Finally brought one home...
Wow that thing is gorgeous!!!
Nice set of wheels!
Man im a sucker for c/k trucks from 67/72 and yours is killer!!!!
And the 59 you brought home is absolutely beautiful!
Yes it is clean.I saw it in Nashville before he got it. You did good my friend!!
My first car was a 59 biscayne 4 door. Same exact paint scheme as this one. I've always wanted to buy a 2 door version. Nice looking car!
WOW-you waited a long time for the right one. Looks great. I had a pink 2 door hard top with the same two tone.
He knows plenty about it what he is saying is that I have this stone that I can't sell and if you don't know what to look for I aint telling you.
As was mentioned look above the rear axle on the chassis, also look real close at the A arm bushings.
If it was a country road car the fuel tanks rusted out on them on top. No way to check it really even with a mirror but you can tell if it was a country road car by looking on the holes in the chassis for gravel and mud. It may not be rusted out on top of the tank but it is something to think about for a later expense.
You've waited a long time, but the results of that wait look well worth it. Enjoy and congratulations.
