Stk. 1886 1960 Chevrolet Impala
Chevrolet introduced the Impala model in 1958 and positioned it as the very top expression of the Bel Air line, available then in both coupe and convertible form. In 1960 through 1961, the second generation Impala was redesigned with more of the new Jet Age styling in mind. This marvelous example has received a full restoration from top to bottom; and in the process has received an AACA Junior Award in April of 2012, and went on to be awarded a National First Prize in the Senior Class in April of 2013. This Roman Red (923A), exterior finish is an absolute feast for the eyes; adorned with beautiful stainless steel trim and accompanied by flawless chrome bumpers, excellent glass throughout and a pair of wide accent stripes that stretch the length of the quarter panels tipped by flashy chrome rockets. As a finishing touch, its full size deluxe hubcaps, red steel wheels and white-wall B.F. Goodrich Silvertown tires truly makes this body sizzle. Even more sizzle can be found under that expansive front hood with a date code correct 348 cubic inch V8 with Tri-Power induction bolted up to a factory four-speed transmission and producing an impressive 280 horsepower and prodigious 355 lb/ft of torque. From behind the chrome single spoke steering wheel the driver is welcomed by five individual hooded gauges that keep the driver informed every step of the way as well and also echoes the exteriors aviation theme. Snuggle onto the red and white hounds-tooth cloth and vinyl bench, take hold of the white topped shifter rising up from the floor, release the clutch pedal and be prepared for a ground swell of torque to come your way; accompanied by the melodious sound behind you only a W-code could make. Open the trunk and you will find a wall to wall trunk mat, spare tire and room enough for four extra friends on drive-in night. This is a wonderful opportunity for any purveyor of all things Chevrolet to add to their collection. This is an automobile that you can not only be proud to own, but show to win as well.
