Another 59 Dodge coupe is heading to Skandinavia next week.
Finally find what I have been looking for about 29 years when I sold my 59 Coronet Lancer.
Found her for sale at So Cal classics. It is pure barn find, Driven last in 70's, typical California rust, trunk floor and front of rear wheel opening.
Engine frozen radiator missing but other wise quite complete.
I am really satisfied with nice patina it has. This car wont be ruined with new chrome, paint and bling bling

Nice find!
What color was it originally where the camouflage-looking paint is?
Are you going to fix it up as far as getting it running/driving?

I didn't think California was that rusty of climate, unless it was by the coast?

I entirely agree, beautiful car as it sits, just do the necessities to make it a reliable driver. The car world doesn't need more bling it needs more tatty original old drivers. Personally I've always found those kind of cars way more interesting.

Congrats, great find!

Sure it will be fixed and maybe running this fall. I already got donor 413+torqueflite waiting + everything from my 61 4d NY, bigger brakes and stuff...
Ordered lot of parts from Rockauto to come with it. + got hub caps, tail lights and so on from ebay.
I already got 2 FLs restored to show. I've been workin with my 300G for about 5 years and when its done, can I use it as daily driveron a nice summer day? No! (what a waiste of time) I have got enough of it for a little time
This car will be mechanically good as usual but I want keep the 59 year old patina, just fix and repair what needs to be repaired and wipe the dirt off.
lower paint is quite bad and may need some attention.

Nice find! Folks don't realize that CA and other Southwestern cars generally do have some rust too, unless they've spent their entire life in Death Valley, or Palm Desert or super dry areas like Tuscon or Phoenix AZ and the like. The only truly rust free car we've ever had was a '56 Olds 98 Holiday that had never left Phoenix (pic). Otherwise there'a almost always some patching up to do. Regardless, you'll have some fun with this one!

Yes and even in Southwest people do wash their cars. Some cars of the 50's are not in good reputation to hold water outside.
Especially old Mopars Trunk, window, door seals ant weather strips leak. People are lazy to wipe dry trunk floor.
It s man made rust in this car too

Why I said that above, that I thought California was a rust free climate, is because as far as I know my Belvedere has spent its entire life around the Sacramento, CA area. I have checked that car out thoroughly, and besides surface rust, there is no rust cancer.

Maybe some cars, even ones out west, differ due to their owners washing them a lot and not drying them off...

Good point, some people really believe they are doing their cars something good by frequently washing them. Unbelieveable but true.

And no, there is no "drying off" after washing, where the cars rust you can't dry it off. A car starts rusting from inside out and at the seams, under the chrome and weatherstripping.

I know a guy who washed a car (60 full size Dodge coupe) down the drain.

I will probably do the same to my '59 Dodge 2dr HT. Get it safe and enjoy it.

Some time has passed since nyt 59 Royal arrived. It was in July and it was the hottest day of the year when me and my friend drove to pick it up from the carrier.
I almost got a stroke when winching it up to the trailer
