Pro Touring theme of a ’62 Impala. Body modifications include shaved emblems and added a small cowl to the hood. Colors are Wimbledon White and Cordova Brown. Wheels used are Pegasus Hellas/Hollis, 19” in the front and 23” in the back with the centers painted in flat steel. Interior has a scratch built center console with Wolfster floormats, with Impala logo. The floor, package tray and headliner are all flocked. Resin copies added of speakers for the rear. The shifter is a pin bent into shape and the interior is finished up with seat belts with photo etch buckles. Under the hood is the kit 409 with the valve covers and air cleaner painted to match the body. Engine is wired with photo etch wire looms, fuel line added. Battery cables with photo etch terminals. Photo etch radiator cap, custom radiator and heater hoses complete the engine bay. The exhaust is completely scratch built from solder and aluminum tubing, headers all the way to the tips. Suspension was lowered to get the perfect stance.
