“The Imposter” was designed by Chip Foose, who wanted to build a ground-up custom that would handle like a modern muscle car.
According to Foose’s website, “Customer Don Voth and his wife Elma [Abbotsford, Bristish Columbia] drove a 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS on their honeymoon and they wanted to recreate that memory. The idea was to pay tribute to that car with a ground-up custom, but also have it handle like a modern machine. Once complete, they’ll be able to relive the early days of their marriage as they cruise.”
Foose dropped a ’65 Impala body on a new 2009 Chevrolet Corvette chassis for the build, which he has reportedly worked on since at least 2008.
