Description for Chevrolet Impala 1962

Up for Auction or Buy It Now is a beautiful. completely restored 1962 Impala SS. Restoration was completed in the Fall of 2011. Since the restoration it has been driven less than 100 miles. Engine. Transmission. wheels/tires. and all moving parts have less than 100 miles on them. Maybe a half dozen times a year I take it around town just to keep everything fresh. 100% garaged. I don’t believe it has seen rain. I personally know every inch of this car as I worked on it every weekend for three years. I have over 600 photos of the restoration. If there’s something you’re looking for let me know. SS built in Baltimore. sold in NC. Clear VA title in hand. It’s registered in CT. but CT only requires a bill of sale pre 1980. and if you give a title they will not return a CT title. Please see CT DMV website to verify this for yourself. Initially I was going to do a ground-up. Upon disassembling. it was clear the frame. body. floor boards. etc. were in excellent shape. so I left the body intact. The car was gutted. local sandblast. primed. painted (interior and exterior). Nearly everything has been rebuilt or new. Here’s the specifics:Engine: 72 350. 4 bolt main. New pistons. rings. camshaft. high volume oil pump. cam & crank bushings. Holly 650. full high end gasket set. fuel pressure regulator. fuel pump. double chain cam & crank sprocket. Single point distributor has new points. otherwise original. Chrome valve covers. dipstick & oil pan. I have new Accel plug wires. Alternator & starter original & untouched. Had originally planned to bore . 030 over. but there was very little wear on the motor itself. so it’s a standard rebuild with a mild cam – but nothing too fancy. New motor mounts. Exhaust manifolds have been sand blaster and painted with high temp paint. but looks like they need to be blasted again. I believe the intake is from 1966 – it was also sandblasted. cleaned & high temp Chevy orange applied. Transmission: TH350 fully rebuilt locally w/ new torque convertor. New aluminum transmission lines installed. I have the original 1962 powerglide which you will receive as well. Interior: New carpet. seat foam inserts (buckets only. rear is OEM). Cars Inc. seat covers. custom door panels with the “SS” logo. headliner. coves. light fixtures. visors – basically all new items were designed to look like the original. Everything was removed from the interior including the dash and was sand blaster. primed & painted. Although the floor boards were in good shape. they were replaced & welded into place. I have the chrome which goes around the buckets seats. but it’s not installed. I had planned to get them re-chromed and never got around to doing it. With the exception of the clock. all gages work. All interior metal trim (not including what’s originally chrome. that was left alone) including dash has been sand blaster. primed and painted metallic black. The center console has been painted to match the black metallic interior trim. Exterior: Color. metallic green. similar to Hunter green. Four coats Dupont. four coats Euro clear coat. I still have about a half-gallon left of both paint and clear (2 part) which I will send along. There is very little body filler. There are about two ounces in the driver’s quarter panel. and about six ounces in the drives door in the middle from a dent. The front lip of the hood has a small amount also. The body was in really nice. solid. shape before the rebuild. thus not a lot of filler was needed. Frame was sand blasted (with body still attached) primed and undercoated. All glass is believed to be original. Front and rear bumpers are new aftermarket. Dual exhaust sounds awesome. and have been welded together except where it meets up with the exhaust pipe. New shocks. gas tank & sending unit. Rear coves. back trunk panel. and SS machined swirl side molding are original and they have new hardware attaching them to the vehicle. Has all new window fuzzies & door and window soft seals. All exterior window and door chrome is original and in near mint shape except the top of the drives window itself (the chrome window frame). Headlight assemblies completely disassembled. blasted. primed. painted & new plastic inserts & springs inserted. Photos do not show headlight covers. but I have them and they’re in excellent original condition. Headlights will need to be aligned. New 17” American Racing & Michelin tires purchased from Tirerack. again with less than 100 miles on them. 35 degree SS antenna new aftermarket. Trunk has a new pan welded and sealed and the entire trunk area sand blasted and primed NOT painted. Brake drums are untouched. Brake shoes are all new with new hardware. Two brake master cylinders are rebuilt. two are new. Front brake lines (from cylinder) are new. rear are original. Engine Compartment/under the hood: Fender wells and fire wall sand blasted. primed and painted metallic black. Steering wheel assembly disassembled. cleaned & greased. New power steering hoses. Power steering pump has been untouched. Power steering piston has a very slow o-ring leak. Fan has been sand blasted. primed and painted metallic black as has the fan shroud. New battery. Blower motor was completely disassembled. blasted. primed painted & new brushes added to motor. Hood springs original and strong. Windshield wiper motor and linkage disassembled. sand blasted. primed and painted. Needs wiper blades. Original radiator was flushed. in excellent condition. New heater hoses. Brake master cylinder is new. lines original. I’m sure I have forgotten something. so please ask questions. As you can tell no expense was spared on this restoration. Issues which bug me… I would replace the aluminum transmission lines with stainless. The drives door has a clear coat run under the door handle which could easily be smoothed and buffed. Right on the lip of the trunk near the trunk emblem (original chrome emblem with aftermarket plastic insert – both hood and trunk) it looks like some dirt is under the paint. but you will receive extra paint and clear coat. The driver’s sun visor droops although it has new hardware. Lastly. while this car is awesome it’s being sold as-is. Only offering to the lower 48. Preferred local pickup. but I’m OK selling to anyone but you will be responsible for transport. and the second it leaves my driveway I’m not responsible. I will take tons of photos of the transportation company loading the car for you. I’ve used “crossover transport” to have the car delivered to my home and the cost was fairly reasonable. Best of luck on the bidding. Be sure and send me a photo of you winning car shows!$500 immediate non-refundable deposit required. It’s expected that you will pick up the vehicle within two weeks.
