Flashy muscle cars are fun, and polished customs are nice, but, for some folks, there's nothing better than a well-done cruiser. No gimmicks, no frills and no drama; just sun and fun -- LOTS of fun. This exceptionally clean Impala is a classy stunner that mixes 396 cubic inches of big block power with a 3-speed drivetrain, comprehensive restoration and tasteful aesthetics. And if you're looking for a cool classic that's road ready, show-ready and just plain battle-ready, it's the perfect way to cruise the strip and turn some heads!
The beneficiary of a comprehensive, frame-off restoration, this carefully finished convertible was re- premiered in correct Regal Red 2-stage that successfully walks the line between coveted Chevy cruisers and legendary Chevy muscle cars. At the front of its well-maintained panels, a familiar stainless grille hangs a tasteful “Chevrolet IMPALA SS” badge between bright T3 headlights, crisp parking lamps and a mirrored bumper that's finished with correct guards. Behind that grille, a stainless-trimmed hood flows to factory-tint glass, which rides under stainless wipers, stainless frames and correct vinyl. At the sides of that hood, a ridged profile, founded on thin wheel liners and small rocker guards, centers traditional door handles and a polished bowtie mirror behind black speed spears, stylish cross-flags and flowing “Super Sport” badges. And at the back of that profile, fresh taillights, a modernist Chevrolet crest and black trunk trim split the difference between a correct antenna, a second “Chevrolet IMPALA SS” badge and a second mirrored bumper that's finished with small reverse lamps.
This stylish Super Sport is motivated by a correct, 396 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that, according to the factory, creates a solid 325 horsepower. At the top of that hot mill, a painted, single-snorkel air cleaner funnels oxygen in to a familiar Quadrajet 4-barrel, which feeds through fresh stainless fuel lines. That carb fills a cast iron intake, which is framed by factory Chevy heads and Chevy Orange valve covers. Those heads force spent gases in to correct, cast iron exhaust manifolds which, thanks to 2.5-inch, true-dual pipes, create a deep and sinister roar. That roar is the product of sparks sequenced from a traditional points distributor to fresh Belden plug wires. Those sparks are generated by pliable V-belts, which spin a rebuilt alternator opposite a Frigidaire AC compressor. And this B-Body's entire engine compartment, from its Chevy Orange block and convincing reproduction battery to its Satin Black fenders and correct Harrison radiator, is decaled, detailed, and ready to roll.
When the big block jumps to life, it spins torque through a correct, Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed, which twists power to a tough 12-bolt axle. That pumpkin pushes a 4-link rear-half, which features Gabriel Red Ryder shocks. Opposite those shocks, a factory front-clip frames factory power steering. At the corners, power-assisted drums provide solid, consistent stops. Aluminized exhaust pipes shuttle spent gases through brash turbo mufflers. And everything rolls on painted steelies, which spin 215/75R14 Cornell whitewalls around ornate Super Sport wheel covers.
Decked in correct Ivory vinyl, this Impala's delightfully '60s interior is conservative and comforting. Seating is provided by SS-spec buckets, which front a factory-spec bench. At the front of those mitts, a padded dash founds factory telemetry and factory air conditioning over a correct Delco AM/FM radio. At the center of the car, a chrome-trimmed console anchors a polished shifter behind stylish accessory gauges. In front of the driver, a color-keyed steering wheel laps a familiar Impala centerpiece. And power abounds in the cockpit as well, with a power top joining a power driver's seat and a full suite of power windows.

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
