Description
1960 Chevrolet Impala

The Impala was a full size car first introduced in 1958 by Chevrolet and would go on to be the manufacturers most popular flagship passenger vehicle. It was amongst the best selling American made cars produced. They had an interesting beginning to life as they were rapidly changing with multiple redesigns in just their first few years of existence. By the time this 1960 rolled out of the factory they were already on what would be considered the 2nd generation. The .....
popular fins of the 50's era were slowly being phased out but are still present as time moved into the early 60's. The fins are more subtle but sort of fan out from the middle of the car. This makes for a very unique look and being that the cars would again be changed in 1961 means this design was only present for 1960 and the slightly different but similar 1959 version. This car is absolutely gorgeous and you are going to have a tough time finding a cleaner example. It has received a rotisserie restoration where not a single nut or bolt was left untouched. It beautifully marries stock features with modern upgrades to create a car that looks great, runs great, and can be driven anywhere. Not only that but all the work was professionally done and the car actually belongs to a local builder so you know it was done right. Prior to the restoration the car had approximately 64,000 miles on it. It was hibernating in a garage located in Fort Worth, Texas prior to being found and rescued. From there it was completely disassembled and taken all the way down to bare metal. It was completely rust free and super straight. The paint work was completed by Donnie Bright and if you have been in the car world for any period of time that name should sound familiar as he is one of the best in the business. All of the glass was replaced and remains in excellent condition. The bright work on the car is immaculate and it has a NOS complete grill and headlight doors. All of the other trim was fully refurbished and polished up to look like new. The lights, lenses, and bezels are all new as well and all of the electrical working properly thanks to the all new Painless wiring harness. Wheels can make or break a car and this one looks perfect with the 5 spoke Foose Legends under each corner. They are 18 inches up front, 20 inches in the rear and wrapped with Continental Extreme Contact tires.

The car has its original 348 motor that has been fully rebuilt. Under the hood the car is extremely clean. The motor is fitted with an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, 4 barrel Edelbrock carb, blacked out valve covers, and a Spectre open top air cleaner. The car runs great and sounds great too through the all new complete custom exhaust. It originally had a power glide transmission but that has been upgraded with a smooth shifting Turbo 350 automatic. Power is then sent back to the original rear end that has been rebuilt with new axle bearings and seals. The brakes have been completely gone through and upgraded to 4 wheel power discs with a CPP master cylinder/booster. It also has power steering and the steering box was upgraded to a CPP 500 series which is a great improvement. Peak under the car and you will see it is spotless. During the build the frame was completely sandblasted and powder coated as were the suspension components. It also received all new Prothane body and suspension bushings. Other nice upgrades include the front and rear aftermarket sway bars.

Prior to the custom designed interior being done by Keith Kirk Upholstery, the complete floor and trunk were sprayed with both Lizard Skin ceramic and Lizard Skin sound deadener. It was then lined with Boom Mat, jute pad, and all Black carpet. Next up was the perforated Alcantara seats with custom black vinyl. The door panels and headliner are also custom designed. The seat end caps were chromed and all the other interior trim was refurbished and polished. The upholstery is in excellent condition and clearly has been well cared for since completion. The custom Classic Instrument gauges look really sharp in the stock bezels and have a Red face to match the car. The Vintage Gen IV AC system includes heat/defrost and cleverly the ash tray has been modified to be a hidden center vent. It blows cold with no issues. The custom stereo features a radio and speakers from Auto Sound so you can cruise along to all your favorite tunes. The car certainly isn't lacking in trunk space and it has all been cleanly finished off as well.

The car literally needs nothing except a new garage to call home. You can comfortably hop in it and drive anywhere without concern. With a fresh 950 miles since being finished this beauty is going to put a smile on your face more many years down the road.
