1958 Chevrolet Impala Hard Top For Sale
1958 Chevrolet Impala Hard Top Details
This two-door sport coupe Impala is a beautiful car. The body number on the cowl tag confirms it was assembled in Baltimore Maryland. The trim code is 861 which confirms the interior color is coral and cloth/vinyl fabric. And the Paint code is 980 which confirms it is Cay Coral with an Arctic White hard top. The paint looks especially awesome right before the sun sets outside because of the color. The car’s V.I.N. is F58B169578. “F” indicates that it is an Impala. “58” indicates the year of the car. “B” indicates that it was assembled in Baltimore, Maryland. “169578” is the serial number.
It has the correct original engine stamp 3737739 which indicates that it was produced from 1957-1959 and is a 283 small block Chevrolet motor.
The car has 2500 miles on it since it was restored and is a local AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America) award winner. It was a nice original rust free car to start with and then meticulously restored to its current condition. It is 283 cubic inch small block Chevy powered through a 2-speed power glide automatic transmission and has a 4 barrel carb. The original engine was rebuilt 2500 miles ago with the restoration. The car runs and drives great and would be a great car to cruise in daily or take to a local car show.
The Impala’s bumpers are the original chromed and were never re-chromed, which shows how well the car was maintained before restoration. The chrome looks great inside and out and has the optional fender skirts as well as original hubcaps. The Impala’s headlamps, taillamps, and interior lights work as they should. The body is clean with no signs of rust forming and the paint is beautiful.
So much care was taken in restoring this car as shown by the wiring of the car in the engine bay and small details such as the battery.
The windows roll up and down easily and the doors open and shut without issues. The interior was completely redone so the seats are springy and in excellent condition. It also has the spare wheel/tire and jack. The engine bay looks immaculate and so does the trunk. Though you can drive this car to your local cruise in and get some thumbs up, this car is a level above that and is an award winner.
SUMMARY: This is a beautiful and solid car. The previous owner really took a lot of time and care getting her “right”. The engine fires right up and purrs. She really is a time warp, almost like you drove it off the showroom floor in 1958. Everything works as it should. The transmission shifts just like 1958. There is not really that much to say about this car except she is beautiful, solid, and ready to cruise or show.
