(191 items)

Here is my 1959 Chevy Biscayne, factory 283ci with power glide tranny.
It has power steering, power brakes and ice cold a/c. It had a triple deuce carburetor on it, but I couldn't keep the darn thing running right so we replaced it with a 650 edelbrock carb and now it purrs like a kitten. We take it to cars shows and Sunday ice cream runs. Thanks for looking!

    What a great car, It takes me back, I tried to get my older brother to buy a 1959 convertible, gray with red interior, but Dad wouldnt let him buy it, back in 1967.
  12. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks EJW-54, wow a convertible in todays market would be worth big money. I was looking at some old video (1960) of my grandfathers home and in the garage he had two 1959 Eldorado Cadillac convertibles, one for him and one for grandma. I never knew that until I watched the video a couple of months ago. Only if we had a crystal ball, we would know what to keep and what to get rid of.

    The custom Gods smile down on you from their heavenly garage. Looks like it just came off the cover of the little rod mags back in the day. NICE !!!!

    My grandfather "Little Poppy" gave my oldest brother a red and white 59 Biscayne. My bro would take me to his bar league softball games in Schwenksville, Pa.some twenty odd miles from home in Glenside Pa, The shocks were completely worn out and I thought it rode like a dream. After the games they used to let me fill beers at the keg, which made me way cool, at least in my mind. To be 12 or 13 and hang with twenty year olds that were drinkin beer, in those days it was cool.I remember a song on the car radio, my brother said it was new and the singer was gonna be big. Too this day every time I hear Piano Man it feels like the when I heard it in that old Chevy and the Juke box at the Schwenksville Tavern. Thanx Billy and you too Mr. Chevrolet, in classic car heaven.

    Thank you Vontrike!
  18. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks ERMELIN for stopping by, It's great to reminisce about the good ol days, I do it often, especially in the 59. I pop in an elvis cd, turn the volume up and cruise right back to the 50's.
  19. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago

  21. gvgordon gvgordon, 2 years ago
    If you ever want to go back to the 3 X 2 set up, I have a friend in Michigan who is a master with multiple carb set ups.
    Very nice Biscayne.
  22. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks for stopping by gvgordon, I will probably keep it the way it is, I haven't had to mess with the carb since the change over. Thanks again!
  23. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thank you Stonie for the love!
  24. Trey Trey, 2 years ago
    Wow nice ride, would love to find a 59.
  25. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks Trey, these cars seem to be getting harder to find, good luck on your search for one!
  26. Benking, 2 years ago
    Oh, how lucky you are!

    It is not a Toyota or another Japan crap!

    North American cars co should make these now too in 2012, similar, I say!!!

    What do you think?
  27. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Yeah Benking they could make them, but probably would cost to much to build them. Cars back then had character and you could tell them apart, today cars all look the same. I saw a car yesterday I swore was a Mercedes, but it turned out to be a Honda.
  28. Benking, 2 years ago
    Thanks Chevy!

    You are right metal from Canada and USA are now sent to be molded in Japan...
    and maybe now Obama sends it to China?

    Let's get back to do our own cars, I say!

    No more juts Japanese asses as all cars now look like!
    We need individual North American car cos like Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford... to create again at home!!!

    My friend can barely get in mother's Dodge car, as his head goes through the roof
    and he curves too much his body in order to sit somehow!

    I often have back troubles because I drive that Japan molded car!!!

    How can we get back OUR cars and trucks to be ours for our bodies!!! =- ???

    I love your car!
  29. ERMELIN, 2 years ago
    Hey Benking Im a BIG GUY and have noooo trouble fitting in my large AMERICAN CHEVROLET TAHOE Z71, put your money where your mouth is. Im 53 and never owned a rice burner, never will. America Is the greatest country in the world, show your pride. And yes I have been to other counties .
  30. Benking, 2 years ago
    Ermein, you say just like I did and do:
    we need our own North American cars for OUR own bodies!

    Just like Dodge, Chev and Ford did do then in the 50's, 60's...
    we nned to do now in 2012 likewise!
  31. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago

    A beauty, sometimes I love to watch the old Perry Mason show, as he always had the best convertibles and late 50's cars to drive.
  35. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks PDAM, I usually get my dad had one of these cars when I was a kid, and they are usually in there 70's. Lol
  36. jamiedpt jamiedpt, 2 years ago
    That has got to be one of the greatest looking cars I have ever seen! WOW
  37. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks jamiedpt for the nice comment. I feel the exact same way you do when I first laid eyes on her!
  38. Buick55 Buick55, 2 years ago
    Love that design! My uncle had a '59 El Camino in red & white. My dad's cousin was on the Chevrolet design team in those days and he supposedly had a lot to do with the design of this car. Very COOL!
  39. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thank you Buick55, 59 El Camino's are awesome as well, I wish they would remake the 59 in todays market, probably would be pretty cool!

    I heard that someone or company bought the factory molds for the 57 chevy and they are stamping them out maybe just a story don't know.
  42. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago

    I was about 11-12 yrs old when my friend Larry's mom got one of these, a blue 4 door sedan. She would take us to the municipal swimming pool every day, and then we would wait at a nearby corner to catch my dad on his way home from work. We'd ride home in the back of his blue & white '59 Ford pickup. Great memories.
  48. jimborasco jimborasco, 2 years ago
    Oh, the memories!! Thanks for posting this excellent automobile! Jimbo
  49. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago

  51. billyg billyg, 2 years ago
    Nice. Very well done. Being my birthyear and a lover of ElCaminos, I am presently restoring one.Body is ready. Frame has all suspension and steering back on. Time to put the pieces back together. Saw a 59 2 door for sale. Told the wife we could have a set. She didn't go for it.
  52. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks billyg, if the price was right on the 59 2 door, I would buy it and sit on it. These cars are getting very hard to find. Good with luck with the restoration!
