Yes the Impala was an option for the 1958 Bel Air. It was the top of the line version for the Bel Air making it more of a luxury vehicle. The 1958 was a bit wider and lower than the tri 5s. It also had a big block 348 engine so it had more power. It was a drastic redesign and was quite the work of art. Award winning nearly horizontal fins and a wrap around rear window. I don't even think that is legal anymore.
Racing Champions is part of the Auto World family of die cast cars. They are the ones that are known for their line of True 1/64 scale models. Anyway this is still again yet another very well detailed model. Check out all that chrome trim plus those white wall tires. Of course the hood opens. The only thing here I would like is a two tone paint job but this still looks pretty good. Sea foam green is the official color of mid century.
