Car description

It's not the award-worthy two-one paint. It's not the luxury leather interior with every comfort you could want from A/C to a 360 degree view camera. It's not the performance-built small block or the four-wheel disc brakes. It's all of those features combined and so many more custom details that make this 1960 Chevrolet Impala one of the most impressive custom cars you'll ever lay eyes on.From headlight to tailfin, you can instantly tell that someone spent time, effort, and a ton of money going over every detail of this coupe. It starts with the body. Something looks a bit different than the other '60 Impalas out there, right? Take a closer look. Separate items like the bumpers have been seamlessly merged into the body design for a very modern and unique appearance. Keeping with the custom/updated look is the paint. The two-tone borrows GM's legendary Marina Blue. And the lower shale color seems to coordinate with it quite nicely thanks to a blue pearl laid within the paint (see, we told you this was a thoughtful build.) The result is an ultra-smooth finish on one of the smoothest customs around. In fact, this one has so much luster, it will be a while before you realize many of the traditionally chromed elements (bumpers, headlight bezels, fender trim, etc.) have been panted with the body for a more uniform and modern appearance. But just because this car is making its own style declaration, doesn't mean it's missing out on good 'ol American brightwork. You see it in places like the mirror-like window trim and the 15-inch torque thrust-style wheels with iconic whitewalls. And it wouldn't be a '60 Impala without bright dual aerials sprouting from the rear fenders. But your favorite piece might just be the subtle accent painted into the long rear section. The custom burnt orange is so artful, it looks like someone was brazing copper from the door panel to the tip of the tailfin.The moment you open the door, you can tell there was plenty left in the budget for the interior. In fact, take a moment to understand the level of planning that had to go into a build like this. The blue on the seats is a dead ringer for the exterior color, and the pinstripe that separates the exterior two-tone is now the color of interior piping. The color coordination that is utilized for the seats, door panels, dash, headliner, trunk, and custom center console is the kind of uniform build that will win awards all on its own. But don't just look at this Impala; experience it, too. You sit down in supportive bucket seats that are power adjustable to your perfect comfort position. You'll grab the artful factory steering wheel, and beyond that is one of the nicest-looking factory gauge setups ever to come from Chevy. And while these are great original elements retained in this classic, nearly everything else has been updated for comfort and accuracy. You now have a full set of Dolphin readouts and a Lokar shifter. And no matter if it's just you out for a cruise or the whole family is in this full-size Impala, everyone stays comfortable. That's because you have great features like modern R134a air conditioning. Plus, we know you've spotted the dual screens in the center console. They allow you the most modern features like a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with interfaces for satellite navigation, Bluetooth, and cameras with front, left and right side, and rear views.And don't forget to look under the hood. Within the black fender walls is the terrific shine of that V8 dressed up with polished components nearly everywhere possible. And of course, we love how the air grabber perfectly matches the exterior paint scheme. But more than just style, this 350 cubic-inch GM crate motor has performance substance, too. This powerful V8 has been upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, March pulley system, and ceramic coated headers that feed the rumbling side pipes. The bite on this custom matches its bark thanks to features like the upgraded independent front suspension, stout TH350 three-speed automatic, and four-wheel disc brakes. But a fully built classic like this is more thoughtful than just a pure power machine. That's why you have features like power steering and a Griffin four-core aluminum radiator, because this Impala is meant to be great no matter if your showing off or just enjoying the drive.With so much to go over, there's not enough space to list on this bumper-to-bumper custom build. But we've got all the info, including magazine articles. So hurry and give us a call before the best Impala you'll ever see goes into new hands!
