1962 was a model year of class and elegance and is represented extremely well when looking at this Impala. The Tuxedo black exterior and red interior is just stunning and really pops. Built originally in Janesville, WI it now sits in our showroom a mere 56 years later. This particular Impala is very clean and has went through a complete frame off restoration. The 409 big block with dual 4 barrel carburetors is an excellent power plant mated behind the manual 4 speed transmission. The red bucket seats, dash and console are just out right beautiful to look at when sitting behind the wheel. This Impala has a very smooth ride and almost floats down the road. The undercarriage was painted a great matte red color that really pops with the gloss frame rails and suspension components. Everything on this car is either new or reconditioned and is absolutely a head turner every where you take it. Come get a taste of 1962 with this Impala!
The 1962 model featured new "C" pillar styling for all models except the 4-door hardtop. Sport Coupe models now featured the "convertible roof" styling, shared with other GM "B" full-size hardtop coupes. This style proved popular. The "overhang" roof style of the sedans was replaced with a wider "C" pillar with wraparound rear window. Engine choices for 1962 included the 348-cubic-inch (5.7 L) V8 discontinued and replaced by the 380 brake horsepower 409-cubic-inch (6.7 L) or 409 bhp 409 cubic inch engine. These engines could only be ordered with a manual shift transmission. The small-block 283 was offered with a two barrel carburetor. The 283 was also enlarged to 327 cubic inches (5.4 L), offered in two versions, one with 250 brake horse power and one with 300 brake horse power, which added more engine choices for small-block fans. The Beach Boys produced a hit single, "409," referring to the Chevrolet, which became an iconic song for these cars. Impalas again featured premium interior appointments, plusher seats could be done by the dealerships on customer request. And more chrome trim outside, including a full-width aluminum-and-chrome panel to house the triple-unit taillight assembly. Super Sport (SS) models featured that panel in a special engine-turned aluminum, which was also used to fill the side moldings, making the SS more distinctive in appearance. The Impala also gained the top trim station wagon body design, in place of the Chevrolet Nomad model. Due to reliability problems, the optional Turboglide automatic transmission was discontinued, leaving Powerglide the only automatic transmission available until 1965. A new radio was optional.
