I gotta follow this and see where it goes for obvious reasons. See my avatar.
I can see the pics.
gotta56forme, you were correct in thinking a Mother's Powerball (actually I got a cone shaped one) and polish would make them look good. Got the...
I would say so. They came off a '64 Impala SS.

4tford, that's in the plan. Thanks for the tip!
Thanks!! Oh yes, I know about the seat covers. There's a towel in there somewhere for that reason.
Found a set of 14" slots and am picking them up tonight. Hopefully they'll clean up nice, then it's attacking the engine and gas tank to get it...
As I look for wheels, what should I look for as far as what would look best? 14" or 15"? I know deep dish wouldn't look good. Thanks in advance.
Thanks guys. I agree, I won't take a chance on these wheels, safety wise. 50 bucks for the set that fit my car would be tempting, but I won't...
I sent a message to the seller asking if those are cracks. Looks like 2 have cracked, and opposite those 2 there is another ready to.
What do you guys think about this wheel? On my local Craigslist. Says it is aluminum center with steel rim. Looks cracked/broken to me. These...
Here's where I found that pic.
There's also a...
I found this pic, but it talks about it being 1961. Obviously has the layover engine, and was attributed to Greenman-Casale. Same car?
I found a good pic from 2009. It is basically still in this condition, I hope!!
Not parts store, but somewhat related. About 15 years ago, my Dad had a '62 Galaxie 4 door. I was driving it somewhere, and parked in a parking...
Thanks guys! I don’t have any plans on getting rid of it, my son said he’d shoot me if I did! My 2 boys live 2 blocks apart, and about 5 blocks...
Last I knew, the radio worked. It will be left there, but I will put in an AM/FM/CD player under the dash. Got to have my tunes to stay sane.
I will definitely be keeping this simple. No major modifications.
Thanks for the link!! I had looked on Rockauto.com. Tank was 86 on there. I priced cap, rotor, plug wires, radiator hoses, and a few other...
I’ll keep any parts I change out. This isn’t a high dollar car, I know. The front bumper is bent a little on the right side, and above the...
I will just see what I can find.
Just out of curiosity, what do you guys think the average value of this car is?
Thanks! The CB will stay just because. There is a magnet mount antenna in the trunk. I thought about lowering, but is sits real low as it is....
Traditional GPS. Gonna have to label it as that!
Thanks Sky Six. Yes, they are fantastic. Mom called me and figured I'd be more motivated to get it going than Dad would. He's had some minor...
Well, the compass may stay then. Heehee... I'm 54, and remember my grandparents having them too.
