This 1958 Chevrolet Impala is truly a tidy classic. It has a tidy
look with the bright paint; a tidy interior with plenty of classic
details; and a tidy engine bay with a year-correct V8 power. While
all of that is quite eye-appealing, there's also an interesting
double dual-barrel carb setup on the big block to get your heart
The '58 Impala is always a great decision for a distinctive
classic. After all, it's the debut year for this legendary Chevy
name, and it's also a single-year design. They made sure this one
stood out from the crowd even more with an investment in a glossy
salmon-like orange color. It captures the 1950s style correctly
while also being one of the boldest coupes on the road. Dual
aerials, half-chrome headlights, and fender skirts are all part of
this bolder cruising attitude. Of course, what really makes a coupe
like this stand out is the brightwork. It looks quite nice on the
full-length trim, wraparound rear bumper, and all those jet-age
details. And we can tell of a quality restoration when the body is
super straight, even gaps, and everything is aligned to give it the
look the designers dreamed of.
A pillarless hardtop gives everyone a clear view of the inside,
you'll be glad this looks so nice. It's a bold package made even
more striking with the '58 Impala's hallmark triple-tone cloth
inserts on the seats. All the right classic elements are there,
including the artful steering wheel, bright trim, and a rising rear
center armrest. Even the factory AM radio is still there for
display. Plus, there are provisions for an air conditioning upgrade
(will need servicing before blowing cold again.)
The engine bay is also part of this show-worthy package. You've got
a tidy look and some great details of bold Chevy orange and gloss
black presentation. You'll also love telling people that this has a
year-correct 348 cubic-inch motor at its heart. It's also fun to
show off the distinct set of double two-barrel Rochester
carburetors nestled under that big air cleaner. The car was
upgraded to a 12-volt system to help keep it a strong running that
was made for driving. It's even fitted with powerglide automatic
transmission and power brakes to keep it period-correct while also
a terrific cruiser.
This is a tidy, distinct, and sought-after classic coupe. So when
it also has been done to such a high standard, you know you need to
take this one home. Call today!!!
