One of just 1.5 million '57 Chevrolets built.
The One-Fifty was the lowest of three 1957 Chevrolet trim levels, with the Two-Ten and Bel Air the more prestigious models.
This one has spent at least a few decades sitting outdoors.
It’s not particularly rusty, but the interior has been nuked hard. Note the three-on-the-tree manual transmission column shifter.
The “Blue Flame” straight-six engine displaced 235 cubic inches (3.9 liters) and made 140 gross horsepower. Good luck finding a restored ’57 Chevy that doesn’t have a V8 today!
Even the very cheapest 1957 Chevrolets got these cool-looking hood ornaments.
Most American drivers had cars like this in the middle 1950s: straight-six engine, three-on-the-tree manual, and a couch-like bench seat in front.
