RARE NUMBERS MATCHING CAR WITH FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING
With increased demand for SS-badged Chevrolet Impalas comes increased cloning from lesser Impala models, so finding an original numbers matching SS, in convertible form, especially in these winter months, can prove to be a challenge.
With new styling touches designed by Ed Cole and a stronger frame to handle the expanding line of big block engines, the 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS was widely considered the best yet. This particular professionally restored original 396/325hp convertible certainly supports that notion. Finished in a beautifully rare combination of original Aztec Bronze, two-tone Light Fawn and Medium Gold Metallic colored bucket seat interior, and all new white top, this is a very nicely appointed example with many desirable attributes.
The interior is a typically straightforward SS affair with power top, original AM radio, power windows, and the added benefit of the rare factory air conditioning. Under the hood, the solid and reliable 396/325 HP engine nestles in a nicely refinished engine compartment. All chrome and trim are in excellent condition, including the 17" chrome American Racing Torque Thrust wheels. The wheels spin 255/45R17 in the front and 255/45R17 in the rear with Firestone Firehawk rubber all around. This handsome Impala SS also comes with the original spare and jack set as well as an extra set of factory original wheels.
This fully sorted Chevy is a wonderful classic to drive, enjoy and haul three or four of your coolest friends in. It’s really no surprise that these cars are amazingly popular with almost everyone who sees them, because they have such a great combination of style, presence and performance. So, what are you waiting for? Grab the phone, park this ’66 drop-top in your garage and get ready for years of care-free cruising! If you have any questions please call (847) 487-2272.
