    Well my wife has been wanting a 59 Chebby for a long time, she learned to drive in a 59 Elky. And when she seen Mamma Rash's car at the drags it just lit the fire again. So we drug this heap home yesterday. Its a little on the rough side but its complete. 6er and a glide. The IROC wheels were on the car...I think they add to the gayness.

    Anyone have any good parts sources for 59's? It needs some repair panels and a few trim pieces. Also who is a stocking dealer for Supremes other than Moon?

    <font color="green">COOL!!!

    We can have a 59 match up at the drags next year!!!

    As for parts...Travis here on the HAMB has alot of parts and at great prices. I personally haven't bought anything from him because I'm sceered to spend money right now. But, I have asked him about a hundred different things and he always comes up with something. And, he hasn't told me to F off yet.

    Do a google search for "59 Chevy parts" and all kinds of stuff will pop up.

    Be sure to check the club sights as they will have links and some of those dudes have been hoarding parts for a long time.

    Stay away from Impala Bob's. Just my advice.

    SHe doesn't look too bad and that was a great price!!! </font>

    First car was a 59.
    Loved it.
    Try Mill's Supply Co. for sheet metal.
    Year One, Harmon/s, Impala Bob's, for new plastic and trim parts.

    I have sonme Impala parts from a former loved one, you are welcome to.
    Just for the shipping cost.
    If there is anything you need in my junk.
    Think I have four boxes of stuff.

    <font color="green">Hey Scourge,

    Not to jack this post, but there are a few things I'm after for Mama's 59.

    Of course Greezy gets em first if he needs them since you offered them to him first.

    By the way, why is that? I thought you worshipped ME? </font>

    There is a decent 59 around the corner from me, it just sits there and never moves. Every week or so I make a point of walking the dog down there so I can look for a for sale sign on it. Of course, my Ford has been sitting in my driveway for just as long...

    Deyo, keep your Ford.....don't get lured in by the beauty of the 59 Chevy........I almost did ...once.

    Hey Rashy, I still have the line on that 4 door down the street. I'll go today and see if I can get the whole car. I think he just wants to get rid of it. You and Greezy can have anything off of it.........no attatchment here....

    What a sweet ride, and having the little lady involved makes it all the better. Hell, my wife put up a grand for us to get a old 41 Willys, so I could make it into a Gasser HotRod. Were lucky to have HotRod Gals!

    Yep, '59s are a world onto themselves.

    FWIW, they can be lowered a LOT very easily. Up front you will have to clearance the straight six oil pan, or raise the engine and use a low profile breather, move the steering arms to the bottom of the spindles and trim and plate the front crossmember. After that you can pick up a pair of late caprice police springs, trim them to the height and install. For the back, use late caprice police or station wagon springs trimmed to heigth, a thin block between the axle and the wishbone, and slightly clearance the floorpan for the driveshaft. I don't have any photos of my black '59 wagon, but I ran'205/65/15s up front and 285/70/15s out back and had two inches of clearance between the ground and the front of the rocker and three and a half inches between the ground and the back of the rocker panel. I didn't have to modify the wheelwells or fenders except to roll the top edge of the fenderwells.

    Mike's got the a similar setup on his old HotRodPro car. He sold the "vintage" Boyds on ebay for a fortune and had cash left over after he purchased the "Milner Special" Chrome wheels and cut sidewall BFGs.

    Even this low it takes a LOT to bottom it out.
