    Default Need Help with Difference in '59 Impala vs Bel Air vs Biscayne

    Maybe some pictures would help
    I have a guy who wants to see me a 59 Biscayne with a 350 Engine. The car is completely solid (straight wings, grill, doors etc). I know there is some chrome differences, so I'm here to ask for help with identifying the differences in the exterior and interior chrome, badges, etc.

    If you have pictures, that would help even more. Thanks

    i assume were talking 2dr impala had a roll down quarter window. the other 2 had a post by the quarter window. when your looking at a bel-air/biscayne your often missing lights 2 of them. the 59 had the same tail lights, very few options, and looked more plain jane. used chevy logos as aposed to impala.

    like a work truck silverado with no extras, power steering, power windows, carpet, bone stock dish bowl hubcaps.

    If you're planning on building a Lowrider, ignore the guy. Period.








    and noooow come the people saying that Biscaynes, BelAirs, DelRays, 4 doors, etc make great lowriders. Whatever.

    Here are the pics of the Biscayne. There are some trim pieces missing.

    Anyone have pics of the interiors?

    Alot of hotrodders prefer the post cars.... not popular with the lowrider crowd. Biscayne is a stripped down, dechromed, bare bones model so dont expect alot. That one looks solid though.

    The non Impala 59s are still pretty badass, I wouldn't lowride one myself, but lowrod style they're dope. Not big on chopping the top off cars, but a permanent convertible 59 lowrod

    To be honest, if people want to try to "Out Class" each other, Cadillac is still General Motor's luxury vehicle line as it was back in 1959. I just wanted to know the noticible differences.

    Whats up Fletch?

    I think the roof is actually a little taller on them too (some post cars had a higher roof, but dont remember which ones).


    either way, some cutting, metal work, TIG welding, a little chopping and that would make a bad ass roadster (who needs side windows, hahaha).

    What's up Tattoo! You know me, I always have some crazy idea to do something. It would be easy to do a little cutting, welding and put some Impala trim on there and no one would know the difference! hahaha.

    I really dig customs. Take like 2" out of the front pillars and 4" out of the rear. remove the posts, ditch the door glass and quarter glass, make it a true roadster.
