63 Impala, with Chevy’s BIG 409 V/8
Nothing says style and grace like a 1963 black Chevy Impala. This car captures the epitome of 1960s classic cars with its smooth, curved look and sleek, aerodynamic body style.
The 1963 Impala was a special car all on its own, featuring as it did rectilinear styling with an engine-turned aluminum rear taillight panel surrounded by a chrome border on SS models. This car had chrome. This car had the look. This car had it all!
The engine choice for the 1963 Impala was similar to that of the 1962, with the small-block 283-and-327-cubic-inch (4.6 and 5.4 L) V8s being the most popular. These cars packed a punch, especially in the two door coupe models.
In 1963 the Sport Sedan featured a new, creased roof line too, which was quite popular. A new “coved” instrument panel with simple indicator lights for hot and cold engine conditions was also featured in the 1963 models. An optional factory tachometer was built into the dashboard too, just above the steering wheel. All of the exciting bells and whistles and changes that were brought forth in 1963 really marked a turning point for the Chevy Impalas.
The Chevy Impala has been a stalwart, ever-present model throughout Chevrolet car manufacturing history. The car has been around, again, and again, and again, and again. It has been in and out of production, but far more in than out. The car is even still being produced today, but the new version looks very, very different from the old one. Nowadays, the Chevrolet Impala is a typical, four door sedan daily driver, but we will never forget the old Impalas from the 60s.
The Chevy Impala first came out in 1958, so by 1963 the car manufacturing companies were able to work out all the kinks and different tricky aspects that went along with this car. True enough, this was an interesting time period for cars, and Chevrolet made an even bigger name for itself in the 1960s with the Impala. Today, we still love the 1963 and are excited to see them when we can, and those who own their own 1963s cherish them.
Most V/8’s were small block 283’s or 327’s. Few were built with the big 409 which packs a PUNCH. This car is one of the few left with the original 409 BIG block.
