GM Press Release Photos – 1959 Impala Sport Coupe and Convertible
Here are a few more of those fantastic 8×10 original prints from GM Photographic. A ’59 Impala Sport Coupe (aka 2-door hardtop), and a ’59 Impala Convertible.

1959 Chevrolet IMPALA SPORT COUPE – Release after 7 a.m. OCTOBER 14 (1958)
Certain to be a very popular model in the 1959 line is the sparkling new Impala sport coupe. This sleek, smooth model is two inches lower than former sport coupes. Passengers will thrill at the added visibility in the windshield and rear window made possible by the larger glass area and the slimline supports.
The Impala sport coupe is fresh in its new acrylic paint finish, which will remain bright up to three years. Mechanical improvements include new brakes, new suspension and easier handling characteristics.

1959 CHEVROLET IMPALA CONVERTIBLE – Release after 7 a.m. OCTOBER 14 (1958)
The 1959 Chevrolet Impala convertible dressed in new low-sweeping lines herald it as the sportiest of the “top down” group. This model like all other 1959 Chevrolets features new and brilliantly appointed all-vinyl interiors in smart colors that harmonize with the exterior colors. Completely restyled in the modern touch of all new Chevrolets, the convertible also has a new suspension system, new brakes and improved handling characteristics. A new acrylic paint finish, which is said to remain for as long as three years, is standard on all models.
