Detroit, Mich. – March 8, 2015 – Last night Don and Elma Voth of Abbotsford, British Columbia accepted the 2015 Ridler Award for their Chip Foose built 1965 Chevrolet Impala. The radical hardtop, dubbed “Imposter”, boasts a Corvette LS3 and 2008 Corvette Chassis with Magnaflow exhaust and a beautiful custom mixed BASF paint job.
The Voths drove a 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS on their honeymoon and wanted to recreate that memory. The idea behind it 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 has reportedly been working on this build since 2008.
