New! Two Delicious Grills for the 1967 Chevy Impala & Four Grill Kits, Too!

The Chevrolet division of General Motors first used the name Impala for its 1956 General Motors Motorama concept car. The graceful African antelope was used as the car’s logo starting with this show car that incorporated Corvette-like design cues, especially in terms of the vehicle’s front grill. Notice the word grill is missing the ‘e’ at the end of the word. For some reason GM always left the ‘e’ off the end, ala BBQ grill, while other car companies use the more common and generally accepted spelling of grille replete with the ending ‘e’.

1969 Chevy Camaro - Classic Industries' 1969 Camotion

Times are changing in hot-rodding, there's no question about it. Classic Industries, recognizing the increase in the popularity of modern suspension and drivetrain parts in muscle cars and the high-caliber quality of parts now produced by the aftermarket, set out to build a heavily modified, modernized 1969 Camaro.

1953 Chevy 3100: The Classic Industries Shop Truck

Our 1953 Chevy 3100 truck was not a typical restoration project for Classic Industries; it is a completely new vehicle built with original-style GM Truck restoration parts. Although we didn't have to deal with the notorious rust and body rot that makes trouble for most restoration projects, we did pound, bend, and stretch the new sheetmetal to fit into our plans for a custom parts hauler. Rather than hiring a professional shop to build the truck, it was built in-house by employees at Classic Industries, enthusiasts who used the skills they developed while wrenching on their own projects.

1964 Chevy Impala - Classic Industries' '64 Impala Sweet Imotion

Since 1958 GM has built a cross-market following from low-down land yachts to quarter mile winning cutters. The Impala has been a part of that diverse culture sailing through America. 1964 we saw the waning of the “Populuxe” era of jet inspired styling move toward luxury cruise ship size elegance. So, how does a restoration and performance parts supplier modernize those features some 43 years later?

1966 Chevy II / Nova - Classic Industries' '66 Innovation Nova

1968 Chevy Camaro RS - Lady in Red

Gary Lindenmayer found this 1968 Rally Sport Camaro while working one day. He contacted the owner and shortly thereafter, purchased this classic. The car sat in his garage for about a year, and then it was sent to the body shop to have all the bondo removed. It received some fresh sheet metal, to include fenders, valances, and a hood from Classic Industries. He had the car painted and installed a 350 cid, 300 hp motor coupled to a TH350, feeding the torque to a 12-bolt rear end. Then he moved to the interior, practically replacing everything with restoration parts purchased from Classic Industries. His Camaro can been seen cruising the streets of Southern California, at least when he is not working on his next Chevy restoration.
