Before the Bubbletops came the Flattops. With its “eyebrows” over the headlights, batwing-like rear lines and cat’s eye taillamps, the 1959 Chevrolets were the company’s most outrageous designs up to that point and they became memorable for their styling. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to offer this Chevrolet Impala Sports Sedan, 4 door no post hardtop, flattop – when was the last time you’ve seen one restored in this stunning condition!?!

Assembled on or about September 1, 1958 at General Motors’ South Gate facility in the greater Los Angeles, California and had the following options – tinted glass and a padded instrument panel as optional equipment. However, in 1996, this example underwent a three-year, complete restoration worth almost $60,000 and finished in a Snowcrest White over Roman Red exterior with red interior. After restoration, this Impala featured body sill moldings, rear wheel skirts, dual spotlights on the front fenders, dual sideview mirrors, dual rear antennas, a tissue dispenser, door handle shields, front grille guard, sun visors, cigarette lighter, wheel spinners, front grill guard and a rarely seen Arc 2500 dropdown 45rpm record player!

Its two-tone paint and trim are in excellent overall condition, while all of the glass panels, including the Vista Panoramic windshield and wrap-around rear window, are clear, intact and haze-free. The car’s lights are also in fantastic condition but the headlights come with “eyelids.” The car rolls on Coker Classic wide whitewalls, sized 225/75R14 and surrounding silver wire wheels and wheel spinners. The tires and wheels look great. All of the car’s body panels are straight and solid. The trunk, which can hold up to 32 cubic feet, is very tidy and includes a full-sized spare tire. The engine bay is also very tidy, the battery is in very good condition and the bumpers sparkle in sunlight.

Under the big red hood is Chevy’s venerable 283 CID Turbo-Fire V-8 engine. In this car, it’s backed by a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission and a 3.55:1 rear end.

Inside, the ed textured fabric/red vinyl (code 873) interior is in excellent overall condition. The complementing red carpet is in similar condition while the gray headliner is in very good order. The sharp looking contoured red instrument panel, with its four, deeply recessed gauges that prevented glare face the driver while the original, red, two-spoke steering wheel is present and looks terrific. However, the fuel gauge is stuck reading full. The inner door panels are in overall great order, as are the mirrors and shift lever. Completing the interior is a factory pushbutton AM radio with front and rear speakers.

The 1959 Chevrolet Impala was redesigned and was a one year body style and well know for its tailights, using a new X-frame chassis, the roofline was three inches lower, bodies were two inches wider and curb weight increased. Its tailfins protruded outward, rather than upward. The famous ’59 taillights were a large “teardrop” design at each side, and two slim-wide nonfunctional front air intake scoops were added just above the grille.

The Impala became a separate series, adding a four-door hardtop and four-door sedan to the two-door Sport Coupe and convertible. Standard were front and rear armrests, an electric clock, dual sliding sun visors, and crank-operated front vent windows. A contoured hooded instrument panel held deep-set gauges. A six-way power seat was a new option, as was “Speedminder,” for the driver to set the speedometer at a specific speed. A buzzer sounded if the pre-set was exceeded.

This would be a great weekend cruiser in the spring or autumn and it has enough interior room to take the neighbors to dinner or to haul the grandchildren to get ice cream.

Documentation includes a photo album with “before,” “during” and “after” images, framed note cards with exterior and interior details plus likely build date, original owner’s manual, original full-line Chevrolet brochure, original Chevrolet service news and a logbook started on August 26, 1996, detailing the restoration and amounts spent.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer since restoration shows 2,223 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!

Competition to this Chevrolet in 1959 included Ford’s Galaxie Club Sedan and Plymouth’s Fury sedans.
