So I drug this home today.
been sitting in a back yard about 20 years. All it needs is everything.
Looks Straight ,not all danged up ! Doesnt take much to make us smile !!! NICELY DONE
Always one of my favorites!
What a find good luck with it
Nice save. These cars have nice lines.
All it needs is new air shocks and L60-15s.
You coulda parked it a little better.
Good score, great body style.
I like it
Better clean the seats before your Avatar gets in...
Torque converter on the hood...always a good sign.
Had one of those thirty years ago. Widest car i ever had. ss with 283 powerglide. Huge inside and out. Great find.
I thought this thread was going to be about finding Jesus!!
That's what I remember, buckets by Barcalounger.
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.
A nice healthy big block and varoom carom .
Those make great sleds
Time to get out the scrub brush and soap and water and see what that puppy looks like under the crud layer.
Just like some junkyard/field cars...some of us are beyond salvation.
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!
Nice ! Like it, Back in the day had a 64 and a 65 Impala SS, both 327 4 speed cars. Now we see the before, hopefully you'll post the after. Have at it.
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.
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.
I'm starting on it between rain. Floors are gone trunk has a couple holes right quarter is bad. Was a 327 car. Engine is gone but trans is hanging in there lol.
And if you don't, and she sits in it anyway, I'm offering to help brush her off afterward. You know, taking one for the team...just trying to help.
Oh yeah, and nice start...always loved them boats.
she's a dandy...the car too
The floors are really bad. Guess I could order some of the flex seal I see advertised on the TV. Lol
