Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1962 Impala Convertible.
We love a car with a great story here at Sunnyside Classics and this beautiful 62 Impala Convertible certainly has one. Always in the area under local ownership after being bought new in 1962 at Shepperd Chevrolet in Wellington, just a few short miles from our store. We have a copy of the original title and the original owner, from Wellington, owned the car from 1962 to 1991. When he sold his baby in 1991 it had been driven just 43,925 miles. The car went on to have a couple of short-term owners and then was sold to the gentleman we bought it from- he owned it from 1999 till we purchased it.
Today this car has 56,919 ACTUAL MILES on it. This impala has been loved and cared for and still has its original interior to attest to the miles. Its beautiful. This car has NEVER BEEN RUSTY. PERIOD. The owner previous to us wanted the car to be very fresh and had it repainted in its original Ermine White which is quite stunning today. Our understanding was that the original paint was just a bit tired.
Sporting a newer top, great chrome, outstanding original interior, serviceable underside (zero indications of any rust ever) tidy engine compartment, this 62 runs and drives as you would expect a low mileage original to drive. Sporting its powerglide trans, 250 (4bbl) Horsepower 327, and upgraded front disc brakes with power steering I'd put the top down, throw a cooler in the back seat and drive this baby to California tomorrow.
We have a copy of the original title, the original owner's manual filled out in the original owner's name, and a copy of the mileage statement when the original owner sold the car. This is just one of those special cars. Ownership history tells us this is the 327 this car was born with but the engine is stamped 04I4 S. The car was built the first week in April and since the engine has never been changed we are assuming the line worker just felt like putting an I in instead of a 0. Imagine that.
There's a lot of rehacked, rebodied, refloored, refendered, reworked, refreshed, reinteriored, re blah blah blah cars out there. We rarely see them like this and when we do we buy them and love them. If you understand that then you will truly appreciate this car.
Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.
We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet…. We pride ourselves on having good cars and representing them properly.
