Car description

Its model is one of the most coveted in the entire realm of car culture and you're not likely to find a more sterling representative than this one. This 1963 Chevrolet Impala SS 409 Convertible is fully loaded and unrelentingly authentic both inside and out. You'll still find its original storied powerplant beneath its hood, propelling this classic of classics in rock solid fashion while pairing with curb appeal that's off the charts. This Impala is... sure to draw plenty of attention while it's still well off in the distance and, as it draws closer, onlookers will be treated to quite a display. The magnetic red paint draped over the exterior is in great shape, with no visible blemishes and an excellent shine - a simple buff and wax session will take it to absolute show quality. Its array of chrome is in top notch form - check out that ornate front grille with its pair of dual headlights and the sturdy chrome bumper below it. From front to back, the badging that proclaims upper crust Super Sport status is also razor sharp. The temptation to daydream about hitting the road with only the blue sky above you is undeniable, but when the skies darken, there's a white vinyl convertible top on board to rise into position for protection - it seals nicely and features a clear plastic rear window. Inside the doors lies a vintage driving environment that's as clean as they come. Still in its original configuration, it's a showstopper, with broad buckets and a rear bench seat that are in top-notch form, ultra-clean carpeting lining the floor and door panels and a center console that are in stellar condition. That center console bears a spotless chrome shifter that sits within easy reach, calling to you to grab a hold and get out on the road. The level of functionality on board here is just as impressive - the factory gauges in the instrument cluster are crystal clear and work as intended, as does the column mounted tachometer. The air conditioning - a rare feature in a droptop when this '63 rolled out - is blowing strong and cold to keep you and your passengers comfortable. Raise the deck lid and you'll see a trunk area that's in just the ultra-clean shape you'd expect, given the appearance of the rest of the car, with a full size spare and fender skirts stowed inside. This vintage Chevy is powered by its original 409 cubic inch V8 - a powerplant memorialized in song and for good reason. Its appeal lies not just in sheer displacement - although that's alluring in itself - but what that displacement can do, which in this case is to generate an impressive 400 horses, or nearly one per cubic inch, which is no small feat for an engine from this era. It sits properly badged in an exceptionally well-organized compartment - the attention to detail inside is truly impressive and even the washer fluid bottle wears proper tags. The big block carries a 4-barrel carb underneath its chrome air cleaner, and pairs with a 3-speed automatic transmission that's also almost certainly original and offers very crisp shifting via an upgraded clutch. In an era where rear leaf springs were the norm, this Impala left the factory equipped with coils both fore and aft for a quieter ride and no binding around corners, and smooth power steering makes it easy to maneuver. Power brakes bring its set of 14" chrome capped and Super Sport branded wheels to easy stops. In stellar condition in all respects, this 1963 Chevrolet Impala SS 409 Convertible is an outstanding specimen of one of America's all-time most beloved automotive models. Call today!
