This Hemi-Powered 1963 Chevrolet Impala Demands Every Ounce Of Respect It Is Owed.

“The Gudfar”, Norwegian for “The Godfather”. Ok, let’s ditch every reference to Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 masterpiece of a film right off of the bat, because seriously, it’s not needed. Sure, it’s a long black car, but this isn’t a mob sled…this is a fire-breather of a back-halved 1963 Chevrolet Impala, packing a 540ci Hemi-headed mill with a screw blower sitting on top. It’s not nice…do anything other than what it requires of you and it will dance all over the track, regularly doing it’s best to scare the holy hell out of brothers Jamond and Todd Haug on each and every pass. It doesn’t have a pattern to it’s misbehavior, either…one moment the tires can cut loose, resulting in a pedalfest for the ages, the next the tires could be hooking well enough that every application of the throttle has the front end bouncing up like a lowrider. We’ve seen it do it all, including when it took a trip through a wheat field, getting too close for comfort to a cameraman from Urban Hillbilly Videos in the process. The Impala is still fresh, so hopefully the chassis tuning can tame this beast somewhat…honestly, would it be the same if there weren’t theatrics to such a big, blown and badass car? We don’t think so. Hit play below to see The Gudfar in action!

    They built it for fun but still tried to run a number but too heavy – now that sweet motor is in a \’53 Studebaker & running faster!!
