1963 Z06 impala / SEMA 2007

Hey Impala fans! We saw this 1963 Impala spinning in the Sony Xplod booth at SEMA and noticed it had all Z06 suspension under it... so we asked a few questions... cool car - the "Corpala" Thought you'd like to check it out!

I'm not 100% sure, but I thought 2 tail lights per side was for the biscayne and 3 went on the Impala?

I noticed the same thing. Must be a Biscayne, Bel-Air trunk lid on it. Didn't make the Bel-Air hardtop in 63' like previous years.

Well I E-mailed them and indeed it is an Impala! Here is the answer I got!

David -
Thanks for your email. As much as it may appear, the Corpala is truly a '63 (*although it has undergone a great deal of surgery).
We removed the 6 rear lenses and replaced them with 4 lenses from a '70 Camaro to hint at the Corvette influence of our design. The rear bumper was also reworked to accept the 4-tip exhaust in combination with the newly design trunk lid (*opens without the light assemblies). If you want to see it in person, it will be debuted for the first time in public at the upcoming Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona CA January 25-27.
Enjoy,
Christian
I still have trouble justifying using Camaro tail lights to hint Corvette, but that is their choose. Ultimately it looks like a really nice car.

I also noticed that and that is the only thing I don't like about it. I wonder what that frame will cost. I think he said it will be on the Power Tour and I will see it there.

I just found they updated the website with some new photos... better detail shots. Pretty wild car.
