Marty & Dwane Martin - 1958 Chevrolet Impala with a 348 engine tri power with all numbers matching, it came out with a turbo glide transmission that had the grade reduction gear that was pretty much a crappie transmission, removed before I purchased it four years ago they had installed a three speed transmission I took out the tree speed and installed a close racial Muncie four-speed which they come out in from the factory at the end of the run. I also changed the gear in the differential from 373 which was standard for automatic to a 308 for the purpose of cruising drag racing this car is too heavy however it does have enough getaway to make it quite respectable yet. It also has a Continental kit which was a must in its day and fender skirts as you can see. I also am a 1958 model I graduated from high school in that year that could be my obsession to this car it is one-of-a-kind as well as me so my wife says
