This 1960 Chevy Impala coupe checks all the right boxes for a great driving classic. Firstand#44; it neatly balances the outrageous fins of the 1950s with a cleanerand#44; more streamlined look. Secondand#44; it offers a cool color combination thats traditional but has the shine to stand out at shows. Plusand#44; theres a comfortable A/C interior. And best of alland#44; theres modern fuel-injected power under the hood.<br /> <br><br> Ermine white is a great color for GM fans. But you can see this has the kind of luster to make the pristine hue really glow in the sunshine. Thats thanks to the modern clearcoat that was applied when this coupe was professionally repainted about three years ago. Obviously the jet age was in full swing in 1960and#44; and few cars embodied the look more than the Impala. The red insert on the quarter panels is a fantastic way to highlight the aircraft-inspired trim as well as hints at what youll find inside. The fins were toned down a bitand#44; and many enthusiasts regard the 1960-only front end to be the most attractive of the period. Plusand#44; the bubble top design of this hardtop with its skinny C-pillar and wraparound rear window is iconic. Chrome is critical on this carand#44; and its all in fine condition from the nicely detailed grilleand#44; to the dual aerialsand#44; to the tailfins outlined in polished stainless. The headlights even have the hot rod style mirror eyelids installed. And if its shine you loveand#44; the polished 15-inch wheels with racing flag center caps offer some great distinction without losing the vintage feel.<br /> <br><br> Just as predicted by the exterior trimand#44; the interior is a bold factory-style red with some tasteful upgrades. The inside of this one actually won best interior at a local cruise in lately...its that nice. Correct houndstooth fabric and leather-grain vinyl is the way Chevy showed off its premium coupe in 1960. The pattern is repeated on the door panels for a great matching appearance. Add in the red/black carpetsand#44; red dashand#44; stylized red steering wheeland#44; and this Impala has a very original and uniform feeling that comes with the best classics. But as you gaze over the whole dashand#44; a few nice upgrades come into focus. Firstand#44; the original-looking radio is actually a more modern AM/FM stereo. And everyone will enjoy the addition of air conditioning. So this big six-person Chevy has all the right features to keep all your passengers comfortable and entertained.<br /> <br><br> When you turn the keyand#44; you might wonder why this 55+ year-old fires up so easily. Thats because the vintage coupe has had a transplant of a younger fuel-injected heart. The 350 cubic-inch TPI Chevy V8 looks fantastic in the engine bay with the kind of tidy setup that almost makes you think it was born this wayand#44; but it offers the kind or reliable performance you couldnt dream of in the 60s. A modern motor deserves a modern Flowmaster dual exhaust systemand#44; and this upgrade allows your vintage Chevy to have a real nice performance rumble. On the road the Impala feels great thanks to features like 700R4 four-speed automatic w/overdriveand#44; power steeringand#44; front disc brakesand#44; and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A tires.<br /> <br><br> Starting to get the full picture on this one? Superior fuel-injected V8 powerand#44; overdrive transmissionand#44; and an A/C interior all mean that this cool-looking classic is also an easy driving coupe. So take it to the local cruise-in or road trip it on the Power Tourand#44; because this Impala can comfortably handle anything. But you wont be taking it anywhere unless youre the first to grab the deal. Call now!!
