All About Chip Foose’s 1965 Chevy Impala. This wicked Chevrolet is Chip’s latest project and as always he has totally nailed it and the “Impostor” was awarded with the Ridler at the 2015 Detroit Autorama car show. This custom ’65 Impala is actually built over a 2008 Corvette drive train, meaning that the owner can go to any Chevrolet dealership and get it fixed.
Solid Detroit Agate / Fordite Cabochon Early 1960's Material (suzybones)
Fordite, also known as Detroit agate, is old automobile paint which has hardened sufficiently to be cut and polished. It was formed from the build up of layers of enamel paint slag on tracks and skids on which cars were hand spray-painted (a now automated process), which have been baked numerous times.
