1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible - Lowrider Magazine
Certain makes and models define classic lowrider ethos, and this ’60 convertible from South Side car club is a great example. Shot the day before it was shipped to Japan, this classic Impala exemplifies what it takes to fly a South Side plaque. The club prides themselves on having some of the cleanest Bel-Airs and Impalas in the lowrider scene and on the Boulevards. Repping South Side means a few things; your ride must be era correct, full of hard to find accessories and ready to hit the streets of L.A. at a moments notice! More specifically, your ride must be a Chevy made between the years of 1956 and 1965—they don’t allow any other makes or models in for membership! In the lowrider scene, the ’50s and ’60s are seen as Chevy’s best years, and many consider the ’60 Impala to have the best of both decades, since it carried over some of the ’59s radical bodylines but also incorporated some of the Impalas signature touches, such as the round taillights that were made famous in the ’60s models. The fins were also toned down in the ’60 model before being eliminated the following year.
