New from Virginia, 62 Impala Convertible

Hi, my first Impala. Been sitting in a garage in Arizona for 10 years. Shipped to me a year ago. Just got it on the road last month. Has about 400 new miles on it since getting back on the road. Still can't get over a car that has been sitting for 11 years is now doing 60mph. Runs great
Took this picture this morning.

Is that a 3-Speed on the Column I see?

Sure makes the car extra special.

Factory AC to boot.

Welcome to the site!
That's a really, really great car. Sad that it sat for 10 years but glad to hear you got it out and are enjoying it. She's a beaut'!!




Reminds me of a similar Gold/gold 66 Vert that I bought from an original owner.
