About “BlackWing”

I've wanted a 1959 or 1960 Chevy for as long as I can remember. Mostly I was looking at coupes and convertibles... Then I saw this wagon on eBay a little while back and flat fell in love! It's in decent condition and drives 100%. All I need to decide now is will it be a stock restoration, a Resto-Mod, or an all-out Street Rod

About “Pink Firecracker”

Brought from Missouri on 9/10/11.
Owned by a little old lady just outside of Kansas City. Drove it from 1956 until 1974. Her daughter didn't want so all the fluids were drained and it was put in a shed until about 2009.
It's the first time this 34,000 mile 210 Sedan has been out of Missouri.
Plan on having fun with it while we restore it!

Mods for “BlackWing”

Well, it's been repainted (badly!) from white to black...

Mods for “Pink Firecracker”

I plan on keeping it pretty much as original except adding a hide away radio in the trunk to maintain the radio delete.
I think I might look into some kind of air conditioning at some point.
