The eventual replacement for Chevrolet’s top-of-the-line Bel-Air model was the Impala, which debuted in 1958 as the Bel-Air Impala, one of five GM 50th Anniversary models. The Impala became Chevrolet’s most expensive full-size car through 1965. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this 1958 Bel-Air Impala Sport Coupe with the rarely ordered Tri-Power 348 CID V-8.  The previous owner of this car since 2004 had the car restored, including an engine rebuild, new paint and interior. This car is also included with tons of neat Chevrolet print material from the era of this first year Impala!

This example left GM’s Norwood, Ohio factory wearing a white roof over Cay Coral paint (code 932A) with Coral interior (code 861). The car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order, there are some paint blemishes under close inspection. The windows are clear and crack-free and in better-than-decent condition. The easiest way to identify an Impala from the rear was to look for its symmetrical triple taillights. Those taillights and the rest of the car’s lights are clear and crack-free and look great.

The car’s bodywork is straight and solid, its chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body and are in very good condition overall with only some minor blemishes. The car has dual rear antennas, a common feature for the era. The engine bay is very tidy, the battery appears in good order and the car rolls on Firestone Deluxe Champion wide whitewall tires, size 7.50-14 at all four corners.

Under the hood and breathing through dual exhausts, is the rebuilt W-series “Super Turbo Thrust” W-series 348 CID V-8, also called Tri-Power due to its triple two-barrel carburetor set-up. Under normal driving, only the center two-barrel operates. Push the accelerator past 60 degrees and a vacuum switch opens the other two carbs. This engine with Tri-Power makes 280 horsepower. Backing this engine, which was rebuilt, is Turboglide, a continuously variable automatic transmission known for its smooth operation since the standard gear shifts were eliminated. Driver convenience features include power steering.

Inside, the car’s handsome Coral interior (code 861) is in over very good condition. The front and rear bench seats are done in coral vinyl with three-tone cloth inserts, red, black and gray stripes. The rear seat has a fold-down center armrest, too. The matching coral carpet is in similar shape to the seats. The headliner and two-spoke steering wheel are in very good order while the metal instrument panel and inner door liners are all in excellent shape. There is an aftermarket engine temperature gauge mounted beneath the dash (note:  wipers, speedo and fuel gauge are inop).  The column-mounted gearshifter looks great and an AM radio rounds off the interior.

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 wheelbase of the Impala was longer than the lower priced models, although the overall length was identical. Interiors held a two-spoke steering wheel and color-keyed door panels with brushed aluminum trim. No other series included a convertible.

The 1958 Chevrolet models were longer, lower, and wider than its 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.

The standard perimeter-type frame was abandoned, replaced by a unit with rails laid out in the form of an elongated “X.” Chevrolet claimed that the new frame was 30 percent stronger, offered increased torsional rigidity and allowed for a lower placement of the passenger compartment. This was a transitional step between traditional construction and the later fully unitized body/chassis, the body structure was strengthened in the rocker panels and firewall. Other features included a two-piece driveshaft, full coil-spring suspension, optional Level-Air with four-link rear suspension, Safety Plate glass all around, and fold-down rear center armrest on sport coupes.

A coil spring suspension replaced the previous year’s rear leaf springs, and an air ride system was optional. A “W” block 348 CID Turbo-Thrust V8 was optional, producing 250, 280 or 315 horsepower. A total of 142,592 sports coupes were built. The 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Impala helped Chevrolet regain the number one production spot in that recession year.

This car has extensive documentation – original owner’s manual; original advance service information; original “The Chevy Story 1911-1958” booklet with color cover; original Turboglide Operation booklets, parts I-IV; original Diagnosis Procedures Guide; original 1958 Chevrolet Accessories Guide; original Chevrolet Kar-Kleen guide; a foldable weights & measures conversion chart; original Servicing the Turboglide transmission guide; four 1958 Chevrolet newsletters from Feld Chevrolet in Maplewood, Missouri; original 1958 Impala sales brochure; the Automobile Story, a resource booklet for fourth through eighth grade teachers; and more.

Two-door coupe competition to this Bel-Air Impala in 1958 included Ford’s Fairlane 500 Club Victoria, Plymouth’s Fury Golden Commando and Pontiac’s Bonneville Catalina.

If you desire a late 1950s cruiser with some panache, power and performance, you could hardly go wrong with this Bel-Air Impala. Come by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today and look this one over.
