My impala dream

Hi. I'm an aussie gal and recently acquired and am restoring my dream 67 Impala. She is a factory RHD which makes her extra special and she's had 53 years of neglect. But despite a little cough in her engine and a few bubbles in her paint she's just perfect to me. I will spend my life giving her all the love and attention she deserves. Yes this aussie gal is proud.. my dream since 14.. that's 30 years of hard work and extra hard saving. ...

Welcome to the Team Lisa!

That is what I call dedication. I know how hard it is to get parts past customs, not to mention freight costs and time waiting in a two day or less Amazonian world. Best of luck. Maybe we can help keep false starts and wrong parts down by asking the members what might be wrong before you throw parts a problem as so happens here with first time rebuilders.

Hi Lisa, welcome to the site.

Super happy for you to get your dream car. Love the RHD as well! Maybe some of the other Aussie's here on the forum will chime in and with some luck they will be not too far away.

Very cool. Would love to know what else was different about RHD cars. The '67 was my first love and started me down the road of a lifetime interest in Chevrolet B-bodies. Ask away - lots of knowledge on this site. Post pics when you can and don't be shy. No one here is going to give you grief about the condition your car is in. Hell, a RHD '67 has to be one of the rarest cars on here... Welcome.

Welcome to the Forum!

A RHD Impala does sound like it would be fun. Would love to see pictures of that.
