Sure, a wagon is versatile, but that's not what has grabbed your
attention. This 1959 Chevrolet Parkwood Station Wagon is a
high-style two-tone classic with a ton of driver appeal, right down
to the upgraded V8 power and four-wheel disc brakes.
The Bel Air line was an all-new design in 1959, and the front end
was one of the most distinctive designs to date. Jet-like hood
ornaments, chrome intakes above the bright grille, and Dagmars all
prove that Chevy wanted you to get noticed. But there's so much
more that's grabbing your attention on this Parkwood wagon. The
metallic orange is a bold color upgrade that has the gloss to show
off all the angles of the well-done sheet metal. Plus, the white on
the roof and insert in the full-length trim show a well-coordinated
two-tone style. And this color combo gives you the right contrast
to see those epic '59 tailfins in all their glory. It especially
looks impressive in the rear where the full package comes together
in one of the most daring forms ever put to sheet metal. It's a
terrific look for a custom cruiser, and the 18-inch Boss alloys on
a lowered stance let people know this is more than just a

remain useful. So two wide rows of bench seats give you plenty of
room for family and friends while still carrying cargo in the back.

you bring enough tailgating supplies for the whole block. Details
like the retro-style AM/FM radio, upgraded stereo speakers, and
working LED dome light make this feel like a more thoughtful
classic. And the gauge package has been upgraded to crisp AutoMeter
Pro-Comp units with a Moon horizon tach below the dash for a fun
The engine bay has an especially thoughtful layout. After all, now
only are the smooth inner-walls color-matched to the car, but also
so is the engine block. This has a touch of vintage style with the
classic Delco battery topper and cursive Chevrolet script valve
covers. But this Chevy is really more about being a strong driver
for modern times. You have an upgrade to a 350 cubic-inch V8. There
are additional desirable upgrades, like a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, a polished aluminum intake, an MSD ignition, and an
aluminum radiator with electric fans. It makes for a smooth-running
motor that's nicely matched with a smooth-shifting three-speed
automatic transmission. Plus, with power steering, modern sport
tires, and upgraded four-wheel disc brakes, this Parkwood is a
