Rare Find – 1957 Chevy 210 Townsman Wagon Parked for 35 Years

This car was driven into this barn in 1985 where it sat until February 2020. The original owner was a gentleman named Donald Russell. The new owner of the ’57 Chevy is Danny Rathe of Rapid City, South Dakota. Danny is a small-town car dealer…

Don parked it in that barn in 1985 for an undisclosed reason and after his passing, his son-in-law had the task of selling his 40-acre property. Not only did the property contain the awesome 1957 Chevy wagon, but it also contained the following: A 1977 Chevy El Camino and a 1952 Buick Special (which you can see under the lean-to), a 1937 Ford ½-ton truck and a 1961 Apache pop-up camper. Inside the barn sat a 1965 Buick Wildcat and a two-door 1975 LeSabre along with the ’57.

Here you can see the outside and inside. Aside from a couple of tears in the driver’s seat, this thing looks awesome! What do you think about this find?
