Discussion therad > viewtopic.php?f=18&t=36383 Suppose its time to post up a project thread on the ol girl. Acquired a 1964 Chev Impala SS Convertible a few months back. Needs a bit of love and work to be restored to its former glory! Shes been a bit of a slut and been through a few hands with little to no work been done on her in the recent years (besides cutting some springs and slapping some paint on). Good thing is basically everything is there more or less a complete car. When i got it, sporting its white garage paint job! (Not to bad considering) Cut/No springs and not running. Its bright red factory interior complete with SS floor shift. Interior is still MINT condition no rips, fades or anything. Got to work on it removing the 283 & powerglide with the country spec engine crane. She has seen better days underneath and needs a bit of rust work done, panelbeater wants me to get body sandblasted then will get to work ordering replacement steel work from the states. Can buy brand new EVERYTHING for these from the states which is good, and at reasonable prices with the exchange rate. Have got to work stripping her down, This is how she sits currently. Plans are get rust and panel work done, Tidy up and paint engine and fit with shiny bits, 4 barrell carb and the likes. Sandblast and paint chassis, fit with new suspension and brakes. Refit everything and get it on the road.
