1966 Chevrolet Impala Convertible
1966 Chevrolet Impala Convertible
Flashy muscle cars are fun, and polished customs are nice, but, for some folks, there's nothing better than a well-done cruiser. No gimmicks, no frills and no drama; just sun and fun -- LOTS of fun.
This exceptionally clean Impala is a classy stunner that mixes 350 cubic inches of power along with some nifty add ons and a comprehensive restoration and tasteful aesthetics. And if you're looking for a cool classic that's road ready, show-ready and just plain battle-ready, it's the perfect way to go to your local cruise in and turn some heads.
From its virtually blemish free dual headlamp grille wearing a small bow tie and script “Chevrolet” badging, to the sleek long perfect hood covered in Danube Blue respray, then on to the spacious trunk lid that takes up more acreage than the average new home. Side panels are straight as the stainless trim molding that stretches from stem to stern. Brite work is near perfect and correct with the galloping impala and V8 on the front quarter panel. The white convertible top powers up and down with the flick of a switch and is clean as a whistle…but why would one ever put it up?! American Racing 5-spoke chromed wheels are one all four corners and are wrapped with Futura Super Sport GLS rubber.
Sliding into the front two tone blue vinyl split bench, I feel a little giddy, like I'm getting ready to go into my sales man's office at the dealer and start twisting his arm. Yes, it's that nice! Door panels are good, dash is pristine, and all is correct. So correct I harken back to when my father owned one of these beautiful cars, and would let me sit behind the wheel and turn the key to get her running. That speedometer style is burned into my mind as typical Chevrolet from the mid 1960's. AM radio? Check! Air Conditioning? Check! All very nice with just a few chips on the shiny surrounding molding of the dash. Dark blue carpet floods the floor and is topped and protected by Impala rubber mats.
Gazing at the 350ci mill with HEI Ignition, Edelbrock Performer Intake, a 600CFM Holly Carburetor, and ceramic coated long tube headers, one can feel the performance on this cruiser. A Turbo 350 3-speed automatic transmission is attached to the rear.
Slight surface rust is seen on the underside, but really very clean. Large pipe pristine exhaust snake their way back from the ceramic headers, and end in a nice throaty growl. 55BC power front disc brakes have been installed, and billet engine pulleys can be seen with a glance upward from underneath.
A wonderful, turn key convertible cruiser that drips with mid '60's style, and class. Small but important engine upgrades add to the performance, and couple that with the condition of the exterior and interior, and this car will have you seeing blue.
