This 1958 Chevrolet Impala has all the right stuff to turn heads and keep its passengers riding in comfort. Designed as a Pro Tourer, it combines old-school style with new-school tech, and the result is one enticing two-door.
Outside, the ’58 Chevrolet Impala looks stunning in glossy Classic White paint, with the curvaceous chrome and stainless trim shining bright front to back. Side styling lines draw the eye towards the pronounced rear tail fins, while polished five-spoke wheels sit neatly under the fenders. The roofline falls gracefully into an extended trunk line, positioning the greenhouse centrally in the profile. A set of aluminum exhaust pipes make the good noises.
The cabin space is decked out in leather upholstery with a taupe color scheme. Meanwhile, the dash, floors, and central tunnel offset the light coloring with a splash of red. All of the interior lights work, including lighting for the mirrors and sun visors, while Vintage Air keeps it at just the right temperature. A three-spoke LaCarra steering wheel sits ahead of a set of Autometer analog gauges, also draped in leather.
Making this Chevrolet Impala move is a 305 V8 plucked from the engine bay of a late ’80s Chevrolet Camaro. The ‘eight feeds a 700R4 Overdrive transmission and open 3.55 rear end to drive the rear wheels, while ceramic-coated headers and MagnaFlow mufflers evacuate the spent gasses. Mounted under the hood, the V8 looks nice thanks to plenty of polished metal bits.
To enhance the driving experience, this 1958 Chevrolet Impala was equipped with power disc brakes in front, which are matched to drum brakes in the rear. A quick-ratio power steering setup finishes it off.
