This 1961 Chevrolet Impala 348 Tri-Power Needs No TLC; Flexes New Everything.

Forget dusty barns and lost hopes! The 1961 Chevrolet Impala 348 Tri-Power is not your typical classic automobile restoration story.

This beauty has gone through a complete change, emerging not only restored but reborn.

Every inch has glistening new components, a monument to the effort put into its restoration.

The aged interior and faded paint are gone.  This Impala has a new coat, and the color is most likely a statement piece that matches the owner's style.

The interior could be entirely rebuilt, with rich materials and modern facilities that mix harmoniously with the historic style.

But the real magic is hidden beneath the hood. The iconic 348 cubic inch V8 engine, once a monster on its own, may have been restored or even upgraded.
