Named after a type of South African antelope, the Impala is one of the longest surviving models to emanate from the giant General Motors stable and defined by the company's Ed Cole as a 'prestige car within the reach of the average American citizen'. The name first appeared on a 1956 show car, following which the brand was developed under the watchful eye of Harley Earl and launched to an admiring public in 1957. The LHD example offered is a 1963 Convertible that's been in the current ownership since 1995, and the subject of an extensive eight year chassis-up restoration. Presented in pristine Primrose Yellow, it features a new Black hood and interior retrimmed in Grey, a fresh stock engine, overhauled brakes and new tyres and suspension bushes. The Chevy comes complete with US title, photos of the restoration and workshop manuals, and is considered by the vendor to be 'very good' in all major aspects.
PLEASE NOTE: The Estimate on this Lot is now £16,000 - 20,000.
