If the 1932 Ford was the first factory hot rod, the 1958 Chevrolet might be considered the first factory custom. Nothing, and I mean nothing, hit as hard as the Impala in ’58. And what we have here is a bone stock survivor with what the owner believes is 58,953 original miles. Though there is no documentation, the owner believes the car speaks for itself.

From what the owner knows, the car spent the first 90% of its life in Mississippi and now resides in Missouri. The car did have one repaint in the factory Honey Beige color in 2003. Other than that, however, what you see is what you got when she rolled off the showroom floor all those years ago.

According to the owner, the car is bone dry. There is zero rust and all of the panels are original. Plus, the paint is really great. Just a straight, solid, rust free 1958 Impala.

The motor is a 283 Power Pack backed by Turbo Glide transmission. The original carburetor was recently rebuilt and the car runs as it should. It has factory power steering and power brakes – those too are in working original order.

You have to save some glory for the interior though, right? How can you go wrong with the incredible tri-color copper upholstery? In my opinion, it’s the best interior to ever leave the GM design studio and these colors set it off as well as any.

Questions From The Jalopy Journal:

What’s the worst aspect of the Impala?
”The windshield shows a little hazing. Also, the tires have great thread, but are dated.”

What’s the best aspect of the Impala?
”Without question, originality. It’s absolutely all original other than the one repaint.”

Thoughts From The Jalopy Journal:

There’s something so romantic about an all original car, isn’t there? It’s like a blank canvas daring you to paint like the masters before us did. But the thing is, this is a ’58 Impala… You don’t have to do a damn thing to this car to feel like you are riding in a special custom.

Car is not registered but is insured. I have a clear title in my name. Not sure about date on previous Mississippi title as I had to surrender it to get my title. I have owned it for approximately 9 months. I do have a key that works all locks.

Car was driven last early winter before stored for the season. Car was put on a battery tender and stored inside and started ever so often. Last time driven, the car was drove around 12 miles. All accessories in working order except radio and fuel gauge is a little wonky sometimes. Car was serviced late last fall with very few miles since.
