For Sale: 1963 Chevrolet Impala in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1963 Chevrolet Impala Coupe for your consideration. This vehicle was the recipient of a frame off restoration in 2019 and remains in immaculate condition. It is powered by a healthy 383ci stroker V8 that was freshly built at the time of the restoration. Highlights of this motor include new pistons, new six inch rods, new crank, new water pump, new oil pan, new 555 roller cam and lifters, new aluminum heads, an Edelbroc aluminum 2x4 intake with Edelbrock 1406 carbs, and Edelbrock air cleaner and valve covers. Additionally spark is provided by a Billet aluminum one wire HEI distributor and exhaust is routed away from the motor through Hooker headers. The selling owner notes that the motor is believed to make 550+ horsepower, but we have no dyno sheet or verification of these proposed horsepower numbers. Power is routed to the rear wheels through a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter that is mounted into the factory console. At the time of restoration a new clutch was installed as was a blow proof bell housing and 3.73 posi-traction gear in the rear.

While the motor is surely a highlight of this beautifully restored Impala, the exterior is another sight to behold. The selling owner noted that all new sheet metal was used with the exception of the roof and no Bondo was used during the restoration. It features all new chrome with California style bumpers. Also noted was the process by which each piece was painted. One at a time each piece received a coat of white then red paint so that the color "pops" in the sun. This '63 Impala rides on 15-inch American Racing Turbo Thrust II 5-spoke wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A white letter tires. Needless to say, this is a beautiful vehicle with an aggressive stance and is sure to be a head turner wherever it goes.

The black leather interior was made with real leather with the selling owner noting that it took seven hides to completely upholster everything from the seats to the door panels. Also featured is a new factory tachometer, new wooden steering wheel, tinted glass, Vintage Air air conditioning system, and retro style AM/FM/Bluetooth radio.

Additional highlights are CCP disc brakes with CCP booster and reservoir. CCP tubular A arms, power steering box, and tie rods were also installed. Gas is stored in a Rock Valley stainless steel tank and Unity accessory lights were installed in a factor manner to the exterior.

In 1963 Chevrolet updated the styling of the Impala lineup once again. For the '63 model year Chevrolet introduced a "jet-smooth" body that used rectilinear body lines. Additionally, a machined alloy decklid was mounted to the rear of the car adding another touch of class to the exterior appearance. This is a highly desirable year of the Impala, and this fantastic example is ready for a new home. Please call or email with any questions or for additional information.
