For Sale: 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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 grocery-getter.


The tan upholstery looks nice against the exterior orange, and you know that because it returns on the dash. Even the steering wheel shows off the exterior's two-tone. This classic wagon likes to 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. Or you can fold down the rear seats for the kind of space that lets 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 classic look.


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 confident cruiser.


You're looking at a distinct and classic Chevy that also happens to be a very practical wagon. So if you like to get attention in your classic, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
