STK 2714 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS
Chevrolet debuted the SS option for their full-size Impala in 1961 and the concept took off in 1962. Exterior visual elements of the Super Sport model featured "convertible roof" styling, additional chrome trim and an engine-turned aluminum-and-chrome panel to house the triple-unit taillight assemblies. This special trim was also used to fill the side moldings, giving the SS model a distinctive appearance. Our 1962 Impala Super Sport is a great example of one of Chevrolet's best looking full-size models - striking from any angle. A full restoration with mechanical enhancements was performed in 2012. As can be seen in the pictures, the exterior is straight and true. The Ermine White paint was professionally applied and the SS chrome/stainless pieces are in very good condition. The restored S/S interior is an invitation to go back in time, but with cold A/C and an AM/FM stereo package. Horsepower is furnished by a rebuilt 350ci small-block. It is fitted with an Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock Performance Series 4-barrel carb and stock Chevy 'rams horn' exhaust manifolds. It sounds strong through a free flowing dual exhaust and is backed by a 3-speed Turbo350 automatic. GM 15” rally wheels w/trim rings and centers mount radial blackwall tires. The clean chassis is equipped with power steering, disc/drum brakes (new) and a dual power-assisted master. Many front-end components have also been refreshed. Overall, this Impala Super Sport looks very much like it did sitting on the showroom floor in 1962, but performs much, much better. It must be seen and driven to be appreciated.
