This ’65 Chevy Impala hot rod may not seem like it went through any sort of heavy modification, but that’s why it’s been named the Imposter.Chip Foose has amazing skills and talent when it comes to coming up with unique and interesting designs, something that becomes obvious once you get a glimpse of the 1965 Impala “Imposter”.
The project won the 2015 Ridler Award at the annual Autorama in Detroit, and I’m not surprised it did. It all started when Don and Elma of Abbotsford, British Columbia, wanted to enjoy a cool car reminiscent of the Impala they drove to Disneyland on their honeymoon.
The Impala body ended up being 14 inches shorter and the Corvette frame had to be stretched 8 inches to fit.
But don’t be fooled, this thing is still a top-notch monster. Once you find out what the bonnet hides, you’ll get a real thrill: the LS3 V8 engine, with a Magnuson supercharger and an amazing engine cover.I got nothing left to say, except that I want to drive it!
