1964 Impala SS - Still in the Family

A few days ago, we received a message from Crossroads Vintage Restorations in Texas regarding a customer's 1964 Impala SS convertible that the shop recently completed. Many parts from the Classic Industries Impala parts catalog were used in this build, and the results are stunning, but there's also a fascinating story behind this car. Russ, the owner, scraped together enough cash to buy it for $700 back when he was sixteen years old. Almost forty years later, it has been fully restored to the beautiful condition seen here.

Either way, you've probably spent a lot of time thinking about the project, and looking forward to its completion. John R. Uba of Illinois told us that his dream was to finish restoring his 1967 Chevy Impala, and he was able to do just that. He wrote, "People said dream on. I say dream come true!"

Many of the classic cars we provide parts for, such as the Camaro, were designed with agility and performance in mind. Others, such as the iconic '57 Bel Air, place a higher emphasis on luxury and comfort as opposed to all-out speed. Some would say the Chevy Impala SS offers a perfect middle ground between a sports car and a cruiser, blending the two ideas into a vehicle that's both elegant and fast. This 1965 Impala SS is a beautiful example of what we mean.
