ABOVE/BELOW....here's a few picts a couple days after purchase. originally a code 63, champagne paint with black vinyl bench seat interior. only options it seems to have had are pwr steering and dual outer mirrors, it was also a radio delete car. looks like a previous owner tried to make it resemble an impala, note the 3 lamp rear bumper and painted outer door window frames.

ABOVE....a tired mess under here, came equipped with a 750 holley carb and intake, '65/'66 exhaust manifolds, the original 6cyl. 2 grv pulley alternator and a noisey gear drive. note the missing belts and crank pulley, which flew off on the way home.
