looks like a clean interior and pretty straight body there. One day I'll have a done interior too!

I always wanted a 2 door post. But finding one with a good body around here is almost impossible.

Tranny was kaput...as well as exhaust...1600.00 replaced both with flowmaster thunder duels put in...what a purrrr...first time using those. You can see the torn up door panel in pic...grams must have had sand-paper hands...can't figure that one out. For a 45 yeard old gal, the interior as original is mindboggling. Grill was shot, bought new one. I was amazed that there was no rust. Under body for some reason was coated in a thin layer of oil which I believe protected from rust. Got lucky there. Grew up on east coast(PA) and I remember pops having a few flinstone mobiles(choking on fumes when we were kids) from the salts. California gets a bad rap...but can't deny it has been kind to preserve the classics. Had a 66 impala when I was 20 and was hooked from then on, buying it from a latino for 300.00 (1984). Drove that thing for a 100k,then sold it for 2k putting nothing in but new tires and gas. Never got over selling that car (lol...some of you know what I mean) so to me redemption shall be mine. The Kids want it...grandbabies want to go for rides...can't wait for her to be finished with paint so I can put it back together...chomping at the bit....life is good.
