Chevrolet showcased the Impala to the world with a showing at the 1956 General Motors Motorama. After the Corvette’s success, the Impala was their full-sized car that would bear some styling cues from the Vette. This car was so well received, that Chevrolet produced just over 180,000 units representing 15% of their entire production in the debut 1958 model year. The second generation quickly followed in 1959 and ran for just two years. It was this generation that introduced a four-door option as well, such as this 1960 Chevrolet Impala 4 Door Sedan from Nevada that we have for sale. It’s a numbers-matching car with 29,482 miles on the odo and was reportedly sold by Yenko Chevrolet in PA – by the #1 Yenko salesman at the time who would go on to become their GM!
TV buffs will always remember the Impala in terms of the 1967 example driven by Dean Winchester in the show ‘Supernatural’. This presence alone has served to uplift all Sixties Impalas to a new level, which this 1960 example no doubt enjoys. It’s even got the correct color for this association – a striking black exterior paint job. This car sports a flat roof design, and the glasses and chrome are reported to be all-original. It’s reportedly got the Yenko dealer-optioned wheels, and a Yenko car cover is included in the sale too. Climb aboard this Impala’s cabin and the first thing you notice is its red interior. The carpeting is reported to be original. The car sports front and rear bench seats, a Motorola transistor-powered push-button radio, and the gauges look in great condition. The driver grips a two-spoked red and chrome steering wheel whilst the gear shifter is a column-mounted unit.
Chevrolet knew that the Impala had to sport an appropriate powertrain at the time, and offered a choice of larger-displacement in-line sixes, or V8s as the options. This 1960 Chevrolet Impala 4 Door Sedan comes with the middle powertrain option, a 283ci (4.6L) V8, larger than the entry-level 235ci in-line six, but smaller than the biggest 348ci V8. The 283 was said to have put out around 200hp. Drive goes to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission. This car is reported to have had its maintenance items such as belts, hoses, fuel filter and battery always replaced on time.
