Purchased from the Branson Auto & Farm Museum

In the late 50’s and 60’s the 57 Handyman wagons were used by contractors and service companies, which reduced the amount of these vehicles drastically, because many were scrapped. Estimates are that less than 1000 exist and that includes all conditions including parts cars and everything in between. It is more of a rarity when you find these wagons as a number one, but now you have. One avid Chevy collector stated that he has been going to car shows and cruises for 35 years and he had seen many nice Nomads, but had only witnessed one Handyman’s Wagon in #1 condition.

#1 condition and this wagon has many pro-touring upgrades, but the build has maintained the entire 57 characteristics that Chevy instilled into their 50’s manufacturing scheme. Standard wagons and 4 doors in average condition are selling for between $50k to $100k and in order to create a masterpiece such as this 57, once would spend over $100k in the build alone.

Auction Estimate: $125,000.00 to $135,000.00
