This is a slick sleeper custom coupe. After all, if you don\'t pick up on the subtle performance cues of 1964 Chevrolet Impala Restomod, then you might just see a cool hardtop. But beneath the skin lies the performance fuel-injected V8 heart and the right upgrades to support it.
Impala coupes are highly collectable because the crisp body lines and the broad six taillight arrangement are both icons of the 60s. And since these were the top trim of the era, it has all the best brightwork. This includes the wraparound chrome bumpers, wide grille, and full-length C-channel side trim. But the best piece of flair goes around the roof. It draws attention to the awesome pillarless hardtop that\'s another icon of the era. Plus, a terrific respray of the original Ember Red really makes this a standout coupe. So you know you\'re already going to love this one before you see the subtle upgrades, like the LS badging and the modern alloys disguised as classic Rally wheels – these hint at the beast within.
Inside, the vintage sleeper feeling continues. The seats have a terrific factory look with the classic pattern inserts. You even have the premium button-top presentation on the seats that continue onto the doors. There\'s plenty of room for family and friends in this large coupe, but you\'ll always have the best seat in the house. You get the classic thin and grippy factory steering wheel, and the dash has a vintage look, right down to the AM radio that\'s still on display. But then you put the key in and see the upgraded full gauge package glowing red. It\'s a nice indication of more upgrades that come when you twist the key.
The engine bay looks terrific with the smooth black inner fenders and firewall. It funnels your attention to the unmistakable bold red upgrade in the middle. This is a 5.3-liter fuel-injected LS V8. This modern motor breathes in deeply with a FiTech EFI system, intake, and throttle body. Plus, it exhales from shorty headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the side-exit dual exhaust. The engine upgrade also comes with the right supporting components, like serpentine belts and a large aluminum radiator. This is the kind of total package that\'s great for power driving as well as comfortable cruising. That\'s why you also have a 460LE four-speed automatic transmission that\'s stout enough to handle the performance and smooth enough for overdrive cruising. Plus, there\'s power steering, modern tires, and drilled & slotted front disc brakes for a great all-around driving experience.
This is a very fresh build that carefully crafts a sleeper around a terrific powerplant. It\'s the kind of Impala we all want, but there\'s only one up for grabs. So don\'t miss out, call today!
