800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1964 Chevrolet Impala coupe is an interesting lesson in enduring honesty. It stays true to its original form, right down to the paint. It's an awesome level of preservation centered around an extremely low odometer that is documented to likely reflect the car's full actual mileage. So look at all the details - from the working AM radio to the decals on the V8 - and soon you can't help but get attached to this hardtop.
Take a moment to really appreciate what you're checking out. The code-920 Almond Fawn paint on this coupe shows all signs of being original. That's more than half a century of surviving! This car has been enjoyed over the decades when that likely meant averaging under 575 miles annually, the few marks feel more like clues than signs of use. Plus, the luster that remains makes this coupe a legend, and it will certainly make people's jaws drop when you tell them it's over 55 years old. The doors close with confidence; the wraparound chrome bumpers shine brightly; and the full-length trim is bright and straight. And with all the correct badging and wheel covers in place, you can tell someone really loved this coupe. In fact, the story we're told is that it spent decades strictly being a Sunday driver. It's the kind of presentation that also gets recognized by collectors, and so it's an Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) award-winner.
Inside is a more 1960s style presented with great preservation. The factory-correct fawn cloth & vinyl combination has all the right earth-tone inserts on the seats to give this a very cool representation of a premium '64 Impala. And side panels have a button-top retro-cool design that will attract attention every time you open the door. Of course, it wouldn't feel correct without plenty of brightwork on the dash. All the little details you want are working, like the courtesy lights, heat/defrost, and Delco AM radio. So the overall impression is a plush and preserved coupe. So you can really tell this is the one people will use to benchmark.
The engine bay really drives home the original feeling on the car where it has the right look of age, as well as the correct features, like the factory air cleaner w/decal. So it's hard to believe this 283 cubic-inch V8 is anything but the original powerhouse. It has been maintained correctly to fire up easily and idle smoothly. This is genuinely meant to be an easy cruiser, and that's why it features a Powerglide automatic transmission and power steering.
This is the kind of classic where you feel like a custodian of true history. So if you're ready to write your own chapter in this Impala's book, you need to call now.
