I am real close to purchasing an original Cascade Green 57. Who likes this color, and who doesn't? Is this going to be a hard color to sell one day. I kind of like it, but admit that I would want to sell it one day and am curious if it will be hard to get rid of?
Well although I am not really a "green" type of guy, there are some that I do like... Cascade being one of them... Buy it's really up to "YOU".. If you like it (and your wife if you're married) then that's cool.. Your buying the car for your enjoyment not someone elses... IF you decide to sell at a later time, just look within.. You bought it right??? So will someone else... Have phun..
You don't even have the car purchased and your worrying about selling it? Sounds like you don't keep cars very long. Just remember... if it says chevrolet on the hood some fool will pay more than you did. Cascade green is the best color in 57, based on my 3 cents.
I think it is a great color and you should buy it and enjoy it.
Keep in mind in a few years when you try and sell it, you will realize it is a very difficult color to sell and you will take a major loss on the sale. But call me (only) and out of the generosity of my heart and since you are a forum brother, I will try and pay you something for your old, undesireable '57.
Buy this car. Enjoy this car. It is a classic look from the 50's. It's a '57. IT'S A '57! IT IS A 1957 CORVETTE! I want a '57 bad. Buy this car so I can live knowing that another forum member has this car and it is in safe hands. Go buy it now. Today. Stop reading this and go get that car. NOW.
Paint it so you like it--for me that green is for MG's tho i spent to long in Uncle Sams green machine so i just might be a little one sided? me i'm going with "resale red" on my car -have to as the seats are done in red already --Glenn
In general, green isn't one of my favorite car colors, but Cascade Green on a '57 is "boss," as Murray the K (the self proclaimed "fifth Beatle") might have said on 1010 WINS back in the mid- '60's before the station converted from top 40 format to all news.
It is a real '50's type of color, so it's perfectly relevant for the car.
I'd say go for it without hesitation, assuming the car, exclusive of color, is what you would be happy with.
I'd sure give you an admiring and enthusiastic wave if you were driving by, as I would to any Vette, especially a C1 or C2.
