Authentic SS model with matching numbers

The fourth generation of the Chevrolet Impala debuted in 1965, selling more than 1,000,000 units in its first year alone.  As it had since 1961, an SS model was available, marking the range’s highest performance model. Rather than a simple appearance package, the Impala SS was a potent weapon for the road. In 1966, it featured revised styling in the form of a new grille and rectangular taillights. The ‘Strato-Bucket’ seats were also revised to go along with other optional interior modifications. A true landmark of the muscle car era, an Impala SS is a blue chip collectible that will continue to garner significant interest from enthusiasts and collectors alike. 

The Motorcar Offered
 

This exceptional SS Convertible is a matching numbers example that has been carefully used and maintained since a comprehensive restoration. Every detail is correct for the model and it exhibits the muscular stance that marks this particular breed. Underhood resides a 396 cid V-8 powerplant in a properly clean and detailed engine compartment, brightened, however, through the judicious use of some anodised fittings and braided line. Opportunities to obtain an authentic example of Chevrolet’s classic muscle car are rare, making this a vehicle to be enjoyed and treasured. 

Estimate:  $38,000-41,000
