  1. I wonder how many of the 836 cars have survived. On one hand I read on many “for sale” websites stuff like “less than 40 exist” and so on. That challenged me. On the other hand, I’m considering buying a Sklyark and am wondering which colors & interiors are rare for a Skylark.

     

    So I've started a list of Skylarks who have survived and created statistics:

    https://www.hometownbuick.com/1954-buick-skylark-how-many-of-them-still-exist/

     

    Does anybody know of other 1954 Buick Skylarks that are not on the list yet? 🙂

    The 1960 Chevrolet Showroom Album is one of the best sources for info and pictures for owners and fans of 60s Chevys. It was made especially for showroom use to show potential buyers the beauty, engineering features, interior trims and much more of the new model line. Many dealerships and salesmen dumped these books after the model year - that makes these books rare to find - and expensive!

     

    The 1960s Chevy Showroom Album 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.

    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.

    The 1959 Chevrolet Autocessories Book is the guide to almost any optional equipment that Chevy offered for passenger cars and trucks in 59. It has three sections:

    • Passenger Car Options (72 pages)
    • Truck Options (47 pages)
    • Maintenance Options (40 pages)

     

    Each accessory is shown with a picture and is described with a short text. There are also part numbers, in case you want to upgrade your 59 Chevy with factory correct optional equipment.

     

    This book was not given to new car buyers or prospects. It was provided exclusively to dealers and salesmen. Most of them dumped the original after the model year change. That makes this book ultra rare and expensive! But one was saved and I've created reprints so that you can enjoy the content for much less money!

     

    The 1959 Chevrolet Autocessories Book reprint was made with love and passion for 59 Chevrolets, keeping the original data, but transferred to modern printing standards such as colors and formats. Size and colors are slightly different. Please keep in mind that even the best reprint is based on material being over 50 years old and therefore has imperfections.

     

    What you’ll receive: A brand new, high quality reprint. This is a hardcover book with 164 pages (incl. cover). Size: 11,69 inches (29.7 cm) wide and 8.27 inches (21 cm) high.

    The 1958 Chevrolet Autocessories Book is the book to use as reference when it comes to accessories and optional equipment for 59 Chevy Cars & Trucks. It also shows maintenance options for new car buyers to keep their car in tip top shape. 

     

    Each accessory comes with:

    • Picture / Graphic

    This helps you to identify accessories on your 59 Chevy and therefore verify if your classic car is factory correct equipped. Plus, you can see how to upgrade your car and keep its authenticity.

    The 1958 Chevrolet Autocessories Book was not available to the public; this book was supposed to stay in the dealership. Most salesmen dumped all books after the model year change. That makes this cool 1958 Chevrolet Accessories Book very rare - and expensive. But one was saved and I've created high quality reprints of it.

     

    The reprint was made with love and passion for 58 Chevrolets, keeping the original data, but transferred to modern printing standards such as colors and formats. Size and colors are slightly different. Please keep in mind that even the best reprint is based on material being over 50 years old and therefore has imperfections.

    If you have a 1957 Chevrolet or collect cool literature for 57 Chevys, you probably have seen those beautiful dealer postcards. Dealerships and salesmen of the 1950s used these postcards to win new prospects.

    The postcard size is: 5.51″ wide x 3.27″ high (metric system: 14.0 x 8.3 cm).
