The frames are the same so it should. you might have to shift it aft a little sense the sedan bumper sticks out further than the wagons. I installed mine to fit the sedan bumper because that's what I plan to use on my nomad.Will the Jeep Hitch fit a sedan as well?
Your '58 is a beauty!! I too have considered putting a hitch on my '58 Impala. If you get yourself the hitch you can play with the allignment on the frame before you drill your holes.Ok, ok.. I sold my 57 wagon..so kinda a Non-trifive question.. BUT I have a 58 Belair 4 door sport coupe. and I want to put a hitch on it to tow my 36 kampster by Kaycraft outta Burbank years ago. you time the same will ft on my 58?, thanks in advance.

Have you thought about trying to go with an "Agreed Value" policy instead of "Stated Value"? Both those terms have defined meanings in the insurance world and are very different. Stated value can be a real risk on a collector car since the payoff in a loss is not a guaranteed amount.Roger1 I'll only tell you what I know from talking with my agent. Which is what you have to do to get the "straight" answer. I have State Farm and have a good relationship with my agent. The Nomad is covered under a Classic car policy, and covered towing the trailer. As long as it's being used within the terms of the policy. Vintage trailer rally's OK, just going camping No. If I had a "stated value" policy on the Nomad then it's like any of my other cars with no restrictions. As I'm sure you know those policies for a classic are expensive. The trailer also has its own comprehensive policy just in case I screw up.
Here's the kicker....... Both are under insured. Why would I do that? My policies have a term "current appraisal". My agent said within 2 years. To keep from having to do that I insured them for values that are easily proven though other means and high enough to cover my actual loss.
That's what I know talking with my agent. I can not stress enough that these things need to be talked about with your agent before the loss........ Also I hope never to have to bring them up with her again, if you know what I mean 3:
and the slightly modified receiver hitch:
Note the slightly modified (straightened) forward mount point which now lies flat along the frame, but in my case along the spacer. The 3/4" spacer was necessary to get the crossbar low enough to clear the tank and allow it to be placed forward to hide the receiver a little:
The end of the receiver is about a 1/2" or so forward of the bumper lip, and is not noticeable when standing behind the car - yet one of the inserts I already have is just perfect to use for my luggage trailer. The 2" (class III) hitch is overkill, but took less work to install than any 1 1/4" (class II) I could find. I'll make a dummy insert that will further hide the hitch. You can just notice the flat-4 wire connector on the bottom of the crosstube...I use a coiled connector wire that plugs in to the trailer and the plug, so no hanging wires anywhere. I don't anticipate needing to use the trailer as much as I do with the '38 since I'll have more room for stuff on short and medium trips, but I want the versatility to pull it on long trips.
