Ď68 Convertible

Hey everyone,

Iíve had several Impalas over the years. Iíve had this Ď68 convertible for awhile now and Iíve really gotten attached to it, plus the wife likes it so that makes it much easier to spend money and time on it which Iím sure most of us guys can relate.

When I started preparing a plan for a steering and front suspension rebuild and disc brake conversion I found this site. Itís been very helpful reading through threads gaining knowledge. Hereís a few pics of my Ď68. Thanks, Doug

I tried again using a group posting option from my image hosting site, sorry for all the technical stuff showing up. I will go to the test forum later to figure this out. Thanks.

Please let me if you can see them now

Here is the thread I started about the swap I did, 396/TH400 for a 496/T56. Hopefully there is some info you can use.
