1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top
A 1961 Chevrolet Impala with the desirable bubble top roof and a cool red-on-red presentation is already very desirable. But when you see all the upgrades, including the modern LS fuel-injected V8, you soon see a very unique and irresistible classic. This gets the look of the icon so right. Shining chrome bumpers, wire wheel covers, and dual aerials give this a cool cruising attitude. And the curved windshield, skinny c-pillar, and wraparound rear glass crate the rare bubble-top hardtop profile that we all love to see. Oh yeah, these Chevys had style. But this one also has its own unique look to go with the '60s-style flair. For example, the side trim still does that full-length spear with a tail that curves upward and wraps around to seamlessly create the artful trunk line. But if you look closer, you'll also notice that this trim carries a heat-painted wood-like insert. It signals to all of us that those who come in for a closer look will see some very cool upgrades. Inside is more of the classic feeling with the right worthwhile updates. You get the classic button-top door panels, glossy exterior-matching dash, and even the factory AM radio is on display. But you'll also notice that the cool period-correct fabric inserts on the seats are part of newer buckets with extra contouring. Plus, the cup holder center console makes this classic full-size Chevy even more comfortable. You'll love grabbing the upgraded wood and chrome Grant GT sports steering wheel. And just below the extra wide speedometer are new and clear auxiliary gauges. So you know there's something special under the hood. This is the kind of coupe that you'll love popping the hood the moment you get to the car show. After all, not many people will be expecting a modern 5.3-liter LS fuel-injected V8 in the tidy engine bay. Then again they're going to have to get you off the road long enough to show this one off, and that's going to be difficult, because this was built with the driver in mind. It has great upgrades for power and fortification, including an LS1 intake, aluminum radiator w/electric fan, and shorty headers. And don't just listen to the sound this creates with the dual exhaust; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see plenty of investment during restoration in a clean setup, and you'll even spot a few upgrades like the reinforced rear trailing arms. This even has front disc brakes and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, so this enhanced Impala is a nice cruiser near or far. Here's an iconic bubble top Chevy with all the right upgrades. You're going to need to hurry if you want to take this one home. Call today!!!
