Yes, this 1959 Chevrolet Impala convertible really is as spectacular as it looks. Actually, it's even better than you think it is, and regardless of whether the wheels work for you or not, this is a car that absolutely demands attention. Under the skin, it's quite stock, complete with a 348 V8 and a few upgrades that make it a delight to cruise.

You can paint a car with fins just about any color you want and it'll look good, but choosing an ideal '50s hue like Sierra Gold (a 1956 color) makes it truly sparkle. The '59 Impala earns all the attention it gets the hard way, by looking absolutely amazing, and getting it there was a job that required equally huge amounts of time and money. The dramatic bodywork is laser straight, the hood fits extremely well, and the gaps around the door are excellent, all indicative of high-quality work and good base stock. The '59 Chevys, including the Impala, were all-new and the look was one of the most dramatic changes in any GM showroom that year. From the rocket-inspired fender ornaments to the flattened fins to the highly stylized taillights, this car looks like sculpture on wheels. And every interesting curve and shape is highlighted by a piece of beautifully restored chrome trim which make the car look ornate and highly detailed.

The stylish plaid seat covers make the copper-colored vinyl look crisp and sharp and the rest of the interior was upholstered to match. Sure, it's way-out '50s funky, but isn't that the whole point of owning a car like this? Who wants plain old red or black or white on a car this dramatic? The upholstery is in excellent condition, including the well-trimmed door panels and correct carpets which have just a bit of black mixed in for contrast. That two-tone steering wheel frames a set of beautiful gauges in their own pods, all flanking a big speedometer in the middle. Very subtle under-dash A/C vents retain the '50s look but keep the car cool under any circumstances, and a modern AM/FM/cassette stereo fits neatly in the original radio's slot and even uses the factory knobs. Nice! A white power convertible top closes up easily and stows under a copper-colored boot and the gargantuan trunk is finished with a correct mat and full-sized spare tire.

That's a correct 348 cubic inch V8 under the hood, easy to recognize due to its W-shaped valve covers. It was rebuilt about 9000 miles ago, so it's quite fresh. Lots of chrome dress-up from various cars adds a show-quality look, and it's all anchored by a Chevy Orange block. A modern master cylinder and power brake booster, plus a chrome alternator and A/C compressor all add modern reliability and comfort and the stout 348 delivers plenty of performance. The car's original 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission still lives behind the engine and powers what appears to be the original rear end. You'll note that the dual exhaust system is new, the springs, sway bars, and shocks are fresh, and there are power front disc brakes for safety. It sits right thanks to a few sensible suspension tweaks and those are 17-inch Torque Thrust wheels wrapped in beautiful 235/55/17 Diamondback Classic whitewall radials.

This absolutely stunning Impala gets everything right: the right look, the right powerplant, and the right stance. If you're going to drive a '50s car, you may as well make a statement doing it and this car nails it. Call today!
