1969 Chevrolet Impala
Convertible Car for sale in Tallapoosa, Georgia 30176
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
Spectacular ’69 CHEVY IMPALA 325 hp, 396 Convertible
One owner since 1978, Fresh Restoration
Mileage: 27,500 showing on odometer, believed correct but unable to certify
Just home from the restoration shop, this rare and wonderful big block convertible is ready for the beach, the mountains, or just for cruising to the car show or the drive-in.
She is a superb example of the classic land yacht; massive and plush, yet quick and powerful. Her 396 cid Turbo-Jet engine and Turbo-Hydromatic transmission have been driven less than 1,000 miles since being rebuilt, producing 325 horses and 410 pounds of torque for her twelve-bolt heavy duty rear axle. New 225 / 70R15 General RT 4 3 tires deliver all that power to the asphalt.
Get a string bikini on your best model and photograph his/her reflections in that fresh LeMans Blue Metallic (arguably the best color for this model) paint with its mirror finish. You won’t have to work around imperfections in that long, straight body (the car’s) and you won’t see wavy distortions or blemishes, because there aren’t any. If you can take your eyes off your model, notice that all the bright-work is new – bumpers to door handles. Even the tail lights have been replaced with new ones.
Admire how the new white top matches the Madrid grain double-stitched white interior (older restoration to original standards - multiple narrow, padded pleats, metal inserts) and how it perfectly contrasts with the Daytona Blue paint that matches the new blue carpeting.
Open the door and let your honey slide into an incredibly comfortable seat. Ease in yourself and be delighted at how roomy and comfortable the Impala’s interior really is. If you feel like you’re sitting on a plushy sofa, that’s because the seats are made with real furniture springs and extra heavy foam.
Give the accelerator a few pats. She wakes up slowly because that’s a classic CarterJet 4 bbl carburetor sitting atop the powerplant. (You won’t see any difference later when you open the hood, but there’s a new electronic distributer (no points) to fire her off. Let her rumble for a minute to come alive while you push down the top button.
Did you notice the glass rear window? It won’t crease or darken like vinyl windows sometimes do. Listen to the top motor whine as new top hydraulic pistons open up the cockpit. If you can stand to ignore those new Flowmaster mufflers connected to a complete new aluminized dual exhaust system, switch on the radio. It looks almost like original equipment (the original is available with the car), but it is a new Bluetooth, signal seeking unit delivering audio to a new combination speaker system. Sounds good.
Now lever into drive and take her down the road. Be pleased at how well she behaves on that new suspension package. Wave back at her admirers. Enjoy the breeze on your face, the sun on your hair. If the sun’s too warm, crank up the Impala’s air conditioning unit that’s already been converted to R134 refrigerant so you don’t have to worry about the environment. Be in love. You deserve it. And don’t think about stopping. You’ve got those big disc front brakes, new calipers and fresh pads to take care of that.
