Very cool! I had one but it was chipped so I gave it to a co-worker who's daughter has a 58.
I'd plant that on your garage wall and enjoy it!

I saw my old mustang=model car radio, a dealer give away on a shelf in the shop the other day, It was in a display case in the house when we had a fire. The kids cub scout pine wood derby cars, model cars they built. all scorched and the plastic ones half way melted, distorted.

Stuff like this is a kick, I love it. I wish I had all the ones my dad got over the years as a salesman. I have one, my brother has another. Mine is an icecream scoop basically telling you that if you have tilt wheel steering you can eat all the ice cream you want because if your belly hits the wheel you can tilt it up out of the way.
My brothers is a "Crying towel" from the Buick "Crying towel" sale around 1969. I have never seen a ruler like you have, that is so cool. A lot of these these were throw away sort of stuff so there are none left. Just like the paper and coardboard signs in the show room. I saw these things for YEARS my dad was a salesman my whole childhood at a Buick dealer. Man I wish I had just one of those signs that were tossed in the garbage at the end of the year for my garage, that would be so cool.

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---->"

My brother found this in the basement of a house he just bought. Best gift ever!! It's gonna' take more than five photo's to show it all, so keep reading!
