Here\'s an iconic 1963 Chevrolet Impala hardtop upgraded to the ultimate dream machine. Oh yes, this has the big 409ci V8 and the control of four-on-the-floor. And there are even the right updates to make sure you can truly enjoy it all.
An Impala upgraded to a 409 is such a legend that you instantly hear Beach Boys lyrics the moment someone tells you about the big V8 under the hood. But we love these coupes for so much more. They represented fast with class as the \'63 had a full-size look and a formal hardtop roofline. The Ember Red paint is the factory-correct color, and it was updated later in life to make sure it still has an impressive shine today. Wraparound chrome bumpers, a full-width grille, and quad headlights with individual bezels look distinct and bright on this well-presented coupe. The upgraded Super Sport trim means the hallmark triple taillight package was now placed within a machine-turned panel that loves to glow in the daylight. They borrowed that same style for the full-length trim strip. Add in all the correct 409 badging and Rally wheels with spinners, and this has the ideal look of a power cruiser.
The black interior has a clean and attractive style. It even has nice details, like the button-top presentation on the smooth seats and a matching pattern on the doors. This is a full-size coupe, and so there are plenty of family and friends who will want to come along on an ice cream run. But the real focus is on the driver. You get the classic gauges with the desirable tach prominently in the center, a center console with a Hurst floor shifter, and a well-placed auxiliary gauge trio.
An era-correct 409 cubic-inch V8 is something quite special. So wherever you go, you\'re going to feel like showing off the legendary motor. That\'s why they made sure the engine bay looks good with smooth inner fenders, a bold block, and plenty of polish on the valve covers and air grabber. It inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a nice tune from the dual exhaust. And the four-speed manual transmission puts you in control of the full package. This is a true classic cruiser, and so it wants the driving experience to be quite vintage. But well-placed upgrades like a newer aluminum radiator and modern Toyo tires. Give you a better cruiser feel.
Complete with the owner\'s manual, this is an attractive cruiser package that\'s built around one of the most desirable V8s ever. This 409 tribute is the kind of Impala we all want, and the first one here gets it. So don\'t delay, call today!
