Bit Of A Sleeper: 1958 Chevrolet Biscayne Wagon

This 1958 Chevrolet Biscayne station wagon might look a little rough, but the seller claims that it runs and drives like a champion. It has a Buy-It-Now price of $7,500 but you also have the ability to make an offer. This wagon is located in San Jose, California. A VIN is listed and the title is clean but is from Oregon. The miles are dialed in to 29,704 on the odometer. Thank you, local_sheriff, for the tip. You can view more on eBay.

Under the hood is a 400 cubic inch, small block V8 that is connected to a Turbo 350 automatic transmission. The seller notes that the fuel tank was emptied, boiled, and coated, a new fuel pump has been installed, along with spark plugs, wires, batter, and brakes all around. They have also replaced the rear end and say that the car runs and drives very well. It is said that the car as a whole is 95% complete, but that is debatable.

The listing states that the interior is complete, but that must be a loose interpretation of the word. If POR15 on the floor is supposed to mean complete, then that must be the only determining factor. If not, the seats are old and original, torn and ripped in places, but still functional. The headliner looks like it is falling down and there are some other interior trim pieces out of place. You would want to see this car in person before buying.

According to the listing, the right rear quarter panel needs work, but the photos show other areas that might need some work as well, especially around the tailgate. There are photos of the underside of the car and it shows that while there is some surface rust and original parts, work and replacement parts have been done and installed. This car would make a great daily driving project car at a good price.

    This is technically a Brookwood, note the side script. It was in the middle of the pecking order with Nomad at the top and Yeoman at the bottom.

    My father bought one of these new in 1958 and traded it in 1964. The floor in the back seat, driver side, collapsed under pressure of me standing on it in one centered place while reaching over the back of the front seat. The car had gotten soaked in a thunderstorm, windows down, in 1962; the rain water wasn’t bailed out and allowed to “evaporate”. Unfortunately, the floor evaporated as well in two years time.

    Any one know why California had one piece bumpers while other states bumpers were in pieces? its something I’ve always been curious about. This wagon could be nice with a bit of work just so long as you can buy it right.
