Its hard to beat the look of a black on red bubble top! This car will draw a crowd wherever it goes. 61s have been steadily rising in value and popularity, and an example like this is sure to appreciate.
This is a nut and bolt restoration and has just had a ton of money invested and has had lots of upgrades. It has powersteering, disc brakes, air ride, upgraded drivetrain, and is a blast to drive.
This is a factory black on red car.
This Impala has a newly installed air ride suspension that is fully adjustable. The air ride consist of all high quality components from Ridetech, Viair, SMC, and Air Lift. This is a bolt on setup, and could be returned to stock suspension later on if someone wanted to do so.

The transmission is a fresh TH350 turbo that was built for the car. Is has a mild shift kit and shifts nice and firm. It was detailed and painted as well prior to being installed in the car. The Driveshaft was just done and has a new yolk and new u joint.
The car was painted Tuxedo black and is super slick! It was done in base / clear and has been wet sanded and buffed to a mirror like finish. No blistering, bubbling, or orange peal. It is straight downthe sides. The doors open and close nicely.
The interior on the car has all been replaced and looks great!
The underside of the car is very nicely detailed. The floors were painted in red oxide primer similar to what was used in the factory. The frame and rear end was painted gloss.black. All the front suspension and steering parts were stripped and painted. The fuel tank and sending unit are new.
The car has nice trim and bright work. It has new door handels, fender ornaments, hood letters, trunk emblem, grill emblem, crossflags, antenna, side moldings, and more.
The glass and window frames are original and very nice for their age.
