Basketball Royalty's Timeless Beauty: Kobe Bryant's Custom 1963 Chevrolet Impala Convertible ! - 040

Get ready for a jaw-dropping spectacle as a true automotive masterpiece takes center stage at Barrett-Jackson’s 2014 Scottsdale car auction. This isn't just any classic car; it's a magnificent 1963 Chevrolet Impala Custom Convertible, once cherished by none other than NBA legend Kobe Bryant himself.

Imagine this: in 2006, Bryant's wife commissioned the creation of this bespoke two-door sedan. The magic happened at the renowned West Coast Customs, and the end result was delivered to Kobe as a Christmas present. A true labor of love, the Impala was meticulously transformed, emerging as an absolute work of art.

Every inch of this rust-free beauty was lovingly disassembled and then meticulously reimagined, inside and out. It boasts a show-stopping multi-coat paint job that glistens in the spotlight. Under the hood, a custom V8 engine reigns supreme, powered up with Edelbrock headers and adorned with exquisite billet accessories.

But that's not the end of the story. This purple icon of American classic cars received a modern upgrade that complements its timeless charm. It now boasts enhanced brakes, a power tilt-function steering wheel, and a hydraulic suspension equipped with Pro Hopper pumps.

Inside, the Impala indulges in white leather upholstery adorned with glistening Swarovski crystals, transforming the cabin into a luxurious haven. And to keep the rhythm alive, there's a trunk-mounted stereo system that takes your driving experience to the next level.

The car's legacy is so significant that it found a place in the hallowed pages of Lowrider magazine back in November 2007. Now, in about a week's time, you have the incredible opportunity to become the next custodian of this automotive legend as it goes under the hammer at Barrett-Jackson's auction.

The best part? It will be offered at no reserve, ensuring that it will find its way to someone who truly appreciates its unique blend of style, luxury, and history.
