Saturday in Medicine Hat, Alberta it poured rain. This was fine with me as the next day it was supposed to be sunny and that was the day I had planned to explore the countryside. It worked out beautifully. Sunday was warm, clear, and perfect. Consul is one of those middle-of-nowhere places but sometimes you see interesting stuff off the beaten track. I saw this and could not pass it up.
I am sure someone can identify the car. I made sure to get a close-up of the restored pumps.
Nice! From the train at the elevator to the car at the gas pumps, nice!ReplyDelete
That's a nicely restored Cadillac, if I'm not mistaken. No idea what model or year though.ReplyDelete
I think it is a 1958 Chevrolet two-door hard-top, not sure of the model.ReplyDelete
Probably a Chevy Impala.ReplyDelete
1958 Chevrolet. I think it is a Bel Air. Impala was a step-up with more chrome and maybe a choice of larger 327 cubic inch engine---V8, of course.ReplyDelete

Mistake in my previous response. The 327 wasn't introduced until 1962 in the Corvette. Before that you could get Hi-perf enhancements on the 283 like dual carbs, high lift cam, etc. '58 was also the year of the debut of the "W motor" 348, later displacement increases gave us the 409, made famous in songs, at dragstrips and on circle tracks all across America. "She's real fine, my 409". :)Delete
Definitely a '58. One of those rare one model year only cars from GM as they were tooling up for the more futuristic looking "batwing finned" cars of '59-'60.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the info!Delete
Sure. I dunno much be I know a wee bit about old cars. :)Delete
1958 Chevy Impala Sport CoupeReplyDelete
The gas pumps are pretty cool, but oh how I would love a ride in that car! Better yet, I would love to own it.ReplyDelete
It's a 1958 Chevrolet Biscayne two-door sedan.ReplyDelete
