Lot #1334 - The Impala was introduced in 1958 as the top option level for Bel Air coupes and convertibles. The "whole new look" 1958 was Bill Mitchell's pinnacle vehicle in the Chevrolet line-up. Mitchell, then heir-apparent to famed designer Harley Earl, sought to introduce "curves where before there were lines," and achieved this in dramatic fashion. Unique to the model were its 6 tail lights, a classic styling cue that became its trademark. For this one-year-only styling, no automotive surface was left untouched or unchanged. The Impala convertible was the most expensive Chevrolet available in 1958. This extremely well-equipped '58 Impala convertible has benefitted from a complete rotisserie restoration that was performed with no expense spared. It is finished in PPG black with the correct new black, silver and teal interior. All chrome re-plated and stainless steel re-polished to show finish. It features the newly rebuilt Turboglide automatic transmission and 348 Tri-Power engine. It has all of the options like power steering, power brakes, power windows, power top, power seat, antenna, dual exhaust, spinner hubcaps, posi-traction and Continental Kit.
