Says it's a 57, but the lower part of the grille looks like a 58. Might just be a 57 with a 58 grille. Not stock under the hood, but he kept the pushbutton and has a 413 with dual exhaust. Has the bumper wings and AC. Wish he had  a pic from under the hood.

If that's a 57, they did a thorough conversion!

I notice even the rear view mirror is correct 58, the title must be wrong, since the whole dash would have to be changed. I would be very careful of the paper work on this car.

The dash bezel looks to be a 57 with little dots and not the 58 with the star pattern. Although when I do enlarge the photo on the mac, it does start to loose a little definition...

Wonder if that's a Superbee under the cover in photo 4.

That's where I looked too.  Not many folks who convert bother with that detail!

On the plus side it will pull in plenty of fresh, cool air.

You can drill the 57 dash for a 58 mirror and use the garnish trim off of a 58 to make that conversion.

The dash pattern does look like dots.

I bet it's a 57 that has been neutered into a lesser 58 to make another clone.
