That body style looks good in a convertible!

Enjoy!

Any Forward Look 'vert that is not rusted and caved in behind the cowl is worth buying.
They are few and far in between.
Good score!

A forward look drop top is not something you see a lot of at the cruise nights. I would keep it and have some fun riding around with the top down and cool tunes playing. Nice score!

Nice. I still have my 58 coronet 2dr Hardtop and 57 D500 4dr Hardtops to work on, as I try to thin my herd (I sold the 59 and the other 57 Coronets). Once I get to where I can sell these, I will focus on a couple 60s and 70s Mopars I have.

As a 57 Plymouth owner, I would keep the Belvedere and sell the Desoto. I am not a fan of converts but I would keep this one. Which engine does it have?

That convert. would look better with the sportone trim added. I like the Desotos too but I'm a '57 Plymouth guy ever since my older brother bought a new '57 Belvedere back in November of '56. I've owned mine since August of 1964.

Keep the '57 Belvedere but you might want to pass the other 1 down to a family member so both cars will stay in the family . Both cars would be an excellent participant for a Xmas parade especially with the top down and decorated

I remember back in the 80s a mopar magazine did an article on your '57 I used to have 1 back in the 80s but some idiot pulled out in front of me and caused me to total her . I will admit I still miss the car

Yes, that was my car in High Performance Mopar Magazine back in 1989. I've had several over the years including a few 58s but this one I've had since 1964.

A friend of mine is also selling his '57 Belvedere convertible. But it's in France (and the car was sold new in France with kph speedo). This is the original color, Burgundy; the guy who bought it in 1957 wasn't afraid to get noticed ! Note that the car have the front and rear bumper guards ...
