We could tell you about the full size classic luxury that this 1970 Chevrolet Impala offers, but you're already mesmerized by the paint and wheels. In fact, this is a very cool combination of the original V8 and interior, with some nice modern upgrades that create a very intoxicating and affordable package.
Let's start with the most obvious part of the car, its spectacular paintwork. It started out life as purely a Champaign Gold coupe. That has a great 1970s quality, but now the addition of matte black gives this a very modern and slightly sinister appearance that instantly attracts a crowd. The contrasting scheme is further highlighted by the factory gold given a bright clearcoat refresh. The separation of these two colors perfectly highlights the best styling elements on this large coupe. But more than just paint, this coupe gets its classic details right. It includes the extra wide chrome front end that's 1970s cool; the rear bumper integrates nicely into the bodywork because this is before government intervention; and the addition of the large 20-inch black torque thrust-style wheels coordinate nicely with this cool custom package.
The interior remains exceptionally stock, which is a good thing. After all, gold vinyl is the perfect complement to the exterior package. But more than just color, this is a fantastic interior for its level of preservation. The seats, door panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash are a pristine time warp of golden goodness. It's hard not enjoy the premium feeling of the that comes from the cool wood paneling that's throughout the interior, including on the steering wheel. And the extra wide speedometer is always a piece of great retro fun. Best of all, as a full-size Impala, you can share all of this with up to five family and friends thanks to plenty of space for everyone to get comfortable.
Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8, which is another testament of how nicely this car represents its era. In fact, more than just the factory motor, it appears to have the original intake, valve covers, exhaust manifold, and Rochester two-barrel carburetor. It starts right up, and keeps its luxury demeanor with a powerful but restrained exhaust note. The factory advertised 250 hp means the coupe moves with ease and the three-speed automatic transmission shifts like a luxury coupe should. This is Chevrolet's personal luxury statement, so you get great driving features such as power steering and front disc brakes.
