In 1959, Chevy decided to sharpen up its premier model - the Impala. They leaned out the body and restyled the fins as horizontal wings. In 1960, they further refined the styling and cleaned up the overall look of its controversial design especially by flattening out the "wings". Power plants ranged from a six, two versions of the 283 small block, and various iterations of the big block 348, including a tri-carb, 280-hp "Super Turbo Thrust" stormer.

This Franklin Mint model was made at a time when they were starting to add features to their models. The engine compartment has wiring and hoses detail. The interior nicely detailed with a great steering wheel and good upholstery. Chrome and exterior trim are excellent with dual antennas and nice wheels. The Roman Red paint is smooth and glossy on this particular model. T were many of these that had very bad paint jobs. Overall, a terrific model for your shelves.

This car is in MINT CONDITION and probably was never displayed . It comes with the Hang Tag and is packed in the Styrofoam Liner and Outer Shipping Box. Paperwork includes the Certificate of Authenticity and Schematic. Don't miss this terrific car. You won't be disappointed.
