For 1961, Chevrolet again restyled its full-size lineup with new brightwork, revised nose and tail treatments and more to enhance the modern aesthetic. The Impala returned as the top-of-the-line model, offering a broad spectrum of comfort, performance, style and technology in one package. This 1961 Impala SS convertible reflects Chevrolet’s styling and marketing philosophy of the day very well, the black paint allowing the chrome and stainless to gleam and sparkle effortlessly while showing every curve, crease and nuance.
Powered by a 348 CI V-8 engine and a 4-speed manual transmission, it exhibits a muscular, racy, NASCAR edge, but an edge tempered with a lengthy roster of features and amenities that push it into the realm of 1960s luxury cars. The Impala coddles with a power-operated convertible top, windshield washers, AM radio, power windows, power steering and power brakes. The red interior is highlighted with textured and pleated seating surfaces, minimal white trim and aluminum elements that all contrast with striking presence against the black exterior, which is rounded out with twin sideview mirrors, dual antennas, front and rear bumper guards, chrome spinner hubcaps and whitewall tires.
When it debuted for 1958, the Impala took over from the Bel Air as the topline model and brought with it an entirely ’50s look that resonated very well. The new full-size Chevrolet sustained, once more, the image of a baby Cadillac with quad headlights, a full-width grille and an overall size dressed with stunning brightwork that created a presence like few others. It was a hit with buyers, despite a major recession hitting the economy, and it sold very well. This trend continued well into the future, with the Impala becoming one of Chevrolet’s most popular, enduring models.
