Quite original, but with the right creature comforts - like the A/C interior - this stick-shift V8-powered 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS delivers all the best for cool-cruising nostalgia.
Honduras Maroon is one of those great classic Chevy colors. It has the gloss and shines on this factory-correct color, telling you someone invested in a respray to keep it looking regal. Plus, it represents the era correctly with the pillarless hardtop profile, excellent brightwork, and even rear fender .....
skirts that come with the sale. And because this is a true Impala Super Sport, you get the right features like full SS badging, full-length trim with sporty machine-turned insert, and the hallmark six-light tail panel set within another machine-turned insert. Adding to this sporty appeal are the factory-style hubcaps and whitewall tires. So this is sleek, correct, and cool - and that's quite an impressive total package.
Inside is more 1960s style presented with great preservation. The factory-correct tan interior carries the correct bucket seats to make this a true Super Sport. Their cool button-top design coordinates with the door panels for a period-correct premium presentation. And, of course, it wouldn't feel correct without plenty of brightwork on the dash. This lends a stylistic touch to everything from the classic dual-spoke steering wheel to the factory gauge cluster. It feels like a time capsule, right down to the details like the weave of the carpeting, the lights that greet you when the door opens, and the working AM radio. As a full-size coupe, there's plenty of room to carry up to four family and friends along for the ride. So you'll be glad that the one easy-to-spot upgrade is the one that can keep everyone comfortable - cold-blowing air conditioning.
The 327 cubic-inch V8 is now an icon in the small block Chevy circles, and that legend began in 1962. So it's incredibly cool to have this displacement in this Impala. And you can tell by the way the orange on the V8 radiates within the blacked-out engine bay that they have made the right investments to keep this stylish-looking stock. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this is a terrific powerhouse. And the upgrade to a Muncie four-speed manual transmission gives you full control of the power and rumble of the dual exhaust. And it's a great cruiser with power steering, power brakes, and an ultra-tidy undercarriage that inspires drive confidence.
Here's a cool classic that has received all the right investments for show and go. So don't miss out on your turn-key dream cruiser. Call now!
