One hell of an nice improvement.
A little shave will be coming too ( and yes, those wheels are gone)
Some new stainless for the " exhaust ports"
A little pin striping behind the wheels will be coming too.
Those stainless trim rings look good. Where did you find them?
Anyone who carries Kenworth or Peterbuilt truck parts will have them. - watch though as many are chromed plastic, not stainless like these.
nice ride. I owned a 1960 98 model about 12 years ago. My wife just bought me a dynamic hard top for our anniversary in Oct. There's a 1960 olds club on facebook. join.
More ick cleaned up and a mouse evicted.
Wow glad to see the 60 olds coming on I have had mine for 9 years now and its the 2nd time I owned her. The wheels are 5x5 pattern and a little hard to find nice wheels I run 56 Cad wires on mind. Like you new wireing and new window rubbers I stepped up to a newer booster and master as well as new lines like you. If you need body parts I have a yard back east I have had great luck with getting parts.
Bobs Impala has new tanks there a little diffrent but fits well and the neck is correct the Diffrence is the olds is flater and the chevy is deeper but mine fit perfect and works great and it was only 110 on sale. I also can help you with a company that put all my fittings on a new kit and mailed to me complete.
Great, thank you. If you have a suggestion for an interior, I could sure use it. If I cant, its tuck and roll forever.
She's dormant now then another sanding... closer.
The Olds is looking great Freddie !

Nice lines on those cars.
Those wheels look like the "Recall Wheels" of 1971 or 72.
Hang on to them.
Yours are only the 2nd set I've ever seen.

Green is the new black!
She's painted and clear coated. Awaiting a wet sand, polish and then its time to put her back together.
One of the 2 new exhaust ports. Back up lights? Who needs back up lights.
May just have to get it outside in the sun.

Really looks nice!
Gonna be sweet when its done!
I had a '62 and '64 Olds, dash always reminded me of a science fiction movie space ship, the '60 is the same. Looks great!
SWEET! Looking very nice! Joe
Wet sanding done and the polish begins... I'm stoked that she'll be home this weekend if all goes right!
Once home, it's exhaust and old fashioned lowering by 3 inches, then cruise baby!
