I liked the styling.  It showed some sleekness and lines that survive to this day.


This car had the infamous 348 c.i. motor.  Sadly underpowered.


Blue Brother. — Impala and me. Photo taken in 1968. This car was a nice piece of work, styling wise. I was not impressed with the power. However, it did have an A/C, factory installed. I had this car in high school, and enjoyed the "status" that it provided.

Quite functional


Even used as a patrol car by the police.


Ordinary, Practical But Not A Classic. — It was the only white exterior with red interior car that my immediate family owned. I earned my driver's license in this one. Three little tail lights on each side first appeared on the 1960 model and then on the 1961 model.

My Uncle's Impala By Krista

Well, the car belongs to my uncle, but in 1958 I don't think they were as interested in "handling" so much as going fast and looking good at it. This car is all original, rides like a dream, and made... Read More

1959 Chevy Impala By tenspeed

Slow and bad handling. The worst styling of the era which earned it the lowest selling price. Drum brakes all around that were good for one hard stop. A challenge when it was time for the yearly inspe... Read More

It Was My All-time Favorite Car (and I Have Had Over 30). By Statguy

Styling -- 5 stars -- especially the Impala coupe. Performance was fine, not outstanding. I had 283 V8, not a 348, so that's what one would expect. If you want a car that will turn heads and contin... Read More
