    Default 1958 Impala Convertible Continental Kit

    Could both of these be factory?
    Looking at finally buying a 58 Vert. There aren't a lot of people that REALLY know, but could both of these be factory Kits?


    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps EVER. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to ‘Please Do Not Feed the Animals'. Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

    the "face" of the kit looks repop...should have cut out and factory "dents" for liscence plate

    there are other ways to tell, but you kinda have to take apart to see

    Ur thinking 59s. Those have the indents. 58s are smooth, just a cut out for the hinge bracket.

    another way you can tell, and this I AM sure of, is on a repop, the "basket" part of the bumper , the curved corners, are made in seperate peices and welded together and than chromed, where a factory one is stamped outta one peice... but you'd prob have to take it apart a lil to see it
