In the 1960's, the Chevrolet Impala was America's best-selling car by far. Impala's appeal was far-reaching. It could be a sensible family sedan or spacious wagon, a sporty hardtop, a striking convertible or a storming, big-block Super Sport.
The clean, athletic shape of this 1966 Impala SS Convertible exemplifies GM design excellence in an era when style really mattered. The Super Sport series, available as a hardtop coupe as well as convertible, featured an all-vinyl bucket seat interior, center console and distinctive 'SS' style touches.
This Marina Blue Super Sport, a stunning mix of big-car luxury and big-block muscle, was restored by the current owner. Performance options include the 390 horsepower version of the new-for-1966 427 cubic-inch 'Turbo-Jet' V8, four-speed manual transmission, auxiliary gauge package and Positraction. Luxury options include the rare wood-grain steering wheel, air conditioning, power windows and a console-mounted AM/FM Multiplex stereo.
