"What would you want with more car than this?" I don't know...a garage long enough to fit it would be nice. This print ad depicts the Impala "Sport Sedan," which is better known as "The Flat Top" (and for good reason).
As supplies of `59 2-door hardtops have dried up, people have started to look at the more desirable versions of the 4-door cars, which include this one. Frankly I've seen some pretty righteous customs built from these flat tops; if you lower them even two inches and paint them in a two-tone scheme, they look as long as an aircraft carrier. Guaranteed there's about as much room in one as well. The pillarless design is classic. If you've never driven a hardtop car, it's tough to describe the feeling with all the windows down at 60mph. Think of convertible without the sun beating down on your neck. I've owned several hardtops in my life, and would love to own another. But having even a `59 sedan like I do is almost as much fun without breaking the bank.
Looks like this particular car is painted two-tone Code #962 - Frost Blue body with the darker Harbor Blue on the top and rear decklid. It appears to have the "V" emblem with crossed flags on the hood, which denotes a 348 V8 engine. There is no radio antenna(e) or side view mirror, nor does the car have the optional "spinner" hubcaps. Junior Ahab in the back seat is pining for a boat ride, but Mom's got Capt. Ahab all to herself for awhile. Mom's wearing jeans...was that even legal in 1959? The hat is the same color as Junior Ahab, showing that she cares enough to wear the same color.
The ad makes reference to "New bigger brakes with better cooling for safer stopping." They're not kidding...brakes on the `58 Chevy were junk with not near enough stopping power. `59s changed all that, thankfully.
