NICELY RESTORED, 283, 330 MILES ON FULL RESTO, BEAUTIFUL RED ON BLACK, MUST-SEE!
Just about any 1963 Chevy Impala you run across is a collector's piece, but the one to own is a legitimate V8 hardtop like this lovely Riverside Red coupe with a nicely restored 283 under the hood. While fashion comes and goes, the timeless Impala will always be cool.
As you know, we sell a lot of these cars, but there haven't been many as clean and straight as this one. As a lifelong southern car, there's no worries of rust or rot on the body, and while we may take it for granted, cars like this just don't come along all that often. Aside from the paint, which is eyeball-searing, the sheetmetal is straight enough to work at NASA. Just look at the long strip of trim running from behind the front fender opening, which streaks along the bodywork uninterrupted with no signs of misalignment or even notable body gaps. Now THAT's craftsmanship. Get close up and you won't be disappointed, because the chrome has been buffed and polished, the stainless is bright, and all the stock emblems are in place-no fake SS badges need apply. It even includes an accessory gas door guard protector, and, of course, six taillights just like all the Impalas before it.
We're divided on the interior-some say it's perfectly preserved and original, but others say it's just too nice to be 50 years old. Either way, it's spectacular and goes to prove that this car is one of the sharpest '63s we've seen. New or old, the seats are supportive and comfortable, showing minimal wear and no damage, while things like the carpets, headliner, and probably the door panels are brand new. The markings on the rebuilt gauges are crisp and clean, showing GM's penchant for three-dimensional designs where the needles hid behind the markings on a clear plastic face for a very cool effect. The odometer shows 355 miles, and that's since the bulk of the restoration work was finished, so this car is fresh! One glance in the door jambs will prove how thorough the restoration work was, and extra details like the beautifully painted trunk suggest that these guys went the extra mile here.
The engine is the 283 cubic inch V8, fully rebuilt and ready to rock. The engine bay is fully detailed as original, including proper paint on the block, plain steel valve covers, and the big black air cleaner up top. Simplicity guarantees reliability, and the orderly engine bay suggests that this car is ready to drive without worries, and with an upgraded camshaft inside, it's just a little more entertaining. Underneath, there's a rugged TH350 3-speed automatic surrounded by spotless floors, a fresh exhaust, and expert workmanship. Four correct 7.50x14 whitewalls have been fitted to the original wheels, which wear SS hubcaps.
Restoring any car is a big investment, so take advantage of this opportunity to get a fresh, fully restored Impala with everything already done. Call today!
