1966 Chevrolet Impala Restomod Additional Info:

This is an example of what happens when you take a good looking mid 60s car like the Impala, and decide to do a custom update and upgrade, but do it without losing the character and good looks of the original car. While this is definitely a show car with only about 600 miles on the build, it would also be a sweet ride to do some traveling in. What would your desires be with this car? ... The smooth body lines and bulging rear fenders of this car remain true to the original. They are, however, highlighted and accentuated by a two-tone Silver and Charcoal basecoat/clearcoat paint job that divides down the side along the body crease and is dressed with a delicate red pin-stripe. Up front a smoothed and tucked front bumper splits a billet grill that is flanked by quad headlights. The front fenders sweep up and back toward the rear fenders that bulge both up and out to meet a roofline that slopes gracefully down to meet them. The trunk of the car flows down and then over the back edge like a water fall, meeting the triple rectangular taillights that are a '66 only design, just over another smoothed and tucked bumper. The car rolls on Rev Classic dubs tucked nicely up under the fenders. Open the door and you will find that the customizers took a few more liberties than the body men when reimagining the original interior. The door panel is elegantly simple, mirroring the two-tone paint and the red stripe. Custom bucket seats in dark gray leather with pleated centers have custom cut panels sewn together with red stitching and are works of art. A custom steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column with a Chevy bowtie horn button. There is a full custom dash of both carbon fiber and stainless steel that features Dakota gauges and billet vents for the Vintage Air A/C. A carbon console trimmed in dark gray has a DVD/Nav unit at your fingertips along with a Lokar shifter for the automatic transmission and cup holders for both front and back seat passengers. As would be expected, the nice big trunk is trimmed out to match the interior with just as much care as the rest of the car received. When you pop the hood, you will be treated to some nice mechanical candy. A 6.2-liter LS3 V8 with some custom touches is nestled down in an engine bay that has been painted to match the car and detailed out to impress at a show. A cold air intake feeds the carbon look intake. Two-tone valve covers have both Impala in script and an Impala bounding over crossed racing flags on them. Dynatech headers lead to a Magnaflow exhaust system that give the car a sweet sound. Braided flexible lines as well as polished hard lines are used for the A/C system and there is a chromed master cylinder and brake booster. Power runs back through a 470LE 4-speed automatic transmission to a 9" Ford rear end. Ridetech suspension handles getting the power on the ground in the rear as well as the steering duties in the front, and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes make sure that you can get this car hauled back down from speed if you decide to let this Impala run. Come on down and check out this car. You might decide that it is just the car you need to fulfill your wildest desires.
