The A-pillars that flank the windshield have a distinct curvature, giving the impression that the front of the greenhouse is bowed outward.     Then there's the large back glass, which incorporates thin and heavily-sloped C-pillars. On the sides of the car, the frameless … Continue reading »

1961 Impala - Frame-Off Restoration

Back in the late '50s and early '60s, cars didn't necessarily have "generational" styling like they do today.
