Bryan59EC The Impala appeared in 1958 as a sub-series of the BelAir.

Means you had to order a BelAir with the Impala option.
Impala became a series of it's own in 1959

57 Impala

I was reading that the 57 Chevy was originally going to be built on a new larger shell, but financial constraints forced a remake of the 55-6 body ....

That got me to thinking ...
What if there was a limited edition 57 Impala based on the Buick Special shell? Something that was unmistakably a Chevy (not a wannabe Caddy like the El Morocco), and yet a little bit more ....

Maybe it would have had somewhat more flamboyant chrome, a 59 dash (which would have been in R&D by 1957 and goes nicely with the swept-back styling of the 57), twin 56 tail lights, and an Impala SS interior featuring an array of gadgets to rival the Turnpike Cruiser

Any thoughts?
