This outstanding example comes to us from the former owner of 9 years who enjoyed this Impala for many years using the original 348ci V8, PowerGlide, and factory air conditioning. As with many owners, there comes a time to enhance the driving pleasure, and in 2011, he handed his Los Angeles, CA built Impala over to Tommy Kuntz who took the liberty of restoring it completely from the frame up. Utilizing the absolutely solid, rust free chassis and body, it was stripped of its original drivetrain, all exterior moldings & trim, weather stripping and prepped professionally for a complete base coat/clear coat respray. The results are nothing short of incredible! The entire suspension was rebuilt with all new bushings, ball joints, tie rods, end links, addition of front & rear sway bars, new shocks, and rear springs. The engine fuel system was replaced with new stainless steel gas tank, fuel sender, filter, fuel pump, and all lines. The brakes were completed replaced with CPP (Classic Performance Products) 4-wheel disc brakes using cross-drilled & slotted rotors, braided stainless steel brake lines, and all new e-brake cables.
Under the hood, it was decided to transplant a new crate 350ci V8 with the Holley Avenger EFI engine management system and Edelbrock aluminum intake. Additional goodies include ceramic coated headers, true dual exhaust utilizing only resonated mufflers, new aluminum radiator with tranny cooler, HD 7-blade fan clutch & shroud CRV Performance high-torque starter, modern alternator charging system, updated R134a a/c system, polished aluminum finned valve covers, Cadillac style air cleaner with some Von Dutch pin-stripping, along with all new hoses, clamps, fluids, etc. Inside, you will find a completely fresh interior with all new carpet, new seat upholstery & padding, all new weather stripping, carpeted floor mats, all new wiring through the entire vehicle, with everything fully sorted and functional! With completion in approximately 2012, he drove and enjoyed this stellar new ride for the next 5 years, adding approximately 2,000 miles to the odometer. In continues to remain virtually new and fresh from restoration in every sense. Take advantage of the time and money spent on this Impala by ceasing the opportunity today! Trying to find another with this level of restoration, solid body & chassis characteristics, and unbelievable turnkey drive qualities will be no easy task!
