A 1958 Chevy Impala Convertible with a 348 Tripower consistently brings more money than a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible with a Power Pack.

There is a lot to like about the ’58s but the big reason they are so popular is that it was a one-off design, only used that one year. By ’59 Chevrolet was already cutting back on the chrome and simplifying the styling. Lower, longer and wider than its predecessor, the new ’58 Impala also offered an array of engine and interior options which became icons of classic ’50s design. The tri-tone interiors were a ’58 look, and no other model ever looked so stunning with a big Continental kit on the rear valance.
