The Impala was introduced for the 1958 model year, as top of the line Bel Air hardtops and convertibles. From the windshield pillar rearward, the 1958 Bel Air Impala differed structurally from the lower priced Chevrolet models. Hardtops had a slightly shorter greenhouse and longer rear deck. The 1958 Chevrolet models were longer, lower, and wider than their predecessors. The 1958 model year was the first with dual headlamps. The tailfins of the 1957 were replaced by deeply sculptured rear fenders. Impalas had three taillights each side, while lesser models had two, and wagons just one. The Impalas included crossed flag insignias above the side moldings, as well as bright rocker moldings and dummy rear-fender scoops.
This amazing survivor still wears its original paint. The interior is all original and is in great condition. Equipped with the 145 horsepower “Blue Flame” 6 cylinder engine, and Powerglide transmission, quality and originality make this Sport Coupe a fine investment, and the perfect addition to any collection.
