While this isn't exactly a barn find, this 1957 Chevy Bel Air is looks abondoned and has definitely seen better days. I can imagine lots of different ways that I would love to restore this classic Chevrolet. If this looks like the perfect project for you, you can buy it.

The body, glass, chrome, and trim appear to be in pretty good shape.

This side looks a little rougher but still very salvagable. It's hard to tell if that is just surface rust on that rear fender or more serious damage. But - everything still looks very intact.

I was pleasantly surprised to see an engine still in the car, let alone a V8. Apparently it's a small block 400 with a turbo 350 transmission.
