The essence of Chevrolet was providing dependable, affordable cars for working people. Over the years, Chevy produced many bare-bones models as basic transportation for small business owners. And one of those models was the Yeoman. Quite rare and a one-year model only, the Yeoman was a baseline Chevrolet station wagon in a two and four-door version.
Basically, the Yeoman could get any Chevrolet engine as any other full-size model for 1958. But the base power came from a standard straight six with 3.9-liters of displacement. However, since the Yeoman was a base model, the equipment level was low.
For instance, it only had two tail lamps on the back. But the Bel Air had four and the Impala had six. And that is how you could distinguish them on the street.
