1959 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe 2 door for sale 59 bel air caprice biscayne
1959 Impala. Very rare chance and a small window of time at an opportunity
to own a complete car with all trim in tact in running and driving
condition. Video used to help describe the condition. Refer to ebay
auction for the listing to bid on the car. NO RESERVE AUCTION. The car is
very solid over all showing just minor some what recent rookie repairs as
expected on a car this old. The floor pans will need replaced but are
still all there and intact...its not all hacked up. The car looks strait
as an arrow... must see in person. Interior has held up well. The repair
spots that the car does have were done by an obvious rookie or backyard
mechanic showing clearly the areas where is has had minor work done. I
sanded down some spots on the car just for verification of how solid this
car is. It amazes me how well it has held up over the years. Please feel
free to ask questions as I would be happy to help with them. I did not
stress too much on speaking for the mechanical part of this car because the
biggest part about this car is the condition of the car itself. The car
runs great and drives good shifts good and all... the Exhaust and many of the mechanical parts are all
in great shape. Car SOLD IN 6 Days... ON 25 Jan 2013

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.
