This 1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible is a great looking and wonderfully running and driving convertible! When Chevrolet debuted its passenger car lineup for 1960, they sported a completely new redesign from the previous year. Sitting atop of Chevys passenger car hierarchy was the Impala, with with the Impala Convertible being the pinnacle. At the nose, the new-look grilles were now oval shaped and had dual enclosed headlights. New jet-inspired side trim ran from the doors through the rear, replacing the straight style trim in 1959. Perhaps the most notable stylistic change occurred at the tail of the 60 Impala, where the tailfins were flatter and more reserved. Moreover, the famous cat-eye taillights from 59 were replaced in 1960 with the triple style taillights that were carried forward in the Impala models through the mid-60s. Interestingly, the Impala Convertible was the only convertible in Chevys 60 lineup that could seat more than 2 passengers, which made it and continues to make it one of the most desirable Chevrolets of the time. This particular 60 Impala comes to us from a collector whose family kept the car in their family for over 30 years.
