I have both the '65 SS convertible (bought in 1996) and '67 convertible (bought in 1992) and honestly prefer both over any other year. The '65 was bought with an original 70k miles, original paint, etc. It's not getting touched and may one day get passed down to my daughter.
The '67 however was bought while in the Navy in Maine/New Hampshire and already had some patches done. Drove it all the way home to Texas, no problems. Couple years later started having issues, so started working on it just before my career got really busy and got married and bought a house and started a family and ....... (you get the idea)
-Fuel pump went out so I learned to rebuild the engine (~1993-94) and did it (still sitting on the engine stand in garage, wrapped up)
-rebuilt the Powerglide while I had it out (~1994)
-started some bodywork (~1994), got a job offer (1995) and moved cities for career (bought a house, etc)
-bench seats recovered, seal wrapped and placed in garage (~1996)
-bought a business (~1999), things are looking up
-frame starting to rust, replaced/repaired frame (~1998), installed PST front suspension, body mounts, and disc brake conversion (~2000)
-DotCom implosion (~2001, lost a lot of $$$ in that) business went downhill from there
-everything came to a screeching halt and has stayed there since (it's been a long time digging ourselves out of that economic turndown)
trunk lid, hood, most of the trim work, entire front clip, firewall, under rear seat pan, doors, glass, upper rear quarters
floor pans, trunk pans, lower rear quarters, dash under windshield
I don't mind doing the work myself because as Big Dave said, it's a hobby. If I had to do this for a living there would be no joy in it. The problem is I've never done bodywork. My expectations over the years have gone from clean restoration ("Bondo? I don't THINK so!") to nice job to "I'd like it to be a solid driver I can learn on". I think there's a good project here but just don't know. I know one of the biggest problems is just getting the sheetmetal and I know it is NOT cheap. I also have the Hollander Interchange 39th Edition manual so I know very little sheetmetal interchanges between 65-70 and within the various models.
Ideally, I'd like to find another '67 to salvage but, as mentioned, these beasts are rare and I would hate to cut up another survivor. But finding another survivor in better shape with a bad frame? I have no problem combining two (or three) if necessary
I've got pics but there's nothing quite like in-person inspection from a knowledgeable hobbyist who knows these vehicles
