Introduced as Chevrolets first foray upmarket, the Impala proved GMs volume car juggernaut had the strength to be all things to all people. It was the ride your upper class neighbors enjoyed and, like the original Bel Air, it wholly embodied the time of its creation. With that in mind, this awesome, second generation drop-top was immediately snatched up by its first owner in late 1958. That owner, Foster Harris of Dayton, Ohio, purchased the car from Williamstown, Kentuckys Piles Chevrolet as a gift for his wife. Unfortunately Mr. Harris wife was more interested in birds than antelopes and, after 3K miles of use, the Impala was traded on a brand new Thunderbird. Thats when the Chevys second and long-term owner, Francis Mendenhall, entered the picture. Mr. Mendenhall and his wife fell in love with the car, mainly using it as a grand Sunday cruiser that provided their family years of great memories. As those years passed, the Mendenhalls daughter, Joyce, formed quite a bond with the low-mileage Chevy and would eventually use it to complete her driving test. When the time came for Joyce to head to college, the Impala returned to its plaster garage where her dad promised to store and maintain it until further notice. After college, Joyce married a future GM manager who was a hardcore Chevy fan and long-term Bel Air owner. And, in 1984, Joyces father called to say: its time for you to pick up your Impala. Ecstatic, she relocated the car to her new home and started hitting the national show circuit where, as you might imagine, the all-original, 21K mile drop-top was a big hit. In 2006, after roughly half a century in the same family, Joyce and her husband finally passed the car to its third and present owner. That owner commissioned a heavy engine servicing that included new seals, new freeze plugs and fresh block paint. And today, the car rolls as a fully documented national award winner thats seen only 28,910 miles of road time.
