For Sale: 1959 Chevrolet Impala in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Pivotal in design and breathtaking in appearance, the one year only style of the '59 Chevrolet Impala is instantly recognizable and coveted by automobile enthusiasts worldwide. And if you're looking to satisfy an unrelenting need to headline shows and make a big statement, here's the jaw-dropping drop-top of your dreams! This freshly finished Impala convertible does an excellent job of wrapping vintage style around modern technology.

In what amounted to a systematic, no-expense-spared rebuild, the car's solid body was completely stripped, thoroughly massaged and layered in a liquid-smooth coat of bright red 2-stage paint. With that paint buffed to brilliance, new glass was complemented with new, professionally polished trim and color-keyed quarter banners. With that profile dyed and detailed, a custom-stitched cloth folding top was artfully stretched over the cockpit.

Toss the car's long hood and you'll find a hot 6.2L all aluminum LS3 V8 that, looks ALMOST as good as it runs. That well-mannered motor twists a modern 6L80 6-speed automatic transmission, which is hooked to a tough 10 bolt rear axle and 3.55 gears. The boxed and smoothed chassis hangs tubular control arms at each corner and coil over shocks up front. Power steering provides tracking. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to 4-wheel disc brakes. And stylish Budnik polished aluminum wheels throw torque through Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

Inside is unmistakably 1959 style, but modern in fit and finish. Wide bench seats are masterfully upholstered in plush custom leather upholstery and accompanied by matching custom covered door and side panels. A fully restored dash hangs beautiful Classic Instruments gauges adjacent to Vintage Air a/c controls and a custom mounted stereo system. Power windows and a power folding top round out creature comforts.

With its top-notch craftsmanship and incredible mechanical prowess, this Chevy presents the rare opportunity to land a fresh showstopper without the fuss of coordinating a stressful, multi-year restoration. Make a statement. Call, click or visit for more information!
