Completely authentic 1961 Chevrolet Impala boasting identical V8 numbers with no repairs

This 1961 Chevy Impala overcomes the difficulties. Complete originality is a rare claim, unlike most old cars.

Its history is tarnished by zero repairs, and every part, from the shiny chrome to the luxurious interior, has echoes of a life unspoiled.

Under the hood, though, is where the real wonder is.  This Impala shows off its matching-numbers V8 engine with pride.

This indicates, in car jargon, that the engine the vehicle is running now is the same one that it had when it first left the factory in 1961.  

The excitement of having a vehicle with such a spotless past and a powerplant that has devotedly served the vehicle for more than 60 years can only be imagined.

Even though the specifics of this V8 engine version are yet unclear, it is an important part of automotive history.
