Mine-still for sale 11k obo...
sounds like a fucking homo vacation!
did any wheels fall off?
Here is a few of my 61
and a few more
and one more
what kind of chassis is that, or did you build it?
that is sweet 61flattop!
this is my tame 350/350 '61 impala sedan i sold a couple years ago.
Holy shit! That's what I'm talkin about! I love how the rearend of the car always hangs to the right. I had a buddy in high school with a black '62 409/409 4 speed posi. That car did exactly the same thing every time off the line.....rear end would head for the right side of the track every time. Man, that clip brings back some pleasant memories of Friday night drags on the old abandoned hiway at midnight...
Here's a couple pics of a current father/son project, 1961 Impala
damn thats a nice setup man! no more hanger bearing!
My first car was a little old lady owned 61 2dht. White w/black flash on the side, 60k miles, 283/pg. Rebuilt it, Crane Fireball solid cam, 3 speed standard, 5 spoke black mags, gave 250.00 for it with a rocker arm slipped off the valve spring. Want one bad. Trade me out of something.
Geez bro...that's just fuckin wrong!
You must have some regret, miss the old thing huh? I'm gettin at it pretty good now. I'll post a few progress/improvements as I get em. So far I like the low n slow look, but I like the wheels painted to match as well.
The original intent was to exchange the blue interior kit you got for a grey/white/black get-up, then paint it hugger orange and drop it some. At 1st I was told no exchange from CARS but now I may have an "in" and get back to that idea. If not I guess it's Jubilee Blue, or as I call it, "Gramma Blue". Plenty of time to decide. And hey scotty...found another socket. Ima hold em hostage for those dog-dish caps How you gonna get shit done losin tools? See ya in a week.
Post some more kids. I love em!
Great lookin car! Hope it's in good hands...
thanks Monster.... The Chassis was built by Bob up at http://www.progressiveautomotive.com . they build a super nice piece !
I'm pretty sure this is Groucho back in the day.... can anyone confirm that?
it looks great with the tall tires tucked up in the quarters! i hope you're using that setup, it's a refreshing change from 18s and 20s...
