Chevrolet had completely redesigned its product lineup for 1958 and the Impala had a number of unique features to separate it from the standard Bel Air. In 1958 Impalas accounted for about 15 percent of Chevrolet’s total sales. All 1958 Chevrolets were longer, lower and wider than 1957 and rode on a new X-frame, with coil springs front and rear. Designer Bill Mitchell had replaced the fins and simple straight lines of the ’57 models with baroque curves. Incidental aluminum brightwork was scattered everywhere. All models had full-width mesh grilles and four headlights and signature triple taillights. Impalas also had script and crossed flags in front of the side styling coves, ribbed rocker panels and faux air intakes ahead of the rear wheels.
