Parked just a few yards from my Cosworth Vega at the Concours, this was one of the most stunning Chevys I have ever seen! This 1958 Impala has a 348 dual quad engine (the first "big block" in a Chevy passenger car.)
One of 93 "Additional Invitees" at the Concours, this Impala surely could have won any of these 4 of 24 awards presented "Biggest Wow Factor, (optional big-block power, all that chrome including side spears and roof vent trim) or "Most Intriguing Rear View," (those classic triple tailights), or "Rolling Sculpture" (the rounded body lines, wrap-around windshield and curved rear fins) or "Most Striking Color Combination" (the coolest shade of red I have ever seen - inside and out!) Rear fender skirts would add even more bling.
1958 was the Glamour year for General Motors. Quad headlamps were introduced on Chevys to Corvettes to Cadillacs. Extra chrome was added to all upper models, even Corvettes had chrome "trunk spears." This one-year body style set the standard for the Impala nameplate for decades.
