Hi guys, I want to introduce my self very shortly. I´m living in the north of Germany and I´m interested in US cars since 20 years.
Two years ago I saw the 69 Impala convertible and I knew from the start; I WANT THAT CAR. Here in Germany you see a lot of Mustangs on the road, but the 69 Impala is rare, especially as a convertible.
Finally I bought it and now I´m restoring it part by part.
Here we are a little group of guys with the same hobby, US cars.
In that group are following cars:
72 Mustang Mach 1
68 Chrysler 300
95 GMC truck
69 Impala convertible
Last year I refurbished the front axle, with new bushings (energy suspension), bearings, new brakes, springs, shock absorber, replaced the steering gear box and so on.
This spring I´m working on the steering (interrieur), and want to replace the brake master cylinder (drum/drum brakes) and the complete brake lines (there is something wrong).
Next winter I´ll work on the underbody and the rear axle.
For me in Europe it´s not so easy to find the right parts, so it would be great if I could get some information in this thread.
Is there a GM part list availble for the 69 convertible? That would really help me to find the right parts in the internet. I´m actually searching the following parts:
Sterring (non tilt, pictures attached)
- steering lock plate
- horn contact, turn signal canceling cam
- horn pin, spring and bushing set
- combination valve drum/drum
I think that´s enough for the first thread.
Thanks a lot and have nice day....
