Owner: Jerome Marquez
Vehicle: 1968 Chevy Impala
City/State: Las Vegas, NV
Car Club: Street Players
Engine: Along with previous owner Lance Charles, Jerome installed a ’98 Vortec engine with fuel injection.
Body/Paint: Buying the car in decent shape, Jerome took the ’68 to Guero’s Customs in Las Vegas, who laid the Teal DuPont candy paint, while Robert Jasso of No Limit took on the task of patterning out the top. Gary Jensen finished it off by striping it.
Interior: J&S Upholstery out of Henderson, NV stitched up the gray velour interior. The dash was painted to match the car, and a color bar and custom steering wheel were added to finish up the interior.
Setup: Jerome and Robert Jasso reinforced and juiced the car before Jerome bought it, but he still had to update the setup by hard lining the two-pump Black Magic set up.
Sound System: The Alpine head unit that Jerome installed pushes one amp and two subwoofers.
Tires: 175/70R14 Hercules.
Wheels: 14x6 from Pop’s Shops.
