Description from the owner:
“You are viewing a STUNNING AWARD WINNING 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top. This has been a full body off restoration that was completed in 2017. The original x-member frame was boxed and powder coated. All four wheels are hydro boost disc brakes. The rear end is a 4:11 posi-traction, hooked up to tubular control arms with 1 1/2″ sway bar. The front is coil over shocks with tubular control arms and 1 1/2″ sway bar. The motor is a 348, completely rebuilt and balanced by the premier engine builder, Dave Pluebell. This is hooked to a Tremac 5 speed with hydraulic clutch. It has a six two-barrel manifold for a very striking effect, but it runs only on the two center carbs for smooth drivability. All of the exhaust is handmade with mandrel bends and black ceramic coat. The body is painted PPG 2-stage, which really shows the laser straight body. All the aluminum trim and the grille have been anodized. Both front and rear bumpers are California one piece.
The interior has been done in the original red/white pattern, this includes the 1962 bucket seats that replaced the original bench seat. In addition, there is a glovebox console with USB and a 12-volt outlet. Vintage air conditioning blows ice cold. The wheels are 18″ one-piece cast to match the original style rally wheels. Tach is not working. Check out the reflection under the hood, it’s finished out as smooth as the outside. The same has been done to the underside trunklid. You won’t find a nicer or more detailed 61 Bubble Top than this.”
This car is absolutely gorgeous and straight as can be. Only approx. 1750 miles on build.
