I was sent out of town for work this week and the business that I visited has a 1963 Chevy Impala 4 door out in a field. The car is all there, 327, Powerglide, no A/C, and complete. Due to its location is is rust free and it is straight. It has never been painted and has some really great patina. The bad, it has been sitting for an unknown amount of time, and the interior is shot. All 4 door panels, seats, carpet are all in bad shape. The owner has no interest in it other than it being a parts car and may be willing to sell it on to me for a decent price. I have looked at what it would cost for a new interior and its a lot. $1000 just for the door panels. The question is, would this be worth doing? It is a 4 door and 4 doors have never been popular or had much value, however 2 door cars are bringing prices completely out of my reality. Running and driving, clear coat over the patina and a new interior, would I spend more than it is really worth?
