Built by the Chevrolet division of General Motors and introduced for the 1958 model year, the NEW '58 Impala was quoted as "Longer and Lower, Wider and Strong" in Chevrolet literature.
The Impala nameplate was first unveiled in 1958 as an upscale trim option on the popular Chevrolet BelAir series. Chevorlet's most expensive offering, the upscale Impala didn't feature BelAir badging anywhere. Certainly aided by the extensive redesign for Chevrolet's '58 model line-up, The Impala did so well that GM brass gave the green light for the Impala marque to become its own model for the following year.
The Impala nameplate is unmistakable! These crossed flags and Impala marque were first unveiled in 1958. Over the last 2 years, this car has received a great deal of restoration work, including an attractive interior restoration in the correct red vinyl with silver-laden multi-colored inserts. The finish was also restored and in exceptional condition, with some minor imperfection to note (chip-touch up, etc). Altogether, this is a very attractive Impala ready to own, show, and enjoy!

Making their debut in 1958, the triple taillights would soon become an impala trademark for decades to come. These were easily discerned from the lesser model BelAir's dual tail light configuration.
The undercarriage appears to be clean and detailed throughout, indicative of a dry climate example.
