Beautiful clean looking build. Just the right amount of chrome removal and paint to accent the body lines.

They're in the Jo-Han '59 Rambler Wagon reissue; Okey Spaulding has them for sale.

Mine were a set of resin hub caps , I must have had these for 15 years before I built something I wanted to put them on .

That is classy and smooooooth. Looks like she’s just barely floating above the deck.

Nice! I saw one of these at a show a few years ago in metallic green, I've been wanting to build one ever since.

I love 58 Impalas and yours looks just right.

Thanks oldscool, yeah there’s something about 58 impalas, I love the way they look anyway you build em , I’ve building since about 1993 and I think I’ve built more AMT 58 impalas than any other kits , I always have 3 or 4 58’s in my model car stash just sitting there waiting.
