Thread: 1957 4 door belvedere "ALICE"

  1. #1

    1957 4 door belvedere "ALICE"

    Found this I'm my town of austin texas. I couldn't pass it up. I originally wanted it for parts but it is so complete I'd feel bad to tear it apart. V8 (still trying to figure if 301 or 318) push button auto. Car rolls great (thank god). I'll take better pics when she is off the trailer!!

    Oh,yeah, 800.00 bucks! But no title...

    Build it yourself, then at least you know it will be right.

    Wow! That's a score right there! What is the dealer emblem on the rear?

    She looks in great shape! Those mirrors have to go, however...
    Excellent find.

    Alice is a great looking car. You should be called Mr. Lucky!!!

    It's from Sheriden Wisconsin? That's what the dealer tag says. What's up with all these,northern cars in Texas? Haha.

    I'm super excited to leave it stock and drive the hell out of it.

    Step one... get the 301 v8 to turn over...

    I talked with you on Face Book a couple of days back. You had asked the question about the original color Marine Blue poly and how it might pop with white.....

    Well, it took years to achieve that patina.....you may as well enjoy it while it's the height of fashion.

    I can't believe it's been months since I have posted in here! Well I have been working on Alice off and on. The 301 motor was locked up. An animal lived in the pistons via the exhaust and just clogged it all up.

    I drove to little rock Arkansas to see forward look Dorsey Williams and for 200.00 I picked up a 1960 318 motor. It seems to have low compression but hopefully enough to run decent.

    The interior of Alice kinda stinks... literally. So I started on new door panels and pulling the seats will be next...

    Also dropped of both ignition locks from my 58 and this 57 to get keys made. Locksmith seems to be having trouble getting blanks but hopefully he will figure it out..


    Ok. Pics time!Click image for larger version.

    I was wondering how the car was coming, Paul or should I say 'Lucky'. Thanks again for bringing down those pieces from Dorsey's place in AR. Nice work on the panels! I am still looking for some 1958 4 door Belvedere door panels... Marc.

    That door panel looks great, Paul!

    The engine makes me green with envy!

    Nice progress, glad Alice is on her way back to the streets. Thanks for posting!

    Good to see you back on the forum and still moving forward on Alice. Sharp looking door panel.

  15. #15
    Thanks! I'm trying to put her back on the road as affordable as possible... that blue material was only 6.00 a square yard for 7 yards so I couldn't pass it up.

    That white however.. 21.00 a yard.. need to find more clearance vinyl. Haha

    Welp... I totally had the intention of putting the 318 motor back in today.... but as I started cleaning out the interior (it smelled aweful) I ended up just going to town on the inside of the car... versus the engine bay, haha.

    The dash had some pad on it all burned up and turned it into basically glue (a friggin mess) so I cleaned it up and padded it with 1/4 foam and laid blue vinyl on it.

    Pull the rest of the interior and vacuumed the floor. Also removed broken door glass so I can get an estimate for a new one.

    Enjoy pics!

    Looks good! Are you going to leave in the shoulder seat belts?
