The Walk-Around & Drive-By


A first-year model featuring a concours body-off rotisserie restoration, a multi-carbureted factory big-block, excellent color selection and a look still fondly recalled from American Graffiti, this 1958 Chevrolet Impala Convertible is indeed a fabulous 1950s Chevrolet sport model that can hold its own in any setting. Changes were abundant in 1958 from every aspect. People wanted larger vehicles and the Impala was the best way to buy that from the Bowtie team. Meanwhile, engineers had also brought out the first of the brand’s soon-to-be-notorious big-block powerplants, and this car hosts the 348 CI Tri-Power V-8 engine. Under the hood, one sees the highly detailed engine compartment and the engine with the offset dual-snorkel air cleaner over a trio of Rochester 2-barrel carburetors and W-shaped valve covers. This car is also equipped with an automatic transmission and came with both power steering and power brakes.

The body is refinished in its original Onyx Black paint, accented by the year’s Impala-level premium chrome trim and a contrasting power-operated white convertible top. The interior is handsomely done in tri-tone red, black and silver vinyl and cloth seating, with options including the Wonderbar radio, chromed full-horn-ring steering wheel, an in-dash clock, a column-operated shifter and a rear seat Impala emblem.

From the oxide-primed floorboards to the detailed chassis and undercarriage, everything here was done with a sense of quality. The brightwork throughout shines, with the crossed-flag emblems, script Impala insignia, white-center side spear and lower rocker plates all adding to the class of this car. The final touches are the wide whitewall tires with correct spinner-style hubcaps. The Impala name would go on to become part of Chevrolet’s model lineup for decades to come, and this 1958 Chevrolet Impala Convertible is an excellent example of how it all began.
