Car description

This 1968 Chevrolet Impala is a real-deal Super Sport with a cool/coordinated look, large A/C interior, and original big block power. So as you look over this coupe, you'll see a lot of care it took to properly present an all-around terrific classic. The squared-off roofline of this Impala is a bit different, and Chevy fans know this is something very special. 1968 was the first year for the Impala Custom Coupe. This gave the Impala the same... roofline as the top-dog Caprice, so to have it featured in black vinyl adds some prestige to the sporty appearance. And this full-size coupe centrally has the look of performance. The Matador Red paint is a 1968-correct color, and it was upgraded later in life (2015) to give it a bold shine. The full-length black strip not only adds to the sporty appeal, but it has a touch of elegance as it coordinates with the roof. The '60s-style chic continues on the brightwork with the large grille, Rally wheel package, and the big chrome bumpers with the all-important rear one carrying the Impala's hallmark six taillight arrangement built into the design. This dual luxury and performance attitude continues on the well-presented interior. The black coordinates with the exterior accessory color, and it always looks great in a classic American. The bucket seats and the comfortable center console with iconic horseshoe shifter completes the true Super Sport feeling. A full-size car like this can comfortably carry up to five people with ease, so you get great features to keep everyone happy like an AM/FM radio and ice-cold air conditioning running modern R134a. But even when you're just cruising by yourself, this Impala is a great choice. After all, you're going to love grabbing the three-spoke sports steering wheel and gazing at the classic speedometer that's as long as the horizon. Plus, the pillarless profile that comes from rolling down all the windows on this premium hardtop is worth the price all on its own (and thanks to the A/C you can look cool while staying cool.) The ideal full-size classic coupe will have plenty of power to get it moving, and this one does not disappoint. The numbers-matching 396 cubic-inch big block fills the engine bay with V8 power. The black fender walls funnel your attention to the bright block, shining valve covers, and matching air topper. But more than just look nice, they also upgraded this original V8 for power. It has enhancements like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that can handle the power, especially after a rebuild in 2002. It also makes it a comfortable cruiser. The same goes for the power steering, power brakes, and newer urethane front bushings. The sale come with the owner's manual, reproduction window sticker, and maintenance records. This Impala SS is a sporty and sophisticated combination that makes for an irresistible deal. Call now!
