1958 Chevrolet

1958 Classic Chevrolet "A Whole New Look!"

The 1958 Chevrolet passenger car was a completely new design from ground up. When the '58 Chevrolet was equipped with the new 348 cubic inch big block and Turboglide transmission it represented a drastic change over its predecessor the 1957 Chevrolet. A select group of stylist headed by Chevrolet's Clare MacKichan, chief designer, was responsible for the design of the 1958 Chevrolet.

The all new, one year only automobile, the 1958 Chevy had several body revisions and a new Safety Girder X-frame chassis. Revisions included lower, wider, longer sheet metal, sculptured body styling, a new front end with dual headlight, revamped side trim treatments and gull-wing rear fenders. Chevrolet advertising called the new look - Sculpturamic Styling!

The Bel Air line consisted of the four door Sport Sedan, two door Sport Coupe, four door Sedan and two Sedan. These cars had head-turning looks in sculptured steel. The new shape was more than just glamorous it was functional, too. Customers praised the extra roominess of the Chevy interior and luggage deck. The trunk had 25 cubic inch of space. With the new slim door pillars the two door and four door sedan looked like hardtops.

The Biscayne was Chevrolet's middle priced series that had the same dual road light styling, wing fashioned rear fenders and triple taillights. Biscayne interiors were in bright basket weaves and leather grain vinyl's that were in shades that matched exteriors.

The low cost 1958 Chevrolet was called the Delray after the former interior package used on the 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevy's. The budget priced Delray series had features of the other '58 Chevy's including the high compression V-8's and 6 cylinder engines.
