1959 Chevy Impala Convertible
Perfection..that's all that really needs be said! Everything about this
car is first class, the paint, the interior...everything! Probably the
most controversial thing about these 59 Chevys was the back end...the cats'
eyes tailights and the swept horizontal fins. The following year would be
a return to more mainstream styling.
I personally like the cats eyes...a touch of creativity!

Named in honor of the salt flats where speed records have been set for
decades, this fuel injected 1957 Pontiac is one of the rarest and most
desirable 50s collector cars ever produced.
Fresh out of a complete frame off restoration in which not a penny was
spared, this Pontiac is decidedly one of the most impressive cars I've ever
seen. The smooth Harley Earl designed body panels are completely free of
any waves or blemishes and the cars straight and narrow panel gaps are
likely much better than what came from the factory 54 years ago. On top of
the clean body, familiar Kenya Ivory paint, worn by all 1957 Bonnevilles,
displays an excellent shine. And on the sides of the car, Bonneville Red
'splashes' complete a look that was shared by most of the 630 cars
Under the hood of this '57 Bonneville you'll find an original 347 cubic
inch fuel injected V8 with a 10.25 to 1 compression ratio and, according to
Pontiac, 'over 300 horsepower'. On top of the
motor, an original Rochester fuel injection system receives cool air from a
correct black "Pontiac" decaled air cleaner that is piped to the front of
the car and covered in steel mesh. In front of the air cleaner, a correctly
tagged Delco generator is spun by a new V-belt, and behind the fuel
injection system a correct points distributor sends spark through correct
black plug wires. On the left side of the motor, factory correct standard
power steering sits behind a correct black radiator which sends and
receives water through correct hoses with correct clamps. Hanging from the
cars correctly marked Ivory fire wall is a correct glass Cadillac decaled
reservoir that holds windshield washer fluid and a correct heater blower
that pipes warm air to the interior through vents in the cars kick panels.
Behind this Pontiac's fuel injected 347 V8 is an original Strato Flight
Hydra-Matic 4-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a correctly
rebuilt rear end. Braking is handled by standard equipment power drum
brakes that bring the car to a stop in a surprisingly short distance, and
turning is aided by standard equipment power steering that both improves
handling and makes slow speed navigation a lot more manageable in this long
and heavy car. Above the suspension, the cars floor pans are exceptionally
solid and display a fresh coat of red undercoating, and all of the small
details such as new stainless fuel lines new brake hoses, a new stainless
fuel tank and a factory correct replacement Exhaust system have been installed to a very
high standard. Putting the power to the pavement is four Bonneville Red 14
inch factory steel wheels that feature stainless tri-blade wheel covers and
8.50-14 wide white wall tires.
Loaded with every option in the book except air conditioning, this
Bonneville's interior features a perfect mix of outrageous style and
typical American luxury. The front eight-way power seat is covered in
Tartan Red and Ivory leather and features chrome adjustment buttons, new
lap belts and a complimentary color design to the pristine rear leather
seat. In front of the power seat, a Bonneville Red dash is capped by a
great looking Tartan Red pad and finished by mirror-like stainless lower
panels that house chrome knobs for the cars accessories. In front of the
driver, a bright stainless instrument bezel houses a horizontal speedometer
over round chrome trimmed gauges for the cars vitals, controls for the cars
heater, a standard Wonderbar AM radio and a standard continuous motion
clock. Below the dash, like-new red carpet sits below chrome trimmed pedals
that feature awesome "Brake" and "Power" lettering and features no wear and
tear at all. In front of the driver, a standard equipment deluxe steering
wheel features a chrome horn ring inside a marbled Ivory rim, and sits in
front of a chrome column mounted gear selector, a chrome gear indicator and
a chrome turn signal stalk. At the center of the steering wheel, stylized
"Pontiac" script sits on a mesh-look backing below a "Power Steering"
emblem that incorporates a traditional gold Pontiac indian head insignia.
This investment grade 1957 Bonneville is one of the finest Pontiacs left on
