Chevy Impala Convertible TV Ad from ’59 or ’60

This TV Ad Video is pretty fuzzy! – TV’s come a long way since back-in-the-day.  It’s a bit hard to see but the popular singer of the day – Dinah Shore is driving a ’60 Chevy Convertible but it appears the cars at the dealer they drive by near the end of the commercial are ’59s. – I’m so confused!! – Haa! ~;0)  Video Source: Jim Grey

Presto – Change-o! Top Up! – Top Down! – – – And the world becomes an open and exciting place.  So many rides seem to open new worlds when U go Top-less!  That Air zipping through Ur hair is hard to beat! – A hum-drum day becomes filled with fresh sights and sounds when U R driving a Rag-Top! – Even light rain can’t dampen Ur spirits when at speed.  Those drops just zip over the windshield carried by the slipstream!

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
