Hey everybody!

I’ve posted a couple of things here, and lurked even longer, but... now I think I might be learning enough to be a contributing member of the community.

My current project car is a 68 Impala Custom Coupe that was sitting on the side of the road for 10 years. Originally a 327, but when I found the previous owner, he’d just dropped a 350 in her. Too bad it was seized, and was wearing anorexic 1970 heads.

Very, VERY purple paint, as well as a life mostly lived in Arizona, has kept the body & frame are in pretty good shape. That said, I’m overhauling every internal component on her.

I’m restoring her to be a full time daily driver. Currently, I’ve got a full Holly Sniper system, a ATK 355, 12” discs all around, and an overdrive transmission all waiting in boxes for their turn to get bolted in.


Currently, she’s body off frame - semi-rust scrubbed and about half painted inside and out. It’s all about the suspension & steering rebuild currently.


Anyway, glad to be here, and very appreciative of the community around these awesome cars.

See yah on the boards!

Wow man, frame off and everything! And such a collection of parts to go on her! That's some serious undertaking right there! Good luck with the project.
