The 1960 Chevrolet Impala

The Impala was Chevrolet's top-of-the-line series. For 1960, the Impala was offered in four body styles; four-door sedan, Sport Sedan (four-door hardtop), Sport Coupe (two-door hardtop), and Convertible.


Impala interiors featured a Corvette-inspired instrument panel and sports-type steering wheel, and featured waffle pattern embossed bright aluminum trim along the lower half of the dash. Standard equipment on Impalas was an electric clock, cigarette lighter, bright aluminum capped control knobs and a parking brake alarm. Bright aluminum window garnish mouldings were also standard equipment on all Impala models except the Convertible. The front seats were also capped with bright aluminum trim on both sides. The seating fabric was a cloth houndstooth pattern (this was vinyl on Convertibles) accented with color coordinated leather-grain vinyl. The door panels were accented with the vinyl houndstooth pattern, the same used on the Convertible seats. Sport Coupe and Convertibles both featured a built-in rear speaker that was located in the center of the rear backrest. It was decorated with an Impala crossed flags logo. The arm rests featured an ashtray and chromed plastic safety reflectors in their ends. Impala's all featured "wall to wall" carpeting.


Impalas also were equipped with deluxe exterior trim treatment, features bright aluminum spears on the leading edge of the front fenders, bordered on the top and bottom by chromed corporal stripes. The quarter panel of the Impala featured dual chrome strips, lead by a large jet airplane ornament. The rear end of Impalas featured three tail lights for each side, the center light being a backup light. They were inset in a bright aluminum panel.
