Chevrolet's top-of-the-range Impala had everything in 1959. The outrageous fins, plenty of horsepower and luxurious extras. It didn't matter so much about the handling of the car to designers - the Impala was more about style so it only had a basic separate chassis with double wishbones up front and a coil sprung live rear axle. It was available with a number of powerplants, from a straight-six right up to the 348ci (5.7-liter). Stylists worked hard to get the car long and low and lose the earlier Chevys' upright stance, then gave owners an options list with which to personalize their vehicles. The car shown came with every one it seems, having side skirts, spot lights, continental kit, fender guards, remote trunk release, cruise control, air-conditioning and power everything. Inside it can carry six and due to its custom-friendly nature, it's been the model of choice for many lowrider fans.
