Our Choice: ’59 Chevrolet Biscayne 348cid, Three Deuces & a 4-speed
We instantly fell in love with this crazy car that we know so little about. The eBay listing tells us it has a new interior, nice paint, runs great with few miles since it was built. That leaves us with so many questions. For the purpose of this featured listing since we don’t feel like calling the guy (we might get suckered into buying it), let’s assume it is a factory correct Biscayne 348cid, 4-speed, with Tri-Power. According to Hagerty, it is very possible since this combo was an option. How cool is this car with its batwing tailfins and a grille that looks like giant jacks welded together (referring to the game jacks not the floor jack). Other than the tailfins and the outrageous grille the car is unadorned except for the chrome tip tailpipes exiting the rear bumper. The interior is just as plain but we like the seat color choice and the fact that it is a bench. The 4-speed shifter supplied by Muncie is perfect. We have tentative plans to attend the events held in Monterey this coming August. It becomes car crazy town for at least a week and maybe longer. The streets will be littered with 12 cylinder Ferraris, Early Lamborghinis, Gullwings and Bugattis. So this would be our choice for the car that breaks through the clutter and gets noticed. Hmmm, I wonder if it has Glasspacks? According to Hagerty, the best one on earth will fetch $30 grand. So you can figure less for this driver. Even less if it is a clone. Click here for the listing.
