1964 Impala Restoration - Persistence Pays Off

Jonathan Pompey, of Compton, California, vividly remembers the first time he laid eyes on this 1964 Impala. It was November of 2004, and he was walking his dog down the street when he spotted it. The Impala was in rough shape, and parked at the curb in front of a house. Right then and there, Jonathan approached the owner and asked to buy it. Unfortunately, it wasn't for sale. However, Jonathan … 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. These days, designers often create a model that stays cosmetically the same for 3 to 5 years, and eventually release small tweaks, or refresh the design with new lights, bumpers, and wheels. Back in the 1950s and '60s, there were many cases where every model year was unique, with huge stylistic changes every … Continue reading »






1959 Impala Convertible - Finned '59

After the groundbreaking success of the 1955-57 "Tri Five" models, Chevrolet had some big shoes to fill in subsequent years. Fortunately, the automaker managed to launch the successful Impala line the very next year, with the 1958 model becoming an instant classic. And rather than resting on its laurels, Chevrolet redesigned the Impala again the very next year, producing a design that hit the peak of the tailfin styling trend … Continue reading »






1962 Impala Wagon - Long-Roof Cruisin'

Speak to any classic car enthusiast, and you'll realize that memories are often a big part of their love for vintage cars. Seeing these vehicles during childhood, taking road trips with the family, and learning to drive—these memories stick with you, and create a personal attachment that's unforgettable.

65 Impala SS - A Clean Slate

John Agres, of Costa Mesa, California, had always wanted a '65 Impala SS. He had long been a fan of the sleek styling of this Chevy coupe, but he wanted to find a completely stock model to start his restoration project—a clean slate, so to speak. Fortunately for John, he came across this '65 about 14 years ago, and knew it was the one. When John bought the car, it … Continue reading »






1965 Impala Wagon - Slick Long Roof

Station wagons, estates, family-haulers, or long-roofs—no matter what you call them, you're probably aware that these vehicles had humble origins. Rather than tearing down the racetrack, station wagons were originally intended to transport large groups in comfort, along with all their belongings. However, some classic station wagons have diverged from this utilitarian design, thanks to modifications applied by their owners. This 1965 Impala wagon belongs to Andy Uphoff, of Costa Mesa, … Continue reading »






1967 Impala SS - Cool Blue Cruiser

We love classic cars, whether they're factory-style restorations, fuel-injected restomod muscle cars, or old-school customs. This gorgeous blue 1967 Impala SS falls into the third category—it's a cool throwback to a different time. This '67 Impala belongs to Chris Rose, of Long Beach, California, and it's absolutely packed with style. You could call it a lowrider, but there are no chrome Daytons or flashy hydraulics to be found on this car. It's definitely modified, but … Continue reading »






1969 Kingswood Wagon - Old-School Family Hauler

Back in 1969, the term "SUV" didn't exist, and even the concept of the minivan was still in its infancy. At that time, if you wanted a vehicle to transport your family and all their belongings in a single vehicle, you looked to the venerable station wagon. These long, low-slung vehicles combined the practicality of a sedan (like the Chevy Impala) with the spaciousness of a full-size truck (like the Chevy Suburban). This … Continue reading »






64 Impala SS - Addicted

It's been said that too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. While this may be true in some cases, we'd certainly disagree when it comes to classic cars. For many of us enthusiasts, there's no such thing as "enough". We continually search for new vehicles to restore, and even when we've accumulated 3 or 4 (or more) ongoing builds, we're always looking for the next cool project to take on. For … Continue reading »
