1960 Impala Sport Sedan Restoration - Spraying some hi-build primer!
Applying the first coat of Featherfill G2 high build primer to my 1960
Impala 4 door hardtop. I have my gun set for lower pressure and thus a
smaller fan width so I don't blow over-spray all over my shop and into the
underside of the car that is already restored and painted. It takes longer
to spray, but I'm not in a hurry anyway. Watch the progress on this car at
my restoration blog at www.60impala.com.

This spectacular 1960 Impala convertible received a high-quality frame-on
restoration to a very high standard. With a few thoughtful modifications to
enhance the driving experience, it presents in spectacular Roman Red with a
red and white leather interior and a white top, which is perhaps the best
combination of colors on these cars. Bodywork is fantastic, and you can
easily see how well it has been done in the crisp reflections in its paint
and the laser-straight alignment of the side trim. The two-stage paint is
vivid and deep, and anywhere you go, this car will be a one car parade.
The top powerplant for the Impala was a 348 cubic inch V8, and this one
features a single four-barrel carburetor which helps it generate a
respectable 250 horsepower. If you're
familiar with these cars, you'll be delighted to see options like the
original power steering pump integrated with the generator, the single
master cylinder atop the original brake Booster, and those very distinctive valve
covers with bowtie emblems.. You'll note reproduction radiator and heater
hoses, correct tower hose clamps, and even a reproduction Delco battery
complete with warning tag. It's hard to believe that this car has been
driven, because the engine bay is so spectacular.
Sharp-eyed viewers will be able to spot an important modification, however,
and that's the dipstick tube for the TH350 3-speed automatic installed
behind the engine. The body has not been removed from the frame, but that
doesn't mean that the chassis wasn't cleaned, scrubbed, prepped and painted
satin black as original. Super clean floors show signs of the original
undercoating, while things like the front and rear suspension, as well as
the brakes, have been completely rebuilt. A brand new reproduction Exhaust system hugs the contours of the
X-frame and sounds great with the proper mufflers mounted up front. New
BFGoodrich wide whitewall radials on the original steel wheels make it
handle like a new car.
Perhaps this car's most noteworthy feature, however, is the dazzling red
and white hound's tooth interior. Beautifully executed, the entire interior
is new, from the seats, to the door panels with their exquisitely detailed
armrests, to the fresh carpets underfoot. Ahead of that restored steering
wheel with its chrome horn ring, you'll find a quintet of instruments
molded into the dashboard for a look that's very futuristic for 1960. In
back, the wide, comfortable bench is split by a rear-mounted speaker, and
overhead there's a brilliant white convertible top that stows neatly under
a red boot when it's down. The trunk reminds us of how big full-sized cars
really were, and features some very well-fitted mats and a wide whitewall
tire on a fifth restored steel wheel with jacking instructions.
This 1960 Impala convertible is an extremely impressive car in every way.
The quality of the restoration work is beyond reproach, and the color
combination and styling make it a complete knockout at shows. However, this
one has been tuned for the road, thanks to the sweet-running 348 under the
hood and the upgraded transmission. This is a car without vices, and it
drives easily with just your fingertips on the wheel, and until you've
experienced a full-sized '60s luxury car, you haven't lived. This car is
also very reasonably priced compared to its 1958 and '59 siblings, and is
arguably just as handsome. Don't miss this opportunity and call today!
