This 1961 Chevrolet Impala Says It's Not Honestly Dressed to Impress  

This 1961 Chevrolet Impala may appear to be well-groomed at first, but a closer inspection tells a different tale.

The original 283 V8 engine and transmission are no longer in the car.  

It's not an SS model, and there are a few rust spots on it, but the seller says most of the rust is on the surface.  

Even with these shortcomings, the Impala has a certain allure.  

Once fully restored, this Impala could definitely dress to impress those who see potential beyond the obvious.
