1,000hp Custom Pro-Street Looks For Big Money

2020 has had many headlines in these short 7 months or so. Besides the unveiling of the 2021 Bronco and some other gems along the way, the automotive world has sorta slowed down. Auctions have been rescheduled, car shows have gone into hiding, and automotive groundbreaking news seems few and far between. We’re left looking forward to the return on these events that we all hold sacred. Life as we knew it is coming back slowly, and we can now look forward to some top-notch cars going across the block. This is where this 1962 Custom Bubble Top comes into the picture.

One car in particular caught our attention as we were scouting the upcoming World Wide Auctioneers Auburn Auction. 1,000hp of pure muscle put into one of Chevrolet’s most historic vehicles.

This custom 1962 Chevrolet Bubble Top Pro-Street isn’t a head-turner because wherever you’re at, you’ll know its there long before you see it. With a 555cid Chevy big block, TH400 automatic transmission, Hillborn fuel injection, TBS supercharger, and Wilwood disc brakes on all 4 corners, this hot rod goes way farther than just trying to look the part.

Meshed with the body of a ’62 Impala and the roof + glass from the highly sought after ’61 Bubble Top, this Pro-Street hotrod has an impeccable look. That’s not just my opinion either, this build took first place at the 2020 Detroit Autorama.

As World Wide describes opening the hood as “opening a box to a brand-new shiny diamond ring”, the complete chrome finish theme is as good as it gets. Even better is that when you close the hood, you can still see that automotive jewelry poking out.

Lastly, to make driving this Impala even more enjoyable, a Vintage Air A/C system plus a sound system were installed.  Not sure how loud your music will have to be to drain out the sound of that big block, but at least the illusion of listening to your music is there.

Offered with no reserve, when this custom 1962 Chevrolet crosses the block on September 5th in Auburn, it’ll be going to a new home no matter what. If you want to see more of this incredible build, you can see it on Worldwide’s website now.
