We've had a lot of nice cars for sale over the years, and this one definitely takes the podium. This 1961 Chevrolet Impala “Bubbletop” 2-Door Sport Coupe has been restored and tastefully customized to the highest finish level we've seen. It is a built not bought example with no expense spared. It is the definition of mint.
Our client sourced this vehicle from California in 2006, found painted in non-original black paint. Over the past twelve years, he has rebuilt this car and it is now finished with just 589 miles recorded. Keeping true with the color scheme, he had the car professionally repainted in the original Fawn Beige paint that came on the car from the factory. Everything else has been upgraded from original. Varney's Autmotive of Muskegon, MI professionally built an awesome 409ci V8 motor for this car and hooked it up to a 4-Speed Muncie transmission. It has power steering, four wheel disc brakes, incredible Vintage Air AC system, and has a 3.55 Posi-traction rear end. The thick folder of receipts documents thousands invested in upgraded performance parts from steering and suspension to aluminum heads and a hydraulic camshaft. It has new glass, new leather seats, and a new digital dashboard as well. The car fires on command and for the few miles that have been driven, it is a remarkable driving vehicle.
The car has won many local awards, including a Meguiar's Magnificent Masterpiece Award at Goodguys PPG Nationals. Bottom line is you will not find a cleaner Bubbletop Impala on the market. And you certainly couldn't build this car to this level of perfection at the price we are asking. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
