Huntington Beach, Calif. (August 17, 2016) - Chip Foose’s 2015 Ridler-award winning 1965 Chevrolet Impala custom, nicknamed Impostor, will be making a series of appearances this month during the world-famous Monterey Historic Automobile Week in Carmel, Calif.

Named for the way its subtly modified body hides modern C6 Corvette underpinnings, Impostor is one of Foose’s most extensive builds to date. Despite looking much like a stock 1965 Impala at a glance, Impostor has been chopped, lowered, shortened, narrowed, and has a significantly altered wheelbase. Built for Canadian construction magnate Don Voth, the car features custom Foose styling touches throughout, designed to evoke the 1965 Corvette Sting Ray.  The Corvette C6 drivetrain and suspension ensure that Impostor performs as well as it looks.

The Impostor custom will be on display at the festivities in Monterey. An appearance at the exclusive Carmel Mission Classic, an event with only 50 cars invited to display, will occur on Wednesday, August 17th. Several other major appearances are scheduled in the Monterey area throughout the week..  These may possibly be Impostor’s final public appearances before returning to owner Don Voth’s collection permanently.

"The Monterey Historic Automobile Week is one of the greatest car gatherings anywhere and we’re honored and excited to be taking part,” said Chip. "I’m very proud that the Impostor will be in Monterey to provide a unique retro and modern twist on such a historic event.”
