When it comes to nearly universal appeal, few cars bring it quite like a big Chevy. While a lot of classics place an emphasis on speed, style or some other singular piece of the puzzle, retro full-sizers continue to thrive as a malleable definition of everything to everyone. With almost all the dials turned past 11, this tailored Impala resto-mod is a car that'll fulfill the needs of virtually any enthusiast. And, from its stout LS2 power and smooth 4L65E drivetrain to its lowered suspension and custom upholstery, pretty much any spectator with a pulse can find something to admire!

TAN: FROM TAME TO TOUGH

An authentic Impala Super Sport that was the subject of high quality restoration, this sweet cruiser is definitely built for keeps. From casual glances to long looks, the car exudes a sense of quality that comes from countless hours of work and serious credit card bills. With straight panels and impressive panel fitment, its body sets the standard for what to expect from the rest of the build. There are no notable modifications, aside from creamy 2-stage that would've been unimaginable in the mass-production world in 1965. And overall, this slick resto-mod is right at home turning heads on the road OR claiming trophies at a show.

Not surprisingly, this Chevy's unique pigment creates a fabulous foundation for a select array of mirrored bolt-ons. At the front of the car, a tan-trimmed bumper props polished guards in front of a polished Super Sport grille, bright parking lamps and modern headlights. At the top of that grille, a streamlined Chevrolet header leads a stainless-ridged hood, which fronts smoked glass that's planted in polished frames and polished wipers. At the base of that glass, a silky profile hangs stylish rocker spears between traditional door handles, polished wheel lips and classy bowtie mirrors. And at the back of that profile, a slim Super Sport valance splits a second broad bumper and jet-inspired taillights that frame a second Chevrolet header.

GET YOUR THRIL (LS)

Under the hood, an even six liters of proven GM LS2, tuned by Garner, North Carolina's RPM Motorsports, spins 378 rear-wheel horsepower into 329 lb./ft. of rear-wheel torque! At the front of the Deep Blue mill, a conical filter funnels wind in to a handsome metal intake by way of a factory throttle body. Under that “LS2” branded box, a factory serpentine drive spins modern power steering and a factory alternator opposite an Old Air Products AC compressor. At the sides of those ancillaries, hot MSD Street Fire Wires split Hedmans-coated Muscle Rods headers. Polished valve covers cap familiar 243 heads, which make excellent use of a quality Lunati cam and a tough Lunati valvetrain. A beefy aluminum radiator hangs a billet expansion tank next to big electric puller fans. Details like an Aeromotive pressure gauge, billet Eddie Motorsports hood supports, a billet oil cap and polished Wilwood brake components ensure first-class presentation. And all that glitz is framed in glossy 2-stage, which coats smooth fenders and a crisp firewall.

CONQUER THE ROAD

Behind that small block, a proven 4L65E 4-speed funnels torque to a tough 10-bolt axle. That drivetrain rides a rebuilt and lowered suspension that's been augmented with tubular control arms, thick sway bars and 2-inch drop spindles. Stops are provided by 4 and 6-piston Wilwood calipers, which cinch a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. At the center of the floor, large-diameter exhaust pipes shuffle spent gases through an X-shaped crossover and throaty Magnaflow mufflers. And all that mechanical goodness rolls on chromed Ridler wheels, which spin 245/45ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports in front of 275/40ZR20 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports.

BLUE THROUGH AND THROUGH

Pop the doors and you'll find a choice custom interior that was installed by the pros at Roanoke, Virginia's Horne's Auto Upholstery. Modern, Impala-branded buckets feature power adjustment for the car's driver. Opposite those thrones, a Deep Blue dash hangs Dakota Digital VHX telemetry above hardware for the car's modern air conditioning. At the floor, premium carpet floats thick mats between modern GTO pedals and a custom, full-length console that's boxed around a classy Lokar shifter and modern Kenwood audio. Custom, “Impala” branded door panels front a full suite of power-operated windows. And in front of the driver, a polished steering wheel laps a painted, tilting column.

Wrapping the flair of early 1960s optimism around the flash of modern performance, car's like this sweet Impala resto-mod are universally appealing. More to point, this classy Super Sport represents 'muscle motoring' at its very finest, combining stunning visuals with clean restoration and no-excuses power.
