Got an email to join this board. This is great. I am usually over at the PY online forums, but now I have a better place to go for the 59 community.

Here's the skinny. About 10 years ago I was going to a Land O Lakes GTO event. I was reading the classifieds on the way when I saw an ad for a 59 catalina. I called and went to look at it instead of going to the event. Drove it home.

It is an Oklahoma 3 owner car. White/Red interior 2 dr hardtop, 389 two barrel auto, air, brakes, steering, radio delete, back-up light delete. I have not had the time I wish I could put into it. I have cut a coil in the front added american racing rims and did a bunch of work to make it mechanically sound. I have a 95% done .060 over 455 and th400 to swap out but just have not got there yet. The 389 just turned 100K and is a bit tired. It smokes and leaks. When I put the engine I plan to add disc brakes to the front.

The car is very solid. The interior is near perfect.

Great to have you aboard! I'd love to see pictures of your car!

How much the the 1 coil chop lower your car? I chopped 1/2 a coil and it doesn't appear to be any lower.
