BUILT 350 V8, FRONT DISCS, PS, CORRECT ROMAN RED, STRAIGHT CAR, PRICED TO SELL!
The 1960 Chevrolet Impala is one of the most interesting cars in all of this long-standing nameplate. Some of the most iconic styling elements were combined for this year only. So to find this unique year that has been customized in all the right places really makes for one special coupe at a surprisingly affordable price.
Refinished in correct Roman Red (code 923), this pretty Impala shows off the dual nature of the cars of the period. Long, lean, and surprisingly luxurious, it was Chevy's top-of-the-line. Yet for performance-minded people, it was also a threat on the street if you liked to go fast. The bubble top design of this hardtop with its skinny c-pillar and wraparound rear window is iconic. The red paint makes an instant impression and good finish quality means that it shows well when you take it to the local cruise night. The front end was toned down from the outrageous 1959s, which makes the wraparound chrome bumpers look sleeker. The tailfin is so massive and integral it starts at the door and doesn't end until the trunk lock (some stylists said the idea was these tailfins were getting so large they really had to lay them on their side!) Running the same length as the fin is the cool jet inspired white and chrome trim that's a hallmark of these premium speedy Chevys. But what makes the 1960 car so special was the return of the now-iconic triple taillight arrangement that came to symbolize splashing big money on a Chevrolet coupe. This coupe turns all the great 1960 features up a notch with classic custom elements like the dual aerials, fender skirts, and the chrome headlights. Plus, this Impala has some very modern touches like the bright Ridler wheels that are staggered for an attention-grabbing aggressive stance.
If you thought the exterior red was dazzling, just wait until you see the interior. The vinyl has been given the full custom tuck and roll treatment on both seats and all the surrounding panels. So people will be instantly impressed the moment they peek inside. But the customization doesn't end there. Your left hand goes on the embossed red metallic steering wheel, and your right one will love the line lock shifter. The dash has been recently repainted to match the exterior gloss, and it features the five individual gauge pods to relay information. Plus, you can easily spot the addition of the SunPro tach on the tilt steering column. The radio looks correct next to all the bright lower dash trim, but it's actually an upgraded AM/FM /cassette stereo with a digital tuner, so it's adaptable to modern music players.
The small block wasn't up to the legendary 350 displacement in 1960, but it fits in just as easily as the 283 did. Chrome dress-up parts advertise the presence of an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and performance intake. Plus, the headers add some performance and extra growl to the dual exhaust. But the real benefit of what's in the engine bay is felt on the street. The motor fires up easily, and upgrade in displacement gives it power to spare. Add in the other great driving features like the TH350 three-speed automatic, power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern Nexen tires, and this is a custom cruiser with true go-anywhere appeal.
This is the right year Impala at an unbeatable price. We could tell you to hurry up and get here, but you already know a custom coupe like this is going quickly. Call today!!!
