800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1962 Chevrolet Impala is one of the most iconic cruisers around. So when you're looking for the best driver's classic, you'll love to find one that's a fully upgraded example that includes a custom interior, a great suspension, an overdrive transmission, a ZZ4 performance V8, and more.
This one has the right mix of iconic hardtop lines with a modern and sporty stance on 18-inch wheels. So you just know this was the kind of car that was meant to be comfortable to drive anywhere and be memorable everywhere. It has a feeling of respected quality with details like good glass, straight body panels, detailed SS trim, and doors that shut with confidence. The paint and trim are part of an older restoration. Those looking for a World of Wheels contender will likely make some added investments to the finish. But what most of us really see is the right mix of a good gloss that gets serious respect at the stoplights on a car that doesn't make us too nervous to drive on the streets.
A red interior is always terrific against the black exterior. The carpeting, door panels, and dash show off more of this solid investment. And the seats and door panels are detailed, right down to the classic button-top setup. Plus, some nice comfort features are stealthily integrated. This includes the retro-style AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth. While the driver side front window has a manual crank, the other 3 are power. And there are even provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold) again.) Just like the exterior, this was clearly set up for relaxed enjoyment, and that also means more driver info with the auxiliary gauge trio and tach on the steering column.
Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch ZZ4 performance crate motor. It has great performance features like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and aluminum heads. And there are also good all-around driving features, like the aluminum radiator and large electric fan. And this one is great for all-around driving thanks to an upgrade to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. As you look underneath, you can see fresher suspension components that have been added in the last few years, including tubular front A-arms and CPP adjustable coilovers. Add this to power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the grip of modern sport tires, and this is the classic that's easy to enjoy.
Complete with the owner's manual and build receipts, this is the iconic coupe that loves to get you noticed out on the road. Call now!
