For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Impala in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

A real-deal 1966 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport convertible with proper big block power is a wonderful thing. But when it has been restored to look this sharp, then you know you're looking at something special.

The paint on this car really sets it apart. It's modern and premium PPG blue with enough metallic to make sure this convertible radiates on every sunny day. Beautiful paint needs a terrific canvas, and the body lines on this drop-top show they took extra care before the first drop of blue went down. And because this was a full rotisserie restoration, you're going to find the whole car looking quite clean and complete. So this really has the crisp lines that prove this Super Sport Impala is a premium Chevy. But more than just color and metal, even the details are correct - the folding roof fits snugly; the trim is bright and complete; and the doors hang with the crispness not seen in many convertibles of this era. The wide chrome grille up front is like an extension of the mirror-like bumper. And in the rear, the bumper has a terrific fit as it integrates into the sheet metal. So the overall effect of this one is a classic that looks smart with its top up or down.

The deep blue paint looks like ocean water, and the white roof looks like a tropical wave on top. But as attractive as this is, it gets even better when you power the roof down. That's because there is a terrific-looking interior that continues the sea of blue. As a detailed restoration, you'll love to watch people point out the little things that make a difference. You see it in the white convertible boot, working courtesy lights, and the way the trim in the door panels coordinates with the trim in the seats. There's plenty of room for family and friends in a full-size convertible like this. And you even can keep them happy with upgrades like an AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth and provisions for Vintage Air R134a air conditioning (it may just need a recharge to blow cold again.). But because this is a true Super Sport the driver gets the best treats. Front bucket seats, a center console, and a factory wheel on a tilt column mean you'll always be riding in individual comfort.

Open the hood to reveal a year-correct 396 cubic-inch big block nestled in a terrific engine bay. With the smooth gloss black inner walls, a bold block, shining valve covers, and matching air topper, this presentation is award-worthy all on its own. And while it looks like there were nice investments in making this stock, you can just dig a little deeper to discover some worthwhile upgrades. It's an even stronger runner thanks to an Edelbrock 750 four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer intake, and an HEI distributor. You even have better upgrades for daily use, like a large aluminum radiator and a 100-amp alternator. Power steering, power brakes front discs, a Powerglide automatic transmission, and modern tires on Torq Thrust wheels make for a great driving package. And the clean undercarriage shows off the newer components that give this one a confident feeling on the road.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records. This Impala SS offers everything you want in a vintage full-size drop-top, and it has all the right upgrades to give you modern comfort, too. Exceptionally restored classics like this don't come along very often. Call today!!!
