1960 Chevrolet Impala Description

The 1960 Chevrolet Impala is one of the most interesting cars in this long-standing nameplate. Some of the most iconic styling elements were combined for this year only. So to find the unique year restored with a great color combo and a few subtle upgrades, it really makes for one special coupe you'll happily cruise everywhere. Long, lean, and luxurious, Chevy's top-of-the-line looked great in '60. This was the beginning of the V8 cruiser era, and this coupe had all the right speedy appearance for it. The bubble top design of this hardtop is iconic – with its skinny c-pillar and wraparound rear window. The year-correct Roman Red paint makes an instant impression thanks to a quality respray within the last few years. So it will look great under the lights at your local cruise night. The front end was toned down from the outrageous '59s, which makes the wraparound chrome bumpers look sleeker. The tailfin is so massive and integral that it starts at the door and doesn't end until the trunk lock (some stylists said the idea was these tailfins were getting so large they really had to lay them on their side!) Running the same length as the fin is the cool jet inspired white and chrome trim that's a hallmark of these premium speedy Chevys. And that streak of white is also a great match for the roof and wide whitewalls for a terrifically coordinated total package. If you loved the red and white look of the exterior, just wait until you see the interior. People will be instantly impressed the moment they peek inside. The two colors are masterfully interwoven on this stylish setup. You even have it as part of the houndstooth-style inserts in the seats and door panels! There has been a careful eye to keep this looking classic and cool – that's why the upgraded AM/FM radio w/aux input has a retro-style appearance. While family and friends will love riding in this roomy pillarless hardtop, the best treats are reserved just for you. After all the Impala got a stylish dual-spoke steering wheel, and it gives you a clear view of the five individual gauge pods that look particularly sporty. Under the hood is a 283 cubic-inch V8. This looks exceptionally correct – from the Chevy orange on the block to the generator – so it should be no surprise this is believed to be the original power plant. It has a four-barrel carburetor to give you an extra hit of power, which is nice on a cruiser like this. So with the power steering and a cushy ride, you'll enjoy taking this bright red Impala out on the road. Complete with the reproduction window sticker and owner's manual, this is a true red-blooded American classic restored to show it off correctly. So don't let it slip away, call today!
