This vehicle is truly one of a kind and one of the cleanest museum condition 61 Impalas you could find. Buy with confidence!!Up for sale is a beautiful 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS. This vehicle first started its life out being built in St. Louis Missouri. From there the vehicle was then shipped out to Minneola Texas where the first owner had purchased the vehicle. From Texas the car was then moved to California to begin its life with the second owner who owned the vehicle up until 2013 when the 3rd owner had purchased the vehicle and brought it up to Buffalo NY to begin his 5-year project. In the new owners' possession, the vehicle had undergone an entire transformation, starting with the body of the vehicle where it was stripped completely down to bare metal removing all trim and glass in the process. The car was then repainted back into the original color code of Roman red. Following the body all trim was then reworked to its original form removing all dents or any imperfection it may have had and rechromed to give it a new look. Under the hood of this vehicle is a 348 cubic inch tri power Chevy, in 2014 the owner had removed the motor and stripped it completely reusing nothing but the block itself. New pistons connecting rods, and crank were put into original block all after it was bored .40 over. This car has a borg Werner t-10 4 speed transmission, which was completely rebuilt during the same period as the motor. Transmission rebuild included a new clutch, flywheel, and pressure plate. After these were completed, the owner drove the vehicle for a few years before going back and adding some finishing touches to this build. In 2020 the tri power carbs were sent all the way to Seattle Washington to have a rebuild completed. While waiting on the carbs to be built a new gm posi unit was placed into the car sporting a 3.70 gear ratio. The original shifter was swapped out and fitted with a new hurst shifter as well as linkage being replaced in the process. In 2022 the rear drums were rebuilt and front were swapped out to power disc brakes to stop the newly fitted horsepower. The interior had undergone a complete transformation putting in new carpet, and all seats were reupholstered including the seat foam. There wasn't an inch of this vehicle that hasn't been brought to showroom condition by the owner and the photos will really show that. Every step of this process was documented in a roughly 30-page binder full of photos of every step of the way. All service receipts have been kept with this vehicle throughout its life with a binder separated by each individual owner since delivery in 1961. You will not find a better documented vehicle.
