Looking for a 1957 Safari!

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

As some of you know, I have had 14 55 to 57 Nomads over the years.  Yes, they are heavier than other Chevys but I love the look.  Well, the time has come for me to do a 1957 Safari.  I am looking for a decent car with little to no rust if possible.  Engine and transmission are not important to me.  It needs to roll and be mostly complete.  Please email me if you know where one can be found.  As always, thanks!  LK  3-20-2013

Repro News! 64 Tach Bracket, 66 2+2 Quarter Emblems (soon!) and 63-64 Quarter Panel Repair Sections are here!

Now here!  1964 Full Size Tachometer Mounting Bracket. Univex Part #9774565, done as original in Chrome Plated Die Cast. The first run will be limited to 50 pieces ONLY. Cost is $119.95 each plus $6.80 USPS Priority Mail in the US only. World-wide at cost. It’s first-come-first-served. Sorry for the excessive cost however our cost has risen FOUR times since trying to start this project. As for now, none will be sold to other vendors.  We accept credit cards by phone and checks by mail payable to UPDATE: The tach brackets are here and are going fast!

We are also in the process of doing 1966 2+2 Quarter Panel Emblems. Thanks to my good friend Bob Munson of Florida for the use of his emblem to use as a pattern. These will also be die cast, chrome plated and painted correctly as originals. Cost will be $119.95 each or $229.95 a pair, plus $6.80 USPS Priority Mail in the US only. World-wide at cost. As with the tach brackets, we will only be doing a run of 50 (25 car sets). Again, first-come, first served.

We have in stock NOW, correct 1963-64 Lower Rear Quarters (Catalina-Grand Prix) made from my NOS 1964 Quarter Panels. These run about 3″ above the wheel well opening and run from front to rear. Bonnevilles and Star Chiefs will need 2″ of metal added at the rear. These are priced at $189.00 per side plus freight.  Please note that the UPS freight charges are kinda high as these devils are REALLY long!
