Cons

its getting old

Cruise Nite — Really just our car show car, even though it could use some cosmetic attention. 327ci engine under the hood, 2 speed transmission and is fun to drive when you want to show somethin off. Not really somethin i would race with but its always nice to cruise every once and a while. Its old, and requires repairs every once in a while. Looks good when your lookin at it from a distance, but it has some minor imperfections than hav accumulated recently.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cruises Like A Dream — Amazingly built car... high level of details from the engine turned dash to the chrome console, this car is high class. Cruised like a dream... like you are floating on a cloud. A real head turner!!

POWER !!!

Cons

Handling especially in the rain

Super Sneaker — This pure white SS convertible was unbelievable. Somebody had dropped a 345 horse Corvette, Muncie 4 speed and 4.11 limited slip differential into this car. It had the Duntov cam with that beautiful whump, whump,whump sound. It still had 283 powerglide emblems on the side so everbody, even Ramblers, wanted to race me...beat them all!!!

1963 — My dad taught me how to drive a stick on this car. Very intimidating considering it was his baby. At the time I started to drive it, it had a 396 under the hood. Now it has a 454 and is my baby.

the 327 would kick anyones ass.... well almost

Cons

My Low-rider — My great grandfather bought this in 1965. It currently has 75,000 original miles. It's in decent shape. needs interior restoration and could use a new paint job and re-chrome the bumpers. Also needs new heads and exhaust and the engine should be overhauled..... well I guess we just need to fully restore it.

Solid...will be here long after I'm gone.

Cons

Some parts are hard to come by, and the restoration process is slow.

An American Classic! — Excellent car. Highly encourage anyone to go for the power brake setup. 400ci s/b with 400turbo tranny makes a great deal of power as well if built right. Not a big fan of the 283ci with the original 2 spd powerglide however it's not bad considering the time it was built.

Triple Carb, Solid Lifter, 4 Speede 409 (apologies To The Beach Boys) — Amazing acceleration - scary handling and stopping. had the 348 tripower triple carb setup on it and it made all sorts of loin-tingling noises when you tromped on it

Very Good! — The 1963 Impala was the high water mark for all of the full-size Chevy's. It offered performance for practically any sized wallet and then some. I just would like to know what happened to the 427 STREET V-8 that seemingly so few people knew about.

Best Looking Car Chevrolet Has Ever Produced — Owned a 63 409 SS for 18 yrs and sold it. Biggest mistake ever made. I am now restoring a 63 Chev SS 409 to what I had before, if not a little bit better. I loved the looks of the car when it first came out and still think it's the best design they ever had. If Chevrolet still had the design people they had back then, Chevrolet would still be producing full size cars. The toy cars they are producing now are not worth the money....
