From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

By the time 1961 rolled around, it was time for a refreshed look for the Impala. After two very successful generations, the new third generation Impala (the fifth generation for the Bel Air line) had to be something fresh and different that would really knock the socks off of prospective buyers! Chevrolet delivered with an all-new design for 1961, and thus the Bubble Top Impala came to be. This 1961 is offered in the killer color combo of red and white, both inside and out. The clean look is both completed and update by a nice set of later Chevy rally wheels with chrome centers and beauty rings. An extremely mild custom, this car sticks largely to its original roots with a few tasteful changes including side exit exhaust and the previously mentioned wheels. Considering that this car is an older restoration, the exterior shows quite well. The interior is in great shape and is the perfect match to the exterior colors. While this is an older restoration, it has been kept up with properly and is ready for some cruising! The aftermarket tachometer is a fun upgrade that has a period correct finish on the casing to help it blend in with the original interior components. Theres even a matching model car included with the sale! Under the hood sits an early 1960s Chevrolet 348 V8. While this would be correct original equipment for this car, it isnt the original engine as the casting numbers come back to 1963-1965 era. It runs well and has a great sound to it! Hooked up to the engine is a GM 700R4 transmission; a convenient and worthwhile upgrade. If youre looking for a classic weekend cruiser that stands out in the crowd, this may just be the car for you! These Bubble Tops are storied classics with a vintage look hard to find anywhere else.
