Take a look at this, 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top Gets a Chassis & Engine Upgrade!
To the real gearheads, this is the equivalent of car porn, a detailed process of a 1961 Chevy Impala Bubble Top, getting a brand new chassis and a brand new engine, thus turning this car into a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
The guys at Roadster Shop are apparently doing an incredible work since it looks like they’ve checked all the boxes on this build.
After they made the RS SPEC series Chassis they installed an LS engine, and in order to make sure that this Impala stops as good as it goes, they went for RS brakes by Baer.
But there is something that not everybody agrees with. After they installed a brand new interior and a set of Billet Specialties ‘Heritage S’ Wheels, they decided to leave the outside pretty much unchanged.
Now we know some folks love the patina since it is the real, mother nature’s paint job but would you prefer a new splash of paint on this beauty to match the interior?
