Wheels In the Grass

I had to stop when I saw this white 1963 Chevy Impala sport coupe (still completely recognizable even without the rear bumper or taillights) sitting outside a Niagara Falls repair shop the other day. This could have been my Grandpa Mac’s car! He traded in a white 1959 Impala two-door hardtop for it 48 years ago; in 1966 the ’63 was traded for another two-door Impala in light green. The ’63 Impala two-door had a list price of $2,669 for the six-cylinder model (ugh!) or for just another 107 bucks you could have had the 283 V-8 like Grandpa had. And many did. Chevy sold over a million-and-a-quarter full-sized cars for 1963. I’ll everyone is related to at least one person who owned one!
