This 1961 Chev Bubble Top Impala was originally a Nevada car.  It was restored and built by a machinist in Oregon over a four year period and was to be his “forever car”.  He completed it just in time for the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour and then returned to participate again in the 2011 tour.  Once I heard it had proven itself on two occasions, I had to have the car.

I bought it in June of 2014 and had TFX International  Car Haulers deliver it to Sylvan Lake.  This made for a memorable day to say the least!

The car steers and rides like an old Chevy should. even with the 20 and 22 inch rubber. The complete drive line has been updated to a modern LT1 GM fuel injected engine with overdrive automatic, along with cruise control and air conditioning.   All body panels are original to the car, making for a better fit and finish.
