I am pleased to present this beautiful California black plate 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible. This car has had a full frame-on restoration and the paint is smooth and wet looking. Interior is in incredible condition and the Sony Xplod aftermarket sound system makes the driving experience with the power convertible top down second to none. This is an excellent driving car and the 396/325hp big block pushes the car smoothly down the road. It's believed this Car is an original California 2-owner black plate car with factory air conditioning.
In the 1960's, the Chevrolet Impala was America's best-selling car by far. Impala's appeal was far-reaching. It could be a sensible family sedan or spacious wagon, a sporty hardtop, a striking convertible or a storming, big-block Super Sport. In 1966, the Impala SS was face-lifted with a revised grille and new rectangular taillights that replaced the triple round units. A chrome beltline strip shared with regular Impalas was added in response to complaints about door dings on the clean-lined 1965s. Inside were new Strato bucket seats with thinner and higher seatbacks, and a center console with an optional gauge package available.
What is a "California Black Plate Car?"
What it means is that the car STILL bears it's original black and yellow California license plate and thus adds value to the car.
This license plate series began in 1963 (when ALL vehicles were issued the new plates) and ended in 1969. A black plate on the car AND on the title signifies that the car has been in California continuously since that plate was issued, which would be 1969 at the latest, ZZZ 999 being the last plate issued.
