Classic Car Overview
1961 Chevrolet Impala $15,995
This pillarless hardtop sedan is a bit of a rarity. They made more hardtop coupes than these, and thats because they were more expensive than any of the comparable coupes or sedans in the lineup especially in range-topping Impala trim. That premium attitude is seen on the professional application of the white paint that retains a nice clearcoat gloss in the sunshine. We love all the brightwork on these from the wraparound chrome bumpers to the full-length side spear with red accent. In the rear is one of the most intricate forms ever put to sheetmetal. The dipping V is something so daring you could only get it in 61. Plus, there are some great new eye-catching additions like the blue dot headlights and 14-inch wire wheels. The final step to making this a truly distinguished classic are the iconic details like the gunsight fender ornaments, dual aerials, and triple light pods in the rear.
The pillarless hardtop has added appeal because people get a better look at the interior. And its really cool how the accent red on the outside sets up the color inside. Even the white makes a re-appearance as the accent color on everything from the doors to the Hawaiian-themed seat covers. You can carry plenty of family and friends in full-sized comfort, but in this Impala, you are the true Big Kahuna. Thats because there are upgrades just for you, like the three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel, auxiliary gauge trio, and B&M floor shifter.
The small block wasnt up to the legendary 350 displacement in 1961, but it fits in just as easily as the 283 did. The bright air topper and valve covers add some nice flash, and below that is all the right substance. You have an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Summit performance intake. Plus, the Hedman headers add even more power as well as extra growl to the dual exhaust. Theres even an aluminum radiator with electric fan to keep everything reliably cool. Add in the other great driving features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, upgraded front disc brakes, and recently serviced front end with new tie rods, springs, and other essential to keep this feeling tight on the road.
The right features and a great V8 sound make this a custom cruiser with true go-anywhere appeal. Its rarity and price make it the reason why you need to hurry for this deal. Call today!!!
