1963 Chevrolet Impala on 2040-cars
Belmont, California, United States
1963 Chevy Impala. As you can see by the pics below this car is in very good
condition in & out. Below I will try and describe exactly what I see and know about this car.
Starting with the Outside : 2 year old 2 stage Fire engine red paint job sprayed over a laser straight and rust
free body...shows really well. Lots of new exterior trim including headlight bezels, hood lip molding, hood
emblem, front fender moldings, parking lamp lenses, all taillights, trunk molding, trunk and quarter emblems, and
both corner stainless pieces are new. Both front and rear bumpers were also rechromed and look real nice. The front
grill and side moldings aren't new but still in real nice shape. All glass looks to be the original and still in
great shape with no visible scratches or cracks. All headlights, taillights work as they should.
****Please note*** Exterior Close up pic of front end stainless is just dusty but all new.
Inside : Also redone at the same time the car was painted. All new seat foam and black front and rear seat covers,
new door panels, armrest bases & pads, carpet & Impala floor mats, door sill plates, all pedal covers, e-brake
handle, inner door handles, etc, etc... You get the point. Also, dash & steering wheel were pulled out and totally
refurbished and repainted black. All dash guages & electrical lights work as they should. Car also comes equipped
with a newer Vintage heat & air conditioning unit that works great. There's a nice aftermarket stereo system with
cord connector for your phone to play your downloaded music, eq mounted under dash and a nice sub and amp in a box
in the trunk.
Motor & Transmission : Newer Crate 350-330hp motor

Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America's sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with "unique style." The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for the new body bits, which suggests the conversion shouldn't add too much more weight to the Corvette. Along with a few mechanical tweaks, the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon could breeze past the 200 miles per hour barrier.
Provided that they get enough interest, Callaway estimates they will be able to effect the changes on the Chevrolet for around $15,000, and says the conversion work should be available through its network of dealers. You can check out the brief press release below for more information, or head over to the Callaway site to plunk down a deposit - but before you do, we want to know... do you find this C7 wagon interesting?

A couple weeks ago, we watched a Chevrolet Silverado get dominated by a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty in a fullsize pickup tug-of-war, but in that truck's defense, Chevy's Vortec gas engine was no match for the torquey Cummins turbo diesel. For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a Duramax-powered Silverado HD takes on Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.
Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the Dodge versus Chevy video, with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backwards. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.
It just goes to show, though, that big tires, bolt-on fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect when the Touareg V10 TDI has towed a Boeing 747 in the past?
The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
