The Walk-Around & Drive-By


About this car:

For 1957, Chevrolet offered a spectacularly restyled and reengineered lineup of full-size cars trying hard to compete with Plymouth and Ford, both of which introduced entirely new cars for the model year. In a rare moment, Ford outsold Chevrolet, and Plymouth edged closer to Bowtie sales, creating quite the ruckus at Chevrolet and General Motors. Fortunately, an all-new GM full-size lineup was coming, just delayed for a year.

By 1958, Chevrolet introduced not just a restyled full-size car, but one using an entirely new frame, suspension system, steering system and an optional 348 CI V-8 engine. Chevrolet also introduced the Impala as the topline model, offering buyers a variety of body styles, an ocean of optional extras and a lengthy roster of standard features. While the Impala indeed represented a premium price over the newly minted, lesser-priced Delray and Biscayne, it offered a lot for the money, and those willing and able to shell out a little more coin could enjoy the NASCAR feel of the big-block engine and the thrill of open-air motoring.

With this 1958 Chevrolet Impala Convertible, the 348 CI engine is fitted with the optional Tri-Power carburetion and a Powerglide automatic transmission, along with power brakes and power steering, all conspiring to create a wonderfully effortless driving experience. Chrome and brightwork, exemplary of what is possibly the zenith of the chrome era, shines effortlessly against the black paint, with a power-operated convertible top closing out or welcoming in the world. The red interior features tri-tone seating inserts, factory air conditioning, power windows, a radio and an in-dash clock. Highly detailed, this Impala personifies late ’50s middle class living at its finest.
