Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part 2 of 2)
In part 2 of this new full-length episode, we get the old Chev home and start seeing if, in fact, it will run. Is it even possible that we might get it to move under its own power for the first time in 45 years? Do we have some sweet rims for this one? Tune in for more thoughtful, insightful contemplation on these important issues.
1957 Chevy in a wrecking yard
Can you believe, a complete 57 chevy belair 4dr hdtp just arriving into a wrecking yard now, in Oct, 2009. They have to part it out because it came from a police auction and sold to be dismantled only, it cannot be retitled, and I would be afraid to own it because the person it was siezed from may be dangerous, its not worth the risk, it suks, but I don't blame the police for selling it to be dismantled only, they are protecting themselves and you. I don't know if they are ready to sell parts off it yet, but they will soon! See some of the other cars. A 66 chevelle 2dr hdt, and 63-64 impalas plus Montecarlos SS's
57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that was buried in
Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50
years later on June 15, 2007.
I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it turned
out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the
automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the past
few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from
the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad
feeling about her condition.
I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's
actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would
be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to

Miss Belvedere Moves On
By Old Cars Weekly
After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss Belvedere," is on the road once again.
Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a truck.
After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future.
Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part of a contest held back in 1957.
Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer than any other entry.
Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation.
As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the rusty relic.
According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under her own power.
Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat designed to halt the rusting process.
"We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr. Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing is done, this car will be dust in two years."
According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear.
However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years.
