The full-size 1960 cars were a streamlined version of the rather rounded 1959 design, with simpler grille and squared up sides. The curved fins were now flattened into a “seagull” spread-wing shape and a missile treatment was featured along the rear quarter panels with white inserts and Impala script.

The Impala remained the top line, with three round rear taillights on each side and a ribbed alloy panel between them. The Impala was available as a four-door Sedan from $2,590, a four-door Hardtop Sport Sedan from $2,662, a two-door Hardtop Sport Coupe from $2,597 and a Convertible from $2,847. The Nomad four-door wagon remained part of the Impala line.

Base engines were still the 135 bhp, 235 cid six and the 185 bhp, 283 cid V-8, but there were five engine options. The 230 bhp four-barrel Super Turbo-Fire 283 V-8 cost and extra $136, the base 250 bhp 348 cid Turbo-Thrust was $188, the 280 bhp Special Turbo-Thrust V-8 with three two-barrel carburetors was $268, the 320 bhp Special Turbo-Thrust 348 V-8 with 11.25:1 compression ratio and four-barrel was $258, and the three two-barrel version of the high compression 348 engine with 335 bhp was $333 extra. The tricky fuel-injected small-block package was dropped.

A three-speed manual gearbox was the base offering and overdrive cost an extra $188. The Powerglide automatic could be added to the six-cylinder engine for an extra $188 and to the V-8 for $199. The Turbo-Glide automatic was available for the V-8 for an additional $210. A four-speed close-ratio manual gearbox was available for $188.
