With its correct color combo, correct bucket seat Super Sport interior, correct-appearing small block in the engine bay, this 1966 Chevrolet Impala is full-size vintage coupe that offers a lot of what's temptingly correct in a very affordable package.
Chevrolet's best-selling full-size Impala really looks sleek and striking in '66, and this hardtop coupe represents all of that perfectly. The factory-correct Lemonwood Yellow has been expertly resprayed to have an exceptionally bold presence in the daylight. And of course, it also takes super-straight sheetmetal for this kind of presentation. All the brightwork is correct from the wraparound bumpers, to the full-width grille, to the sweeping trim line that starts at the front fender and wraps around the rear. You're looking at a real-deal code-68 Super Sport, so even the fender badging is correct. In fact, the only piece that doesn't appear factory-like is the set of large Ridler wheels. But with their bold presentation on this bright classic, who can blame them for the cool addition?
Not only does the exterior paint make for a fantastic contrast to the deep, black interior, but as a true Super Sport, you get all the right elements to attract a crowd. It includes the stylized bucket seats that have a low-back presentation to give this pillarless hardtop a terrific uncluttered profile when all the windows are down. In-between is a bright center console and sporty floor shift. With the door panels, carpeting, and headliner so nicely presented, too, this coupe is a fine place to spend some time. And that's a good thing considering the full-size Impala SS has plenty of room to carry five total in comfort. This one feels like proper 1960s motoring with the factory Impala steering wheel, heat/defrost sliders, and large horizontal speedometer. The factory AM radio is still even sitting in the dash.
Lift the hood to see the 283 cubic-inch V8 radiating from the engine bay. This 1966-coded block has the honest presentation we all love to see today with Chevy's correct orange on the block, intake, and Chevrolet stamped valve covers. It shows all the right signs of good maintenance, fires up nicely, and adds a nice rumble to the newer dual exhaust. A cool hardtop coupe like this was built for cruising, so you'll enjoy features like the Powerglide automatic transmission, power steering, and upgraded front disc brakes.
