Some say the 58 Impala initiated the beginning of the Muscle car era when high performance big blocks and posi-traction differentials became serious options. Top that off with glamorous restyling as compared to the ever popular "Tri-Five" (1955 to 1957) Belair models. Chevrolet promoted the new design concept as "Lower and Longer, Wider and Stronger...Deep Down New"... Chevy design engineers were certainly busy in the late 50's, from the sharp fins of 1957 to the gull wings of 1958 and onto the super flowing wings of the 1959 model year, the 58 Model year stands alone as a transition of things to come. Ah the "Good Old Days"...

Now after taking a moment to step back in time, let's take a look at this beautifully restored and well appointed specimen in its all original glory! Factory Options include  Rio Red "923" exterior, Tri-Color Red "854" interior, 348 4bbl 250HP V8, Turbo Glide Automatic Transmission, Posi-Traction Differential, Power Steering and Power Brakes. Read on for more...

Resting on well documented, thorough and complete "body off" restoration of a rock solid un-restored original that began in 1992 when the body was removed from the chassis. The chassis/frame was completely stripped, refurbished as needed, powder coated and refitted with all newly rebuilt suspension components. The original 348 4bbl 250HP V8 was bored 30 over rebuilt and balanced along with the factory Turbo Glide Transmission and Posi-Traction rear differential. The body was stripped and treated to bare metal "Acid Dip" prior final prep and correct exterior Rio Red refinish. Keep in mind, during this process, every effort was made to retain/refurbish "All Original" major components...

Once the rolling chassis and body off sheet metal refinish was complete, the body was returned to the frame and it was stored away, covered and protected for 14 years. In 2006, after a long rest, the tedious final assembly resumed using all of the original components including smaller items such as carburetion, power brake booster, radiator, gas tank, bumpers, grill, all stainless trim (inside & out),  wiper motor, heater, gauges, door handles, etc. Almost every part is the original piece that came on this car. Correct 2 1/4 Wide Whitewall tires on 14" chrome reverse wheels and included factory hub caps that can easily be applied, if you so desire. I think you get the idea...

In closing, Simply Beautiful, Rock Solid, Whistle Straight and Rare Matching Numbers. Nicely restored and honest specimens rarely become available, don't miss it... Good Day, Paul Harvey!
