1958 Chevrolet Impala by RMD Garage April 2019 Catalog Cover Car

1958 Chevrolet Impala by RMD Garage April 2019 Catalog Cover Car

Our April 2019 catalog cover shoot brought us down to Long Beach, Ca for a visit to our friends at RMD Garage. Thank you to Ralph Holguin and his colleagues for the hospitality and tour of their incredible shop and design center.

The feature vehicle for our photo shoot is "Ebony" the beautiful 1958 Chevrolet Impala featured on RMD Garage's TV Show. The Impala is finished in triple black BASF paint, custom one-off Raceline wheels, and full custom leather interior. The paint and bodywork was all done by the team at RMD Garage. 

Under the hood is a LS3 Chevrolet engine that puts out 500hp. The engine bay was fabricated and smoothed by the RMD Garage team. In the trunk, the Impala even includes custom leather luggage trunks to match the interior.

More custom touches include:

Satin black painted Eddie Motorsports valve covers

United Pacific HID headlights

Air Ride Suspension

Auto City Classics Power Windows

Custom Dakota Digital gauges

Aluminum radiator by Matson Radiator

CPP gas tank

 

Thank you to Ralph and everyone at RMD Garage for their assistance. Glad we could come to their facility and feature "Ebony."
