Outstanding example of a well maintained
luxury 2 door convertible that can carry not
only five passengers comfortably but plenty
of luggage or golf clubs in the massive
trunk. This particular car sports the massive
348 cubic inch engine introduced only one
year earlier and more importantly the 280hp
version with 3-2 barrel carburetor's. The car
was manufactured in General Motors Baltimore
Maryland plant as determined by the VIN and
Cowl Tag and still sports its original engine
as well as exterior color of Onyx Black with
a nicely contrasting red interior that
compliments the rich characteristics of the
matching solid black convertible top. The
wide whites and full spinner wheel covers
along with rear fender skirts really make
this the perfect parade car or for that
matter any special occasion.
This particular model has manual windows,
automatic transmissions,power brakes, power
steering, power top, dual exhaust,
detailed under carriage and frame, bright
trim, exceptionally clear glass with all
gauges, lights and components operating
Chevrolet produced in excess of 1.2 million
full size cars in 1958 with less than 56,000
being 2 door convertibles. Statistics do not
provide a further breakdown as to how many
had the coveted 348 cubic inch engine with 3
- 2 barrel carburetors, but by anyones
estimation a rare example of history awats
its new owner.
Prior to its current owner the car was
registered in New Hampshire where it spent
most of its life having been owned and cared
for by an avid collector of rare automobiles.
All reasonable offers considered on this
outstanding example of a large luxury cruiser
that represents the height of American
craftsmanship with fins that would become
obsolete only several years later.
I have an independent appraisal from IVAN
dated July 2016 if interested. They value the
car greater than my asking price.
