    My 58 black Impala hardtop 348, 280 HP Tri power, 3 speed on the column, nosed and decked with 57 Plymouth hub caps, GMC truck mufflers exiting just forward of the rear wheels and Atlas Bucron tires was probably my favorite car of all that I've ever owned. Wish I could have it back.

    My Delray in 1964 with 301, 4sp. In 1965 it had 425/409--4sp-4:56 gear-3.5" header outlet behind front wheels and running Goodyear Double Eagle tires when I sold it. Last seen at Redding Ca. drag strip in 1966. I owned/built car in E. Oregon. 17850005-1-m.jpg
     
  5. IMG_8184.JPG I too love the '58 Chevy. I have owned my '58 Belair for many years now.

    This was in Vintage Shots yesterday... No steering wheel/column, or gas pedal... Interesting seats with standard 3 color insert...

    Joy stick control, it is interesting but a bit scary too!

    Autonomous Highway System tests, 1958
    GM and RCA developed automated highway prototypes with radio control for speed and steering. Magnets in the car tracked a steel cable embedded in the road; control towers managed overall traffic flow.

    That photo was taken on an oval test track (which is now a helicopter landing pad) at the RCA Research Laboratories in Princeton NJ. I worked there for 22 years and have the technical reports and more photos of that endeavor. I'm hoping to write an article about it someday.
    The car was returned to GM when the testing was done and disappeared. (Probably destroyed)

    Looks like a sensor in front of the odometer.. Also switches on the ashtray door...

    Interesting, they were thinking of this crap clear back in the 50s, hope the current testing goes the same way!

    It looks like the paint job was just done! It has been very well cared for, don't understand why he has just kept it in the shop all of these years instead of driving it or showing it. :cool::D:rolleyes:

    My current build - two tone Belair; I won't mention what's under the hood. Always wanted one on these and would always seek them out at car shows and was often disappointed. Rare and one of the most beautiful cars that Chevrolet ever built. Parts for them are a pain to find...[​IMG][​IMG]
