Steve Scott’s 1960 Impala Wheelstander!

We all love the gorgeous style of the classic Chevy Impalas and there are some fabulous hot rods at every car show, but what we have here is a 8-second 1960 Impala which makes the crowd go wild at various drag racing events over and over again.

Steve Scott has bough this classic bow tie 20 years ago all stock powered by a 283 CID engine paired with a Powerglide tranny. A while ago he decided to build a street machine and fitted his 1960 Impala with a Crate 502 V8 mounted to a Turbo 400 with a Dana 60 rear end.

I guess this wasn’t fast enough for him, so Steve swapped the 502 with a JLO built naturally aspirated 632 cubic inch V8 motor and the result is a wheelstanding 8-second Chevrolet Impala a.k.a Impalasaurus proud member of the Midwest Super Stock Mafia 8 sec Doorslammers Group.

Check out my man James Hrovat’s video to see this bow tie in action. Watch, Enjoy & Share!
