1966 Chevrolet Impala SS 427
|Just Reduced in time for Spring Driving Season!!|
Normally the 1966 Impala isn’t the first car that comes to mind when we think of the ‘60s muscle cars, but this 427-4-speed caused us to change our thinking. This SS will easily run with the GTOs, the 442s and the Mopars, and likely embarrass most of them!
This Impala has been treated to a very nice respray in its original Bolero Red finish. The paint looks as new without chips, dents or orange peel. The red exterior is complemented by its black vinyl interior in very good condition. As a true factory Super Sport, this car has bucket seats that add to its muscle car aura. All of the glass is in good condition and function as they should. The chrome is in excellent condition.
Also included in this sale is the ORIGINAL build sheet found in the car!!
As nice as this car looks from the outside, it is the street-pounding 427 that gets your blood pumping and changes what had been a very quick, original 396-equipped car into a super-fast screamer! This 427 was bored .30 over, balanced and blueprinted, steel crankshaft, roller rockers, custom grind cam, Eagle H beam rods, Pete Jackson timing gears, aluminum flywheel and 9.87 to 1 compression ratio. The engine dynos at 424 hp with the flowed Edelbrock Performer RPM 6055 aluminum heads and a Barry Grant Demon 850 carb (we have the dyno sheets). The engine breathes through custom ceramic coated headers and a mandrel bent Edelbrock 304 3” stainless exhaust system with dual side outlet SS oval tips.
All this power drives through a brand new HD clutch assembly, completely rebuilt factory Muncie M-21 4-speed manual transmission (GM 3851325), new Hurst Super Shifter and a 12 bolt Eaton posi-traction rear end with Moser racing axles. The current rear axle ratio is 4:10 although this could be readily changed to a 3:73 were the new owner so inclined. Finally, getting the 427’s power to the pavement, this Impala has four P255/60 R15 Goodyear Eagle GT II tires mounted on chrome corvette rally wheels that look as new.
Suspension and steering are excellent with the new steering box, SSM suspension including new coil springs, air bags and air shocks in the rear, heavy duty front and rear sway bars and rear panhard bar.
Stopping the car is handled by power disk brakes front AND rear with all new brake lines. They bring the Impala to a dead stop without shudder or pull. The gauges all work as does the safety equipment (lights, wipers, horn, etc.) with the exception of the back-up lights and license light. Also, the original clock will need rebuilding, the heater blower needs to be checked out as to why it’s not coming on and the antenna needs to be installed before one can assess the status of the radio.
This Impala SS will bring a grin to the face of even the most seasoned driver every time you start it! Everything about this car is right: a 427 engine, 4-speed transmission and great paint that all combine for a wild driving experience!! And, best of all: for the price of a new Honda! This is the kind of car that only comes along rarely because their owners know what they have and don’t want to share. Don’t miss it!
