This 1960 Chevrolet Impala presents as highly original, having been repainted in a manner that would refresh its character. With only one repaint to its factory correct Tuxedo Black paint accented with red body-side spears, this car certainly has road presence as it has traveled 27,500 believed to be original miles.
The 1960 model year was a great success for the Impala, being the second year of the bat wing body style, and it featured the reintroduction of the iconic triple round tail lights, a drastically restyled front grille and a slightly higher roof profile. The exterior of the car has undergone a subtle cosmetic restoration in its original color Tuxedo Black. The paint is in great condition along with an abundance of eye catching chrome that includes rearview mirrors and rocker moldings, along with stylish tinted windows and Impala badging.
The red vinyl and deluxe red and white cloth weave interior sports a split bench front seat Interior is in perfect condition. Interior comfort options include factory air, power steering, heater, defroster and AM radio. The gauges have been upgraded to full digital display.
A 348 ci W-series Turbo Thrust V-8 provides the power and is topped with new FiTech fuel injection, fitted with dual exhaust and is mated to an updated electronically controlled automatic transmission shifted by a column mounted shifter.
The brakes have been updated to a dual master cylinder with front discs and five spoke rims and low profile tires are included along with the original hub caps.
The car has not been driven since the completion of the cosmetic renewal and would be a great contender to turn heads at your local cruise night or car show.
