This sparkling diamond white 1962 Impala convertible is an awesome summertime cruiser with a 327 and a top that goes down-what more can a guy ask for? Not intended to be a concours competitor, it''s a fantastic driver whose builder focused on getting the basics right, so it looks great and drives even better! We all know that the 1962 Impala is an icon, celebrated in movies, TV shows, and music videos as the ultimate early-60s toy. But finding a good one can be a challenge, so when this clean white Imp rolled into our showroom, we knew it was a winner. The bodywork is straight, including those massive quarters, which show no rust or major accident damage. Body gaps are good, and the crisp details like the character line that swoops down from the headlights to the rear bumper remain sharply defined. The metalflake in the paint is intentionally oversized, giving the car a glittering appearance that definitely draws attention. Of course, any Impala needs that trademark trim running along its flanks, and on this one it has been painted to match the interior, a nice contrast that works extremely well. Dual antennas, great chrome on the bumpers, and a crisply restored grille all reinforce the best aspects of the early Impalas. The handsome turquoise vinyl interior is stock and may very well be original, given the quality of the materials and the light patina it shows. The seats are excellent, with no rips or tears in the material, and the back seat looks almost like new. The carpets show some wear, most notably in the driver''s footwell where it''s expected, but overall present quite well. All of the instruments, the dash pad, and the dashboard itself appear to be original as well, and for their age are remarkably well preserved. There appear to be no significant modifications, from the column-mounted shifter for the 2-speed PowerGlide transmission to the original AM radio, suggesting that someone appreciated the original design and knew there was just no way to improve on it. Overhead there''s a new black power convertible top with a crystal clear rear window. A 327 cubic inch V8 has been nestled between this Imp''s front fenders and dressed in period-appropriate details. Chevy Orange paint on the block and heads, ram''s horn exhaust manifolds, all topped by a set of chrome valve covers with proper ''327'' stickers make it look like it was born there. Other items like the low-profile air cleaner, the fresh chrome alternator, and pulley set give it an updated look that brightens the original-looking engine bay. Recent 215/70/14 whitewall radials on traditional chrome Cragar mags (including a matching fifth wheel in the trunk!) give it a slick period look. This is a great-looking code 18 V8 Impala convertible for a bargain price. Call today!
