1962 Chevrolet Impala SS

1962 Chevrolet Impala SS

The 3rd generation Impala ran from 1961-1964 and would end up being one of the most important American cars to date. These were the game changing years in which the Super Sport and the world famous 409 engine were released. The SS Impala played an integral role in formulating what we now know as the original muscle cars.

Here in the classy corridors of the Classic Auto Mall we have all kinds of cars with all kinds of purposes. Some classics to be shown, others to be driven, and others to do both. Here we have a classic that exemplifies early muscle cars. It is to be driven and can be shown with ease. Read on!

From its chromed bezel dual headlight flanking egg crate grille, and lower wrap around bumper, to the aluminum machined pattern spear at its belt line, and the dual sets of three taillights within more aluminum trim, and lower bumper, this car sports plenty of nice brite-work, and chrome to feast your eyes on. Wrap around chrome window surrounds, and cursive “Impala SS” badging with the galloping Impala in a circle, and the crossed flags V badge on both front quarter panels shines brightly against its Honduras Maroon base coat. Paint is very nice and is miles deep. A few scratches and dings are seen mostly on the lower parts of this car, but they are minor. The front aluminum grille is slightly bent otherwise this car is looking fine on the exterior. And lest I forget, it has knock off hub style wheel coverings.

As we swing open the 1 of 2 doors on this hardtop, we are met with warm, (fawn), beige square pattern stitching, and chromed “buttons” if you will…delineating the squares. A curved thin molding separated these squares from a horizontal ribbed pattern below and embedded throughout are the near perfect handles for window cranking, and door opening. As we move inside 2 nicely restored buckets, framed in chrome flank a center console that is very thin and shoehorned between the buckets, and reaching no further than the seats. Seats are covered in warm smooth gray for the bolsters and the inserts are a light background with gray striped broadcloth. Beautifully chromed tubs support the backs of these seats. In back is a matching rear bench. In their tops are more stitched and buttoned rectangular panels just like the doors. A rear bench in the same pattern, is across the back with an iconic rear speaker between the top of the bench-style seats. A futuristic stylish early midcentury modern near perfect dash with original gauges knobs and pulls. All original for the steering wheel in very good condition fronts the dash. Very nice thick pile gold carpeting covers the floors, and a warm beige, (fawn), headliner hangs tightly above.

The 327ci V8 has been reworked and was restored in 1991. The engine presents beautifully and has an “orange” (red if you will) block, and valve covers, and could not be cleaner. On top it is fitted with a single 4-barrel carburetor and on back a 2-speed automatic Powerglide transmission is bolted on. All looking good and nicely documented as to work done over the life of this current consignor's ownership. All clean under this hood.

Power drum brakes are on all 4 corners, and they sit within a lightly surface rusted structure of steel, and undercoated floor pans and rockers. Independent coil springs are upfront and on the back is a 4 link with coil sprung suspension.

A quick starter and easy driver with nice acceleration, good bias free panic stopping and all functions working as they should be.

Overall Impala SS from 1962 this car presents very nicely and goes like a rocket ship. With its period correct engine, and all maintained, nice interior, the exterior is beautifully preserved too. A fine example of early muscle that is on a few steroids.
