More About Impala!
Here’s what the Wiki folk have to say about the ’59 Impala! – The “Base V8 was the carryover 283 cu in (4,640 cc), at 185 hp (138 kW) horsepower. Performance fans could select 280 cu in outputs to 290 hp (220 kW) – or turn to the big-block 348 cu in (5,700 cc) V8 up to 315 hp (235 kW). With a V8, the Impala convertible listed at $2,967, but a six-cylinder version saved the customer $118. Impala interiors flaunted their top-of-the-line status, offering front and rear armrests, an electric clock, dual sliding sun visors, and crank-operated front ventipanes. A contoured instrument panel held deep-set gauges residing below hoods to prevent glare. A Flexomatic six-way power seat was a new option, as was “Speedminder” (a device which allowed the driver to set a needle at a specific speed; a buzzer would sound if he exceeded this pre-set speed).” How cool is that? ~;0) Source: Wiki-Chevrolet
So Many Choices!
Back-in-the-day there were lots of model choices. One of me own personal faves were the Estate Wagons – or Station Wagons. Precursor to the crossover SUV they were a hoot! – U could pile in a whole mob or carry a long and crazy load in one of these things. Imagine some of Ur fave classic rides at Wagons! – They’re out there. If U can find ’em! They R very cool and much sought after in rodding circles. Great 4 entertaining! – Haaa!! ~;0) Old Car Ad Source: Old Car Advertising
