Looks to me as a convertible, not a coupe... Then it has to be an Impala.

I agree with DynaMike, it is 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Impala. The hood is probably from lesser model fitted to this car.

But is it called Impala or Bel Air Impala? In my catalogue it's Impala in the Bel Air range...

The Bel Air Impala only named in 1958 model year offically. However the inscription only contains "Impala" at the front of the rear fender area. 1959 and later model name offically listed as Impala.

Thanks, Rjluna2. I guess it's best to stay with the official name?

What is Impala compared to Bel Air? Was it considered as a separate model/body or is it just the name of a trim/version?

That's right Antoine: Impala was a trim level of the Bel Air range. I'll change the 'Impala' to the extr info field.

The Bel Air Impala 2 door hardtop and convertible are in the same Bel Air series model number. The 4 door hardtop, 4 door sedan, and 4 door station wagon are also in the same series model number grouping despite with station wagon nomenclature. Bottom line, the Bel Air Impala is part of the trim level in 1958 model year. This information came from George H. Dammann of 60 Years of Chevrolet.

That goes with the Chevrolet Caprice Classic submodel at the last generation model years. They were offer as base, LS, LTZ at the Caprice Classic model series.
