Lot #1271 1961 CHEVROLET IMPALA CUSTOM 2 DOOR HARDTOP
Lot #1271 - 1961 Impala nicknamed Project Cheemer. The car was chosen as a feature car on Jay Leno's Garage series where Jay declared it "one of the best examples of a custom car that I've ever seen." This truly is a car that has been placed in front of top car judges and collectors, people who have seen the best of the best, and has consistently amazed them with its concept, style and engineering. The fully documented 5-year build was followed by Wheels Magazine. Powered by a BMW V12 engine and driveline, it perfectly blends classic American design with luxury car smoothness and performance. Other features include 4-wheel disc brakes, Air Ride suspension, power steering, power brakes, power windows, air conditioning, full custom interior and more. The look of the car was perfected using custom-machined trim pieces, flush mounted front and rear windows, custom hood, amazing engine bay that perfectly displays the artwork of the V12 power plant, one-off wheels created by Mike Curtis, body color underside with lots of attention to detail, custom two tone Candy Green exterior and even a specially designed Cheemer logo featured throughout the car.
