Classic Car Overview

Documented with original sales order! This Impala has received a concourse rotisserie restoration. Extremely rare #s matching 348-350 hp tri-power with a 4-speed and a 3.70 posi. manual from the factory! Special ordered by William Harlivy at Ayers Motor Company on 12-2-60 with the performance driveline. This car was ordered before the SS option was available. So In May of 1961 he had the dealer add the SS package which had recently become available. The car already had the performance driveline, so it only needed a few bolt on items: trunk and rear quarter emblems, a Sun tach mounted on the steering column, a passenger grab bar and a chrome plate on the hump around the shifter. The original owner kept the car for 40 years and only drove it 68,000 miles before selling it in 2000. Thats when it received a six-figure professional restoration. What else can you ask for! This bubble top is a dream come true! EXTERIOR: This is the original color combination for this vehicle! The Roman red paint is smooth, shiny, and reflective. It was applied with great attention to detail and has been impeccably cared for since its professional restoration. Very desirable bubble top body style. The fit and finish of all the body panels are absolutely fantastic. The doors open and close easily like a new car. The gaps are flawless and consistent all the way around. All the chrome trim including the grille and bumpers have been restored and have a highly reflective finish to them. It is decked out with dual rear antenna, dual bowtie mirrors and bumper guards. It is sitting pretty on reproduction 14 inch Silvertown BFG tires mounted on red rims with factory chrome spinner hubcaps. The windshield and side windows appear to have been replaced, rear window looks original. The exterior of this car is something special! INTERIOR: Sitting inside this car you can feel the nostalgia! It is restored like new original condition. Its full of rare options including power windows and a padded dash. SS features include the Sun tachometer, grab bar and shifter bezel. Seatbelts and Chevy mats were added. The fully reupholstered interior is comfortable and looks amazing! The front bench seat leaves you plenty of room to snuggle with your sweetheart. The rear seat allows room for the entire family if you desire. The headliner has been replaced and does not sag. The material on the visors matches the headliner. It has a day/night rearview mirror that looks like new. The padded dash is in exceptional condition as well as the gauge cluster, knobs, and controls. I love the two-tone painted steering wheel. The door panels are in excellent condition and have the very rare factory power window controls included. All the carpeting has been replaced It looks like new. The original 4-speed shifter and knob protrudes through the floor. Absolutely no disappointments with the interior of this beauty! ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Take a deep breath and soak it all in! This is the original #s matching 348 Tri-Power. It is the highest horsepower available out of five versions of the 348. It is making 350 hp with a performance cam and solid lifters. It was completely rebuilt at the time of restoration and currently runs amazing. The underside of the hood and fender wells have been painted a satin finish black that is smooth and neatly applied. The motor is factory correct; stock manifolds, carbs and reproduction spark plug wires. The original orange valve covers are included along with the chrome ones its wearing. It has factory power brakes, windshield washers and the Sun tachometer unit. A power steering was added which makes it much more enjoyable to drive, all the original parts are included if you wanted to put it back to original. It has reproduction hoses, clamps and spring clamp battery cables. All the hoses have been run appropriately. It is show quality, very detailed! TRUNK COMPARTMENT: This is an exceptional trunk compartment! When you lift the trunk lid youll notice the paint on its underside is done to the same quality as the body. It has reproduction stickers added. The weatherstrip has been replaced. The metal inside the trunk is impeccable! It has been neatly painted with the correct spatter finish paint. It has a reproduction mat. 5th matching reproduction tire on a restored rim for a spare. Restored jack and lug wrench are included. The original valve covers and manual steering gearbox are in the trunk as well if youd like to return this car to absolute factory spec. This trunk compartment is truly like new! UNDERSIDE: The quality and detail of this undercarriage is exquisite! It was lifted off the frame and flipped on a rotisserie. All the steering and suspension has been rebuilt and detailed. It even has correct spiral shocks. The power brake system has drums all the way around and has been totally rebuilt. The full dual exhaust system has been replaced. It includes flowmaster mufflers and polished chrome tips exiting behind the rear tires. It looks fresh and has been run with factory style bends. The fuel system has all been replaced and look like new. Looking up at the motor it is spotless Chevy Orange with correct starter and canister type oil filter. It is the original Borg Warner T-10 4-speed manual trans according to the codes and dates. It looks fresh. The positraction rear end is also original according to the codes and dates. It was ordered as a 3.70 posi. It looks freshly rebuilt and is neatly painted black. The floors are very smooth and rust free. They have been painted the correct red oxide primer and look excellent. The underbelly of this car is exceptional everywhere I look! SERVICE: This car has received an extensive inspection by our team of professional mechanics and the following items were repaired or replaced: replaced the fuel hose and added a filter and repaired a bent guide channel on the window. This car was maintained and very dialed in from the previous owner! It is absolutely ready to cruise! Yes, the condition is amazing. What really made it extra special for me is the order sheet documenting the car. Only 458 Super Sports were made total and today they are impossible to authenticate without documentation. Even though this one went back to the dealer to have the SS trim added, it was born with the performance driveline. This is an extremely rare investment grade Impala. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own such a remarkable piece of American automotive history! I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the cars condition in detail. These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership. 815 385 3644 9-5 central Sales@volocars.com Answered ASAP Power steering Power brakes Tri-Power 3.70 posi Power windows Grab bar Sun tachometer Padded dash Seat belts Chevy mats Dual mirrors Dual antenna Spinners Whitewalls Bumper guard Original sales order
