For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Impala in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS is the kind of hardtop that turns up the power car fun in all the best places. It takes the iconic 409 displacement and then strokes the engine and adds dual quads on top. You get better control over the monster motor thanks to a five-speed upgrade. And there's even an upgraded suspension including four-wheel disc brakes. So are you ready for an awesome road-ready icon?



The '62 Impala is iconic. It has the hallmark six tail light arrangement, wraparound chrome bumpers, and a wide grille allow this one to own the road. But the brightwork we think you'll enjoy the most is the full-length spear that runs the full profile. It has a terrific machine-turned insert that makes this feel like a true Super Sport - and so they also repeated it on the rear panel. This one is all about being a driver at its heart, and so it's presented in a road-ready style that makes it easy to enjoy without getting nervous. So we like how the finish has a bit of blacktop battle style. However, the trim tag tells us this is a factory Tuxedo Black car, and so it would be historically correct if you ever wanted to respray it for a piano-like luster. And no matter how you choose to motor, the upgraded 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels are attractive for their great vintage attitude while also giving this the unmistakable stance of an upgraded machine.



The blackout continues inside. The carpeting, upholstery, door panels, and dash pad have an overall clean presentation that makes this a comfortable driver. There are nice factory-style details like the working dome light and the button-top style on the seats and door panels. Plus, nothing beats the look of rolling down all the windows to show off the hardtop profile. And as a true Super Sport, you have front bucket seats and a center console. That show's it's a driver's car, and that feeling is furthered with upgrades like the Hurst shifter, added tach, auxiliary readouts, and an upgraded sports steering wheel on a tilt column.



Under the hood is the clean look of a mean motor. The 409 cubic-inch big block is a legend for these cars, and we're even told it has been stroked to 482ci total. It has been upgraded further with an Edelbrock suite that includes Edelbrock aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, and dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors on top. The long tube headers add even more power while giving a powerful growl to the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. More than just pure power, it also has the right supporting components, including a full MSD ignition system. It's a strong and thoughtfully-built package, and you have full control over it all thanks to the Tremec five-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath, you'll spot more worthwhile upgrades, including Hotchkis sway bars and boxed rear arms. Add in power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy ZR-rated tires, and this is the powerful Impala that's also a solid cruiser.



Complete with build receipts, here's an iconic hardtop that growls with power. So you know it's the one you're going to love. Call today!!!
