The Walk-Around & Drive-By

For 1958, Chevrolet would introduce an entirely reengineered and redesigned full-size car. It would be a clean break from the Tri-Fives, offering a longer, lower, wider body, four headlights, a uniquely sculpted rear treatment that created a flatter beltline and the famous bullet tail light treatment. The topline Chevrolet would be known as the Impala, the Bel Air name being relegated to a trim package. The new Chevrolet would ride on a new frame with a chassis that could be sprung with an air-ride suspension system, and it would be the first year customers could opt for a big-block engine. Measuring out to 348 CI, it was capable of delivering up to 315 HP from a near NASCAR-spec engine setup. More civilized versions provided 250, 280 and 305 HP.


This particular 1958 Impala convertible is equipped with the 348/280 HP V-8, as indicated by the Tri-Power induction system. Backed by an automatic transmission, this Impala is very well equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows, the Wonderbar radio with the front-rear speaker control, an in-dash clock, the Chevrolet-branded dash-mounted compass and the tissue dispenser. A unique and rare option for a convertible is the Harrison air conditioning system. Rolling on BF Goodrich Silvertown wide whitewall tires with steel wheels and full-size wheel covers, this Impala is striking in its light salmon color and extensive brightwork jewelry all around. An AACA Senior National First Prize Winner for 1999, the car presents beautifully.

While 1957 was supposed to see an all-new full-size Chevrolet, the fates were against the debut, and the world had to wait until 1958. However, most agree it was worth the wait, as the new Chevrolet captured hearts aplenty through new styling, engineering and performance attributes. The delay also allowed Chevrolet a late arrival against Ford and Plymouth’s all-new cars for 1957, which created a kind of buzz for the Bowtie brand.
