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 »






1960 Impala - Taking Flight

The late 1950s and early 1960s are often referred to as the era of the tail fin. These aircraft-inspired accents could be found on many cars from this time period, and few of those applications are more recognizable than the 1960 Chevy Impala. A winglike ridge lines each side of the bodywork, culminating in a squared-off tip at each corner. It was perfect for a society that had fallen in love with … Continue reading »






58 Impala - The Origin of a Classic

There's no question that the iconic 1955-57 "Tri Five" Chevy models were a tough act to follow. Even today, they're known as some of the most famous and popular classic cars of all time. So, when it came time to retire the Tri Five and develop a new design for 1958, what was Chevrolet to do? Well, true to form, they created a model that would go on to become … Continue reading »






62 Impala SS - Reborn

"Lost and forgotten" -- that's the condition this '62 Impala SS was in when Flavio Robles found it three years ago. It's always a pity to see a classic car left to rust and decay, so Flavio took it upon himself to give this old Chevy a second chance. Three years later, the Impala has been restored to immaculate factory condition, and you'd never know about its humble beginnings unless he told … Continue reading »






1961 Impala - Red-Hot Bubble Top

The term "bubble top" has become a catch phrase in the Impala restoration community, and we often hear people asking what it really means. Take one look at the rounded roof of this 1961 Impala coupe, and you'll start to understand. The curved glass, smooth lines, and lack of B-pillars cause this car's roof to appear similar to a bubble, hence the name. The term became especially important one year later in … Continue reading »






'64 Impala SS - The Gold Standard

The '64 Impala is what a student of literature might call an archetype. This word is defined as "the original pattern or model of after which all others are based". Essentially, an archetype is something that perfectly exemplifies a certain purpose or style. So, what exactly does the '64 Impala exemplify? Lowriding. The '64 Impala has become so closely linked with lowrider culture, it's almost hard to see the car built any other way. … Continue reading »
