Bought one of those, a '59 with same color combo, about 15 years ago. Probably one of the nicest looking cars ever. And as good looking as it was, that's how horrible it was to drive. You wandered down the road, sawing the wheel side to side to keep it in a straight line. High speed turns were white knuckle, those beautiful wide whitewall bias ply tires were terrible, same for the brakes.

Sold it after 2 years and bought a '67, which was an absolutely wonderful car, for the same price. Four wheel independent suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes. Should have kept that one.
