Chevrolet Impala SS (1962)


Chevrolet Impala SS (1962)

Lowriding's origins can be traced back to the 1950s when the customizing craze was going full swing. Car modifiers would take their machines and lower them as far as possible for maximum visual impact. While amongst the regular family cars, these lowered rides looked aggressive and ultra cool, but they had one problem: their height. The cars couldn't be driven over anything without scraping the underneath of the car. Inventive modifiers used the hydraulic rams off of commercial vehicles to help them raise and lower their cars as required, thus the current craze of hydraulic cars began. Due to availability, bargain price and their good looks when dropped to the ground, the Chevy Impalas became very popular. This one has a full custom paint job, deep buttoned velour interior and hydraulic rams at each corner with pumps for each chromed and mounted in the trunk.
