Gorgeous body off frame restoration that was completed over a 5 year span and finished in 2022. Pictures speak a thousand words, and we have a binder of them documenting the entire build! This Impala\'s got it going on. 383 stroker with dual quads, 5 speed Tremec, posi, air conditioning, genuine leather interior and much more.

EXTERIOR: The fit and finish is excellent! Over $15,000 worth of new sheet metal and panels was used for the restoration meaning this car is completely rust free. Painted in a very rich Victory Red that looks amazing with all the stainless trim and chrome. Speaking of the trim it has a bunch of it! Optional bumper and door handle guards, rocker moldings, fuel door trim, dual bowtie mirrors and even a spotlight. The trim is new and the bumpers were chromed and sparkle like new. All new glass was ordered and installed along with the weather stripping. All the SS machined turned trim looks new and really compliments the style of this 63. It\'s stanced beautifully on 15\" polished American Racing Torque Thrust wheels with like new BF Goodrich tires.

INTERIOR: Immaculate new interior. Taking a look at the door panels, they look stock, however they\'ve been handmade and are genuine leather. That\'s right, an all new leather interior from a custom upholstery shop was installed. Talk about taking things the extra mile. The padded dash looks new, and the lower portion is painted nicely in gloss black. It has a factory tachometer on the driver side, spotlight hand control, and a gorgeous woodgrain sport steering wheel. Vintage A/C controls are installed as well as a Retro Sound audio with Bluetooth. The original center console sits in the middle with a Hurst shifter and 5-spd white shift knob. All the carpeting is new and fits very nicely. The front and rear seats are recushioned and reupholstered with genuine leather.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Under the hood sits a monster 383 stroker with dual quads. The owner claimed once all 8 barrels are opened up it makes 600HP. It has aluminum heads with roller rockers, Edelbrock intake, and dual Edelbrock carbs. Hooker long tube headers are connected to the motor. CPP upgraded power steering, CPP power brakes were added as well. The Vintage Air works like a dream. A larger corvette 7 blade clutch fan was used for the higher hp motor. All the hoses and wiring is nice and tidy. Someone spent some time making sure this car was show worth everywhere you look.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Under the trunk lid and jambs are painted gloss red, and new weather stripping was installed. The entire trunk was completely painted gloss red instead of a spatter paint. It has a new carpeted mat cut to fit precisely and is Velcroed in so you can remove it to clean when needed. It gives the trunk a very clean, visually appealing look. Mounted nicely on the upper deck is a spare wheel and tire.

UNDERSIDE: Stunning body off the frame restoration. Everything is new. The front independent suspension consists of CPP tubular control arms, CPP power steering, and new CCP shocks/springs. The power brakes are CCP disc in the front and drum in the rear. All new fuel and brake lines were installed, as well as a new stainless steel gas tank. The dual exhaust is new and has dual mufflers. Looking up at the motor and trans they are extra clean. It has a Moroso extra capacity oil pan and high torque starter. It has a new Tremec TKO 5-spd transmission with a heavy duty scatter shield. The rear end is a new Auburn posi-traction with 3.73 gears. All new floors, and trunk were installed. The x frame was completely redone in gloss black epoxy.

SERVICE: Our shop inspection included. Replacing the speedo and gears. Replaced the tachometer, adjusted carbs and timing, repaired brake lights, replaced rear axle seal, and installed new e brake cables.

This Super Sport has everything you want and then some. Someone spent 5 years taking this car down to a bare shell and completely rebuilding it; now you get to enjoy his efforts!

A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car\'s condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum.
