    Look at the rear of a 1959 Chevy sedan.

    Licence plate holder also flips so when the tail gate is down you can see the plate

    first year for elky's. chevy saw the success from ford's 57 and wanted in. they made theirs with more styling, like the wrap around rear window. or, more expensive.

    Didn't know that was the first year,the car had North Carolina tags so I thought he was pretty brazen driving it that far up the coast

    The '59 Elco is my favorite Chebby; we had a '59 4-door when I was a kid, and I just love the cat's-eye taillights. And the rust holes in the floor. It was neat watching the road go by. But yeah, If I had the money, I'd have a W-engine '59, and maybe a wagon to go with it.

    Every chevy I owned became a rust bucket,my last gm product was a 1985 blazer s10 bought new,and not for nothing I keep my wheels clean,and it rusted right out from under me,within 5 years the floor boards rotted out,brake lines 3years and I got rusty jones when I bought it,guaranteed to prevent rust,I think they drilled holes and pumped in roof cement,bought my first ford in 1990 and put a minimum of200,000 miles plus on every one I've owned since

    Heh heh heh
    I have one
    Fantastic hiway car---will seat 4 comfortably----everybody looks when you drive by
    Too big to park anywhere---not the easiest to maneuver in down town.

    My 65 Ranchero and the 59 Elky-----I get a lot of people that have never seen one-----probably 'cause everyone has Chevelles.

    Got one of those too----66 Elky------this one only gets attention from the Chevelle/ElCamino people
    The 65 and the 59-----get attention from everyone.

    That's why I envy you. And if I were driving it, there'd only be three in the cab....:eek:
