This 1958 Chevrolet Brookwood wagon checks all the right boxes for a desirable classic. After all, the '58 Chevy was a single-year design, and the station wagons were always an expensive buy (i.e. rarer). So when an interesting classic has a fresh BluePrint performance V8 - while still remaining affordable - it's hard not to get excited.
The 1958 Chevrolets are always an in-demand style. More than just having single-year uniqueness, they tapped into the right feelings of the era with a wide chrome front end, full-length trim, and jet-inspired details. Plus, wagons like this Brookwood had some cool details. It takes advantage of the rear doors by having the wraparound tailfin taper into the design. And this one already has a custom/cool cruiser style that comes on day one. There are upgrades like the creative full cream white pinstriping that's underscoring most of the badging, and it coordinates with the white on the roof and side trim insert. The tan paint has a hot rod kind of matte finish, and this rides on 17-inch Boyd Coddington wheels. So while the presentation is not perfect, it really does have the perfect flair for those who are looking for a classic-style street machine. Of course, there's also just plenty of us who see a lot of potential in a distinctive Chevy grocery-getter offered for the kind of price that leaves plenty of room to get creative.
The brown interior is complete and uniform. The seats and door panels were updated later in life, and so they are good for today and easy to update when you're ready. Details like the upgraded steering wheel and auxiliary gauge trio make it a solid driver. There's plenty of room for family and friends across the two wide benches. There's also plenty of space for cargo room in the rear, and the back seat folds for even more versatility. Plus, the tailgate is the desirable split unit. So this one has a useful side for everything from being your classic car workhorse to being the coolest tailgater at the ballgame.
The engine bay instantly reminds you of the car's full potential and where there have already been the right investments. It's a fresh BluePrint 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 that was added within about the last year. These guys are masters at building performance, and so this includes enhanced internals, aluminum heads, and a Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. The full package is rated at 435 horsepower and 462 lb-ft of torque... and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! And just to make sure this one announces its power superiority, the headers feed directly underneath the car for an open street machine kind of thunder. More than just a powerful attitude, there are also nice supporting components, like an aluminum radiator, an electric fan, and steel braided fuel lines with AN fittings. Plus, a three-speed automatic transmission and modern tires keep this rumbling wagon an all-around cruiser.
So no matter if you're looking for a ready-to-run street machine or have some plans for a powerful custom, you already know this rare Brookwood is the most distinct way to show up on the scene. Call today!!!
