Check over the Sheet Metal real good including the underside. Body-wise, the '58 is by itself and not much will interchange. Mechanically, many parts will interchange with the '58 to '64 Full Size models.

If you buy it and need parts, just let us know.

The Body looks to be pretty solid as far as I can tell by the pictures. Right, by the Emblems it also tells us that it was originally a 6-Cylinder. Has a non-original Interior and a non-original Radiator. A 305 is a much newer engine and nothing great, but if it runs, well that is good.

Looks like a pretty interesting car, really. What would be your plans for it?

My only '58 is a parts car and most of the Interior parts are gone, including the seats, but if you google "58 Biscayne Interior" and click onto "Images" you should be able to find some good pictures there.

No sorry, not a good one. Have you tried to buy a new one?

Try your local Auto Glass shop as well. You may be able to get one without a shipping charge.
