This 1958 Chevrolet Brookwood wagon checks all the right boxes for
a desirable classic. After all, the '58 Chevy was a single-year
design, and the station wagons were always an expensive buy (i.e.
rarer). So when an interesting classic like this is also
affordable, it's hard not to get excited.
The 1958 Chevrolets are always an in-demand style. More than just
having single-year uniqueness, they tapped into the right feelings
of the era with a wide chrome front end, full-length trim, and
jet-inspired details. Plus, wagons like this Brookwood had some
cool details. It takes advantage of the set of rear doors by having
the wraparound tailfin taper into the design. This one already has
a custom/cool cruiser style that comes on day one. There are
upgrades like the creative full white pinstriping that's
underscoring most of the badging, and it coordinates with the white
on the roof and side trim insert. The tan paint has a hot rod kind
of matte finish, and this rides on 17-inch Boyd Coddington wheels.
So while the presentation is not perfect, it really does have the
perfect flair for those who are looking for a classic-style street
machine. Of course, there's also just plenty of us who see a lot of
potential in a distinctive Chevy grocery-getter offered for the
kind of price that leaves plenty of room to get creative.
The brown interior is complete and uniform. The seats and door
panels were updated later in life, and so they are good for today
and easy to update when you're ready. Details like the upgraded
steering wheel and auxiliary gauge trio make it a solid driver.
There's plenty of room for family and friends across the two wide
benches. There's also plenty of space for cargo room in the rear,
and the rear seat folds for even more versatility. Plus, the
tailgate is the desirable split unit. So this one has a useful side
for everything from being your classic car workhorse to being the
coolest tailgater at the ballgame.
We were still in the early era of Chevy's legendary small block V8
in 1958, and so it's great to see a 283 cubic-inch unit under the
hood. It fires up well and makes a dignified V8 tune out of the
newer dual exhaust. The car was driven about 100 miles to our
showroom. And we can understand how that can be an easy trip with
features like the Powerglide automatic transmission and modern
tires afforded by the wheel upgrade.
This is the distinct Chevy grocery-getter that is priced to leave
room in your budget so you can really enjoy putting your personal
touch on it. But before you let your imagination run wild, you need
to catch this deal. Call today!!!
