The Car History of Alex Beloff III

THIS BLACK 1958 IMPALA COUPE HAD A SMALL BLOCK V-8 WITH A RELIABLE BUT VERY SORRY POWER GLIDE.  PAINT WAS HORRIBLY SCRATCHED AND OXIDIZED.  I GOT IT LOOKING VERY NICE AND SOLD IT FOR A PROFIT QUICKLY BECAUSE THEY DID NOT HAVE THE OVERWHELMING APPEAL OF TODAY’S MARKET ESPECIALLY WHEN COVERED IN TWO FEET OF INDIANAPOLIS SNOW.

IN 1968 WE DIDN’T HAVE THE CALIFORNIA ORIGINAL PARTS GROUP OR YEAR ONE FOR AFFORDABLE PARTS.  I BECAME A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR TO THE COFFERS OF JULIUS AND MICKEY MAURER, OWNERS OF THE BEST AND MOST FAMOUS JUNK YARD IN AMERICA AT THAT TIME — WRECKS INC., INDIANAPOLIS.
