From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

In 1962, the guy driving this cool turquoise blue Impala SS409 convertible was well and truly The Man. Today, thats still true, and when you hear the not-so-subtle rumble of the 409, slip through the gears of the Muncie 4-speed, and watch all the envious eyes on you as you motor away, youll understand. For the guy who understands performance and style, few cars can compare to the illustrious Impala. This is the kind of car that you can recognize blocks away, whether its the lean Impala convertible profile or the traditional triple taillights that were unique to the Imp. Driving this car is like dating a movie star, and you should be ready for question and answer session every time you stop for gas. The glittering blue paint will stand up to scrutiny, and while it was finished a few years ago, its still in fantastic condition. Its a quality restoration that has just the right look of authenticity, making it a high-quality cruiser thats always properly dressed for an event. Fit and finish are quite good, with doors that fit well without needing to give them a hard slam. The sheetmetal is incredibly straight, so the bright paint is a big bonus, not a demerit, because it shows none of the usual flaws a lesser car might have. Chrome and trim is quite good, including the delicate Impala badges on the quarters and crossed-flag emblems up front with the ever-so-small 409 underneath, just in case the guy in the other lane is really paying attention. The interior is pure 60s style, a blend of conservative patterns and shiny trim that looks awesome today. The Impala is particularly interesting due to its unique blend of performance and luxury, making it a rather stylish gentlemans express. The seats wear reproduction covers with proper button-tufted seat backs, theres new carpeting with embroidered SS-logo floor mats, and the door panels show an artists touch. The instruments in that sweeping engine-turned dash are in good shape, and a trio of auxiliary gauges have been stashed under the dash along with a period tach on the steering column (upgraded to be compatible with the HEI ignition system). A convertible with a 4-speed is quite a find, and it looks especially butch with the bucket seats, as if it doesnt care what people think it should be. It also includes an upgraded AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo head unit with subwoofer in the trunk (you think this car was built this way by accident?) and the trunk itself is neatly finished with a correct mat set. Under the hood youll find Chevys legendary 409 cubic inch V8. A legend of 60s performance, its the ultimate early Impala powerplant. With a pair of Edelbrock 4-barrels on a factory intake manifold, HEI ignition, and a healthy cam, its definitely in combat spec. With a recent tune-up and timing set, it runs superbly, although you need to be sharp for a big horsepower engine like this, because it aint no Toyota. Finned valve covers have a matching air cleaner (the stock air cleaner is included with the car) along with Chevy Orange paint give it a flashy look that youll be eager to show off. Other upgrades include high performance exhaust manifolds, a fresh alternator, and a Flowmaster exhaust system that sounds flat-out awesome. Underneath its highly detailed and extremely clean, packing disc brakes up front that are probably a good idea for a car with this much thrust on tap. The weenie 14-inch wheels and tires are gone, replaced by a set of shiny Torque Thrusts and staggered performance radials. A very pretty car with an unusual powertrain combination, this heavily documented Impala will always be on the A-list. Call today!
