The 1958 Chevrolet Impala is always in demand because it's the first year for the name. But nearly 65 years later, there is a wide swath in the level of quality. So that's why it's great to find a hardtop that's fresh over every inch (even the undercarriage.) And it has all the best features for a driver's coupe, like a tri-power big block, four-on-the-floor, and the confident feeling of a fresh and thorough restoration.
A quality car starts with the right fundamentals. The trim tag tells us this is wearing its factory-correct Snowcrest White. It's a high-quality application that's smooth to the touch... almost like a fresh snowfall with a frozen layer on top. In fact, this is well-presented right down to the details. The weather-stripping is pliable, the glass is clear, and headlights and taillights are clean. And we know you noticed the brightwork. It rivals the paint for shin with the wraparound bumpers, Cadillac-like grille, and full-length trim. We especially like the delicate line that helps to show off the sharply-formed tailfins. It reminds you that stylists were kings in the 1950s.
The factory-correct red interior almost looks like it's radiating from within this car, and so it begs people to come closer. And since a pillar-less hardtop gives everyone a clear view of the inside, you'll be glad that everything from the dash to carpeting looks so nice. Plus, the seats have a beautifully crisp style to the Impala's cool tri-tone cloth insert that breaks up the vibrant sea of red. This is a full-sized Chevy, and so it's no trouble to carry everyone in style and comfort. There's even a well-integrated AM/FM digital tuner so that you can give them upgraded driving music. But no matter how many people are along for the ride, you're going to love the sensation of getting in the driver's seat. It feels like a time warp as you grip the thin and artful steering wheel, and the floor shifter lets you know you're in for a good time.
The engine bay continues this car's ultra-clean and correct style. It gets the vintage details right with the classic battery topper, GM hoses, and 348 callouts on the bright orange motor. And the large honest-looking black air intake almost looks like it's trying to cover the beast within. The '58 Impala is beloved for being the first big block Chevy car, and those who ordered the 348 cubic-inch V8 correctly would also get tri-power. So you'll love unbolting the air grabber at every car show just to showcase the triple set of Rochester dual-barrel carburetors. It fires up eagerly like a car that was carefully restored, and the dual exhaust gives a nice tune. You get full control over this classic with the four-speed manual transmission. This one is built to be a better all-around cruiser, and so they upgraded it in subtle ways. The front brakes are now modern discs, and the rear end is a stout Ford 9-inch unit. And those classic salt flat style wheels are a modern 18-inch size to fit ultra-grippy ZR-rated tires. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and an overall confident driving feeling make this sharp classic an excellent cruiser.
This is a tidy, distinct, and sought-after classic coupe. So when it also has been done to such a high standard, you know you need to take this one home. Call today!!!
