Used 1962 Chevrolet Impala

1962 Chevrolet Impala The Impala was designed as Chevrolet’s full-size sedan, and was first introduced in 1958. The third generation cars, built between 1961 and 1964 have become one of the most beloved classics of the era, and have a reputation for being great platforms for customization. This 1962 Impala 2-Door coupe has been lovingly restored, with numerous special features that turned it from a 1960s family car, into a one of a kind classic. Finished in Electric Blue Metallic with a white roof, this car was subject to a complete frame-off restoration between 2012 and 2015 by local enthusiast Rich Hinrichs. While the car was pulled apart, considerable time was spent getting the body dialed in, now featuring excellent panel gaps, and the glossy paint was laid down to a show-car finish. This was then paired with a set of staggered 19-inch front/20-inch rear Billet Specialties wheels, which show off the 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes that sit behind them. One of the things this era of Impala became notorious for was the use of hydraulic suspensions that allowed the car to bounce or drive with only 3 wheels on the road. Although this car doesn’t have that sort of system, a Ridetech air suspension has been installed with a 5-gallon “Airpod” in the trunk which allows you to drop the car to the ground when you show up at a car show, but then raise the car up to then drive home. The interior has been totally reupholstered to match the striking exterior, in blue and white two-tone vinyl. Open the door and it is a stunning look, with even the 2-spoke original steering wheel refinished to match. A trio of small AutoMeter gauges sit in front of the driver, and a center console has been crafted which gives a place to mount the Pioneer head unit (with backup camera) and a pair of cup holders. A Vintage Air air conditioning system has been installed, as have power windows and power locks. Of course, you wouldn’t go to all the trouble of building a car of this quality and not touch the motor! Under the hood sits a 6.2-liter blueprinted stroker V8 that is running an EZ-EFI fuel injection system. Sitting behind this engine is a 200 R4 3-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels through a 3.73 positraction rear end. Jet coated headers keep underhood temps down, and a custom exhaust system exits just in front of the rear wheels and makes an excellent sound. An aluminum radiator was installed to keep things cool, and of course, power steering and power brakes were both added. This car is ready for a summer of car shows and includes a ready-made show board with all of the cars information on it. If you are looking for a fun, dependable and usable classic that is also going to attract attention everywhere you go, this 1962 Impala would be the perfect choice.  Key Features * 3-Year Frame Off Restoration from 2012-2015 * 383ci V8 * Blueprinted * 4 Bolt Main Bearing * Roller Cam * Aluminum Heads * Aluminum Valve Covers * 200 R4 3-Speed Automatic w/Overdrive * Ridetech Air Suspension * 5-Gallon “Airpod” Trunk Tank * Power Steering * Power Brakes * Vintage Air Conditioning * Wilwood Disc Brakes * Stainless Steel Lines * Billet Specialties Wheels * 19-Inch Front * 20-Inch Rear * Ididit Tilt Steering Column * Auto Meter Gauges * Fully Painted Undercarriage Additional Information * EZ-EFI Controller * Wheel Lock Kit * Show Board For more information on this 1962 Chevrolet Impala or any of our 150+ High-Performance, Exotic, Luxury, and Special Interest Cars always in stock, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants or feel free to drop by our 40,000+ sq ft of Indoor Showrooms in Bellevue, WA - Home of an Exciting Inventory of Luxury, Exotic, High Performance and Collectible Automobiles.
