1962 SS hubcaps......
And car owner Bobby Judkins?
Is that Howard Hughes? LOL Gary
Can't say for sure but it may be one of the very rare SS four doors.
One of our hot rod pioneers here in Australia likes to build out of the box cars. his latest is a 1948 Fiat Toppilino with an American Lafrance V12 engine. Here is an interview with Rod about the Fiat.
Denny, keep looking, you'll find one.

The original pony car??
That is Miami Beach, beautiful at night, but the wrong sort of crowd goes there now.
Very true, however we lived in the woods of northern Maine where snow is ass deep on a tall Indian as the saying went. I would be at university all the way over to Orono. We did what we had to, which is part of country living. Fortunately there wasn't much in the way of popping and snapping of steam out of the logs and dad was pretty conscientious about having the chimney swept.
Notice anything different about this Chevy?<br />
SS 4 door hardtop...!!!
Can't blowup that rear quarter panel good enough to tell.
Homebrew was the name of the game for this early-’50s hot rodder. With its dual-carb flathead, custom windshield and what we believe is a DeSoto grille, his ’34 Ford roadster was really a standout
There was a brief period where streamlining was in vogue out on the dragstrip, and Hank Vincent’s “Top Banana” was one of the sleeker examples. A hard runner in both B/ and C/Fuel Dragster, the slingshot was destroyed in a crash at Fremont Drag Strip in the spring of 1960, which sadly killed Hank Vincent.
Walt and Jesse Schrank campaigned this DeSoto-powered slingshot in the early-’60s. On a trip south sponsored by Al Gonzales of Algon Injectors, they set the Standard 1320 top speed record for B/Fuel Dragster at Lions with an 183.28mph blast. Check out the ultra-narrow Chassis Research frame and equally slim fuel tank.
The Tom Cobbs roadster sporting its removable hardtop storms off the line against an unidentified A-V8 coupe at an early drag race at. Note the drastically lowered profile and 3-71-blown flathead beneath the hood bubble.

OH-OH---The "GODFATHER" is on to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There was no such thing as 61 SS four door. ....in production, anyway. ...
'I think'... it could be Ernest Hemingway (seriously)
That's correct but SS trim was available on any Impala body style except the wagons. Dealers could install the trim to make the cars more attractive.
