In 2006, some three weeks before Christmas, Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa reached out to West Coast Customs to see if they could build him a restored 1963 Chevrolet Impala for Mrs. Bryant to gift to Kobe on the morning of this game. Though some outlets would regard this as an impossible task, somehow the body shop completely rebuilt the classic car from the ground up in time for Bryant to take ownership on Christmas.

Seven years later, Kobe is responding by … well, he’s selling the car. Perhaps the 1963 specs are too much of a hassle for his recovering Achilles tendon, even if the car does house an automatic transmission. It can be yours on eBay, with a starting bid of $100,000. From the auction’s website:

Complete restoration on a rust-free vehicle, taken down to bare metal prior to painting. The car was completely disassembled prior to paint and reassembled using new glass, re-plated chrome and new stainless steel trim pieces. Very Recent Tuneup and Complete Battery Replacement.

Sale Includes Bryant's Registration, Insurance Card and Title for this Vehicle.

Yea not to bash the culture, but it ruins many American classics, namely the classics Impala's and 60's Continental's.

 

I still remember one time when I lived in NorCal I saw a 60's (probably 69) Mustang Mach 1 lowrider with a horrific green/white/red hood and truck glossy paint job.....didn't know Italians were into that lol.

I didn't realized Kobe was a cholo


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

What kind of BMW are you looking at that cost 100k?   Even the new M7 doesn't cost that much.  The newest M3 doesn't even come close.  Unless you talking about all the goodies that you will add on to the bmw.
