    It all depends on the look your going for. My cars looks cool with these wheels, but that not the look I want. They are just what I have to put on it it right now.

    ...Might be a shadow on the valve cover making it look like that shape, but is that a 348??

    Man, 1961 HTs that nice aren't cheap anymore.

  13. In my opinion, the bubble top is one of the most beautiful cars that GM designed.

    Looks like your off to a great start. The stance and tire/wheel combo is perfect.

    Hey squirrel, they are relatively rare. Out of nearly 1/2 million 61 full size Chevys of all models and body styles, about 12,000 were sport coupe Belairs, but no breakdown of engines. The 12K represents the hot rods all the way down to 6cyl bread n butter cars. No telling how many donor cars became Impalas over the years. I like the clean styling on the sides w/out the painted cove in the Impala trim. I plan to mix n match some details in mine. I might add Impala armrests and such, plan to plate my W/S inner trim and outer window channels, maybe a few other things crossed over. Belairs are like a blank sheet of paper to do what we see fit.
