“Peggy Sue” selling October 1st at Freedom Car Auctions


Occasionally a classic car hits the market that has special meaning.  Although this 1958 has an older restoration you would never know it. In 58 and in commemoration of Chevrolet’s 50th anniversary, this car was ordered with Cay Coral and Arctic White.

It is equipped with a 283 V8 and automatic transmission. Not only is it a beautiful collector car, but there’s another aspect that makes this car a one-of-a-kind. If you look on the Quarter panel skirts, they bear the signature of Peggy Sue Gerron. We all remember the song “Peggy Sue” and the story behind it. It’s probably the most famous song about a girl. Unfortunately, we lost Peggy on October 1, 2018, now 4 years later her beautiful 1958 Impala will be offered at NO RESERVE on October 1 at Freedom Car Auctions at the Choctaw Casino and Resort in Durant, Oklahoma.

The lucky buyer of this classic will also receive Peggy Sue’s red scrapbook of the history and restoration of vehicle. Rock N Roll began in the 50’s with Elvis and Buddy Holly. Don’t miss your chance to not only buy a piece of beautiful automotive artwork and history, but also a piece of Rock N Roll history.

This car is believed to be previously purchased and owned by the 50’s rock star legend and inductee into the Grammy Hall of Fame, Buddy Holly.  While no documentation exists to officially substantiate his ownership, we can document the ownership of this piece to Peggy Sue Gerron, the woman Buddy Holly sang the hit song in 1957 about, “Peggy Sue,” written by Jerry Allison and Norman Petty.

Peggy Sue’s ownership of this vehicle is well documented. The 1958 Impala bears her autograph on each of the fender skirts, and a copy of the title reflecting her name. Her family will be at the auction to speak to this amazing car’s history, and will be selling some of her personal memorabilia.

This beautifully restored 1958 Impala was the beneficiary of a complete restoration a number of years ago and still shows and runs exceptionally well.  It was ordered new in Cay Coral with Arctic White roof paint combination which Chevrolet used to celebrate its 50th anniversary.  In addition, it is equipped with the historic 283 cubic inch V8 and an automatic transmission, fender skirts, spinner hubcaps, twin antennas, and outside mirrors.

This vehicle is being sold “NO RESERVE” and will include Peggy Sue’s actual red scrapbook of the history and restoration of the vehicle.
