This sensational and historically significant car has to be seen to be fully appreciated!

The car that started it all......

1958 was a big year for the legendary automaker, not only was this the first year for the all time classic Impala range, but 58 was also the first year of the Big Block 348 High Performance engines in the passenger car range, the engine on which all other High Performance Chevrolet products since can trace their lineage back to, this is the undisputed grandfather of a host of serious sixties and seventies Muscle Cars that have gone on to become legends in their own right, and this is where it all started.....

This spectacular 58 has had full and very comprehensive rotisserie restoration carried out to a very high standard, and was restored properly by Kiwi tradesmen, having been on our shores since the late eighties.

Although an older restoration completed some years ago this example still presents beautifully today, and absolutely looks as if it was very recently restored, but the beauty of this example is that if it had been restored recently it would owe so much money today that it would never be available to own at this price......so this is a genuine rare opportunity to own one of these cars in this condition in this price bracket.....

Starting with what was obviously a nice old survivor this example has had everything rebuilt or refurbished, it looks and drives probably better than it would have new, and is an absolute pleasure to experience throughout, from the Rio Red paintwork to the Tri Colour interior trim, and the magnificently detailed Big Block.

The 348 Big Block option came in different states of tune, this example displays as a high output "Super Turbo Thrust" and is running the triple 2 barrel Tri-Power set up, with the 3 speed manual transmission,(No auto option available on this particular configuration) so she really was the business back in the day!

The highly detailed W-348 runs beautifully and the gear shift is light and smooth, also added to the list of options is factory power steering, which brings the package together very nicely making this example an absolute pleasure to drive,

Beautiful chrome and bright work trim, and just the pure magic that is the style of the 58 Impala, from the quad lamps to the roof vent and side vents, this car is the ultimate in late 50s American excess !

Inspection a must, this is an iconic car sure to be a rewarding future investment.....
