Is it missing trim or its had or had the top stainless for the belv added?

Missing it's rear beaver panels.. Nice looking car and the colour is quite nice but might have some issues under that paint.. Heater has been removed under dash and engine bay or maybe didn't have one.

Wish it had a better description.

Apart from the rear valence, it looks like it is all there. The top rain rail trim should be standard on the Belvedere.
It looks pretty nice in the images. I wonder if the original seats are under the covers? The interior door panels look fantastic.

I believe it is missing the lower trim. The sedan looks to be the only type that got the single trim with 'upsweep'.

Yeah that's what stumped me was the lower trim. I thought both 2 and 4 door 1958 HT's had full trim. Did any Ht's come out with that style steering wheel?

I'm not knocking the car. As I said before, I don't mind it. Just curious if it's correct or not.. Learning curve..

Yes, that is the standard wheel. The deluxe wheel can be ordered, and if it came with power steering it would come with the deluxe wheel with a center cap saying 'POWER STEERING'. Did you see it is a heater delete car? I have been looking for a dash trim like the one on this car. Marc.

If it was originally a monotone car or had the basic two-tone (roof different from body) without the SporTone - then it did not get the lower trim. Only cars ordered with SporTone or the SporTone inserts got the lower trim.

I recognize the car, I can't for the life of me recall who owned it previously but there can't be THAT many single trim, yellow, radio/heater delete 1958 Plym Belvedere 4-dr HT's out there. There were only 18,194 to begin with.

Nice catch, Fins! Those images go WAY back!
Now that you post those, I remember the car too. I think that was from an eBay auction MANY moons ago.
The interior is spot on - it must be the same car.

It's definitely the same car, I have a few other photos including an underhood pic showing the same chrysler a/c style radiator with the upper tank outlet on the far right side instead of more towards the center which is what it should have. The engine has been repainted because it was red. I wonder which way is actually original for the car, monotone yellow or yellow and black. Either way I suppose it's a miracle it isn't red. I like unusual cars like this one and it reminds me of my first 58 2-dr HT which was monotone iceberg white with the same single upper trim and a green/white interior, heater, radio, safety package, PS, and power-pack.

I'm sure the steering wheel is the same just repainted.
