1963 Impala SS 409 Convertible
This stunningly restored ’63 Impala SS convertible is painted in it’s original Palomar Red Poly (paint code 948), with black interior and of course, a 409 c.i., 425 horse engine and 4-speed transmission. This restoration was done to a high level of detail, evident by the replication of grease-pencil marks on the cowl that were originally done during assembly at the factory. It even rolls on authentic reproduction bias-ply whitewall tires. One thing does stand out about this car as being possibly not-quite-factory in appearance, and that is the ride height. While all cars do settle over time as the springs lose their strength, original photos of brand-new Chevys from this era that were taken by proud new owners show that they never sat this high off the ground. The new reproduction springs apparently do not accurately copy the originals. Other than that, this car looks just about perfect!
