RARE, 348 V8, 700R4 AUTO, PWR STEER, CLEAN IN/OUT, RUNS/DRIVES GR8, NICE CRUISR!
A great coordinated color theme, iconic big block power, and some nice upgrades (like an overdrive transmission) come together to make this 1961 Chevrolet Impala a very cool cruiser.
Yes, this is the iconic and rare bubble top Impala. While all are considered desirable because this was only offered for a few short years, the 1961 coupe is arguably the best of the bunch. That skinny c-pillar and wraparound rear window is truly spectacular. Glossy red is a terrific color to instantly grab attention on a classic coupe. The streak of white running down the side makes this look positively sporty (and if you like it here, just check out the interior!) Of course, no '60s machine would be complete without great bright work. Not only does the investment in new wraparound chrome bumpers look fantastic, but all the intricate trim is complete, too. We especially love it on the full-length sweeping side piece that starts at the headlights, frames the cool white streak, and then continues to the rear where it helps create the distinctive dipping "V" trunk – a feature you could only find in '61.
The pillar-less hardtop setup allows people to get a good view inside, and that's going to make you extra happy. As hinted at before, the interior follows the same red and white color scheme as the exterior to give you the look a fully coordinated classic. You not only get this on the seats, headliner, and door panels, but even the steering wheel follows this factory-correct two-tone interior! Because this is meant to be a true cruiser, you get great upgrades like the detachable arm rest center console with cup holders, a VDO tachometer mounted on the steering column, and a vintage-style AM/FM stereo with digital tuner.
Under the hood is the unmistakable appearance of the first big block from Chevy. The 348 cubic-inch V8 is appropriate for an Impala like this, and so it's great to have this legend here. Plus, we know you love how the orange block, bright valve covers, and matching air topper all just seem to radiate power from inside that dark engine bay. Plus, you even get the extra power of a four-barrel carburetor. This helps deliver a nice rhythmic rumble from the side pipes as the torquey V8 moves this cruising coupe with ease. Speaking of enjoying the drive, the upgrade to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and modern BF Goodrich T/As on American Racing wheels makes this a fine anytime classic.
This icon looks great and drives great, which is exactly why you know it's a great deal. Don't miss out, call today!
