Late Great Chevy Pit Stop Blog
America’s Hottest Hot Rod!
Detroit Autorama 2015
Chip Foose-designed 1965 “Imposter” Chevy Impala that won last year’s Ridler award, owned by Don Voth during the 63rd annual Autorama in Detroit.
The Impala is actually a 2008 Corvette, bought new by the Voths, with body panels massaged by Foose into an Impala lookalike.
The Imposter has the Corvette’s stock engine, but the frame was stretched 8 inches. The Impala body was shortened 14 inches.
Foose said Don Voth and his wife Elma drove a 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS on their honeymoon, and wanted to remember that car with one that handled like a modern Vette.
One-off custom 20-inch wheels on the Imposter.
The Corvette electronics, including OnStar, still work in the interior.
