Chevrolet offered a variety of 17 “fresh-minted models for every taste” in 1959. It’s remarkable how thoroughly some styling permeated the entire lineup – like the famous wings! Top the line series is the famous Impala, followed by Bel Air and Biscayne. The all American Sports Car – the Corvette – is of course among the roster. Chevy’s flat, restrained grille sporting quad headlamps, squashed tailfins and cat’s-eye taillights show up on everything from the Brookwood to the Nomad. The “longer, lower, wider” mantra may not have been coined to describe these models, but they certainly embody that design philosophy.

If you’d like to learn more about the cars, styling & features, the 1959 Chevrolet Showroom Album is the key source to buy. It was made to turn prospects into buyers. Every dealership in the US had a copy of this – now ultra rare – book.

It covers all series and body styles! Almost every model is presented with a big and colorful illustration. Each series has an own section to explain everything special. There are lots of graphics showing the all original factory correct interior beauty. That makes restorations much easier. Included models are:
