1958 Chevrolet Impala -- Additional Info:

This 1958 Chevrolet Impala represents a highly desirable inaugural model of a one-year design. And this restored coupe has the best of everything - from the glossy blue paint, to the big-block tri-power under the hood. Every time you take this hardtop out in the sunshine it's going to impress you. The silver blue paint with white roof and matching whitewall tires has a radiance about it that will get noticed from blocks away. This glow is because there has... been a nice recent investment in a professional respray. So you get classic color but a modern clearcoat shine. They even added a Continental kit, too. The car is a visual delight with awesome details everywhere you look. Check out the chrome grille that runs from end to end that leads the way for this lower, wider, and longer '58 Chevy. There are also nice details like the fender skirts and dual spotlights that are on display. The hardtop profile with wraparound glass front and rear makes the top-of-the-line Impala look fast standing still. And where this roof meets the rear quarters, it begins the trim line that seamlessly wraps around the taillights for an appearance like tailfins turned on their side - a very cool iconic touch. So, it's amazing something so intricate would be a one-year-only design. But it's this rarity and distinction that keep the '58 a sought-after coupe in the market. Tri-tone interiors were this Impala's calling card, and the white, black, and blue is a nicely restored example of a factory-correct package. Everything from the bright insert in the door panel, to the tight headliner appears nicely preserved. There's even a collapsible armrest so that the rear passengers can make the most out of this full-size coupe. Up front, the dashboard is a big step forward compared to 1957, and the correct dual-spoke jet-age inspired steering wheel is beautifully finished with lots of bright details. The speedometer is as long as the horizon, and it's nicely rendered with crisp numbers on black background. So yes, this is pure rolling nostalgia, right down to the tissue holder. But vintage motoring does not have to mean vintage tunes. That's why there's an AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glovebox. The honest-looking black air cleaner is almost hiding the factory beast within. 1958 is a very desirable year because it was the first time the big block V8 was available in passenger cars. If you were really lucky, a 348 cubic-inch motor came with the tri-power (triple two-barrel carburetor) like you see here. The period-correct block has a terrific look as the bold orange radiates from within the dark engine bay. And this looks quite authentic, right down to the details like the GM hoses and generator. As you look at the undercarriage photos, the clean presentation reveals more about the investment in the quality restoration. More than just look good, this classic was meant to drive. The big block makes a nice low rumble from the dual exhaust; the power steering makes turning effortless; and the column-shifted three-speed gives you a great classic way to control it all. Complete with owner's manual, it's getting harder to find these single-year Impala hardtops, especially one that has been expertly prepared just the way you want it.
