Car description

Featuring a five-year complete professional rotisserie restoration. Includes a car trailer and car capsule. NSRA award winner at a show with 3,500 cars. The car has only been shown in Missouri since the restoration was completed a year and half ago.


  • Minor changes made to improve the look but not taking anything away from the original style and appeal:

  • The originally silver painted center panels of the bumpers are now chrome plated.

  • The anodized grill is chrome plated.

  • Dupont Black tuxedo metallic paint with tons of Dupont clear is loved by all people who see the car sparkle in the sun light and look totally black in the shade. Bottom side, inner fenders and core support is painted the same as the exterior.

  • New glass with gray tint built in, not film.

  • 17" chrome wheels with 235/55R17 tires front and rear for a wide wheel and tire modern stance.

  • For a cleaner look the rocker moldings have been powder coated black minus the top ¼”.

  • All chrome has been replaced or restored.

Engine and compartment:

Hundreds of hours spent smoothing the firewall, bottom of the hood and core support to give the original 348 W motor a look of a diamond in a jewelry box. The black paint on the firewall and hood was color sanded smooth and polished so the motor reflects onto the firewall and hood like mirrors.

  • The unique and original 348 W motor has been completely rebuilt and balanced.

  • 90 hours was spent grinding and polishing the Edelbrock intake and ribbed valve covers. The smoothed exhaust manifolds were ceramic coated and all parts were installed with ARP 12-point stainless bolts.

  • Holley 600 carburetor with electric choke.

  • Electronic ignition module replaces the points inside the original distributor.

  • Amazing Lamar Walden serpentine front runner kit was added.

  • The unattractive original top tank radiator that sticks up above the core support was replaced with an aluminum radiator hidden by a custom made housing and two Spal 13" fans.

  • Wiring is hidden and the AC lines and components are hidden inside the passenger side fender well.

Chassis and drivetrain:

  • The cast iron power guide transmission was replaced with a Chevrolet 350 turbo.

  • Power assist steering was changed to a 605 power steering box conversion kit.

  • Front end linkage has been replaced.

  • Front drums were replaced with a disc brake conversion kit. Rear brakes rebuilt.

  • Differential housing is powder coated and all bearings and seals replaced.

  • Chassis and components have been sand blasted and powder coated.

  • Brake lines and gas lines have been replaced.

  • New front and rear Moog springs.

  • Flanged exhaust system ceramic coated.


  • A lot of time and thought was put into interior. Most custom interiors are made to look modern. I wanted this interior to look vintage using newer Impala parts and clean and less is good. Goal of "Did Impala's come with bucket seats and console”?

  • Smoothed dash with Dakota gauges in the factory bezel.

  • Dash trim hand made to match the console.

  • Custom air vent and radio mounts molded out of steel.

  • Ididit tilt column with 3" smaller vintage steering wheel.

  • Vintage Air with hidden controls mounted inside the console.

  • 1962 Impala seats, powder coated frames and new foam.

  • New reproduction 1964 Impala console.

  • Dove gray Ultra Leather throughout. Perforated inserts in the seats to match the perforated headliner.

  • Rear factory seat frame and foam modified to match the bucket seats.

  • Headliner trim the chrome has been deleted for a cleaner look.

  • Custom fitted and sewn European carpet.

  • Custom clean wiring hand made to match the car.

  • Sound deadening throughout interior and trunk.

  • All interior and trunk panels are made of ABS so they will not warp over time.


  • Unbelievable sound. Clear, loud and a lot of bass controlled by a volume switch mounted inside the console.

  • Lanzar tweeters molded into the A-pillar covers.

  • JL Audio 6 x 9's mounted behind the custom made ABS kick panels.

  • Pioneer head unit with illumination matching the blue dash color lighting.

  • American Bass subwoofer.

  • 3,000 watt Crunch Amp running the subwoofer and 1,500 watt Crunch Amp running the front speakers.

  • Large power cell battery mounted in the trunk for the stereo and starting.

  • Battery tender mounted permanently in the trunk.

Trailer and Car Capsule:

  • The trailer has been repainted with POR black sealant and POR gray paint. Tires are a couple years old with lots of tread left. The Car Capsule was purchased for the Impala and is a year and a half old.
