the problems with converting to a wagon is, the rear lights.. on most impalas, (ie.-64) the lights are different, and wagons are four doors, so you'd have to take doors off a regular impala, and sand them to fit.. there are a few other differences, not really big tho.....

...but to answer your question, yes, it can be done..... if youre willing to do some work... ;)

you can use a Nomad top to help you make a wagon. Thats what I did for my '58 wagon, the only thing that I didn't do was check up on the rear end to see if the rear lights were different from a wagon. Then again, I don't recall seeing a '58 wagon!!! Sorry the pic is small, and a bit outta focus, but its old. I'll see if I can barrow someone's camera and take some upclose pics.



like it said its small.... :biggrin: hope that helps a little.
can you tell me exactly how you did that?

I used the roof and posts off the '55 Nomad, I cut the top off the '58 Impala like you would to make it a convertable. A little bit of sheet plastic to cover the gap, and smoothed it out. Wasn't much to it, pretty simple, LRB had a article about something close to it, makin'g a sedan roadster or something like that adding the top from a Delivery Truck to a Roadster.
what are posts and you also cut out the trunk but how bout the opening in the trunk/the back and what gap did you cover?like the trunk right?can you post a pic of it?

I used the posts off the Nomad, and yes I did cut out the trunk off the Impala, but I did not completely cut it off.



I'll get some upclose pictures so you can see what I'm talking about.
ok thanks man but I cant see the pic when can you get the rest?
