owner, but would have loved to see the engine compartment.
You can tell the ’57′s a mile away.
Love bumper chrome and the wrap around windshield. Oh…that’s my grocery cart in the background.
Paint looked flawless on this car. Not labeled as a Bel Air or Impala and clearly not a ‘plan jane’ One Fifty.
Love the exhaust exit location on these cars!!
Chevy‘s standard engine for these cars was the 6 cylinder. The V8′s were considered a separate series and not an option. Chevy produced over 1.5 million cars in 1957, second only to Ford.
Have a really cool parking lot find? Drop me a note and we get it posted up.
Thanks for reading.
