1959 Chevy Belair 4 door, six cylinder car. I’ve had this car for 11 years, have had a lot of fun with it, always a conversation. It’s lived it whole life in Minnesota, South Dakota and Portland, Oregon until coming here to Southern California, so it has its fair share of rust, I have many more pictures so just ask. Just serviced engine and has always run well, good on gas, and just had new brakes put in, interior seats and door panels are shot, this car has stayed with all its original parts all these years, even have the original black metal oil bath filter in trunk. It has holes in floor and trunk which have been covered with fiberglass, leaks some oil. One back door is a little stiff, cracked window on driver side door, my dog tried to get out, but stable. The car has cool patina but it’s like a moving sculpture more than a car. The right front quarter panel pretty messed up as you can see, have better pictures, dents and scrapes and surface and real rust all over, car has never been to a body shop in its life obviously, ha, in that way and all others just a survivor, kinda don’t know how it did survive like this in all this time, but as long as I’ve had it, have used it weekly? I’ve had great fun with it, I think it’s very cool. Original steering wheel, horn works, Gas tank 11 years old but gas gage doesn’t work. It runs well, smooth running and quiet high thrift 235 six cylinder engine. Have spare tire and original rim like all the rest. I don’t want to get rid of it but have to get newer, I dread it, car for reliability! Windshield wipers have never worked since I’ve owned it, needs motor I suppose. Let me know what you want to know about it and I will answer every question honestly, thank you. Local pickup only and that’s up to you. Deposit of $500 due within 24 hours of sale and full payment due within 7 days of sale. No exceptions. Deposit is non refundable. Have clear tittle in my name in hand. Hand painted Frankenstein on side by me. Where else could you get a Batmobile at this price, tell me that? Thank you
On Dec-29-19 at 04:56:34 PST, seller added the following information:When I say the interior is shot I mean the front seat padding is virtually gone with different blankets over it and springs showing underneath so that all the padding must be replaced and in the back seating the padding is complete but seat cover is dry rotted and when rains hard some water does seep into drivers side corner in back. There’s probably plenty of rust underneath the seats judging from the floor boards. I do have sheet metal floor replacements in trunk of car that have never been used. I’m sure the whole floor should be replaced but I don’t know if this car in the condition it’s in is really worth the restoration. I just drove it as is, that would be up to how far you’d want to go with it? There is no headliner at all and door panels are all but gone. I think a door handle or crank in back are probably stuck, only a couple of times has anyone ridden in the back. This car is just a moving sculpture, it does run well, but I wouldn’t take it too far or fast, it needs a lot of strengthening I’m sure, ball joints etc, etc.Please do not bid because of competition in auction, this is not some game and are just wasting my time, money and effort. Putting back on because last “winner” got cold feet and backed out without even seeing the car and was local. Please ask questions, all questions BEFORE bidding. I refunded this guys deposit but I won’t do it again, so please be sure you want this car when you bid.
