For Sale: 1961 Chevrolet Impala in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

Even though it's a modern build, this 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top oozes early sixties good vibrations. It doesn't get any better than a 409 under the hood, and this one looks exceptional with period-correct Offenhauser finned aluminum valve covers. An open-element air cleaner assures good airflow, and a set of tube headers and dual exhaust contribute to looks, sound, and performance. It just follows naturally that there's a four-speed manual gearbox behind it. The colors are perfect, with a turquoise and white color scheme inside and out. A clean North Carolina car, the top is the desirable "Bubble Top" design. "Dyno Don" Nicholson started the 409 legend in a Bubble Top Impala at the 1961 NHRA Winternationals. Although Chevrolet featured the Bubble Top other years, many feel the '61 is the best example. The hot rod vibe is accentuated with a column-mounted Sunpro tach, and the popular triple gauge cluster mounted under the dash. Even the Riddler wheels harken back to the Halibrand mags seen on many drag and salt racers back in the day. The car was in the hands of its previous owner since 1995, which isn't surprising. When a build achieves that elusive perfect feel and representation of a storied era, it becomes a keeper. This 1961 409, 4-speed Impala Bubble Top is just that.
