She is pretty rough, but still has a lot of parts on her. Once I get my 63 to the body shop I will probably pull this in the garage and strip her and cut her up. Just look at that dash trim, they don't make dash trim like that anymore. Starting some research to know what is what. I'm hoping to keep the rear end as a spare and I pulled the manual front steering rack as I'm thinking of converting to manual to avoid having to find the correct W motor power steering pump brackets and pulleys.

Nice parts car.

Remember, every part in good condition or better is worth saving.

And even sometimes in Fair or worse to boot.

seems to be in shockingly decent condition for its age!


great find.
If the floors were not completely gone and the frame pretty rough I would build it for a drag car. Most of the lower sheet metal quarter repairs are just straight steel with a slight curve, easy enough to fab up. I'm shocked at the lack of aftermarket for 1960 Impala's. They make a lot of stuff for 58-59 and then they skip 60. A lot of parts for 61-62 as well. Of course 63-64 are the bodies with almost every part imaginable made.

I love parts cars. An entire car for the price of a part. The ability to learn exactly how to remove a part. Helping others that need a part. Scrap value when done.

Although when I'm done with a car, it won't even look like it was a car, lol.

I save everything possible.

I have some pretty stripped out cars, but haven't hauled one off yet in just about 30 years of collecting.
