The ImpalHRR

A wild and unique example of the rare ’65 Impala drop top Story by Budd Stanley

I

t would be quite safe to say that Keith Biddlecombe has somewhat of a love affair with the Chevrolet Impala. For over 25 years, Keith has been collecting all sorts of Impalas, concentrating on the fine vintage of 1965. At one time, he had no fewer than seven Impalas in his possession, including a ’65 wagon and a ’65 SS Pro Street machine. However, there was something missing from this fine collection, and that was a convertible. As the president of the British Columbia Hot Rod Association (BCHRA), Keith’s love affair has flourished with help from those around him always hinting where he might be able to find parts, engines and, in one case, a ’65 Convertible that had been sitting in a Chilliwack barn for upwards of twenty years. The final piece of the puzzle was complete; however, despite the car itself having all its bits, it was in desperate need of work.

Work started with an Art Morrison chassis, with Strange coilover suspension placed at each corner to give the big girl better manners in the corners, and Wilwood six-pot calipers clamping down on two-piece rotors in the front, and four-pots in the rear to bring all the madness to a stop. HRR went to work cutting out all the rot on the body and making a mass of little detail changes. Wheel wells were tubbed, bumpers sucked in, and front valence integrated, while quarter panels, fenders, and rear valence have all received subtle massaging. No panel was left behind in the effort to build the most unique Impala of them all. A quick eye will catch the custom billet “IMPALHRR” badging, while the car is finished off with modern LED taillights and PIAA driving and headlights up front.

When it came time for the drivetrain, a meeting between the two men spawned another uniquely new idea, “Wouldn’t it be cool to have a 4,000-pound car with independent rear suspension?” So they had an independent Jaguar-style rear end built for the car utilizing a CWI quick change differential and inboard brakes Having previously worked with Rod Nielsen of Hot Rod’s Restos mounted inboard on either side of the diff housing. (HRR) in Delta, B.C., Keith approached Rod once again with his new vision. He’d always wanted a candy red ’65 convertible cruiser, The heart of this project is the engine, a work of art so great that a custom-equipped 3,800-pound high-performer making use of the Keith couldn’t hide it beneath a hood. A good 409 engine was found unique 409 cubic-inch engine, the final year for that mill. As with so in an old grain truck in Saskatchewan, looted and brought out to many projects where the owner and the designer see eye-to-eye, the coast for a massive rehabilitation. That rehab came via K&S this project was going to quickly get out of hand. Keith’s confidence Machine in Kelowna, B.C. in the form of a massive bore and stroke in Rod’s artistic qualities meant that the two worked on some fine job taking the 409 up to 505 cubic-inches with the use of an Eagle 4.5-inch stroker crank working eight JE 8.5:1 forged pistons. details, but most of the work was left in Rod’s capable hands. 32 Performance Plus oct / nov 2012

dington custom-make a one-off six-spoke wheel with dual internal spokes to carry on the unique quality of the car. Inside, all the seats and the trunk are worked by linear actuators running off a remote control. Fine buck leather covers everything that isn’t a fine instrument chiseled from billet. The centrepiece, literally, is the floating gauge group built by Infanti Rides that seems to levitate in the dash opening. With the car coming together, the immensity of the project started to create waves in the industry and soon Arc Audio became interested in the car and offered its services. The Impala was fitted with a state-of-the-art sound system including a Kenwood head unit powered by Arc Audio Chip Foose Design components, six 12-inch subs and six amps along with a myriad of mids, tweets and custom work to produce the highest quality sound and design. Yup, it looks just as good as it sounds. The first ever set of Lamar Walden cast aluminum 690 performance Looking back at the project, Keith remarks, “It was a perfect recipe heads made for the 409 were installed along with valve covers, for a car that could get right out of control, and that’s just what water pump and oil pan. Feeding the engine with fuel would be an happened.” As you can see by the photos, he’s bang on the money. HRR custom fuel rail powered by a Motec computer. It was actually Keith’s son who thought of the possibility of utilizing a turbo system on the car after seeing “Rosie” the twin-turbo Mustang that was also built by HRR. With that, a Banks twin-turbo kit was fitted to the engine along with a set of Vibrant Performance intercoolers super cooled with a DEI Cryo2 system and HRR custom intake piping. Before going back to HRR for final installation, the big V8 was hooked up to the K&S engine dyno. With 6-psi of boost, it was making 685 hp and 745 lb-ft of torque below 5,500 rpm. With all that torque, you need a hardcore gearbox, which in this case comes in the form of a 6-speed manual Tremec T56 transmission lifted from a 2003 Viper, directing the twin turbos’ fury to the rear end for distribution to the tires. A traditional five-spoke wheel just wouldn’t do, like the rest of the car; something special was needed, so Keith had Chris Cod-

In its first few years, the car was a show queen, visiting all the roadster shows down in the States as well as SEMA two years in a row and several other high-end and invitational shows. So what does Keith enjoy most about this magnificently impressive car? Well, that would be the two things that he originally wanted. The Liquid Fire Cabernet red paint job, and the unique 409 power plant. However, the floating dash that both Rod and Keith designed together is also a particularly striking characteristic. More importantly, now that the ImpalHRR has finished its duty as a show queen, Keith is now enjoying the Impala for what it is, a great cruiser for the street. After two years of being ferried around in a trailer, the ImpalHRR now gets driven to shows and weekend drives, as it should. The only issue - a hood was never actually built for the car, as the engine was shown in all its glory to the public, so it will likely be making another trip to HRR in the near future. May we suggest a ZR1-like window in the new hood?

Classic Car Parts

Story by Richardt Scholz

O ver the past several years the downturn in the economy

We spoke with a couple of the owners of these companies to get there prospective.

Brian Pierce, owner of Tiger Automotive in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan specializes in restoration and custom parts for both cars and trucks. They have been in business for more than 30 years catering to the classic auto enthusiast and during that time have seen many changes and the positive effect it has had in favour of their customers. “Over the past couple of decades, with the increase in value of classic cars, more owners are willing to invest significant funds into the restoration of these vehicles. This has resulted in the establishment of additional companies specializing in reproduction parts which in many cases are as good or better than their original OEM counterparts manufactured 30 years ago. During the past two decades many things have changed With so many high quality replacement parts now available I when it comes to the restoration of classic North American believe more people will be encouraged to restore and preiron. Back in 1992, there were only a handful of compa- serve these classic cars and trucks for many years to come”. nies specializing in the manufacture of replacement parts wheras today there are literally dozens of companies producing reproduction parts for these cars. So much so in fact that in many cases you can almost build a complete car or truck entirely from reproduction parts. This is especially true if you own a classic Mustang or Camaro. has effected the value of almost everything we buy and sell. Not spared from the effect of the worldwide recession, the asking and selling price of classic & custom, hot rod and muscle cars have all fallen by 30 to 40%. Although many enthusiasts with car collections are not very happy with this recent turn of events there is a silver lining to this dark cloud if you’re considering the purchase of one of these vehicles. This recent ‘price correction’ along with the strongest Canadian dollar in recent memory have caused a very unique set of conditions making this one of, or possibly the best time in the last 20 years to buy and restore a collector car in Canada.

With the increased availability of repro parts there are now more local businesses than ever that cater to the collector car builder. Bowtie Auto Parts & Restorations, Classic Performance, Classic Mustang, Gasoline Alley, Memory Lane, The Muscle Car Shop, Tiger Automotive, Old Car Centre, Peninsula Restorations and Reproduction Parts Marketing are just a few of the businesses that come to mind in this regard. 38 Performance Plus OCT / nov 2012

PARTS FEATURE Another very well known company in the industry is Classic Mustang located in Victoria, British Columbia. As the name suggests, they specialize in original and reproduction parts specifically for the vehicle generally credited with starting the Pony Car wars between the big 3 auto manufacturers back in the early sixties. Owner Jeremy Mannall-Fretwell had this to say. “I think the collector car industry as a whole is very healthy all things considered. One area that has seen significant improvement is replacement body parts. Ten years ago you had to take what you could get because there wasn’t a lot of choices back then. Now there are lots of options at various price points. However, some customers expect Canadian prices to be the same as US prices now that our money is virtually at par with the American dollar not realizing that there are additional shipping costs, taxes,

If you’ve been contemplating the purchase and restoration of your ‘dream car’, now is the time to make it happen. When the economy improves interest in these collector cars will once again improve as well which will drive up the value of these vehicles. From an investment standpoint, this is a perfect time to capitilize on current market conditions.

CALIFORNIA ROD AND CUSTOM

OWNER:

HAROLD HOPINK

ADDRESS:

26676 8TH AVE. LANGLEY, BC

TEL:

(604) 533-2120, 1-800-599-2120

WEBSITE: WWW.CALIFORNIATIRE.COM WHAT THEY DO: BUILD HOT RODS AND CUSTOMS THE COMPANY LINE Like many who enter this business, Harold’s love of building cars came from his youth, wanting to modify and tune his own vehicles. Opening a smalltime tire and wheel shop in Langley B.C., Harold was soon approached by people wanting custom work done to their vehicles, with demand becoming so high that California Rod and Custom came to be. Since that time, the business has continued to grow, to the point where the small shop was just not big enough to keep up with demand. Harold moved the business to a new 10,000 square-foot facility churning out high-quality hot rods and customs.

If there was one thing the average classic car owner needs to know about California Rod and Custom, something that people might not know or understand, what would benefit future customers? It’s probably that we are still here. Maybe not everyone knows that we have moved into our new facility in Aldergrove. But we’ve been around pretty much longer than anyone and we’re still building beautiful cars. We have the ability to build anything, from simplistic hot rods to high-end customs slammed full of the latest technology, so come see us any time or check out our website.

So Harold, as you’re pretty new to Performance Plus readers, let’s learn a little more about you. What got you into building cars? How did you get your start? Basically it all came from tuning cars back in the day, trying to build the loudest stereo and building something that was new and great. We would always read car magazines that gave us ideas on the latest trends coming out of California at the time, and that is where our name came from. And how have trends changed? What do you find people are wanting these days in their custom vehicles? Right now it’s all about the high-tech; everything has gone over the top with electronics. It’s all about the most technology that you can stuff into a car. Now, these old cars can be driven every day, cars with 800 and 900 horsepower that are just as nice and reliable as, say, a new BMW. It’s just nice for the customer to have the look of a classic and the build, handling and reliability of a new car.

If you could build any car you want for yourself, what car would you start with and would you pick that vehicle?

What would you say separates California Rod and Custom from the other shops out there? What makes you special? You know, a lot of it has to do with how long we’ve been around. I’ve seen a lot of shops come and go; they realize how hard it is to create relationships with customers and make this kind of business work. We’ve lasted this long for a reason, and our customers are happy enough with the work we’ve done for them that they tell their friends. We rarely have to advertise; we always get recommended by customers who have already had good experiences with us. That says a lot about a company.

Well, you know that is a tough question. I am a lover of all cars. I like Fords, but I like Chevies as well. I’m not so sure that there is one dream project out there for me, but lots of ideas I have for several cars. One that I am currently working on is a long-box ‘68 Chevy pickup that I am turning into a roadster. And of course, what type of fabrication, modifications, parts and goals would you implement into the build? Well, I’m going to cut the roof and put a lot of unique metal work into it. It will also get an Art Morrison chassis and LS engine, but I’m just going to make it fast and convenient to drive, something that I will enjoy.

Do you have a particular style, a specialty that helps define the cars that leave your shop? That would be our tin work; we do a lot of custom sheet metal work. We used to be known as the bolt-together boys, but now we have a highly skilled mechanic in with a tin man, who can do wonders with metal. That is what really sets us apart from the other guys; we have a fine attention to detail and can rework bodies to look stock, but are full of really subtle body mods. Cars are beautiful just the way they are, but we like to tighten them up, clean them up and make them look a little more unique.
