My new project, 1958 Chevrolet Biscayne

Post by El Caballo on Tue Nov 30, 2010 9:28 am

I've been wearing out the internet looking at pictures of customized '58 Chevys. I'm pretty excited, as you can see it is a fairly solid car. I won't say how much I paid, but it is starvation cheap by Oz standards. albino

Feel free to give me opinions on colors and customization.

Not much needs doing as these 58's look customised straight from the factory.

Scope out MOX MILLERS, Frank Goulds LIME Lite, Andy Southards, Lee Pratts, Dave Lindsays and the Lowrider Feature car SOUTHSIDE BLUES for starters.

I too have a '58chev, although I went for a Yeoman wagon, two tone patina, manual, 283. All good and working, daily driver. Lowered 2 inches today , needs an idler arm, some round tyres, and just going to up grade or update electrics. Will post photos when I work out how too .

Went to the All American Day at Castle hill today with my Cousin and a couple of his mates. One of his mates is the guy who bought my old Biscayne back in 1989 and I had the pleasure of cruising with it to and from the show today. Was quite a nostalgic moment as I hadnt seen it in all that time.
Its not how id build it but very nice never the less.

Heres a couple of pics!
