Don't think this is even remotely possible unless you offer the car as collateral to someone on a personal loan basis (give them the title). Which you can't do because you already have financed the car? Basically you'd have to deal with some kind of loan shark, as this type of loan would be incredibly risky. if they loan you X dollars and you hit more snags (gee, does this ever happen with old cars? ), then you'll need Y dollars more, and the lender has a car that still doesn't run if he wants to call in the loan or file a lien against you for his part of the value of the car.
Easiest way, if you can do the homework, is to run up the engine bill on your credit card, and once billed, find another credit card offer where you get zero interest if you transfer the balance from one card to the other.
Or better yet, button 'er up for the winter and start saving your money.

I agree, you'll be much better off restoring as your funds allow, not the thing to get in debt over.

Just want to say thank you to "texases" and "Mr Shiftright" for your suggestions on selling my Volare hood. I appreciate your help.

I'd think the windshield would be the same, but worth checking on a Chevy online forum or AACA Chevrolet forum. The instrument panel should be the same (except for minor trim, possibly, and also possibly color). I believe all the other sheetmetal is different from a '59 to a '60. Bumpers? Maybe, but I'd look hard at pics of each car first online. Good luck!

I believe that compound wrap windshield is the same on all 1959 GM cars except for the Corvette and Eldorado Brougham.
