LIMA — Pat Law, of Lima, brought his 1964 Chevy Impala convertible to the Westgate Charity Car Show in June.
Law has owned this car for more than two years. He chose this car because “it’s just the classic Chevy style,” Law said. Law’s Chevy is a low rider, featuring hydraulics which allow him to lower the car at will.
Impala was the best-selling model for Chevy. For 1964, the body was changed to reflect a softer vision. Chevy produced almost 900,000 cars during the ‘64 model year. The ratio of Chevy’s produced in 1964 compared to Ford was 2:1.
The 1964 Chevy Impala is a popular model for low-riders. The roomy trunk might be one of the reasons for this, as you need a big trunk to hold the hydraulic pumps, batteries and wires to make it work.
Whatever the reason, watching the car going up and down at will is a unique experience for most people.
