1958 Chevrolet Brookwood

BROOKWOOD: DESIGNED FOR BIG DOINGS! was how the sales literature promoted their mid-range station wagons for 1958.

Although they didn't share the Series name, Brookwoods had the same trim level as the Biscayne models and replaced the Two-Ten.

The Brookwood station wagon came in two versions: the six passenger with a base price of $2,571 and the 9 passenger priced at $2,678. Both had 4-doors and came with a 235.5 cubic inch "Blue Flame" 6-cylinder engine with 3-speed manual transmission as standard.

Another $107 would have got you the base V8 which was a 283 cubic inch Turbo-Fire that output 185 horsepower.

The original owner of this Brookwood opted for something even more powerful and ordered the 348 Turbo-Thrust V8 with 4-barrel carburetor rated at 250 horsepower. It was a $166 option and another of five different V8s available. This car is also paired with a Powerglide automatic transmission adding another $231 to the original price.
