Description

Sometimes just finding a clean old car is a great thing. Take this 1969 Chevy Impala for example. Fresh out of California it has a lot of originality a funky color combination and is the kind of car you'd never think of buying for yourself until you saw it in the flesh. And once you do yeah it's pretty darned cool! The big Imp carries itself well like a heavyweight prizefighter in formalwear. As a super clean California car you can tell how nice this one is at a single glance. You'll be even more impressed to learn that's the original vinyl top which hasn't been baked by the sun or trapped moisture underneath. The single repaint was done a few years ago in the original Olympic Gold color and it's the perfect hue on the late-60s icon. Unlike many of its contemporaries the Impala doesn't carry a lot of excess chrome so the simple body side moldings show off the arrow-straight bodywork but don't offer a lot of flash and both bumpers are excellent. You'll also note a black pinstripe that accents the upper curve of the fenders doors and quarter panels an upscale look that definitely works. And if you want impressive check out the interior! Those are the original seats complete with kitschy brocade fabric inserts and there are no split seams or frayed edges anywhere. The carpet has been recently replaced and while they might be original the door panels are just so nice that it's hard to say for certain. I kind of like that about original cars that have been so carefully maintained it's like automotive archaeology to try to figure out what's original and what's new. The instrument panel is massive offering a wide speedo and clustering all the major controls right in front of the driver framing everything with a very nice steering wheel with a cool little Impala logo in its center. The original AM/FM radio remains at your fingertips stashed under a dash pad that hasn't been destroyed by UV rays over the years. As you'd expect the trunk is massive and has nothing to hide with a solid floor and a full-sized spare. Under about an acre of hood you'll find a smooth-running Chevy 327 and a nicely detailed engine bay. Completely stock including the air cleaner valve covers and other frequently replaced items it almost looks too good. Nah who am I kidding this is the kind of car that will draw a crowd with its humble originality and the engine bay is simply showing off a lifetime of clean living in a warm climate. Heck even the exhaust manifolds are crisp and pit-free. Of course the big Imp has power steering but power brakes are oddly absent from the options list although the binders work just fine out on the road. The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic feeding a 10-bolt rear with highway-friendly gears inside. And the 15-inch Rally wheels with black centers and 235/60/15 BFGoodrich radials give it a sporty look that fits. If you like your cars big clean and a little bit unusual think of the potential in this ultra-sanitary Impala. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
