Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
She's real fine my 409. Oh yeah, this 1963 Chevrolet Impala convertible with a great white-on-blue appearance and four-on-the-floor is the exact kind of car the Beach Boys would love... and so will you.
Is there a better was to cruise than in an iconic classic that they write songs about? And it only gets better when in a droptop presented in a great sunny-day color combo. You can see big investment in the white paint. It looks similar to the period-correct Ermine White - a great color that was even shared with the Corvette. Yet on this Impala, the modern professional respray gives this classic the kind of luster that reminds this was the top dog in the full-size lineup. And we all know the convertibles were the rarest Impala body style by far. The light blue top not only adds even more distinction with its color, but also it fits tight enough to almost look like a hardtop. Plus, this one really gets the details right. The bumpers are mirror-like; the full-length side arrow trim feels like its pointing this car forward; and it's finished off with the Impala's iconic six-taillight panel. Diving even deeper into this droptop's details means recognizing the little things like the 409 badges on the front fender, SS badging on the rear fender, and the unmistakable upgrade of American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.
With the touch of a button, the power convertible top lowers to reveal a light blue interior so you get to show off this great color combo no matter if you're buttoned up or open to the world. The right preservation and restoration investments have created a terrific atmosphere. The premium button-top seats match the door panels so perfectly. As a full-size droptop, there's plenty of room for family and friends so it's easy to imagine cruising the beaches in an interior that's as deep and blue as the ocean. But even when it's just you riding solo, this convertible will get your heart racing. As you slip behind the highly-stylized steering wheel, the power steering keeps to well in control. Your right hand will rest comfortably on the Hurst shifter and your eyes will spot the Sun SuperTach. So while this Chevy might have an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, your senses tell you that your real favorite soundtrack begins under the hood.
Those fender callouts weren't lying about the big block 409 cubic-inch V8 filling the engine bay. This period-correct block looks fantastic with the shiny valve covers and the large shiny air grabber proclaiming its superiority. Plus, there have been all the right investments like newer pulleys, belt, hoses, fan shroud, and alternator. But just because this one has a stellar presentation from every angle, doesn't mean you should miss out on driving it. You'll love experiencing how it fires up with a great big block grumble thanks to inhaling through Weber four-barrel carburetor and exhaling from a dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this big block and its bass-filled soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission.
We love the way this car looks, but even more than that, we love how it moves. No other piece of history gives you huge power and wind in your hair. So, if you like your horsepower with a big dose of class, this Impala delivers in a powerful way. Call today!!!
