63' Chevy Impala

Owner: Daniel Rivera

Vehicle: 1963 Chevy Impala Convertible

City/State: Woodbridge, VA

Club: Individuals C.C.

Engine/Drive train: The stock motor was removed and replaced with a '69 Impala 350-c.i.d. with a turbo 350 transmission by Pete from Westside Hydraulics in Buffalo, New York. Every piece, including the aluminum, was sent off to Cambridge Custom Chrome in Cambridge, Ontario and The Pre-Chrome Shop in Fort Erie, Ontario.

Body/Paint: Stacy Cromwell of CT Auto Collision from Brantford, Ontario removed the body from the frame to spray Azure Aqua base coat with Silver Metal flake and House of Kolor clear coat. The bumpers and grill were removed and coated in chrome.

Interior: The interior seats and panels were wrapped by Jeremy Egerland in Teal vinyl to match the exterior. The chroming around the dashboard and gauges was done by Cambridge Custom Chrome. Sound System: A Sony XR C550 head unit was mounted in the glove compartment, keeping the stock radio visible for the OG feel. Boston Acoustic components line the cabin for a clear sound.

Set Up: The Impala was given a full 3/8 inch steel wrap by Jeremy Egerland in Ontario, Canada and he installed a two-pump Hi-Low Elite 2000 Chrome setup using three super-duty Adex dumps. Eight-inch Hi-Low cylinders to the front and twelve-inch Hi-Low cylinders to the rear. The trunk holds eight Interstate batteries and is all controlled by a 5 switch chrome panel mounted on the dash. The stock rear end was shortened to lay the rear end. The upper a-arms are extended and wrapped 3/4 of an inch. Lower control arms & rear trailing arms were wrapped and molded. All suspension components were treated to a healthy dose of chrome for better appeal.

Tires: P155/80-R13 Cooper radials

Wheels: 13 x 7 Dayton wire wheel with Impala knockoff emblems.
