The interior became the final piece on Manuel’s to-do list for his prized 59. With a molded and painted dash that featured custom digital gauges, shaved switches, chrome bezels that were frenched into the dash, this Impala really set the bar for interior design excellence. Agostino wanted to make sure that he went to the right person to handle the interior, so the car was taken to Henry of Henry’s Customs of Azusa, CA. Henry designed the door panels with designs that flowed from the rear of the car all the way to the kick panels. Henry then wrapped the complete interior in leather. With several hours of stitching and fabricating, Henry tied the interior of the car to the exterior, making a one-of-a-kind look that really separates this Impala from the pack.
The build was long but worth the wait for Agostino, as the car came made its debut at the Pomona Grand National Roadster Show this past January. With this car finally finished, Agostino loves to take this winged beauty on cruises. It’s a sure bet that you can see him at your local shows.
