Frame Off Restoration - Currie Rear End - Ostrich Leather - Superb Chrome

Vintage Motorcars is pleased to present this custom 1958 Chevrolet Impala Resto-Mod.

This custom '58 Impala was the recipient of a frame-off restoration approximately 10 years ago and was professionally built with the perfect blend of classic style wrapped around modern technology. The builder chose the '58 for its iconic looks and style making the perfect basis for a project of this magnitude.

Nothing was spared in the nut-and-bolt restoration that went into the creation of this beautiful Chevrolet. With substantial effort exhibited from every angle, both name-brand and custom-fabricated components abound.

In place of the original power plant is now a fully chromed, fuel-injected 502 Ram Jet engine. This modern mill comes complete with multiple chrome accessories as well as some modern conveniences:

* March Performance serpentine belt system

* Chrome Ram Jet intake

* Chrome Vintage Air components

* Chrome power brake boost / reservoir

* Chrome alternator

* Chrome power steering reservoir

* Chrome hood hinges

* Chrome A/C dryer

* 4-core radiator

* Electric radiator fan

* Shaved / smoothed firewall

* Braided lines throughout engine bay

* Power steering

* Power brakes

* Vintage A/C – Heat

* Currie rear end

* 4-wheel disc brakes

* Power windows


Behind the engine is a matched floor-shifted TH400 automatic transmission with a digital readout. The entire suspension is new to ensure a smooth ride, and everything touches the ground on 18- and 20-inch Billet Specialties wheels.

Wonderfully visual in a Deep Red paint, this Impala has been lovingly smoothed, blocked and painted for an absolutely gorgeous finish over perfectly straight sheet metal. A beautiful paint job would be nothing without near perfect stainless and chrome, and this car will not disappoint!

The two-tone tan over Ostrich leather interior is appointed in luxurious but durable upholstery, which

includes detailing all the way back through the trunk area. Up front are custom leather seats and console, Billet Specialties steering wheel, custom digital gauging and updated audio equipment.

When you are building an over-the-top car like this one; you don't stop at the top side. That's why the entire undercarriage is either painted or powder-coated to truly give it the “WOW” factor when you want to install mirrors for all the jealous onlookers to view.

I could go on all day long about the stunning quality of this fine, custom Impala… but I feel the photos tell the story!

For somebody looking for the ultimate cruise-in machine that features classic looks with all the modern amenities, or a drop-dead gorgeous show-quality car with enough custom flair to make people look twice, this '58 Custom Impala is your answer.

All VMC vehicles are put through a service/safety check and road test (weather permitting) to be sure they are safe and road worthy. I make sure the oil has been changed and do an inspection of the brakes, belts, hoses, cooling system, fluid levels, etc. Of course, every vehicle will ride and drive with the engine and transmission performing as expected.
