1960 Chevrolet Impala in LaVergne Tennessee

 Vehicle Description
The super-clean lines of this 1960 Chevrolet Impala convertible were ground-breaking when they were new and remain extremely popular with collectors and customizers today. The 50s were well and truly over, and the smooth styling of this Impala would lead the way into a new decade. Convertibles are hard to find these days, especially restored to a high level like this one, making this 348 powered droptop a very special classic. br / br / Finished in gorgeous Ermine White with a black quarter panel insert, this is one fabulous looking droptop. This sucker looks about a mile long, but thanks to a lot of effort, the detailing is what catches your eye and the car has a very high-quality feel to it when you slam the door. There were still some vestigial tail fins in 1960, and many enthusiasts prefer the flattened look of the 60. Three lights out back were still an Impala trademark, and chrome was definitely still in fashion, although it was a bit more restrained in 1960. Fortunately, all the bright work on this lovely Imp is either re-chromed or fully polished, including bumpers that are super bright, and youll delight in details like the jet-shaped side trim and delicate stainless band that encircles the tail fins. The glass is truly radical, and given how hard these curved pieces are to find, youll be thrilled to note that the front windscreen is in great shape. Youll also note the stylized V and crossed flag emblems on the deck lid, which signify the 348 cubic inch V8 under the hood. The black power top goes up and down with a flick of a switch, and its in excellent shape with no rips or tears. br / br / Theres a party inside with the two-tone red and white upholstery. Finished with correct materials and patterns, the dazzling interior of this Impala is every bit as stylish and detailed as the body. With a split bench, access to the spacious back seat is easy, and the door panels feature the coolest armrest ever designed, emphasizing Chevys fascination with the jet age. The dash features a bright red hood and five individual gauge pods to relay information, while secondary controls are housed in a bright metal strip running along the bottom edge. The steering wheel may look familiar to Chevy fans, and its nicely restored with a brightly finished horn ring and button that show some light pitting but are otherwise in good order. The original AM radio is still in the dash but its been updated with an AM/FM/CD player hidden in the glove compartment, and seat belts were added for safety. R134a A/C is a wonderful addition, with vents and controls neatly mounted underneath the dash. The trunk is truly massive, as youd imagine, and includes yards of plush / br / Chevrolet offered an astounding FIVE versions of the 348 in the Impala, with the one in this car topped by Tri-Power carburetors and rated at 250 horsepower. They didnt take any shortcuts during the restoration, so its vintage 1960 under the hood with a few nice upgrades, including the power brakes, power steering, and chromed alternator. Three open element air cleaners top the array of carbs and bright Chevy Orange paint on the engine pops out from in between the chrome 348 valve covers. Its backed by a 700R4 automatic transmission with overdrive so its built for long-distance cruising, and it spins the original rear end. A custom Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds right and snakes through the X-frame chassis and burbles away at cruising speed. With handsome 14-inch wide whitewall tires on red wheels with factory hub caps, youll never get tired of wheeling this one around / br / The 1960 Impala convertible outsold the radical 1959 models, and its easy to see why.
