Looks like a 58 Mercury in the middle.
I want a 58 Impala so bad! Here are some of my favorites...and one Bonneville because it looks so good
Chris: Those are all awesome! I'm kinda diggn' the "EL" in the last post too.
Some more. The flamed one at the bottom really floats my boat
Wow, from Watson style to the full Bubba treatment on the two door wagon! One hell of a trunk lid on the white one.
It is always interesting to see the things people build, even if it isn't anything I would consider doing.
Spotted a very nice 58 Belaire this week at the Fall Carlisle Florida Autofest Auction. Rare Anniversary Gold and Inca Silver color combo.
I have a feeling I know why that color combo is rare!
Its like a before and after all in one. JW
What are the odds of these being the same car? I know the paint isn't an exact match but the outlining around the trim and such is close enough to speculate...maybe it got changed up a lil at a later date like most kustoms did? Overlook the red steering wheel in the junkyard car also, it appears to be the only red item inside. The Keller car does have the door handles and Biscayne script but those could have been shaved if/when it was "updated." The Keller car also had a louvered hood, which is missing from the junkyard car. Someone chime in and tell me its all just wishful delusions lol. I tried google for any other info on the Keller car but came up empty handed.
Wow, a lot of similarities.
I see what your saying.

Has the wrong hub caps on it...Those are 57's.
Didnt this one burn in a yard fire a few years back?
What'cha got in there, kid?
There is something special about the sedan deliveries, to me, anyway!
Funny I just looked at that ad yesterday... Great looking car...
Thanks for posting this picture, but I have to say, I think this is a good example to show how not to do a 58! I can't see anything that has been done to it that appeals to me, other than being lowered all the way around.
Wow, the visor looks as if it came from a cartoon!

They look similar to the teeth in a 53 Desoto grille.
