VanDerBrink Auctions has a bunch of cool cars and parts that we'd like to get our hands on in its July 16 auction in Commerce City, Col. The auction will feature a "barn find" collection of Chevrolet cars and parts, including a lot of "Tri-Five stuff" and there quite a few vehicles that collectors will be drooling over.
One that really grabbed our attention is this original, unmolested 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air station wagon.
According to the listing, "this was bought new and had only one owner. Current owner is 2nd owner. The car does not run, but clean. Turquoise and white in color...There is a little rust starting to bubble on lower quarter. Bel Air trim. V-8 and automatic transmission. 3,669 showing on the odometer. Can not confirm mileage, may be over. It was stored inside. It has [hanging] AC. The interior is matching turquoise and bench seats. Two rows. Tissue box, manual windows and locks. Does not run. Hubcaps and white walls."
There are a lot of Tri-Five Chevy collectors and fans out there, and one of them is sure to get their hands on this baby and give it the restoration it deserves. We'll bet a steak dinner that in a few years this hauler is shining like new and the jewel of somebody's collection.
