No bolt was left un-turned in this build. This 57 Chevy was owned and restored by an Auto Tech teacher with 45 years of experience. He had owned this car since 1976 and took the time to restore it back in 2006. The Car was painted by a former student of his who became a professional painter with McLaughlin Auto Body in Indiana. The interior was done by Clever Creations, another regionally well knowns shop. Since the car was finished, there have been less than 800 miles put on the restoration.
