Not for the faint of heart. Very deep pockets needed to bring this one back, and another car. It amazes me that people can let a beautiful car sit and deteriorate for many years, and then want some one to make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
I'm sure that anybody who undertakes this project would have much more in it than it would be worth.
That having been said, I have seen many beautiful restorations that people are buried in. It all depends on how bad someone wants a particular car.
I wish whomever buys it the best of luck!

One more case of easer to take apart the put back together. The things you need for patterns are missing. But sounds like a good body. The front bumper is worth the starting bid.

Default Can't even imagine....

When someone lists a car and states the front seat was thrown out with other parts during the attempted resto. it makes one cringe at the results. Real reason(?): Junkyards in the old days sold anything they could easily remove.

It is indeed one of 1010. If it were a Imperial Cadillac Series 75 Sedan it would be one of 890 in 1957. We are continually amazed here the amount of money some people spend on restorations. Sometimes, 100k on a car worth $35,000. I always write-it-off to a 'personal attachment'. Book value (Jan.'17)on his one is $30,700 in mint condition. Slightly more if it had a documented history of a famous owner. Some of my happiest customers are folks who have restored such a car ONCE. Come in and buy a finished car they can drive today for way less. 'Barnyard Finds' are popular today...can't figure why?- unless the resto. is only 'do-able' a hundred dollars at a time.

Not a bad deal, if you happen to own a complete '57 Series 75 sedan with a lot of rust issues!

It is sad to see one tore down and left in this condition, but who knows what this car's history is. It may have served as a parts car for yet another Series 75!
