Steve Scott’s 1960 Impala Wheelstander!

Steve Scott bought it 20 years ago all stock powered by a 283 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 and Dana 60.

I guess this wasn’t fast enough for him, so Steve swapped the 502 with a JLO built naturally aspirated 632 engine 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 wild 1960 Chevy Impala in action!
