Junkyard find: Iconic 1957 Chevy Bel Airs, Two-Tens and 150s

1957 Chevy with fangs? Not really, just factory bumper guards on this Tri-Five in a Pennsylvania junkyard.

More 1957 Chevrolets to lose sleep over. Ron Kidd's mid-summer trip to Pennsylvania resulted in the discovery of a long-forgotten junkyard. The junkyard, 24-miles south of Harrisburg, in Dover, Pennsylvania had been closed for decades. Rumors of the salvage yard's demise and sell-off of all cars and parts spread like wildfire across the mouths of Carlisle-bound car enthusiasts. Kidd sacrificed a day at the GM Nationals in Carlisle, PA. to bring you these photos of final year Tri-Five Chevys.

1957 Chevy 4 Door Sedan. Not much remains to identify it as a Bel Air, 210 or 150 series.
