A real-deal 1966 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport convertible is a wonderful thing. But then when you check out the authentic style - right down to the V8 - and see the cool paperwork. You soon realize this is the kind of drop-top you love for its presence and pedigree.
The '66 Impalas were part of a new era that made them longer, lower, and sleeker. It was an irresistible style, and in fact, we know that for sure about this one. We have the original sales invoice where this 1966 car was sold when it first came out in the fall of '65. It also shows that this was sold new in Detroit, and there's always something extra-cool about an American classic coming out of Motown. This one also gets the details right with the Super Sport badging, wraparound chrome bumpers, and full-length trim that even wraps around the rear. The factory-correct Regal Red has a solid shine from a respray later in life. It goes with the easy cruiser attitude, or you may choose to update/upgrade. What really makes this cool are the subtle upgrades you want on an SS. The dual exhaust tips have a nice polish. And while the 17-inch wheels are larger than what the factory offered they have a classic torque thrust design and redline tires.
The white top has a timelessly attractive look against the red exterior, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an equally attractive white interior. You'll appreciate the little details, like how the big clock next to the speedometer is still ticking away, and the Delco AM radio is still there as a display. And the seats and door panels even still have their correct trim. It all makes for a highly original and highly authentic total package. The full-size nature of the Impala makes it quite attractive to comfortably take along family and friends. But as a Super Sport, you also have the right pieces to enjoy this going solo. Front bucket seats, a center console in-between, and a floor shifter give the driver an individual level of comfort.
Under the hood is an honest and authentic style 283 cubic-inch V8. It's an era-correct block of the correct style motor, and the consignor even claims originality. A car like this was built for cruising, and so you have good features like the Powerglide automatic transmission, power steering, and a supple ride. Plus, while the engine is stock, you may have noticed a newer power brake booster in the engine bay. It goes with the front discs and modern sport tires to give you enhanced confidence on the road.
The sale comes with the original sales invoice, Protecto-o-Plate warranty card, and owner's manual packet. This is the Impala that knows how to both drive and arrive. So if you want a drop-top cruiser that has a story to tell, call today!
