For Sale: 1959 Chevrolet Sedan in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

A classic sedan delivery is usually a really cool surf wagon today. But when you can get one in a 1959 Chevrolet - one of the most distinct and sought-after designs - it's ready to be an attention-grabber. And with legendary big block power, an overdrive transmission, and an extra comfy A/C interior there were big investments here to take this unique sheet metal and make it an all-around terrific classic.

This cool Chevy commands your attention from the moment it comes into view. But it's not necessarily the custom pieces that are the first thing you find striking. The delivery vehicle was all about being a simple worker machine, but the Chevy sedans this year had so many details that even industrial duty looked glamorous. You had the unique "eyebrow" hood trim, curved windshield, and bright chrome wraparound bumpers. And the tailfins are beautiful pieces that seem to rise higher as the fenders sink lower. They wrap around to meet on the deep "V" tailgate design for a true work of art. But this is more than just a vintage presentation. The red paint sets the tone for a street machine. It has the kind of glossy but imperfect style you'd get on a hot rod. And as you look at the Cragar SS wheels with extra meaty rear tires, you start to get the impression that this unique Chevy is made to deliver serious power to the streets.

The interior is a well-done package that gives you vintage style with all the right fresh upgrades integrated. For example, the split-bench seat is a true classic, but the plushness adds a new level of comfort. There are more great upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner that has an aux input, cup holders, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. The '59 Chevy had a terrific instrument cluster that looked like it belonged on a European sports car, and it only gets better when updated with a set of crisp AutoMeter readouts. It contributes to a nice driver-oriented feeling. In fact, this Chevy has plenty of fun sporty details that also have more function. For example, there's diamond plating on the lower dash, but the upper dash has a classic horizon tach mounted prominently on top. And the iron cross-style steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column. The rear cargo hatch swings up and out of the way to swallow the big items, and it also gives everyone a good view of the bow tie logos on the walls. And all that extra space in the finished cargo area is ideal for everything from tailgating to featuring a product from your business.

When you open the hood, you can't help but sing a tune. Oh yeah...she's real fine, my 409. This is an awesome-looking big block heart that was the king of the streets back in the day. And we have receipts showing this is a modern performance build. The motor was first hot tanked, and it has been rebuilt to be enhanced and fortified with Ross Racing forged 10.5 pistons, an Eagle crankshaft, a hydraulic roller camshaft, Isky Racing roller lifters, Edelbrock aluminum heads, and topped with an Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel carburetor. The whole package was built to run correctly, and that's why you have good supporting components like upgraded pulleys, a newer battery, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The Dougs headers snake their way under the X-frame chassis, and so this V8 has no trouble announcing its big power thanks to the wicked dual exhaust. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is ideal for handling big power while also smoothly shifting you into overdrive. And the suspension is the right mix of robustness and comfort with features like tubular front A-arms, a thick front sway bar, air shocks helping the coil spring rear, and a rear sway bar. Out on the road, features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs make this a fine cruiser to show off those big tailfins everywhere.

We have a huge receipt file documenting the six-figure level of work it takes to get to this level of power on quite a rare Chevy. So give us a call, and we'll be happy to go into all the details on the power and poise of this big block sedan delivery. Call today!!!
