LaFontaine Classics is thrilled to offer this beautiful 1966 Impala
SS 427/425hp 4 speed for sale.
These full sized hot-rods are getting difficult to find, and to
find one of this quality is extremely unusual. This example is a
rare, numbers matching ""L72"" optioned SS that has gone through an
extensive nut and bolt, frame-off restoration with no expense
Under the hood you will find the flagship engine for 1966 - the
powerful ""L72"" 427 cubic inch big block Chevy pumping out 425
factory rated horsepower. The engine was completely rebuilt to OEM
specifications using the correct components, from the 4-bolt main
iron block, all the way up to the correct Holley 4-barrel
carburetor. Sending all of that power rearward is a Muncie M21
close ratio 4 speed transmission that was also completely gone
through and rebuilt to factory specs to handle all of that power.
Rounding out the drivetrain is the strongest rear end offered by
Chevrolet in 1966 - the GM 12 bolt. Equipped with 8 7/8"" diameter
ring gear, 30 spline axles, and a locking differential, this was
the best the factory had to offer and it held up well in all
The car was completely disassembled, the body removed from the
frame and a full frame off restoration was performed during prior
ownership. The frame was media blasted and painted the factory
correct semi-gloss black. The body was put on a rotisserie and
brought back to like new condition, then sprayed in Marina Blue, or
paint code ""FF"" as appears on the firewall trim tag.
Because the Impala was in such good condition to start with, many
of the body moldings, trim pieces and light lenses were reused. If
any components had any signs of wear or fading, brand new parts
were sourced and installed. All weather-stripping has been replaced
along with the door seals as needed. All emblems on the exterior
are in great condition with the ""427"" badges showing off what's
under the hood.
Sitting in the driver's seat fills you with confidence knowing
there are only a few rivals capable of conquering this L72
equipped, full size muscle machine. The interior provides tons of
room, and is very comfortable, making longs trips very enjoyable.
Every seat has been restored and covered with new interior color
code ""844"" Bright Blue seat covers. The remainder of the interior
was fully restored to exact factory specifications and looks like
it came off the showroom floor.
If you are in the market for a muscle car and want something a
little different, this 1966 Impala SS 427 might be for you. This is
the car that will draw a crowd wherever it goes. It's a rare piece
of muscle car history - and it's available now. Call us today for
more information at 248-714-2110!
