Hard to top the style of a bubbletop Impala in Tuxedo Black over red. With a restoration that's simply jaw-dropping and those tall 18-inch wheels this 1961 Chevy is a rock star everywhere it goes. A tasteful resto-mod if style is your primary ambition few cars can match this one. You know the deal with black paint and I can assure you that the guys who finished the dramatic bodywork on this Imp knew it too. Every curve is smooth and unbroken the flat panels are exceedingly flat and every edge and corner is crisp and sharp so someone took their time getting this one right. I'm sure there's another substantial chunk of time tied up in hanging all the sheetmetal because gaps are excellent everywhere you look. And then there's the paint-wow! Two-stage urethane looks so deep that you could fall in and drown and as a backdrop for the brilliant trim it's absolutely ideal. More color sanding and then some buffing brings out a radiant shine that shows no distortions or signs of orange peel. Things like the virtually unobtainable front and rear windshields are in great shape the trim was either re-chromed or polished and nobody will ever mistake this Impala for anything else on the road thanks to the iconic triple taillights out back. Even better than all that inky black paint is the dazzling bright red interior which is also this car's original selection. Spectacularly restored using period fabrics and patterns it's both sporty and upscale. Pure 1960s cool covers every surface from the bright trim on the edges of the seat to the two-tone steering wheel to the beautifully restored instrument panel. All the original gauges have been rebuilt and while the column-mounted shifter still suggests a PowerGlide lives underneath it's actually a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive. Neatly integrated A/C provides climate control under all circumstances and those twin gauges underneath the dash manage the Air Ride suspension system. The original AM radio is still in the dash so despite all the upgrades someone still wanted to keep it traditional-or maybe the drive was entertaining enough all by itself. The trunk is spotless and rust-free carrying nothing more than the compressor and polished air tank for the suspension system. Don't worry there's still a small block Chevy V8 under the hood beautifully dressed with lots of shiny bits. Upgrades include a dual reservoir power master cylinder a chrome alternator and the A/C system of course. Then there's the Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop the 350 cubic inch engine and the dual exhaust system that has a wonderful mellow sound and outlets just ahead of the rear wheels. You'll be delighted to see how clean the floors are and with 4-wheel disc brakes this cool bubbletop stops as well as it goes. The suspension is fully rebuilt all the plumbing is new (including a new gas tank) and it goes down the road like a new car. Perhaps its most striking feature are those mammoth wheels 18s up front and 20s in back wearing low-profile General rubber. With more than 40 show trophies behind it this stunning Impala delivers in every way: looks performance and style. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
