She’s real fine: ’63 Chevy Impala 409, 4-Speed
Do you think anyone will be moved to write a song about a Toyota Prius? A Prius just doesn’t stir up the same emotion as cars from the 50s and 60s. “Hey little Cobra”, “Little Red Corvette”, “GTO” and of course The Beach Boys’ “409” were songs inspired by cars that were exciting to look at, listen to, drive and be seen in. Today’s featured car is just stunning and since we are considered Ford guys by many, that says a lot. Everything about it screams “buy me and I will make you whole.” What else would you want in a car? It’s a convertible, has a 4-speed, a great motor, fully restored and vetted by numerous shows with awards. It is an unusual color, Twilight Turquoise, that is soft and pleasing to the eye. Wow! There were 2, 409 engines available in ’62 and the seller doesn’t specify which one is in this car. The most common 409 puts out 380hp and that is plenty. The Sports Car Market Price Guide adds 30% to Impala Convertibles with a 409 so this one could hit the high $40s easy.
