Car description

RESTORED 58 older restoration; but still in excellent condition.i bought this for my father in law at a CRUSE auction in ft lauderdale over 20 years ago( back when CRUISE was one of the biggest names in classic car auctions).i bought it for my business partner and promptly told my father in law about it. he was so excited he said if he does'nt like it please sell it to me, as that is my dream car. i had gone there to buy a early 50's cadillac convertible for him, but the price had jumped on them 100% in 1 year so i found this paticularly nice 58 chevy in reo red (i believe was the color name). in a flash it was mine. at the last minute i decided to sell it to my father in law as he would appreciate it much more than my wealthy partner. he would have driven it once or twice and never have a desire to drive it again . i bought him a fuel injected 57 corvette over 25 years ago and he drove it twice. i FINALLY ( 7 years late, I got him to sell it to me. i still have it to this day) SO my father in law has babied it since that day. he sadly passed away recently and i am selling it for the estate.my wife took it out of its trailer today and took it for a drive. it runs and drives perfectly. when i washed it i told my self there must be 20 coats of wax on this car.the paint is high gloss and in great condition.on a 1-10 i would rate this car a 8.5 with 10 being perfect. the only thing that keeps it from being a 9.5 or 10 is it IS an older restoration.i have alot of classic european sports cars. i recently bought a perfectly restored 52 xk120 jaguar. (it is a 3 year old restoration.) in brilliant black. this impala has an equal gloss on it as the jaguar does. the interior looks new and top/tires and engine are all like new.he has taken more trophies than there was room in his shop.it is equipped with the desirable 348 engine with 4 bb carb. 1958 is the FIRST YEAR of the IMPALA,and the first year of the big 348 engine. it was the biggest engine offered that year.the car is easy to keep tuned and runs tirelessly at turnpike speeds.it is also equipped with a continental kit,and fender skirts. under the spare tire cover is a new wide white tire shown in pics . this car shows as good under the hood and trunk as any car i have or have owned. today i took my wife out for a drive in it as it was the first time it had been driven by anyone else in well over 20 years. i though it fitting for his daughter( my wife) to be the first person to drive it after his passing. she had a smile on her face the whole time. everyone gave her thumbs up at every stoplight!!--the car does'nt leak any oil that i can see,not does it burn any oil( smoke) the engine is real quiet. the powerglide tansmission shifts easy and smooth. the passing gear kick down is also adjusted properly. --this is a turn key drive it home; drive it across country type of vehicle. the chrome is also equally as nice as the rest of the car.i ran out of good overhead sunlight tonight,so i only took limited pictures of it. tomorrow i will take more detailed ones and post them on ebay tomorrow asap.i am selling it at a NO RESERVE auction,with a buy it now of $85,000. i feel after examining the market; it is at least a $100,000 car. many people want $120-$140k for theirs.i am also adding a buy it now option for the people who do not have a lightening fast computer and loose the bid at the last 3-15 seconds before the auction ends.i have a large collection of classic motorcycles and i often buy the buy it now price if its something i want,and if it a fair price. today the 58's have surpassed in valu, "the iconic57 chevy convertble".i always admired the 58 over the 5, even as a kid. i tried to talk my dad into a new one back in 1958. he was worried about the economy in '58 but once recovered; he bought a new 59 impala. to me ;there is no comparison between a '58 and a '59. the 58's are much more attractive, rare,and they DO NOT make to my knowledge new reproduction bodies for '58 like they do for the 57's. also because the 57's are so common today it is a sight for sore eyes to see a bright red 58 convertible.. any questions feel free to call me 352-598-7431( terry)
