This 1961 Chevrolet Impala has the all-conquering (REAL) 409 CI V-8 engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Fully restored inside and out “she’s real fine, my 409" as the beach boys would say. The intense red exterior is complimented by brilliant chrome, stainless steel and dual rear antennas. Adding to the sharp exterior gleam is it's white trim accents and beautifully straight lines with outstanding fitment. Five spoke sparkling chrome wheels (18" front 20" rear) beautifully show off the Willwood power disc brakes at all four corners. The wheels are wrapped in new radial low profile tires. Driving will be fun and effortless with it's Power steering. The stylish period correct red & white interior is equipped with all of the factory gauges and has two additional gauges for temp piece of mind. Adding to your comfort while cruising this gem is a custom installed Sony AM-FM-CD stereo mounted in the trunk controlled by the small auxiliary remote, mounted at the lower left of the steering wheel. Originally, the 409 was simply supposed to be a bored out version of the Chevrolet 348 CI V-8 engine, but once engineers got to tinkering on it, the production 409 had few parts in common with the old 348. For the 1961 model year, the third-generation Impala debuted with a much more modern form than the car it replaced, although it was still based on Chevrolet’s B-body platform—but the thing that made it special was the availability of the all-new 409. This well sorted and simply striking Impala drives as great as it looks.
