    I've seen one in a 240 as well as an older model 911 porsche, and one guy who had swapped one into an older 50's econo truck (can't remember the exact name, but the motor was under the center console between the front seats).

    Haven't swapped any personally.

    There's a restored 57 Oldsmobile around town with an LS1 swapped into it. Sounds/looks great.

    Was'nt the Belair a wagon? I can't tell if it's a 56 or 57 without seeing the tail lights.. Funny how they did all that work (which is beutiful) only to not add a lid and smooth bellows... Very nice either way..

    That is a hard top 57. You can tell by the fins and the chrome on the side. They chrome on a 55 is straight back, the chrome on a 56 curves down, and the chrome on a 57 goes straight back and curves down with the white in between. But, mainly the fins are a dead give away of a five seven. btw I over that 57.

    To "2001CamaroSS" do you know how to get in touch with the owner for that car or, did you just snap pics?
