Chevrolet Impala 1960
A Trophy Winning '60 Impala Sports Coupe
In 1960 the Impala was America’s best selling car and it held that position for a decade.
This one is a stunning example of the ’60 Impala Sports Coupe and is quite rare as it has the 348 ci (5.7 litre) Triple Power V8 with a 4 speed on the floor. If a picture paints a thousand words then these images say it all. Take a look at the interior, totally outrageous in colour and design, you don’t get that today!
It is in amazing condition and was featured in Classic American car magazine July 2017. Paul Bussey, the Photo Journalist said to me, ‘it is just like new’, that sums it up, to the very last detail this is how it left the factory, although it does now have power steering and front disc brakes.
The design team back then had no worries of mpg or emissions, just cool styling, smooth power and a spacious car. It is a full 6 seater and the trunk (OK boot..) is 906 litres!
The 348 is super smooth, at 25 mph in top gear this Impala will pull away without fuss.
Chevrolet did not coin the slogan ‘The Heartbeat of America’ without justification.
