Turn The Key In This 1969 Chevy Impala

Steven Symes

This is the perfect Sunday cruiser.

You have many choices when it comes to quality classic American steel, but this 1969 Chevrolet Impala has some compelling qualities. If you’re looking for something stylish and comfortable to take on cruises, this car could be for you. Also, if you want a Chevy in clean factory-like condition, that’s what you’ll get.

That long, straight LeMans Blue body is the calling card for a time long passed when life was simpler. GM designers had moved past the large tailfins and slathering of chrome on car exteriors, resulting in this beautifully simple layout. Factory wheels, a black vinyl hardtop, and even the side mirrors are all present. Plus, this a trunk large enough to fit just about anything you could need, this is the perfect car to use on weekend outings.

Slide into the big, beautiful, Blue interior where two bench seats with immaculate upholstery await. With all the factory controls and gauges, plus that massive steering wheel, everything about this car begs you to slow down and savor the moment. Virtually perfect carpeting and door panels indicate this vehicle has been treated with kindness for some time. In fact, the original owner’s manual and Protect-o-Plate are still sitting in the glovebox.

Everyone loves some power, and the 396ci Big Block V8 in this Impala sure has it. A Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission smooths out any wrinkles, providing flawless shifts so you can concentrate on enjoying the ride. All the power heads to a 12-bolt rear end, helping you to put the rubber to the road with confidence.

A few years ago, this Chevrolet went through a frame-off rotisserie restoration, which is why it looks so impeccably good. If you find yourself wanting to learn even more about this car or possibly drive it home, contact Classic Auto Showplace, which is handling the sale.
