Grandson Surprised His Grandpa On His 81st Birthday With A Priceless Gift From 1957

2208 ratings | 347414 views
This grandson went above and beyond the call of duty to help his grandfather's dreams become a reality. Cam Dedman has a very special relationship with his grandfather, Fred Lamar. "Since I've been a little kid I've always been very close with my grandpa," said Cam. That's why Cam spent almost $30,000, and over a year of his time, to give his grandfather the ultimate surprise! Fred bought his 1957 Chevy Bel Air in the early 1970s. Unfortunately, the car had been sitting in his garage since 1976! "He always had hoped to fix it up like he wanted. I told myself one day I would be the one to do it," said Cam. In September 2016, Cam set out to complete his mission. Cam had told his grandfather he just wanted to get the car running again. In between his jobs working as a landscaper and a restorer, Cam worked on the car four days a week.

The 57`s are the most sought after cars,,, BUT they are also the most expensive to rebuild I have a 56 ,4 dr wagon and compared to the 55,and 6 replacement parts are cheaper then the 57 the chrome for the 56 is almost the same as the 57 but about $100.00 more

My very first car was a fire engine red 57 Bel Air convertible. Stolen in 1961 before I bought it in 63, it had everything new, engine, trans, buckets. I payed 600 dollars for that car and sold it for 300 in 67. My car ownership went downhill after that.

And sometime later, the grandson didn't inherit the car 😕

We had a 57 Chevy 4-Door when I was a young teenager; too bad a lady ran right into the side of the car and totalled it just after we had it only for a few months. Side note: I think most of these stories are made up and not real. There wouldn't have been a 4 speed with 4 door 57 Chevy as they show.
Garrett Smith (3 months ago)
There could be a 4 speed 4 door if they put it in aftermarket, but what is odd is I don't see a clutch pedal.
Tim Mitzlaff (3 months ago)
That’s the best looking 4 door 57 I’ve ever seen. Everything works together to look fantastic. What a nice family.

I've got a 57' Bel Air ,2 door post that's been sitting in my yard for 20 years. My son's never call me so I'll never experience the joy this man has. I'll die single and alone.

You could put this on a national tour of auto shows. Fans would line up to drool all over it. A great restoration of a classic. Want to solve the auto sales slump? Start manufacturing these again.

The first car I ever bought was a 1957 Belair two door hard top in 1967 from a buddy of mine when he got out of the Army and I was still in. The story could go on but the car ended when I hit a large oak tree after some serious drinking and it was sadly totaled. OK now my head is filled with remembering all that that car meant to me and a books worth of stories.

A great YouTube posting. It's positive and pure joy. Thanks for the smiles grandson/grandpa.

Waste of money putting in that 4 door
wilkesjournal (5 months ago)
g butera. That's wrong. Outdated 1980s thinking. Way more four doors were sold originally, for one good reason-that's what people used and wanted. Cruising with friends or family, no one has to climb around the seat and squeeze through the narrow opening to get in the back. Four doors are more fun. If the return on your financial investment in it is the most important thing, then you're not really a car guy.

Once "gas mileage" became a big issue all cars were designed in a wind tunnel for better areodynamics, thus better gas milage. Unfortunately it made all cars look the same.
Sterling Price (6 months ago)
Exactly. It used to be that if you knew what to look for you could tell a chevy from a ford a mile away in the dark following on the road just by the taillights.
Bobby Mcghee (6 months ago)
