Restored Impala Convertible 348 Tri-Power V8 4-speed Power Steering ///
Rolling off GM's historic Janesville, Wisconsin assembly line as an elegant black-on-red charm, this solid Impala has benefitted from comprehensive, body-on restoration that's kept it cruising America's best highways for close to 60 years. At the center of the car's Satin Black engine bay, 348 cubic inches of Turbo Thrust big block hangs a correct 3755011 casting number behind retrofitted tri-power induction. Behind that mill, a trusty Borg Warner T10 4-speed spins a familiar GM rear end that literally sails the engine through its broad power band. Under that capable drivetrain, a fully sorted suspension has been equipped with optional power steering and power drum brakes. At the center of the floors, aluminized, true-dual exhaust utilizes glasspack-style mufflers to weave an aggressive, full-throttle rumble into a raucous idle. And at the corners of the suspension, 8.00-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls frame correct black wheels and polished, spinner-style covers. Between the doors, a correct Red and Ivory interior wraps color-keyed paint and bright trim around taut vinyl surfacing. The wide bench seats show no signs of significant weathering. At the front of those seats, a padded dash floats factory telemetry next to a familiar pushbutton radio. Beneath that ledge, Chevrolet-themed mats protect clean carpet, which is cut around a curved shifter. And in front of the driver, a color-keyed steering wheel spins an ornate Impala insignia around a timeless Sun tachometer. Wrapping the flair of '50s optimism around the flash of '60s performance, car's like this sweet Impala are universally appealing. Call, click or visit https://www.RKMotors.com for more information!
