    Why are 58 Fords underrepresented ?Are guys holding on to them ,or are they particularly scarce ? maybe they were a derby favorite ,who knows ?
     
  2. You looking to buy one? I have some.

    I guess people look at them as the bastard sons of 57's (which aren't represented very well IMHO). When I got my 57 it was a toss-up with a 58 Custom 300. The 58 had an FE and I wanted a Y-block so I went with the 57. I have seen 58's in the last 2 shows I've gone to. A retractable at one and an absolutly beautiful Courier yesterday at MIS. Made me want to go back and get the 58.

    The '58 looks like it's got an underbite...

    Back in the early 70s my Dad had a 58 Ranchero. Today I see many 57 Rancheros but I've yet to see a 58 and I feel the 58 Rancheros are better looking than the 57s because of the quad headlights and hoodscoop. On the other hand, while I like the 58 front on the cars, I don't like the taillights. To me, a 58 Ford car with the 57 taillights is perfect.
     
  11. Because they are butt ugly.
    I have a 58 convertible that I bought to convert to a 57 because 57s are beautiful and 58s are awful.My 2¢

    I love my 58 ford. I think 58 fords look better than the 57. They do rot bad around the front headlights.

    Not beautiful, but they have an aggressive look to them- especially without the grille bar.

    I dig my '58 Ranchero. Even tho it looks like a Thunderbird's dumb but dangerous brother...

    And when it had Keystones on it, it looked a little like the Batmobile. Maybe it's what Batman would drive to Home Depot, but I guess Alfred would do that though. Gotta think about that...
