Two-Tone Cruiser Rare Beauty
Introduced in 1958 as Chevrolet’s mid-priced station wagon, Brookwoods were trimmed in line with Chevrolet’s mid-priced Chevrolet Biscayne models. The Brookwood offered for the 1958 model year was a 4-door station wagon, available in either six- or nine-passenger models. In 1959 Chevrolet eliminated its entry-level Delray series and the Biscayne became Chevrolet’s least expensive series. Tied to the Biscayne, the Del Ray Brookwood became the entry-level (and least expensive) wagon offered by Chevrolet. Brookwoods were now available in two- or four-door body styles, both in six-passenger configuration only. The two-door variant would become the basis for the new-for-1959 El Camino. Unlike the Brookwood, the El Camino could be ordered in trim levels corresponding to the entire full-sized car line including the Impala.
This 1958 Chevy Brookwood wagon has had a deluxe two tone paint job which shows beautifully. It runs and drives fantastic. It has a very healthy 350 V8 and automatic transmission. It drives like a dream and is the perfect blend of good and evil. The rest-mod is subtle and tasteful.
