For Sale: 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

For 1959, the GM Design Center would set the "look" and basic body parameters for a number of wheelbases, firewall and door hinge lines, floor and roof height, and so on. Chevrolet stylists took a huge gamble that those huge horizontal fins, even in a tailfin crazy market, and it would catch the fancy of the new-car buyer. Wide "cat's-eye" taillights never prototyped on any GM dream car drove home the impression. As the dropped-in-front look was beginning to move from street rods to late-models. Every inch of this '59 has been touched in some way! The long, sloping lines of this car have been accented by various paint & stainless trim accents. The orange & off-white custom paint makes this car stand out in the crowd! Power comes from a legendary 409 CID big-block engine, with an MSD ignition system, paired with a 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission transferring ground-pounding power to a Ford 9 inch with 3.70 gears. A Custom Auto-Sound stereo system provides entertainment while the Vintage Air Conditioning system keeps driver & passengers comfortable while cruising down the road! Other drivability & creature comforts include power steering, power brakes, custom alloy wheels shod with steel-belted radial tires, tilt steering wheel, Classic Instruments gauges & to finish it off, it has a custom vinyl interior mimicking the original design. While the hood emblem, fender & door trim have been air-bushed on for a custom touch, the fins & trunk lid retain the factory stainless steel trim. If you've ever wanted a '59 Chevrolet, don't let this one get away!
