It’s not quite Halloween, but this custom orange-and-black 1963 Chevy Impala has what it takes to scare the pants of most anyone thanks to a massive supercharged 655 cubic-inch V8 engine.
Outside, this Chevy Impala is draped in a two-tone paint job that enhances the vehicle’s wide, low, and long proportions. The black top is divided from the orange bottom by a green stripe, while chrome trim bits add the requisite flash here and there. The rear deck lid is made from machined aluminum, while beadlock drag racing wheels in back mount a set of enormous Hoosier drag slicks.
There’s some serious rubber back there, but this Chevy Impala needs it considering what’s lurking under (and above) the hood. Making the go in this dragster is a 655 cubic-inch V8 engine, which incorporates a Dart aluminum block and full CNC porting, Crane solid roller cam, Callies Magnus Plus crankshaft, a Moroso crank trigger, MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator. There’s also a set of dual 4-bbl Holley carbs, while spent gasses are sent through a three-inch steel exhaust system from Flowmaster capped with Moroso mufflers.
And of course, we can’t forget the ridiculously large supercharger from Mooneyham Blowers sticking out of the hood.
This impressive blown V8 connects to the rear rubber through a TH400 automatic transmission, which was outfitted with an FTI anti-balloon torque converter and Earl 19-row transmission cooler. There’s also dual master cylinder Wilwood brakes, front to rear.
The interior was redone by Classic Industries, and comes with custom gauges located under the dash, as well as a Hurst quarter stick shifter. Interestingly, this high-powered Chevy Impala doesn’t come with a roll cage, which makes it a bit more “streetable,” but will also result in some wagging fingers at the drag strip.
Now, this custom 1963 Chevy Impala drag monster is up for sale, offered by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids for $69,900, all with just 679 miles on the odometer.
