This Top Award winning classic '61 Bubbletop Chevrolet has many outstanding custom design features throughout the entire car. From the highly detailed Art Morrison frame, to the new custom designed laser waterjet-cut front grille work and main dashboard inserts. There are many other unique features throughout, like the gorgeous fabricated underhood metal designs for the massive 572/700hp engine compartment and firewall. The car has new gorgeous main body lines. Showing custom shaved and frenched areas, along with beautiful artistically reshaped sharpened body lines, a look that is truly unmatched. Also, not to miss the custom designed front and rear lower valence panels and the frenched 6 rear deck Impala trademark taillights. Side trim work is custom formed for an all new design look. All of these features showing top world class craftsmanship and design. All chrome work, glass work and bright work show the very best in top restoration quality. Air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power trunk release, hideaway underdash stereo system with remote, 3-speed Turbo automatic, 9" Ford rear end, Boyd Coddington 18" wheels front and 20" rear. From the gorgeous one-off Tangerine Metallic and Alabaster paint, to the finest detailed interior leather stitching, this is one of the highest quality restorations of a Bubbletop classic Chevrolet.
