1961 Chevrolet Impala 2 Door Hard Top
The lines of the 1961 Chevrolet Impala were smooth and not as pronunced as earlier models. Taut new finless styling had arrived. Chevrolet followed the marketing strategy of Ford for several years during the 60s and yet continued to out pace their production each year. They did this with a winning team of designers who came out on top every model year except 1966. The era's most beautiful big Chevy might just be the 1961 hard top with its sculptured lines like a raised convertible top. Starting with 1966, all the automakers were trying to make a car that would appeal to every market they could think of.
This car was purchased new in August of 1961. Tim & Mindy became the second owners in 1998. Even though the car was in very good condition, it under went a frame off restoration. This original looking hard top has a 348 cube big block and a four speed transmission. The rear end is still the original that was in the car. Body work and painting was done by Kevin VanLarrshoven who is the owner of Trackside Auto Body of Billings, MT. Don's upholstery did a top quality job which adds to the beauty of this Chevy.
We’ve all had that dream of walking into an old barn or garage and finding a treasure from the past. Not just any treasure, but a genuine 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby. The car’s owner recently passed away, and had kept the car in absolutely pristine condition. In fact, news reports say the car had never been washed because the owner did not want to scratch the paint. Its only problem was a thick coat of dust.
This car has a 428-cubic-inch Cobra Jet engine with four-speed manual transmission. Talk about original, it has the factory original plugs, belts and hoses. And, how about 8,500 actual miles on the speedo?
Sound good to you? Well, you may have a chance to own it…if you’re willing to cough-up an estimated six-figures to buy it. News reports say the car will be auctioned off by Ron Gilligan Auctions on April 25th. Click Here for details

All of us who have garages that connect to our homes have a lot to lose. One of the easiest ways a burglar can gain access to our homes is through the automatic garage door opener.
