The 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS – Fully Functional Hopping Lowrider was designed and built by Jeroen de Vries – better known as Jevries. He has always enjoyed the model kit world and wanted to make the models jump like real cars. Jevries got creative with his knowledge of circuit boards, relays and hacking servos as he designed his first hopping low rider from a model kit he purchased from Radio Shack. He cut and changed the plastic chassis and added all kinds of materials he found at his local hardware store. Finally, after several test he was able to make a small car that could hop, pull into three-wheel motion and pancakes back to the ground just like real size low rider cars.

For Jevries the low rider vehicles look like no other custom cars out there, they are an expression of ones individual personality, taste and lifestyles. There are several options for colors, patterns, murals, pin striping, accents, engravings and the list goes on. Being able to modify your vehicle is what gives it your own independent defining look that represents your style and individuality.

After several years of traveling and showing off his new design’s for hopping toy vehicles he had many individuals asking where they could purchase one. His hobby was about to evolve into an actual dream come true. From many of his videos he posted on social media it caught the eyes of Redcat Racing industry for remote control vehicles. Redcat got in touch with Jevries and told him they were interested in making an RC vehicle based on his design and have it available for sale to the public. So after a joint collaboration between the two they came up with what we now have as the 64 Impala Hoping Lowrider RC vehicle in the 1 1/0th scale.


This is what the design has become. We now have the SixtyFour – Fully Functional 1:10 scale RTR Hopping Lowrider that has been expertly designed and engineered. It’s design captures the 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS in a classic highly-detailed, fully-functioning 1:10 scale Remote Control Car. The SixtyFour was designed from the ground up with the low rider, auto enthusiast and R/C scalar communities in mind. Do you agree. If so leave comments below.

Every detail of the SixtyFour was painstakingly and passionately created with scale accuracy and detail. The Impala SS interior and exterior bagging adorn the 1964 Impala SS body and interior with 23 individual chrome plated molded parts which are used to create the body’s accessories. Optional LED lights are available for nighttime cruising, more details on this below. The attention to detail continues below the body, with the chassis frame, faux transmission and functional solid rear axle with removable differential cover. Who, likes to make adjustments. These features enable the owner to make changes and give the impala their own look and style.

The SixtyFour is designed for slow cruising and performing tricks that you can only do with special hydraulically actuated suspensions. Using specialty servos and precision weight bias, it replicates the driving style and overall look of a full sized low rider / hopper.

For the RC enthusiast having something that is totally different from all the other RC vehicles available makes the 64 hopper lowrider an amazing piece of history to have in your collection. This one will most likely only be made available for a short time and will become an RC classic in time. It could very well be one of those items that as we get older will be an item that our grandchildren will talk about. Keeping one still serviceable in the box might become a collectors item in years to come for memorabilia reasons.

I believe we can all appreciate the effort that has been put into building and designing something special in the RC vehicle enthusiast sport. Happy Hopping.   1964 Chevrolet Impala SS - Fully Functional Hopping Lowrider
