DESCRIPTION

1968 Chevrolet Impala SS



The impala is one of the most common and most graceful of all Africa's antelopes. A slender, agile creature, it can clear formidable obstacles and run at speeds faster than 60km/h. They are fleet runners who can leap up to 30 feet in length and 10 feet in height. They use their tremendous speed and agility to avoid predation, and seemingly for pure enjoyment. The name 'Impala' comes from the Zulu language meaning 'gazelle'. Aptly named, the Chevrolet version introduced in 1958, continued to emulate its animal namesake through years of design modifications, and power options made available.



For consignment, a full complete restoration right down to the now powder coated frame. This car can be gone over with a fine-tooth comb, and you will be very hard pressed to find a fault. Every aspect of this car is showroom!



Exterior

Long straight rust-free steel panels are minding their gaps very nicely. From the long hood framed below buy a pristine grille containing dual headlights and a shiny bumper running through the egg crate grille, back to all the seriously dark tinted glass surrounds, all the way to the gently sloping rear deck which ends in a trio of inset lights into the rear bumper. Miles deep red paint combines with the like new chrome trimmings, and it's all framed by Cragar polished 5-spoke wheels wrapped by Cooper Cobra radial G/T's. All badging is excellent. Chrome tipped dual exhaust is peeking out from under the bumper.



Interior

Opening the doors and black straight molded vinyl with some thin chromed accenting and black knobbed cranks are on these panels. Inside floating in a sea of black carpeting are beautiful low back bucket seats draped in smooth black vinyl bolsters with red tuck and roll inserts. The rear bench stretching across the back of the car has the same pattern. The buckets sit within a black molded plastic tub with some thin chromed accenting. A perfectly formed center console races to the dash between the buckets and houses a chromed ball topped shifter. The dash is all original and in clean GM form. Dash top shows no cracks or dimples and above the headliner is near perfection.



Drivetrain

Under the hood in a showroom clean and detailed engine bay, sits a 327ci V8 and it just gleams. It is topped with a 4-barrel carburetor and has a 4-speed manual Saginaw transmission on back. A 12-bolt 3.08 rear axle is on as well. All hoses are braided stainless steel, an aluminum radiator is installed. and the mill exhales through headers. All parts and bolt ons are like new throughout.



Undercarriage

The frame has been stripped and blasted, then repainted in a perfect black. All floor pans, rockers, wheel wells and underpinnings are bathed in the red of the exterior. No road dirt is present, and independent front suspension, and a 4 link with coil springs is on back. Power drum brakes are on all 4 corners and a Turbo muffler system is now on.



Drive-Ability

This car is an awesome build and the test drive did not disappoint. Ran like a dream, and all functions were working perfectly. Need I say more?!
