1960 Chevrolet Impala Shows Us The Definition of Torque

Posted in Chevrolet, General, Hot Rods, Racing by Kurt Ernst | April 17th, 2010 | 2 Responses |

Torque is a measure of rotational force. Given the rotational force exhibited by this ’60 Impala, I think we should stop using “foot pounds” as a standard of measurement and start using Impalas, where one Impala equals a thousand foot pounds of torque.

I have no idea how this car keeps it’s windshield in place ot the doors shut. That motor must be making some serious power to loft the front end and twist the frame like that.

    What an engine that must be to do that to such a heavy car. Thats when cars had metal interiors that you could just hose off, no plastic crap woodgrain interiors.

    That Impala has a crap-ton of motor in it, but the big reason that its flexing so bad is its x frame.
