1959 Chevrolet Impala Series / F59L180143 Chassis Information

Impala Series 1800 V8 Convertible
Chassis Num: F59L180143
Sold for $88,000 at 2012 RM Sothebys.
The new small-block V8 was introduced for 1955 and helped Chevrolet become a sales leader and also the performance leader in the low-priced field. Upgrades followed in 1956 and 1957 including fuel injection and achieving the one-bhp-per-cubic-inch for its 283 cubic-inch engine. In 1958, the line was completely redesigned with the flagship being the new Impala subseries in the Bel Air line, appearing in two body styles only, a convertible and 'Sport Coupe' two-door hardtop.

The Impala was given new uniquely-contoured rear fenders and extra taillights. Under the bonnet was a new engine designed for truck use, joining the small-block V8. It had a displacement size of 348 cubic-inches an available in several stages of tune, producing 250 to 315 BHP.

For 1959, all General Motors cars were redesigned in reaction to Chrysler Corporation's finned 1957s. Chevrolet was given gull-wing rear fender adornment and long horizontal 'eyebrows' in the leading edge of the hood. At the top of the series was the 'Impala' and available as a four-door sedan, two- and four-door hardtops, a convertible and a four-door Nomad station wagon.

This Impala Convertible is finished in Crown Sapphire, with a light and medium turquoise vinyl interior. The car has had only three owners from new and was given a full rotisserie restoration in 1995. The top and upholstery were redone in 2010.

Power is from a 348 cubic-inch Super Turbo-Thrust engine breathing through two-barrel carburetion and offering 280 horsepower. It has a Powerglide transmission and Positraction. It is equipped with dual exhausts, power brakes and power steering. It has a Wonderbar signal-seeking radio with dual antennas, spinner hubcaps, windshield washers and E-Z Eye tinted glass. Other accessories include a tissue dispenser and a Cadillac-inspired grille guard.

In 2012, this vehicle was offered for sale at RM Auction's sale in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $75,000-$100,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $88,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
