She’s real fine my 409. Oh yeah, this 1962 Chevrolet Impala convertible with a shining red appearance is the exact kind of car the Beach Boys would love

And because it has a terrific vintage attitude everywhere from the button-top door panels to the actual mileage title, you’re going to love it, too.

Is there a better way to cruise than in a classic red convertible? In fact, it really only gets better when it looks as good as this. Honduras Maroon is a great color for a deep and sophisticated style, and this factory-correct hue has been given a solid investment to have a fantastic glow in the sunshine. The Impala is highly collectible because the wide bright grille up front and the broad six tail light arrangement are both icons of the 60s. And it only helps that the convertible is the rarest of the body styles by far. So you love seeing such a clean example like this where the body lines up nicely and the doors close with confidence. And we love the white insert of the full-length trim because it goes so well with the white convertible top. Diving even deeper into this drop-top means recognizing the little things like the 409 badges on the front fender, SS badging on the rear fender, and classic hubcaps with intricate red, white, and blue spinners for an all-American appearance.

While you’ll like the look of the white top, we bet you won’t mind the color change when you take the roof down to reveal the all-black interior. This dark heart has the right look you want a powerful classic, and they invested in this one nicely. It looks like they gave it a quality restoration where the button-top seats match the door panels for a stylish presentation. And there are nice details like the black convertible boot, Chevy racing flags on the floor mats, and bright trim on the dash. It even has good comfort features like a power top and an upgraded retro-style AM/FM stereo. And you’ll love the driving experience of a true vintage performance machine that gives you a classic thin steering wheel, correct column-mounted tach, and a floor shifter.

Those fender callouts weren’t lying about the 409 cubic-inch V8 filling the engine bay. This period-correct big block looks fantastic with the shiny valve covers and the large shiny air grabber proclaiming its superiority. It has a great classic style everywhere from the generator to the tag on the radiator cap. But as you look closer, good maintenance on the fundamentals and the upgraded Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor remind you this one is made for far more than just show. You’ll love experiencing how it fires up with a great big block tune thanks to the proper dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this big block and its bass-filled soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission.
