AJ's Car of the Day: 1958 Chevrolet Yeoman Wagon 2-Door

Car: Chevrolet Yeoman Wagon (2-Door)

Year: 1958

What makes it special: The Yeoman wagon was only produced by Chevrolet in 1958, making it what many refer to as a "one year wonder."

What made it famous: Out of the 187,000 Chevrolet wagons built for 1958, only 17,000 2-Door models were ever produced and only available as the Yeoman, so very few of the rare 2-door Yeoman wagons remain today.

Why I would want one: It is undeniably cool, and it makes for awesome street rod material reminiscent of the extremely popular Nomad models of 1955 - 1957.

Fun fact: Because it was the bottom-of-the-line Yeoman, it was available with a straight six, but you could order the top-of-the-line 348 cubic inch big-block, or even a 283 "fuelie" V8 for it.
