See, what you need is a bad mother ****er like this guys 65. 4 doors are parts carsToo bad you're not looking for a 65 Impala 2door. I have a frame off all black coupe with SS interior and all SS trim. It's a full frame off, every nut and bolt restoration that I am being forced to sell. I have some pretty serious medical issues going on and just don't have the time and ability to enjoy it. It is a near flawless car that is mechanically perfect. The undercarriage is as clean as the top. I plan on listing it on this site in a month or so when it comes out of winter storage. You can see pictures if you search on posts by "PALALT".
The price is around $27k US. It's a 327/275 horse with a 200R4, 4 speed overdrive, factory air car. It's a show winner that needs nothing. Anyone interested this spring can message me.
PS. These golden years suck. I'm 66 and falling apart. Not what I had planned for retirement, for sure.
