I spent the morning at Cars and Coffee on Saturday and spoke with a gentleman who owns a ’57. He explained the retractable folding top that hides behind the seats. A feature pulled from Jaguars of the day that takes an extra step to close and hide but once done it disappears. Side draft SU carburetors.
Find it for sale on Ann Arbor Craigslist.
“Great restoration project car. Very little rust on this chassis, none on any fender. Aluminum doors, hood and trunk are excellent. Wire wheels. Drivetrain condition is unknown. The odometer reads 16430 so you might put a battery in it and fire it up. This is a barn find, disassembled years ago, but appears to be all there and in good condition for a 54 year old.”
