EXC LOOK, 383 V8, 4 SPD, FRNT PWR DISCS, PWR STEER, NICE DRIVING, GR8 SOUND, FUN
We could tell you about the full size classic luxury that this 1962 Chevrolet Impala offers, but we you're already memorized by the paint. We don't even have to mention the performance 383ci V8 under the hood, four-speed manual transmission, or restored interior before you're ready to give us a call on this cool vintage hardtop.
This is a very desirable year for the full-sized Impala. Chevy revamped the coupe's styling to have a thicker, more aggressive c-pillar. This was combined with a chrome separating line at roof's base to create a hardtop convertible appearance when you see the ribs in it that has remained very popular today. In the rear, Chevy signified the styling direction of the early 1960s by eliminating the tailfin, and it looks great with the silver paint. The top-of-the-line Impala did this nicely with a six taillight arrangement that was a standout to the car. It looks particularly sophisticated with the Cortez Silver paint, which has enough metallic element to be a great complementing shade to the trim. And that's exactly the kind of hue you want on a car like this, because it has a ton of brightwork – from the wraparound bumpers, to leaping icon on the rear panel. But the piece we like the best is the chrome strip running the length of the car in a progressive thickness. This appears like an arrow pushing the coupe forward. Add in period-correct Cragar SS wheels, and you have a shining vintage package that's both sophisticated and aggressive.
Impalas are great coupes to collect because the hardtop style hides a full-size Chevy that comfortably fits plenty of family or friends. So when it comes time to carry everyone, do it in style with the black vinyl seats, and keep them entertained with the classic-style radio that hides a more modern AM/FM/XM unit. But even if it's just you going for a classic cruise, that'll be fine because the best treats are reserved just for the driver. Sitting behind the wheel feels like time warp with the proper Impala center cap on the highly stylized rim. Plus, the wide speedometer is a great hallmark of the era. But, then your senses start to notice how the column-mounted Moon Eyes tach is a handy piece to go with the Hurst shifter. You start to realize there might some serious performance under the hood.
One twist of the key, and no one will believe this is a mild-mannered classic anymore. The rumble of the dual exhaust gives its performance nature away instantly. Under the hood is a 383 cubic-inch stroker motor. It has a tidy presentation in the engine bay, but more importantly, behind the style is the substance of a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, and long tube headers. Best of all, you have complete control over the sound and fury of this powerplant thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. But more than just a go-fast kind of classic, as you look over all the photos (undercarriage, too) you start to get the picture of a very thoughtful restoration. And that's why this Impala includes power steering and front disc brakes – it wants to be your favorite all-around classic.
Complete with owner's manual, such nicely built cars usually don't have this kind of affordability. So you know you need to hurry if you want to take this Impala home. Call today!!
