How to Replace the Headlamps on a 1958 Chevrolet

In 1958, Chevrolet released six vehicles: The Delray, the Biscayne, the Bel Air, the Impala, the Nomad and the Corvette. Replacing the headlamp on any of the vehicles is fairly simple. The 1958 Chevrolet vehicles have several screws mounting the headlamp assembly to the engine compartment. Once the screws are removed the electrical connector is unplugged and the headlamp assembly comes right out.
