Have you ever closed your eyes and thought about what it'd be like to cruise around in the nicest '62 Impala Convertible to ever run the roads? Well think no more. The moment you lay your eyes on this Alloway built 1962 Impala Convertible you won't be able to think of anything else. This is a rare opportunity to own one of the best built vehicles on the road today!! This is a Sema Feature Car, Goodguys Builder Choice winner, and a top 25 Shades of the past car. There's no denying the quality of craftsmanship that went into building this beauty. When you walk around it you will see that all the body panels, doors, hood, and trunk have a near perfect fit along with all the gaps being even and symmetrical. The body lines on this Chevy are some of the best designed and as you can see they flow beautifully from the front to the back. The body is covered in the Brilliant Silver base coat clear coat paint that has been buffed and polished to a mirror finish that's slick as a ribbon. It's accented by all that iconic Chrome and Stainless of the '60's and every piece is like new. Also, you'll notice it has the black convertible top that is Power. To finish off the exterior it's sitting on a set of 1 Off Wheels built for Mr. Alloway by Billet Specialties. They are a solid 1-piece Aluminum Wheel with 17x7's on the front and 20x10's on the rear along with Red Line Tires.
Next, we will look at the interior of this Impala. On the inside it has a Pro Auto Custom interior done by Steve Holcomb. This Lipstick Red Leather interior combination is the perfect complement to the brilliant silver exterior paint scheme. The custom done seats and door panels are a perfect blend of the classic style's of the '60s and modern inspiration. You'll also notice the Corvette styled floor shifter for the five-speed trans. Looking at the dash, you'll see the white face gauges from Classic Instruments, and yes it has the knee knocker tach as well. The sound system has been upgraded as well and the controls are in the console with the deck unit hidden in the trunk. Of course, this Impala also comes with Vintage AC that operates off the factory controls location. In the trunk it has the matching Daytona Weave carpet with custom panels that keeps everything neat and clean.
Finally, we will get to the heartbeat of this Chevy. Under the hood it features a Keasler Built 502 engine that's set up with aluminum heads and custom W Valve covers with the 409 Callouts. For injection you have an MSD Atomic EFI and of course the “409” air cleaner. The engine bay is a masterpiece of its own featuring a Vintage Air Front Runner along with a Steve Long Radiator and Cooling Components fan. Along with AC you also have Wilwood Four Wheel Power Disc Brakes and Power Rack and Pinon Steering. For exhaust it has Sanderson Headers with Barrillaro Speed exhaust and Flow Master Mufflers. When you look under this '62 you're going to fall in love all over again. It features an Art Morrison independent front clip and the X frame that's far from standard GM Issue. This Impala has four corner coil overs, Tubular controls arms, and a number of custom fabrications from Alloways Rod Shop. This 502 engine puts power to the ground via the Five Speed Trans, Custom Driveshaft, and the Currie 9” with 4.11 gears.
