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.
<br><br> 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.
<br><br> 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.
<br><br> 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.
<br><br> 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!
