1966 Chevrolet Impala in LaVergne Tennessee

 Vehicle Description
Looking for some Chevy V8 power with a slightly unusual twist? How about this sleek 1966 Chevrolet Impala hardtop, which offers a 283 cubic inch V8, an unusual color combination, and an awesome stance? Still one of the best-looking designs of the mid-60s, the big Imp delivers a grown-up muscle car experience thats just a little different from all the Camaros and Chevelles out / br / The color is pretty close to the original code T Sandalwood Tan, which looks fantastic on the big Impala coupe. Thanks to a respray a few years ago, it looks very good with an understated elegance that belies the performance car living within. Good gaps and smooth quarter panels (which are among the largest ever created) make it look like it should cost thousands more than it does, and you could have a professional body shop hit it with a color sand and buff to really make it pop. Its not perfect, but it looks so good going down the road nobody will care. Coming from the warm, dry south certainly helps and this car wears all its original sheetmetal, which is always reassuring. Original emblems look pretty good against the paint and both the bumpers appear to be original as well. 1966 saw the Caprice replace the Impala as Chevys top-of-the-line, but the Impala never lost the triple-taillights that were a styling feature from the very beginning, so its easy to spot a mile / br / The attractive bench seat interior is stylish and comfortable, and it appears that most of it is original equipment. The seat covers show some wear and use, including some very small tears, but our advice is to leave it alone and enjoy the car. Theres just enough brightwork inside to remind you that this is a high-end Chevy not a rental-grade beater, and the ornate steering wheel combines popular features from previous years to give it a unique look. The linear instrument panel covers only the basics, with a wide speedo and a fuel gauge on the end, with the auxiliary controls in a bright band of trim just underneath. The factory AM radio is gone, replaced by a digital AM/FM unit, suggesting that the builder had a dedication to getting it right and there are rubber mats on the floor that look like they were born there. And given all that sheetmetal, it shouldnt be a surprise that the trunk is massive, and even with a full-sized spare tire, theres room for, well, just about / br / The engine is a 283 cubic inch Turbo Fire V8, which was a few steps up from the base six and delivers the kind of reliable V8 torque that youd expect. Recently and correctly detailed, it runs smoothly enough to pass muster in this luxury liner and looks ready for show. Chevy Orange paint, a factory air cleaner, and none of the usual modifications are more proof that the last owner cared about getting this one right. Correct GM decals, finishes, and a big radiator are the little things that make an engine compartment look authentic, and you could take it up a notch with just a little bit of elbow grease. The 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission is a familiar find in a car like this, and is backed by a 10-bolt rear end with highway-friendly gears inside. A dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers gives it a polite burble thats exactly right, and the suspension neatly balances comfort and an awesome stance. It sits on ultra-cool Boyd Coddington wheels with 245/40/18 performance / br / A neat combination of originality and light modifications with no hidden secrets this Impala represents a lot of style for not a lot of cash.
