About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Red, White and Turquoise

October 1957. "Taillight of 1958 Chevrolet." One of the lower-end Chevys, which had duplex taillights, as opposed to the triple-light tail-plus-backup arrangement on the deluxe models.

Today's Top 5


One of my teenage buddies had a 58 Belair sedan back in the 60's. The 57 was the one to have in that era, but I have to say that 58 was one nice ride!

The Chevy Blues

For the 1958 model year, the Chevrolet customer could choose from these blue-and-white combinations:
* Arctic White / Cashmere Blue
* Arctic White / Tropic Turquoise
* Arctic White / Aegean Turquoise
* Silver Blue / Snowcrest White

More Please...

These factory photos of the 58's are great. It is hard to find factory photos of the 1958 Chevys. I own a 58 Bel Air and love to see these..... more please!
