In just a few short years, Walter P. Chrysler took his company from an unknown automotive manufacturer to fourth in the industry. Walter Chrysler was a perfectionist with a deep mechanical background. This aspect, probably more than anything, helped to make Chrysler Corporation grow quickly.
A viable alternative that's still daring and different, the 1968 Chevy Impala SS 427. SS 427 Impalas are very distinctive and unique. Sales were modest, so finding an Impala SS 427, especially a convertible, could be a little challenging.
Classic Car Overview
1993 Cadillac Allante Convertible The Cadillac Allant is a two-door, two-seater luxury roadster produced by Cadillac from 1987 until 1993. It used a Cadillac chassis and running gear with a body built in Italy by coach builder Pininfarina. It was expensive to produce with the complete bodies flown to Detroit for final assembly. Over 21,000 were built during its seven-year production run. Offered for consignment the last year of production of this model Cadillac, which was available only in convertible form. A stout V8 is crammed in under the hood, and in 1993 was subjected to the gas guzzler tax, but hey, performance was king with this car. Exterior A nice coating of Polo Green covers the exterior of this steel paneled car. Three inches front fascia spoiler enhances high-speed aerodynamics while new, one-piece side window glass improved weather sealing and acoustics. A long front hood which hides the Northstar V8 shows in good condition. The passengers side suffers from a dent near the headlight on the front quarter. Also, a thin chrome trim piece has a dent in the drivers front. Door gaps are within good tolerances, and steel panels are straight and true. A headlight washer system is noted, as well as a pristine showroom condition trunk. Black molded vinyl surrounds the bottom of this car, and shows slight fading, as do the fold away rear-view mirrors. 16 Inch cast aluminum wheels are seen all around. The canvas convertible top is in good condition and operates smoothly. Interior Nuance leather-trimmed bucket seats orthopedically designed to provide optimal support and comfort are seen when opening the door. The seats have power eight-way metaphoric adjustments and a new four-way power lumbar control. These buckets are showing in nice lightly aged condition. They flank a center console equipped with transmission shift selector that is slightly offset 20 degrees toward the driver for ease of shifting. Leather stitching on the door panels is nearly perfect. Power windows, seat adjustment, and power locks are a few of the buttons seen in the door armrest area. The dash is all electronic readouts and a tower if you will, is sitting to the right of the dash and houses the climate controls, radio and CD player, and trip computer which also displays driver information. Drivetrain This debut also introduced the world to the Northstar V-8 engine, which now powered the Allante, replacing the 4.5-liter V-8 formerly used. As with all other Northstar applications, the 4.6-liter V-8 was paired with the 4T80-E electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission. The Northstar engine featured highly efficient compound-geometry valve/port designs and quiet coil Direct Ignition System designed to operate at high rpm levels without loss of spark synchronization. The engines dual stream injector Fluid Induction System was another innovation. This system was isolated from under hood heat sources and cooled the fuel during operation, which enhanced performance. A paired 4T80-E transmission featured a controlled-flow, dual lubricating system that provides proper lubrication under all operating conditions. Free-wheeling clutches ensure consistent shifting quality. Undercarriage Presenting very clean and rust free, obviously pampered and garaged, the undercarriage is impressive. Structurally sound and featuring a vastly upgraded road sensing suspension, speed sensitive steering and the new-generation Bosch ASRIIU traction control system. This convertible also benefits from receiving the short/long arm (SLA) rear suspension that improved steering responsiveness. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and good driver, comfortable ride, and quick straight stopper. Top down and enjoyable every mile! A luxurious powerful toy could best describe this small but near muscle horsepower Caddy. A smooth runner, and well maintained mechanically automobile, with near perfect interior. Drop the top and go for a winding cruise in the middle of nowhere and you will quickly be lost in your own satisfaction.
