This 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top has been given all the right time and attention. That way you retain the iconic design, but now you also can enjoy a powerful dual-quad V8, slick modern paint, four-wheel disc brakes, an overdrive transmission, and much more.
This one is truly a stunner from every angle. Chevy knew how to deeply sculpt the front end to make the headlights look they were out in front, and the hood had a crisp line within its full power bulge. In back, the bold dipping "V" of the trunk line was part of a seamless creation from the full-length side trim. And this element was so daring, that Chevy only offered it for one year. And of course, when you want attention everywhere from the boulevard to the car shows, nothing beats that bubble top profile. This one is worth the extra scrutiny because they invested in everything from the chrome to a modern shade of Sapphire Blue Metallic to make the whole car radiate in the sunshine. And while you're looking at the shine, don't forget to check out the 17-inch US Mags alloys they're a hint that there are plenty more upgrades under the skin.
Inside, the triple-tone interior is a classic Impala element. Plus, with it all finished in different shades of blue, this coordinates with the exterior to give the whole hardtop the full appeal of an ocean wave. This one has a terrific fresh feeling of investment, and they got all the details correct, right down to the trim on the door panels. But more than just a proper classic, this has also been upgraded to be a true cruising machine. You see it in the comfortable cloth inserts of the seats, and the retro-style radio that's an AM/FM stereo with digital tuner. Plus, with the Grant three-spoke sports steering wheel, tilt column, auxiliary gauge trio, and B&M floor shifter, you can also tell they made this more of a driver's machine.
When you park this one, you're going to love opening the hood. The 348 cubic-inch V8 has been dressed to impress with a tidy setup, bright block, and plenty of shine on the alternator, upgraded pulleys, and so much more. Plus, underneath the long air topper is a dual set of Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. And while we all know dual-quad performance will make you a street king, this also has been upgraded further with go-fast goodies like the an Edelbrock aluminum intake and headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. But this build was also much more thoughtful than just offering pure power. That's why you have an aluminum radiator to keep it all running cool, even in traffic. And the four-speed automatic transmission has overdrive comfort so you can show this one off near or far. Plus, with power steering, modern Hankook performance tires, and slotted four-wheel disc brakes, this iconic classic really has the best of everything.
Here's the legendary Chevy that has been given all the right investments to make it an amazing all-around stunner. Even the undercarriage photos show you how fresh everything is on this build. Something this complete and desirable is a rare opportunity, so call today!
