It’s a bright red 409 4-speed. This 1961 Chevrolet Impala also sports the desirable Bubble Top body style. 1961 was the first year for the famous 409 engine, and it was a 409 4-speed that the Beach Boys sang about in their classic hit song. This beautiful Impala is indeed the stuff of legend. It was professionally restored to show-quality standards inside and out -- even the trunk. The super clean engine bay is a great showcase for the legendary big block. And the engine shines with a chrome open element air cleaner and silver “W” valve covers. The interior is a study in style and good taste. The red and white upholstery blends with the red carpeting; while beautiful bright work on the seats, dash and door sills provide a pleasing contrast. A really neat detail is the steering wheel. It has the thick, comfortable rim of a modern helm, but is styled so well that it looks like it was born there. Another modern touch is the cupholders in the center armrest. As you know, a ‘60’s car usually had ash trays rather than cupholders. The red and white theme is taken as far as the trunk, with a neat spare tire cover and the bow tie logo embroidered into the front panel. This is a custom with great modern upgrades, including Wilwood power disc brakes, that respects the classic style and heritage of the 1961 Bubble Top Impala.
