Back in the late '50s and early '60s, cars didn't necessarily have "generational" styling like they do today. These days, designers often create a model that stays cosmetically the same for 3 to 5 years, and eventually release small tweaks, or refresh the design with new lights, bumpers, and wheels. Back in the 1950s and '60s, there were many cases where every model year was unique, with huge stylistic changes every 12 months.

This stunning 1961 Impala is owned by Ivan Romano, of Ladera Ranch, California. An avid collector of classic GM vehicles, Ivan recently purchased this Impala and brought it to California from its previous home in Colorado. It will now be joining Ivan's garage, along with his 1972 Camaro Z28 (which we previously featured) and "museum quality" 1967 GMC pickup.

The cherry red and white Impala has undergone a meticulous frame-off restoration and is immaculate inside and out. The aluminum trim, chrome accents, and spotless engine bay show very fine attention to detail. Speaking of the engine, Ivan says it's a 348ci V8 car, but was dressed as a "409" by the previous owner.
