Ride in 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air
This is my 59 Bel Air. I am the second owner, and have owned the car since
March 1978. I paid $75.00 for it, with 58,000 miles at that time. It is
still mostly original, other than it has been repainted, by me, in 1984.
Dashboard still has the factory original paint and gauges. Everything on
the car works great.
Options are, clock, deluxe heater, two speed electric wipers, AM
radio,Tissue Dispenser, parking brake alarm...blinking red light in very
beginning of video... EZI glass...tinted, rocker moldings, vent shades and
license plate pocket guard...gas filler is behind license plate.
The engine is a 348 cid 250 hp turbo
Thrust V-8, that has never been overhauled. It has a 4-Jet Rochester carb.
The power steering is driven off the rear of the generator...yes it has a
DC generator....not a AC alternator with diodes to change the AC to DC
current. Power brakes are Boosted by
factory Bendix Booster. Trans is a 3
speed manual and axle ratio is 3.36 to1.
Driving it from Michigan to Georgia it got 18 mpg and used no oil.
1959 Chevy Impala convertibles x2. (Australia) Breathtaking!
A couple of 59 Beauties here!. Two 59 Chevy ragtops both on display at the
American motor show 2000. (Sunday 5th March). Flemington racecourse, in
Flemington, Melbourne Australia. Don't know the story of the turquoise one,
but i knew someone who knew the owner of the red 'rare59'. Apparently it's
the original owner! Been in the country since new! Assembled right hand
drive! Now that's super rare in Aus, if another even exists. In Aus we
didn't get convertible or pillarless coupe models. They had to be ordered
personally through the dealer, if you were rich enough!!!

This 1959 Chevy Impala by Bob and Barb Delia and Mark Klopack is a Great
Eight Finalist and truly a work of art. But listen to Bob tell us why he
built the car (towards the end of the clip) to hear the philosphy of a true
