Listed as a 56, but I think it's a 57. The flames are godawful, and green tubing under the hood is even worse. Even the back windows and windshield have flames, because I guess you can never have too many flames on a car. And for every part of the car that doesn't have flames on it, there's stickers. Heater box, master cylnder, the small windows on the door, everywhere. Rims look like they were stolen from the engines of an airliner. Even replaced the emblem in the liscense plate frame with a skull. Steering wheel has a skull on it too because, the car obviously needed anther skull on it.

Kinda funny they painted flames alll over it but didn't bother to fix the rockers. I wouldn't be surprised if they attached that cone to the top car for decorative purposes. 

 

Also, if you look on the front seat, there's a box with switches. Is that hydraulics or airbags or something?

It's a '57 Saratoga from the look of everything on it and in it.

So if it had a key, it wouldn't be sold 'as is'?
Look at the jack under the rear door and the jack in front of the car.
Also check out the upper control arm, the hole torched in it and the reinforcement plates they welded on it again.
I wonder where they placed the actual shockabsorber now.

What a hackjob.

This car has been around for a long time, but I was only able to find one picture of it in better times.

It definitely got a rockabilly makeover in the early '00s, as that flat black with tribal flames zeros in on that time frame.

It looks like it was probably a nice car at one point; it's pretty straight and complete, the trim is all there. Might make a decent parts car, or hell, maybe fix the rockers, respray, and drive it again. The price is low.

That's a hydraulic suspension, btw. You can see the lines in the engine compartment. No telling what's been done to the frame and steering/suspension parts to make it all work.
