Vehicle OverviewDebuting in 1958, the Impala was an instant smash hit and helped to propel the "bowtie" brand to number one in manufacturing with this new model, accounting for 15% of total Chevrolet production. The 1958 Chevrolet Bel Airs owed nothing to the previous year, from their four headlights to rolled and lowered rear fins, to the all-new bodywork and curvaceous interior cabin. Introduced as the top of the line Bel Air hardtops the Impala also featured the innovative "X Frame" which provided greater structural rigidity and resistance to twisting forces and, at the same time, permitted the lowering of the car without sacrificing space. This Onyx Black Bel Air Impala is in superb condition and is a great representation of the "one-year-only" body style. The recipient of a recent frame off restoration, every inch of the full-size Chevrolet has been lovingly refinished. The laser-straight body work accentuates the gleaming chrome molding and trim which is all complete. Also, the terrific spinner hubcaps look just right with the wide white-wall tires. Power is compliments of the 348-cubic inch V8 engine, first used in 1958, with 4-barrrel carburetion producing a healthy 250 horsepower. This smooth running "Turbo-Thrust" V8 engine is connected to the reliable two-speed "Powerglide" automatic transmission. A unique factory installed option is the Chevrolet developed "Flameout Vacuum Ashtray". This accessory used a glass jar that was mounted on the driver's side of the car, under the dash, and was connected to the engine for receiving manifold vacuum. When the driver or passenger was ready to discard their cigarette, they placed it in the dash-mounted receptacle and depressed a spring-loaded valve. Depressing the valve would allow engine vacuum into the jar, drawing the cigarette into the jar, and extinguishing the hot end! A 1958 Impala Bel Air is a unique find, especially one this nice. Don't miss your chance to own this exceptional full-size Chevrolet gem.
