If you desire a big Fifties convertible and don't want to take out a second mortgage for a '57 Chevy, this big Eighty-Eight convertibles are a great alternative.
All were well styled, built like Sherman tanks and had powerful V-8s under their expansive hoods.
Unlike their predecessors in 1958, the 1959 models, while still large and now sporting vestigial fins, seemed smaller, with a lower stance and sides devoid of excess chrome and trim, and had a "linear look." But they really were bigger than the 1958 models, with overall length up substantially; the Eighty-Eight models were nearly 10 inches longer and the well-appointed Ninety-Eight about seven inches longer overall.

Rebuilt Engine and Transmission within the last 24 months.

Brakes:
The braking system had four-wheel drums with power assist.
Exterior:
New Vinyl top
Interior:
Get behind the massive steering wheel, and you'll have a symmetrical dashboard design staring you straight in the eyes.
It's typical of 1950s dashes and positively stylish, with legible controls, radio mounted in the center and large glove compartment, with a metal door, of course.

The steering wheel was ahead of its time when airbags were the things of fairy tales.
Engineers designed a deep Safety Vee into the wheel, meaning the center hub was away from the driver's chest in the event of a crash.
