1958 Chevrolet Impala 2dr Hardtop For Sale in Chicago. The Impala was introduced in 1958 and positioned as top of the line Bel Air coupes and convertibles. From the windshield pillar rearward, the 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Impala differed structurally from typical Chevrolets. Hardtops had a slightly shorter "greenhouse" or window area and longer rear deck, giving the impression of an extended body. 1958 was the first year of dual headlamps also. This Impala has the 348 Tri-Power engine with a "3 on the tree" 3-speed manual transmission, dual exhaust, and a posi-traction rearend. Options on this 58 Chevy are original AM Delco radio (not hooked up) AM/FM radio in the glove box, power steering, posi rearend, vinyl/cloth interior, original style Wide Whitewall bias ply tires, and the Continental kit. This Impala has been fully restored to stock, with a lot of detail, including original style factory T3 headlights and radiator rock/bug screen. The chrome and trim are in beautiful condition, and the paint shines nicely. Those are faux spotlights. On the dash is a cool Traffic Signal Indicator. With a six-cylinder engine, a Chevrolet Bel Air Impala started at $2,586, while $2,693 bought a V8. In all, 55,989 convertibles and 125,480 Sport Coupes were built, 15 percent of production. Interiors held a two-spoke steering wheel and color-keyed door panels with brushed aluminum trim. No other series included a convertible. Impala signaled Chevrolet''s entry into the mid-price field, even if the design was less radical than planned. In addition to style and vigorous performance, ads marketed its "quick, eager-to-please handling that lets you know you''re the boss."
