1966 Chevrolet Impala ConvertibleThe 1966 Chevrolet Impala convertible was a car that mixed style, size, and flair. So it's great to find a custom example that maximizes that feeling everywhere from the custom paint to the big block power.
The paint that's instantly grabbing your attention is called Evening Orchid. It's a color Chevrolet had for a brief time in the '60s, and it really knows how attract eyes today. This upgrade is a quality application that loves to radiate in the sunlight. But it's more than just the paint that makes this full-size drop-top so attractive. The trim that runs the full length and wraps around the rear has been custom finished in gold. So it draws extra attention to how straight the panels are. Plus, it's a well-coordinated accenting with the rocker trim, wheel well trim, and even the windshield sunshade are done in gold. And the addition of the 17-inch REV alloys completes this custom cruiser look.
The crisp white vinyl roof looks outstanding against the special paint. But you'll also love to see it power down to reveal the full white interior. The seats, door panels, and convertible boot have the clean look of a solid investment. Plus, the gold acceding continues inside. The dash trim was upgraded to gold, and this combines with the door trim, upgraded gas pedal, and floor mats to deliver a well-coordinated golden look inside. This is a full-sized machine, so that means plenty of room to take family and friends along for the ride. There are also nice features like an upgraded retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, and this was a factory A/C car (currently only the controls remain.) But even when you're just cruising solo, this Chevy is a great machine. The front bucket seats with a center console in-between means it's easy to find your individual level of comfort. The factory dual-spoke steering wheel gives you an excellent view of the full gauge panel, including the ultra-wide speedometer.
Filling the engine bay is terrific big block power. After all, the 454 cubic-inch V8 is a legendary Chevy powerhouse, and so it's ready to give you plenty of touring comfort. And while you'll marvel at the cool gold accents that coordinate within rest of the car, don't forget to spot the practical features, like the newer aluminum radiator. Then you add in great features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, and a supple ride. It's this powerful operation and luxury cruising attitude that makes the convertible so desirable.
This is the distinct Chevy that runs strong and turns heads. We all love this kind of distinction, but there's only one up for grabs, so call today!
