It was not a
motorcycle but the familiar 1957 Chevy 210 "Handy Man" Station Wagon
that served as West Coast Choppers builder supreme Jess James' canvas when he
created this "low-rider" custom. On display for several years at the
National Motorcycle Museum the car will be at auction at Mecum's Kansas City
sale December 6-8, 2012. The car will be on the auction block Friday December 7
at 3:05 pm.
James began with
a very solid 1957 two-door wagon retaining its incredibly fine stock, original
factory deluxe interior and straight six engine with three speed, column shift
transmission. But it's the paint, (especially on the roof!) and what's in the
trunk that counts with this car.
hydraulic ram system, independent at each corner of the car, allows any
combination of ride height and rake. All the chromed out suspension operating
equipment is racked in the luggage area, all on view through the rear windows.
Base mint green
paint is new. Violet-purple flames with pin-stripes all new. Straight pull
chrome wire wheels and narrow white walls are in excellent condition. Car runs
and drives fine and was registered in 2012, now shows only 65,470 miles on the
records show less than 18,000 of this 1957 Chevy Handyman model were built. A
prime year for Chevrolet design, this car will always serve as a reminder of
Jesse James' flare for customizing.
