1964 Chevrolet Impala SS Coupe
A fair amount of the classics that come through the doors here at Classic Auto Mall are of a caliper that is more show than actual go. These are all wonderful cars, however when you were a kid, did you dream of trailering your car to shows, turning the key only when the sun is shining, and only driving short distances if any for fear the odometer would turn an important milestone?
Bet you did not, and there have been several consigners coming through our door that are unloading their classics for that very reason, they are tired of that routine.
If you want a great runner, you can hop in and drive it on any trip short or long, and if it rains, roll the windows up! This is the car for you, of you are a midcentury modern bow tie fan, and don't want the hassle of rummaging through endless junkyards for parts, or spending money on expensive repairs, the consigner has already done this for you. A beautifully restored Chevrolet Impala, Resto-Mod style with an updated 572ci GM crate motor that punches out 620hp at an effortless the turn of a key, make a timely visit to Classic Auto Mall.
Bathed in endless deep Candy Apple Wineberry with black ghost flames, the steel straight, evenly gapped panels are wave free, and fit like it just left the factory. All brightwork is beautiful, and correct badging is seen overall. There is even trim accenting the gas filler door...now that's 60's cool! The car sports an SS Logo on the rear quarter panel. Curved front glass with a sun filtering tint coating at the top, stretches across the back of the hood, and shows in very good condition. A large reversed hood scoop adorns the front of the car. Steel wheels accented with Chevrolet Hub caps and shiny polished rims are seen all around. I had the pleasure of logging a few miles on this baby, and it is a great driver, with an unbelievable kick.
Black vinyl with vertical tufting in the middle of plain back bolsters cover the buckets in the front and bench in back. The buckets are framed in shiny trim at the back. Door panels take on a similar version of this seat motif, and show a smattering of chrome door actuators, window cranks, and buttons all of which present in good condition. The two-tiered dash utilizes machined aluminum with small parallelogram design, and sparkles with chromed knobs and an aftermarket radio. A wood covered 3 spoked machined aluminum steering wheel fronts the quintessential Chevy styled speedo, fuel gauge and clock. We can also note the trunk is clean enough and probably large enough to live in and is wrapped with textured trunk paint.
A 572ci V8 replaces the original engine and is draped with a dual intake chrome air cleaner, as well as 572 Chevrolet orange valve covers. It inhales through a 4-barrel carburetor, and exhales through a pristine exhaust system. In between sits a 4-speed Richmond transmission, which shifts smoother than silk. The whole engine bay is showroom clean, and ready to have dinner served on it! New power disc brakes bring this car back to reality as to speed very efficiently.
As one expects with such a quality build, pristine sums it up. A 9 inch 3:55 Rear, and Hotchkiss sway bars front and back, as well as 4 new shocks. Last a new gas tank and sending unit are present.
A careful and painstaking restoration by the consigner, finished 6 years ago, is now here for the taking, and for another's pleasure. A meticulous build with some serious horsepower, and upgrades to handle it. Careful hold your neck up straight and tighten up!
