Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
Get ready for cruising the boulevard or checking out the car shows by coming down and checking out this beautiful Impala SS convertible. Being a full sized hot-rod means that you can load it up with friends for some fun on cruise night or both friends and luggage too for a road trip.
Looking good in its factory correct Lemonwood Yellow, this car is ready to roll. The smooth body lines start with a slight angle back at the leading edge of the front fenders and flare out a bit as they flow up and over the rear fenders. Crossed racing flags with 396 Turbo Jet as well as Super Sport in script appear on the front fenders. A stylish chrome grill holds quad headlights and a Chevrolet Impala SS badge underlined by a sharp looking chrome bumper. A line of chrome trim looks great running down the full length of the car and the wheel wells and rocker panels also get dressed out in chrome. The triple taillights on this '66 continue an Impala character trait started in '58 and look great as they pick up that chrome side trim and tie it nicely together from side to side. The large trunk has plenty of room for lots of luggage even with the power operated black convertible top folded down into it, so go ahead, load up and head out with this car.
Open the door, one that is plenty big enough for easy entry into the back seat too, and you will find an interior that is dressed out in the perfect balance of Black, chrome and brushed metal. The door panel has a long armrest with power window switches at your finger tips and a slash of chrome across the bottom. The black two-spoke steering wheel has a semi-circular chrome horn ring and a leaping Impala center button. A rectangular speedometer is set deep under the shroud of the black dash keeping the sun off of it nicely while accessory controls are set in a brushed metal panel trimmed in chrome that runs from side to side. The ventilation controls in the center include those for A/C and the T-handle shifter for the automatic transmission rises from the long center console. Black Strato-bucket front seats are comfortable and Super Sport vinyl floormats protect the black carpeting.
Pop the hood and you will find a rare treat. A numbers matching, 396 cubic inch motor. Staying in character with the factory original color on this car, this engine remains factory original stock. Of course, it produces plenty of torque to get this full-sized SS down the road with plenty of speed and does it while keeping it composure, so why mess with success. The black air cleaner assembly announces it with a 396 Turbo-Jet 325HP sticker while chrome valve covers add a splash of flash. Signs of good maintenance include a new brake booster and master cylinder that put the squeeze on front disc brakes as well as a new radiator. Everything is neat and clean and properly routed including Air conditioning lines that look fresh and are wrapped in protective insulation. Power flows back through a 3-speed automatic transmission to a 12-bolt rear end. Coil springs front and rear provide a nice ride while matching sway bars at both ends make for a good handling car and SS wheel covers complete the picture on this car.
Get ready for summertime fun with the roomy, fast, and rare Impala SS convertible. Come on down and check it out!
