1959 Chevy Impala

1959 Chevy Impala

 

There are times when a fresh start is the best solution to a problem. In the case of 
this fine 59 Impala a new body was the fresh start it needed to get to the long low 
and sleek cruiser you see today. In 1959 the Impala was radically re-styled with 
vast wrap around windows, horizontally protruding fins that covered “cat eye” tail 
lights and a trunk large enough to house a pop-warner football team. The more 
luxurious interior offered some of the best design elements to come out of a 
Chevrolet plant with deep set hooded gauges, front and rear arm rests, dual sliding 
visors and crank operated vent planes.
 The unmistakable fins of this 59 Impala are drenched in an eye searing two tone 
combination of orange and white that lead to the cars name; Crush. When Crush 
came to us it was clear this car was going to be a show stopper. We were entrusted 
to improve upon its lines with some minor clean up and extensive detail work to 
make sure everything was perfect. This meant many hours of meticulous 
restoration and massaging miles and miles of bodywork.  When all was said and 
done Crush is now a car that cannot be ignored!
