1958 Chevy Impala Coupe: Are you a fan of the 1958 Impala? Of course, who’s not a fan of this amazing 1st year unique body style that started the Impala legacy that still continues 60 years later. Now, have you ever wondered what a ’58 Impala might look like after a 10 year custom restoration totaling over a 1/4 million?!? A build where every part of the vehicle was completely rebuilt, custom made, chromed, powder coated, or designed with an open checkbook. The result of this remarkable build is now available for the first time ever to the public and is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own an exceptional piece of rolling art. If you believe that life is too short to own anything but the best, you have just met your latest love.
The details of this build are very extensive so below are simplifying just this ad by just touching on the highlights. Work began on this vehicle in 2009 with the powder coating of all frame, suspension, body items, and engine parts. There was rust on the donor car so instead of using any filler, all body panels (except hood and trunk lid) we sourced from a completely rust-free donor car. A four year effort was then required to complete the body, paint, and graphics on the vehicle. 100% of the bolts, nuts, screws, and washers are polished stainless-steel. For the drivetrain, a crate Chevrolet 502 Ram Jet was purchased and paired with a GM 4L80E heavy duty truck transmission. The block, heads, transmission case and engine were smoothed and painted with PPG Concept paint and clear to match the silver body paint. A front runner Vintage Air Gen II system was installed to heat and cool the interior. A custom Air-Ride Suspension was installed on all four wheels. The entire cabin and trunk floor are insulated with 3/4 inch aluminum backed insulation and carpeted with top of the line material. The interior is further fitted with GM bucket seats and a custom designed console. All components were covered in synthetic leather and the graphics on the interior panels were airbrushed to match the side graphics. Sound is delivered by an Audio/GPS unit with a multiple speaker system. The wheels on this incredible Impala are custom designed “Billet Specialties” in a one-of-a-kind 20″ polished aluminum wrapped with low profile tires. Additional information is available at any time and we can even put you on the phone with the builder to discuss this vehicle at length.
