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.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
Highly original, ultra-low mileage, but with the right upgrades (like the A/C interior,) this V8-powered 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS delivers on all the best of your nostalgia. Ermine white is one of those great classic Chevy colors. It was the only one offered on the first Corvette, and it seems to have found the right home on this upscale Impala. The white has the kind of gloss and shine on this factory-correct color tells you someone invested in a respray to keep it looking regal. Plus, the pillarless hardtop profile, wraparound chrome bumpers, and dual aerials represent the era correctly. This well-preserved appearance is likely no accident on a car that has barely averaged over 650 miles annually. And because this shows all the right signs of being a true Impala Super Sport, you get the right features like full badging, full-length trim with sporty machine-turned insert, and the hallmark six-light tail panel set within another machine-turned insert. So this is a highly correct and quite impressive total package. Arguably theres nothing better than a factory red interior. After all, you can almost see it radiating from within the white exterior. You have the right SS feature like the bucket seats and center console. Plus, there are great original elements like premium button-top presentation thats on the door panels and seats. In fact, look over everything, because youll see all the right factory elements from the dual-spoke steering wheel, to the AM radio thats still on display. But there is one obvious upgrade that makes this Impala so nice. Modern R134a air conditioning means you can take everyone for a ride in this full-sized coupe, and they all get to stay comfortable. Under the hood is a very tidy 283 cubic-inch V8, and the consignor states this is the original motor. It certainly looks the part with the fresh orange block, matching valve covers, factory air topper, and cleanly installed upgrades like the compressor. It inhales deeply through a Rochester four-barrel carburetor, and the newer dual exhaust gives you the right V8 tone. Plus, this is an easy cruiser with the Powerglide automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes. This is an in-demand coupe with exceptionally low mileage and a high degree of originality. And when you add in the ideal upgrades, you know this is the ideal classic. So dont let this SS slip away, call today!
