An original 1961 Chevrolet Impala bubble top that has never been restored is operational.  

Finding an original 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top that still has all of its components in working order is extremely rare.

This specific model is evidence of the major changes that the third-generation Impala brought, such as the introduction of the SS option.  

Under the hood, the original 283 V8 engine is still neatly purring, and the car is in exactly the same condition as when it came off the assembly line.  

The odometer indicates that it has been well-preserved over the years, showing just over 45,000 miles, most likely all original.

Even though the paint might use some touch-ups, this Impala is a desirable addition to any collection or would-be classic daily driver  

because it doesn't have any significant rust.

Nearly thirty bids have been placed on this vehicle's auction, demonstrating both its value and the interest enthusiasts have shown in it.
