Take some time to look this car over, because this in an interesting dream machine. You\'re looking at some of the best combined elements of a single year to deliver a 1962 Chevrolet Impala with a bubble top hardtop and a big dual-quad 409 V8 with four-on-the-floor.
So if you\'re a Chevy person, you already know how interesting this is. The bubble top hardtop design for the sports coupe was a feature only for the Bel Air this year. The upper-level Impala had the more formal hardtop design. But now that the bubble tops are a true legend, this one has some fun by taking the extra-sleek Bel Air profile and upgraded it to Impala trim - including the hallmark six taillight arrangement. The result is a unique car that answers the what if... question. And while this one is unique in its history, it\'s also terrifically vintage in its presentation. Honduras Maroon is a great 1962 color. This is part of a professional respray, and so there\'s a big gloss and shine to nicely showcase this distinct machine. And the color-matched wheels with base hub caps for a true sleeper touch. Plus, you get some great brightwork on the form-hugging chrome bumpers, SS badging, rocker trim, and full-length side trim with sporty machine-turned insert.
Open the door to a time capsule interior. You can tell there was a solid investment here, because not only does everything feel fresh and nice, but also the details look good. You see it in places like how the button-top seats match the door panels. While there will always be a few people who want to go for a ride in powerful coupe like this, you\'re always going to be the priority in this one. That\'s why you have classic driver-oriented features, like the bucket seats, floor shifter, and provisions for the correct-style tach. Even the upgrades are cleanly integrated, like the auxiliary readouts and the Chevy sports steering wheel from the muscle car era.
But of course, the feature you\'ll love the most is under the hood. Those fender callouts weren\'t lying about the big block 409 cubic-inch V8 filling the engine bay. It has a period-correct appearance with the valve covers w/callouts, bold block, and even nice hoses. And as you dig deeper, you\'ll fall in love/lust with the dual set of four-barrel carburetors on the high-rise intake. There are even headers that add even more muscle while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Not only do you have street-eating power, but any time you really want to bring the thunder, there are a set of exhaust cutouts to let everyone really fear the legend of the dual-quad 409. The four-speed manual transmission puts you in complete control of it all. There\'s even a 12-bolt 4.11 Positraction rear end for powerful and confident takeoffs. Add in upgrades like modern tires and front disc brakes, and this is a true power coupe.
It\'s hard not to get excited about a presentation that delivers something that is vintage, custom, and absolutely powerful. So if you love being unique with your big power classic, call today!
