1963 Chevrolet Impala SS Sport Coupe 283ci V8 – 9/10 In Regards to Quality And Fit And Finish
This 1963 Chevrolet Impala SS is a two-door sport coupe that was disassembled and refurbished in 2017 with a repaint in white, new body gaskets, fresh blue interior upholstery, a rebuild of its 283ci V8, resealing of its two-speed automatic transmission, brake work, and more.
The car was acquired by the selling dealer in July 2019, and the carburetor accelerator pump was overhauled in 2020. This Impala SS is offered in Florida with an owner’s manual, refurbishment records, and a clean North Carolina title.
This pillarless hardtop was finished in Ermine White (936) from the factory, and was repainted during the work carried out in 2017. New gaskets have been fitted throughout according to the selling dealer. Brightwork includes a chrome grille, bumpers, and mirrors along with an engine-turned aluminum taillight panel.
Chrome 15″ Cragar S/S wheels are wrapped in 215/70 BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport tires. The body bushings, shocks, and steering components are said to have been replaced as part of the refurbishment.
The cabin has been reupholstered in blue vinyl with a matching dash, door panels, and carpets. The headliner was also replaced along with the window felts, and the mechanical components in each door were reportedly overhauled. Amenities include SS bucket seats with lap belts, roll-down windows, a heater, a period AM radio, and a center console with a floor shifter.
Instrumentation framed by the twin-spoke steering wheel consists of a horizontal 120-mph speedometer, a clock, a fuel gauge, and warning lights. The five-digit odometer shows just over 38k miles, and the selling dealer notes that approximately 400 have been added since completion. Total mileage is unknown.
The 283ci Turbo-Fire V8 has reportedly been bored .030″ over and modified with a Comp XE256 camshaft. Underhood equipment includes an alternator, an aftermarket distributor, and a single-circuit brake master cylinder. The carburetor accelerator pump was overhauled by the selling dealer in March 2020.
