We stumble across a lot of clean, numbers-matching vehicles during our obsessive hunt for rare metal, but we can confidently say that only a small fraction of the cars we’ve seen are capable of trading jabs with this period-correct, 1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible. That’s no real slight to them. Rather, more a testament to this stunning, concourse-ready car that’s sure to steal more than a few envious glances at your next cruise night.
Treated to a full frame-off rotisserie restoration, this jaw-dropping Roman Red on red convertible (again, period correct) has been totally restored both inside and out and its clear no expenses were spared in its rehabilitation.
Whether it’s the numbers-matching 348 ci 355 hp Tri-Power V8, the original, numbers-matching four-speed transmission, its arrow-straight body, or its mouth-watering list of options, this has to be one of the cleanest second-generation Impalas you may likely see.
Tissue dispensers? Check. Fender birds? Check and check. Electronic eye (an automatic way to dim your lights for oncoming traffic)? Most definitely. Name an obscure option and there’s a good chance you’ll find it on this Impala.
Of course, pristine metal doesn’t come cheap and you’ll need a whopping $185,000 to park this Bovidae on your boulevard.
