Here are a couple of pix of Ben Fisher's red '59 Tbird Hardtop. A nice looking Tbird!

Nice hardtop!! :)

Boy, that red paint really makes a statement on the 1958-60 body!! :cool:

Still trying to figure out the wheel covers...

The wheel covers are '61 Galaxie.

In that red with bright chrome contrast your 59 really does "pop". If side spear tip chrome from a 59 was mountable on my 60 it would be there. Is a trim feature that is perfect for Squarebirds.
Picture taken from rear seat of dash etc is good photography.

Love the red!! :D I agree about the chrome spear tips. I like that on the 59!

I have seen the chrome spearpoint on '60 Squarebirds before...

You can put the Spear Point on 58's and 60's but you have to modify the door for it to fit.

Daniel you are correct. Ray who would want to put a 59 chrome spear on a 60:eek:

I really like RED on the Birds.

Or...Who would want to make a '59 look like a '60? Answer... Someone who likes the long winged Tbird on the C column, and the chrome hash marks on the rear sides? Or someone who has a '60 and likes the chrome spear point of the '59?

Here is a pic of the '59 next to me at the VTCI Regional in April. At first, I thought it was a '60 that someone had added the spear point to. Until I looked at the rear and saw it only had 4 tail lights and not 6!

Personally I think the Spears on the '60 would look very nice. But then again I'm a lover of chrome.

I like the blue and white two tone on that 59/60

It seems to me that the 58-60 just lend themselves to the two-tone treatment. The body lines are so definite that the paint "fits".

Ray's is probably the best fit I have seen. :D

I like all the bling on the 60's the best, but am attracted to that spear point chrome!! That was an interesting combo on that 59. That's one way to do it! Lol.
