1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible

Today’s car is a 1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible and it is owned by Richard Garcia. It is finished Ermine white and Roman Red insert with a red and white houndstooth interior and a white convertible top and boot. It is powered by a 250 hp, 348 cu in, 5.7 liter, V8 with a single 4- bbl carburetor. Transferring that power through a 3-speed Turboglide automatic transmission and delivering that power to the rear wheels through 3.55:1 rear end. Helping slow this baby down are 11-inch drum brakes all around. The front suspension is conventional independent with long and short control arms equipped with ball joints and coil springs. The rear suspension consist of a four-link arrangement with coil springs that included an upper control arm, 

The original MSRP was $2954.00. The total number of 1960 Chevrolets produced was 1,391,485 of which 79,903 were Impala convertibles. This is a great original car that would do great at a all GM or Chevrolet car show or cruising to the beach for a casual Sunday morning brunch. Thanks for riding along. Frank
