4610 Pet Lane
Here's the car you want today because it's the one you never got as a teenager. This 1960 Chevrolet Impala has the tri-power V8, four-on-the-floor, and a terrific color combination seen throughout this bubble top coupe. So while you could never convince dad this big block bruiser was the perfect family car back in the day, we doubt it will take much persuasion for you to fall in love all over again.
Tuxedo Black is a great color for GM fans. After all, it's both sleek and premium, and that feeling directly extends to this coupe. The dual aerials and fender skirts only add to this vintage cruiser appeal. Obviously, the jet age was in full swing in 1960, and few cars embodied the look more than the Impala. The white insert on the quarter panels is a fantastic piece that looks like a vapor trail leading up to the aircraft-inspired trim, and it also hints at what you'll find inside. The fins were toned down a bit from the previous year, which makes for perfect icons today. Plus, many enthusiasts regard the 1960-only front end to be the most attractive of the period. But the real show-stopper is the profile. The bubble top design of this hardtop with its skinny C-pillar and wraparound rear window is iconic. Chrome is critical on this car, and it's all in fine condition from the nicely detailed grille, to the tailfins outlined in polished stainless. You'll even appreciate the bright cruiser updates, like the half chrome headlights and the full polish wheels.
Just as predicted by the exterior trim, the interior has some nice white details. But of course, what really grabs your attention is the red. The two colors are masterfully interwoven in this stylish setup. You even have it as part of the houndstooth-style inserts in the seats and door panels! There has been a careful eye to keep this looking classic and cool - that's why the upgraded AM/FM radio w/separate CD player has a retro-style appearance. While family and friends will love riding in this roomy pillarless hardtop, the best treats are reserved just for you. After all, the Impala got a stylish dual-spoke steering wheel, and it gives you a clear view of the five individual gauge pods that look particularly sporty. That performance feeling gets heightened as you spot the auxiliary gauges and grab the Hurst shifter.
Open the hood to see the king of 1960. The big block motor maxed out at 348 cubic inches that year. Sure, we would eventually get to that displacement in the small block V8s. But in a coupe that has such a period-correct presentation so far, we love to see the right displacement and a period-correct presentation filling every inch under the hood. We know you love how the orange block and polished finned valve covers just seem to radiate power from inside that dark engine bay. And the three air grabbers show off a triple set of Rochester dual-carburetors that made these Chevys street kings. And the carbs and fuel system were recently given a solid investment to stay running strong. So you really get to enjoy firing this one up and hearing the distinct rumble of the dual exhaust. You get to harness the tri-power the best way possible with the control of the four-speed manual transmission. But more than just the best power and delivery, this Chevy also knows how to be a fine cruiser thanks to front disc brakes and wide modern tires.
A tri-power bubble-top coupe is the kind of classic a lot of us dream of owning. So, you need to hurry if you want this Chevy power icon to be yours. Call today!!!
