These two photos from GM Photographic were originally sent to the media in October of 1958 to be published in newspapers and other advertising. They are 8×10 prints made from high resolution negatives, so they contain a lot of crisp detail. The car represented here is a 1959 Impala 4-door Sport Sedan, nicknamed the “Flat Top” for its flat saucer type roof. Notice that this car has an emblem on the rear next to the right side tail-light indicated that it was equipped with Level Air suspension, a very rare option.

An unusual sculptured hood and radiator grill ensemble accent the low flowing lines. The rear quarters and deck area give an appearance of a graceful spread of majestic wings, producing a modern motif.

Greater visibilkity is achieved through a large compound windshield and a wide wrap-around rear window.

Completely restyled in one of the most exciting designs ever created for a production automobile, the latest Chevrolets also incorporate impressive progress in suspension systems, better breaks and easier handling characteristics. In addition, all 1959 Chevrolets will sparkle for a long time after they leave the factory. They will be painted in the new acrylic finish which retains its brilliant lustre up to three years.
