New member with a 66 Impala SS
Hi guys, as the title says, I'm the excited new owner if a genuine 66 impala SS. She a numbers matching, 396, 4 Spd, 12 bolt posi rear and a genuine 51 thousand miles. She's marina blue (1 respray some time ago) with a blue interior, the exact color combo I was looking for. It's got the factory gauge pack, factory tach, power steer, tilt, power drum brakes, Opticlean bottle and bumper over riders. The only mods are aftermarket headers and the 7" and 8" corvette rallies, which I really like. Ii also has a chevelle or corvette steering wheel of the same era, I'll be searching for a genuine impala wheel to replace at some stage. Apart from that, I'll be keeping her stock and cruising the pants off her!!
It's my second 66, my wife drove a 4 door hardtop in the 90's as our family car. It was a great cruiser and wish we never sold it. Just love these old girls, with the long wheelbase and four coil suspension.
I've also had a number if 55 Chevies over the years.
Looking forward to this forum for info and keeping track on what others are doing with their impalas.
Cheers for now.
