Vehicle Description

1977 Chevrolet Impala Sedan

Who among us hard core car guys and gals cannot for the life of us stop lifting off the accelerator when we see a Chevrolet Impala alongside the road sitting there not moving? It's inbred that this is the car nearly every police force utilized for years and years. One suspects radar or timing strips or any number of nefarious ways to nab a speeder. For this writer who enjoys a quick commute even to the grocery store, I need to be diligent at every turn so as not to be nabbed by the "fuzz" watching ever so diligently from the interior of their Police Impala, GM's fleet car star.

For consignment, a "survivor" if you will in 1977 Chevrolet Impala getup. This is a purported 2 owner car and was clearly kept since new in the garage and enjoyed sparingly by the little old lady prior owner all the time without the intention to be used as a collector car. Nicely convenience optioned, all clean interior and rust free exterior, this first year box design from '77 gracing the halls of the Classic Auto Mall, and when I speed by on the golf cart, I'm still tempted to step on the brake to avoid that ticket. Which I will get not for speeding, but the golf carts have no way to "click it!"

With large straight steel side slab panels, 4 big doors and a long trunk and hood, gaps are being well minded, and moldings are also well aligned. All bathed in a respray of the original metallic brown hue. A few inclusions and stone chips are noted in the finish, but otherwise is looking fine and inline. Square and rectangle design abounds on the rectangular headlights, turn signals under said lamps, the clean front bumper, and side marker lighting. A wide stainless rocker molding runs the length of this car and shows no rust where it meets the paint. A chrome side view mirror is attached to the driver's door and the long trunk lid as well as the hood show nicely. On the back, more segmented rectangular designs within straight panels for the taillights and another pristine bumper below. Even the badge font is squared off. A nicely textured tan vinyl top is wrapping the roof and shows Impala badging in your grandmother's script. Basic black steel wheels with dog dish caps are on the fours and are wrapped in like new blackwall rubber completing the undercover cop look.

A swing of the doors and we see padded tan vinyl covering the doors withpadded and molded armrests, broken up by the chrome window cranks, actuators and on the driver's door a mirror joystick. A hint of some wood applique finishes off these high end trimmed swingers. Inside more tan vinyl in big bench with tuck and rolling, some piping, and plenty of width proves the perfect place for my posterior. In back is an equally comfortable rear bench, with the same padding and design as the front, all clean and comfy. Clean golden brown carpet floods the floors and in front floating above is the original dash with a touch of wood applique showing heat and A/C slides, power steering, the standard instrument cluster, and the factory installed AM/FM radio. The tan felted broadcloth headliner above is nice and tight.

Within the clean and wonderfully detailed corrosion free engine bay, is perched a 305ci V8 that is correct and original to the car. This mill has a 2-barrel carburetor and a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission on the back. The rear axle is of the 10 bolt variety and all is looking good under the hood.

Nice patina on all rust free surfaces, solid as a rock frame, floor pans and even wheel wells are looking good with light patina and road dirt. Front power disc brakes are seen as well as power drum brakes for the back. Helping you chase down an errant criminal is independent coil sprung front suspension and a 4 link with coil spring arrangement in the rear with new shocks all the way around. A new fuel tank is noted as well as a new muffler for the single exhaust system. Amazingly clean and green environment under here!

Normally I would not pay attention to driving one of these, but this one called for me, due to its amazing condition. I answered and slipped in, fired it up and was duly impressed. Good performance, decent handling, and a smooth ride. Bias free braking, and it all worked together for this well kept "collector" grade automobile.

If you are feeling the want for a collector car but don't want to cash in your IRA then this might be just the car for you. It would not be most people's first choice, but in the end not many of these survive in this condition, as most were fleet cars used until they dropped. Not this car, it has been babied and well preserved. Come in and see it in person and you too will be impressed, and if you sit it along the side of the road, I'll be sure to "lift" as I sweep by!
