RealRides of WNY - 1959 Chevy

If you’re gonna get a photo of the back end of a 1959 Chevy Parkwood, I guess you’d call this the money shot. It was all about the fins back in the late 1950s, and the ’59 Chevy and ’59 Cadillac were just about as finny as they came. The Parkwood was one of four Chevy wagon nameplates for 1959. In ascending order, you had your choice of a Brookwood, Parkwood, Kingswood, or Nomad. That Nomad, just like the ’58 model, wasn’t the snazzy two-door version of the Tri-Five years, but a trim upgrade from the Kingswood. True Nomad aficionados still shudder at the use of the nameplate on these four-door poseurs. (See the comparisons below.) Saw this one last summer at the International Station Wagon Club’s national meet in Amherst.
