1958 Chevrolet BiscayneThis '58 is a solid and reliable old hot rod.
The drivetrain appears to be all original 283 C.I. with a few updates such as a newer Eldebrock 4 BBL carburetor and after-market headers. Transmission appears to be the original transmission as well (automatic powerglide).
Has dual exhaust with Thrush glasspacks and pencil tip chrome exits in front of each rear wheel.
The floorboards are original with no rust issues. There is no carpet so you can see them in the pics. They are painted black. Likewise, there are no rust issues with the frame rails or underside - just minor surface rust.
Horn, gauges (except temp gauge), wipers, and lights all work as they should.
Four hubcaps come with the car - some pics are without them because I also like the steel wheels (black). Hubcaps have some surface rust.
Rear skirts are both on the car and fully functional.
The rear doors have had the handles shaved. Door poppers have been added, but the doors are heavy and I've not had much luck with the poppers working well.
Interior is rough. No headliner or carpet. The front seat is pretty good but the back seat is stained and I usually have it covered. There are door panels in the trunk, but I don't know how salvageable they are. A few look pretty good if you wanted to restore them.
All body panels, hood and trunk are rust free. No holes or rust spots. The paint is primer and there is some surface rust beginning to show. I took a close up pic of one area.
While the panels are all all straight, the doors are a bit wavy when you look down the side of the car. Not sure they would be easily restored if you want to attempt a restoration.
Runs and drives smooth. Very reliable. Pulls to the side when braking, but I drive without problems.
I included a lot of detail and a lot of pics, but let me know if you have any questions. If you want a reliable old cruising hot rod that's far from perfect, but very cool to cruise and turn heads, this is for you. If you want a glossy, high-end, expensive ride, this is not your car.
