By 1960 the entry-level "big" Chevy was the Biscayne. The only sidetrim apart from the fin trim was a hint of the "jetplane".
The cars were usually delivered to the dealers with hubcaps safely kept inside the trunk lest they got dented. I am still searching for detailed reference to model them.
Thanks for watching.

Beautifully detailed model/rendering...not sure about the angled view, however.

They were also covered with shipping wax and all cars to be fitted with wheel covers and not hubcaps had black not car color wheels. The shipping wax was like a mist that fogged them. It was then simply wiped off with cheese cloth to brighten up the new acryllic enamel paint. The deep dish of the new in 1957 14 inch wheels really began to show up by 1960 but the safety ridge to keep tubeless tires from coming off the rims when flat would have to wait for Chrysler. Certainly by 1966 it was a feature of GM rims. They also were much thinner metal than in 1956. The fenders were not. A 10 pound sledge hammer can barely move 1964 Chevrolet front fender metal. Panel pounding was replaced by skins (whole quarter panels, door skins and rocker panels that could be spot welded on and then ground and filled to match. The front fenders and fascia were all bolt on. The tail pipe looks wrong on this one. (aftermarket). They had a nice curl turn down that fit exactly into the corner of the car and only a bevel stuck down, (defintely not back) By 1959 some of the cars with wheel covers had long thin tire valves not the short connical ones of hubcap cars that required extensions to put air in with the wheel comvers on.

Ah, the good old days when different types of cars actually looked different!
Nice touch, posing the car as if it were lifting off into the sky.

You have picked a great era modelling these amazing cars. Would be a great subject for a coffee table book. Fine work!

I don't care how correct they are ( and that's not meant to be a slight to Tallpindo's observations in any way)....the visual effect and the work that you put into each image is outstanding. As for the angle......well I just figure this one was had it's home in San Francisco.....( with the front wheels correctly turned outward I might add LOL)

Thanks all for the replies and thanks Tallpindo for the crits. I have corrected the rear panel (Biscaynes had no chrome on it) and added the dogdish caps. You can see the new images in my gallery at http://www.palat.com.br/cars.html

Just super work on this!! I always loved this design and year of Chev. Great to see someone putting superlative effort into modeling something besides exoticars and the newer stuff.
