Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
With its fresh V8 and air ride suspension, this iconic bubble-top 1960 Chevrolet Impala really delivers the icon you've dreamed about. And that's before you dig into the details on a ton of terrific features that maximize the showmanship of this true classic.
Chevrolet must have known they were making a true classic in 1960, because they integrated so many styling elements into the Impala. So while the bubble-top hardtop silhouette certainly is the headline, take some time to appreciate all the elements that really make this a full icon. There's a crisp line that starts at the front and the runs the full length of the car. But in the middle of the door line they also add trim to highlight the start of the impossibly long tailfin. And the trunk was contoured just so it could integrate into that wraparound fin. It's the kind of expensive work that you only get when the stylists are in charge. This one loves to show off the jet age everywhere from the dual tailfin hood ornaments to the red streak that looks bold rocketing along the side of this crisp white coupe. Plus, there are true classic cruiser details, like the rear fender skirts and dual aerials. These are mixed with well-integrate upgrades, like the Impala's six taillight arrangement that now has LED lights. And you can dial in the right stance for those modern Ridler 20-inch polished alloys thanks to the adjustable air ride suspension.
While the exterior is white with a hint of red, the color theme switches for the interior. It's an absolutely eye-catching setup that has intricate detail. We especially like the red seats with white trim and houndstooth cloth inserts. And the door panels match, too! Plus, the red carpeting, red dash, and white headliner deliver a full uniform package. It has such a classic feel, right down to the rebuilt AM radio that's cranking out tunes. And since you're going to want to show off something this attractive, it has the rare power windows feature (even the side vent windows are powered!) That means you never have to leave the driver's seat whenever you want to roll down all the glass and really show off this bubble-top hardtop.
The show-stopping package continues under the hood. The smooth and dark inner fenders funnel your attention to the polish and bold block of the motor in the middle. The full presentation looks exceptionally fresh, and that's for a good reason. The consignor states the motor was rebuilt around 300 miles ago. This is a 350 cubic-inch V8 with performance upgrades like a Edelbrock 600 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, and shorty headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. Plus, you'll also see the right supporting components, like an HEI ignition and aluminum radiator w/electric fan. It's a strong-running package, which is exactly what you want in a cruiser Impala like this. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front really make it easy to enjoy.
With a color combo like this and a terrific air ride suspension, you know this is the bubble-top coupe that loves to turn heads. So if you want people to take notice of you, don't miss this Chevy. Call today!!!
