That. Is. Fantastic.
Did these come as 2-door wagons or converted from a 4-door? Love it in either case.
(How does one change the back tire though?)
It’s easy, you just have to unbolt the entire suspension and drop the axle …
They did come as two doors. There are more pictures.
1960 was the last year for the big Chevy two-door wagon. Some of the major sheetmetal pressings (lower rear quarters) were shared with the El Camino, which made making these a bit more rational.
Chris, 1960 was the final year for the full-size Chevy two-door wagon.
There were Chevelle two-door wagons in 1964-65. And of course the Vega Kammback, which I once owned.
Lover of two-door wagons and owner of ’57 Chevy Handyman (you guessed it, a two-door wagon.)
Oops…sorry Paul, guess we were responding at the same time.
“How does one change the back tire though?”
Landing gear down, check.
Imagine having some sort of a low rider hydraulic gear/axle extender that works like landing gear when the car’s on a jack!
“It’s really fast, but I keep having to replace the front tires.”
“So there I was, cruising at Mach 3 and 38 thousand, when the *fan belt* went out on me!”
That standard ’60 Chevy side trim was just begging for someone to do this! Even the lowly Biscayne (and Brookwood wagon) had the chromed jet.
CC effect strikes again,I just bought an early Christmas present for my nephew a 1/72 P40 construction kit with Flying Tigers or RAF shark’s teeth decals
I can’t remember which P40 it was(Warhawk,Tomahawk,Kittyhawk) and I’ve wrapped it up for Christmas now!
It’s been done before, even has the correct insignia
I like it, but it might scare the hell out of little kids. If it’s on hydraulics, it would be a cool effect to see it rise up as it gains speed and the front end lift as if it’s starting to ‘take off’.
Really quite awesome!!
Though Bob retired from the Air Force he never quite let go of his old career.
Mmmm, loving the hidden rear wheel; the whole car looks pretty good actually.
This is great .
So wrong, yet so right!
Wonder what kind of exhaust system it has on it. With those set of teeth, it must growl! Very nicely done regardless. . .
