    That's what I remember, buckets by Barcalounger.
     
  14. Check the frame in front of the back wheels. I had a 66 and that was where they would rust and may be why it was parked.

    I woulda' hauled it home!

    I'd refurbish the stock interior, drop in a 496 with a TH400 and a 3.08 posi, leave the paint as-is after a good scrubbing!

    Used to be one of those that ran street class at a local track. Bright apple green, they always called it the green lizard. Had a small block, 283 or 327, and a power glide. Wouldn’t take off for shit, but had a surprisingly good top end. Fooled a lot of faster cars....

    I love it.I've had a few through the years. 65s and 66s. I love the lines on the 65 more. My favorite combo looks like this one off the web, very simplistic, solid black, poverty caps, and lots of motor. 40772.jpg
     
  23. I had a 65 with SWIVEL buckets out of a 70’s GM. It was cool! You know the early ones came with 409’s!

    Open the doors, get a couple rolls of quarters and wash that baby up. Looks like a super solid start from the outside

    Bought one new in 65--really liked that car. 283 with a 3 speed-ran it in pure stock class (I/S?)at the drags and drove it daily.
