Were some 58 impala roofs painted down to the quarter panel? I saw an all original cay coral survivor with the white roof painted down to quarter panel and not at the beadline above the c pillar. And did a few impalas carry stainless trim on this beadline like 58 bonnevilles? Thanks.

To the best of my knowledge the two tone roof was never painted to the quarter from the factory. The stainless roof trim was Pontiac only a lot of people added it to the Impala but it was never installed from the factory.

It could have been faded out over the years. My buddy just got his 59 Canadian Brookwood wagon back on the road. It still has the original paint on it. Looks like the roof was painted first at the factory and was painted down a-ways into the quarter panel. Then the bottom color was applied over that.
