Debut model year for second-generation Impala Correct Tuxedo Black exterior (code 900) Restored red interior 348 CID Turbo Thrust V-8 engine from a 1961 Chevy with dual exhausts Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission Safety-Master brakes
Longer, lower and wider was the theme at Chevrolet in 1959 and the Impala did not disappoint in those regards. It sported a 1.5-inch longer wheelbase than the previous year while setting three inches lower and two inches wider. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this 1959 Impala four-door sedan.
This example was made in GM’s Kansas City, Missouri factory (VIN code K).
Finished in correct Tuxedo Black (code 900), the car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The car’s bodywork is straight and the car’s chrome bumpers shine brilliantly in the sun, the engine bay is in satisfactory order and the battery is in great shape.
This car rides on BFGoodrich wide whitewall tires, size 8.30-14 at all four corners with factory wheel covers. The tires and wheel covers are all in very good order.
A period correct 348 CID Turbo Thrust V-8 engine breathing via dual exhausts replaces the original motor. The V-8 is linked to a Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission. Nineteen fifty-nine models came with improved Safety-Master brakes.
Inside, a restored red interior on the bench seats are in great condition, as is the complementary carpet and gray headliner. A two-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the instrument panel and inner door panels continue the theme set by the rest of the interior. The transmission quadrant selector is marked P-R-N-D-G. The G stood for Grade Retard. The grade retard feature was not designed as a low or forward acceleration gear but was meant to be used only on long declines to generate a degree of engine braking. Completing the interior are a shift lever and a factory AM radio.
The 1959 Chevrolet Impala was redesigned. Sharing bodyshells with lower-end Buicks and Oldsmobiles as well as with Pontiac, as part of a GM economy move, the Chevrolet's wheelbase was 1-1/2 inches longer. Using a new X-frame chassis, the roof line was three inches lower, bodies were two inches wider, and curb weight increased. Its tailfins protruded outward, rather than upward. The taillights were a large “teardrop” design at each side, and two slim-wide nonfunctional front air intake scoops were added just above the grille.
The Impala became a separate series, adding a four-door hardtop and four-door sedan, to the two-door Sport Coupe and convertible. Sport Coupes featured a shortened roof line and wrap-over back window. The standard engine was a 235 CID Blue Flame I6, while the base V-8 was the carryover 283 CID Turbo Fire V-8. Optional were a 283 CID Turbo Fire V-8 with 290 horsepower and 348 CID W-series Turbo Thrust V-8 up to 335 horsepower. Standard were front and rear armrests, an electric clock, dual sliding sun visors, and crank-operated front vent windows. A contoured hooded instrument panel held deep-set gauges. A six-way power seat was a new option, as was “Speedminder,” for the driver to set a needle at a specific speed and a buzzer would sound if the pre-set was exceeded. Four-door sedan sales in 1959 totaled 525,461 units.
Sedan competition to this Impala in 1959 included Dodge’s Coronet Get-Away Six, Edsel’s Ranger Economy Six, Ford Galaxie Town Sedan with Mileage Maker Six and Plymouth’s Belvedere with PowerFlow 6.
