1962 CHEVY IMPALA JESSE LINDBERG REDDING, CA
Atthe Sacramento Autorama, Scott Bonowski (who’d won the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award a month before) insisted that we take a close look at Jesse Lindberg’s Impala. Jesse found the car in pieces, scattered all over, and built it at his automotive repair shop. He competes in Sound Quality contests, but the high-end audio system is only one of many impressive parts. Two-tone gold and green paint finish a body modified with subtle mods. Raceline 19and 20-inch wheels fill the fenders. A carbureted Chevy Vortec 350 engine and 700-R4 trans move the Impala down the street, with airbags and CPP shocks ironing out the ride. Inside, tan leather upholstery is paired with vintage cloth inserts. The top-shelf stereo components hidden in the trunk are heard but not seen. We’ll have a full article in a future issue.
