NICE RED ON RED DROP TOP, 348CI MOTOR, TRI-POWER SETUP, POWER STEERING & BRAKES
This 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS has the great red-on-red appearance that makes the classic big block droptop irresistible, but it's the details that make you really love this iconic Chevy.
A bright red iconic Chevy convertible is the perfect way to cruise night or day. The Impala is highly collectable because the wide bright grille up front and the broad six taillight arrangement are both icons of the 60s. And it only helps that the convertible is the rarest of the bodystyles by far. The '62 had a particular style that was one of the sleekest full-size cars of the era, and that's why it's so important to get the details right. The bumpers have a mirror-like shine; the full-length stainless strips looks better than factory; and the textured aluminum tail panel has a craftsman's appearance. Diving even deeper into this droptop means recognizing the little things like the SS badging on the rear fender, intricate factory hubcaps, dual aerials, and classy fender skirts.
Bucket seats and a console are exactly what you want to see when you open the door to get a true Super Sport feeling. But more than just the right SS features, you'll love that this has been given all the right restoration and preservation so that the button-top seats match the door panels so perfectly. They both coordinate with the red dash, carpets, and period-correct floor mats for a full uniform appearance. But breaking up this sea of crimson is the kind of brightwork that made the '60s an iconic decade. You see it on places like the long dash panel, rear speaker panel, and the factory steering wheel. In fact, speaking of the wheel, don't you just love how the white rim inserts match the power folding top? And even though this seems to be a '60s fashion statement, the Impala was really built for driving. The wide speedometer covers all the auxiliary gauges below it, and you even get a period-correct tach mounted on the column.
You're going to love lifting the hood at car shows, because everyone will instantly gravitate to the sight of a big block Chevy with a triple duce package on top. We know it does say 409 on the valve covers, but really this is 348 cubic-inch V8. That means it shares the iconic W-block with the Beach Boys favorite, and it fits the correct triple set of Rochester two-barrel carburetors... and best of all, it's still a big power package for about half the cost of a 409. And because the lineage is so close, it looks so good with the Chevy orange paint on the block and intake. Plus, there has been special attention to making sure everything from the gloss black engine bay to the belts & hoses are all extra tidy to be car show ready at a moment's notice. But more than just showing off, you'll love the experience of taking this droptop on the open road. Power steering and power brakes make the driving effortless. And the rumble that comes from the dual exhaust as it snakes its way through the X-frame is hypnotic at any speed.
