Gateway Classic Cars is super excited to be able to offer this 1960 Chevy Impala 2 door Hardtop! This is a solid AZ car purchased in 1998 by its previous owner and restorer, and the restoration took place over the next 12 years as a driving "work in progress" to its final version of what you see here today, minus all of the mechanical upgrades for comfort, handling, and reliability that were added added as needed. This car has won over 100 awards including 5 Goodguys Nationals, Super Chevy 1st in Class and a Top Ten award. A show car that was driven and is extremely reliable is what hot rodding & collecting are all about!The restoration started with a solid AZ car that retained all of its original Sheetmetal, floors, trunk, and rockers. The Paint and bodywork were professionally performed by ScottRods in Catalina, AZ. Finished in Dupont Tasco Turquoise Base/ Clear. Fully block sanded and buffed with very clean lines, correct door, hood, and trunk gaps, one look tells you why this Impala is the award winner that it is! All of the chrome and stainless were refinished, all glass is new and was installed by Andy's American Glass. (Side and rear glass are tinted & all weatherstripping and seals were replaced.)Powered by its original 348 V8 completely rebuilt and upgraded with electronic ignition and Edelbrock carburetor. That's all backed by a 700R4 transmission with overdrive. A huge 2 row aluminum radiator with thermostat-controlled fans was installed to keep this Impala cool even in the TX heat. Empire driveline built the balanced Slip Shaft driveshaft that connects to the 3.08 differential. Custom suspension sports tubular a-arms, 2 " dropped spindles, and 3 lowered springs, new Ridetech shocks and a newer 6-piston Wilwood power disc brake system was just added on all 4 corners, with huge 13 rotors up front with 12 in the rear.Custom interior by Marvin Strickland sporting Pearl White sculpted seats and door panels. Extra insulation and sound deadening was added throughout. Comfort Features include Tilt column from Ididit, cruise control, electronic intermittent wipers, a new Vintage Air AC and Heat, Pioneer stereo, and a quick ratio power steering box make sure you are riding right! Caringly maintained and enjoyed by the same owner for the last 23+ years up until last year, this car was very special to him. Proven reliable driver, not a trailer queen like most cars of this caliber. It cruises on the highway at 75mph with an rpm of around 2000. It will also come with a huge stack of receipts documenting the build and over 70 trophies and plaques it's won over the years. This 1960 Impala is definitely no slouch!
