Hello from Wyoming

Hello I just joined team Impala! I have been rebuilding cars for several years as my wife watched. Thankfully she caught the bug a while back and started looking at cars she liked. She decided on the 65 Impala convertible and her name is Paula hence the name 65 Impaula. I found one a week ago bought it along with a 4 door parts car and stuck it in the garage to start tearing it apart. This is after I took my 51 Merc out that I have been working on for years but I think I better put hers on the fast track.

The convert is decent but I need to replace some of the pans but rockers, frame etc are solid. I am going to have plenty of questions going ahead as I have never taken an Impala apart before.

Looking forward to getting to know people here and working on the project.

Jim

I love 65's. I actually just bought a 66 because I'm tired of looking for the right 65 lol.

I happen to be very fond of convertibles and a 65 is a good looking car.
