So what this is is a Chevrolet promotional "yardstick" for the '58 Chevy Impala. I put yardstick in quotes because this is actually 56.4" long. I tried to place the photo's in order so you can see all the markings. On one side the stick says " '58 Chevrolet THE NEW MEASURE OF REALLY MODERN STYLING! Head Room, Front 35.1" Leg Room, Front (all sedans) 44.7" IMPALA OVERALL HEIGHT 56.4"--->"
On the other side it says "'58 CHEVY.....SO LOW, SO LONG, SO SUPREMELY SMART! ...and the IMPALA is ONLY THIS HIGH---->"
