Wrecked is a one of the features on Average Guys’ Car Restoration, Mods and Racing that spotlights vintage cars that are available as parts donors. I do this based on the offering that PartingOut.com has listed.
Parting Out does a great job of pulling together offering from across the country of salvage yards and private individuals that have vintage/classic car parts available for plundering. Many of these are located in the steel friendly Texas.
Up this time a 1959 Chevy Bel Air, oh yea…the era of big finned cars.
This car’s not ‘wrecked’ and there is a lot of good steel and good looking chrome still on it. It is a 4 door.
Good look steel, restorable dash and it even had the original power plant – 283 maybe? See at PartingOut.com 1959 BEL AIR.
The 1959 Bel Air was the 4th Generation Bel Air – basically an entirely new car as compared to the 1958 Bel Air. The 1959’s came in 2 door, 4 door and re-branded as Parkwood or Kingswood for the station wagons. To power these 210.9″ long cars you had the 3.9L (235.5 cid), 4.6L (283 CID) and the 5.7L (348 CID). They were mated up 3 & 4 speed manuals or 2 speed power glide automatic.
Grab some of these parts and you could have a classic that looks like these:
Thanks for reading.
