66 Impala 396 from Virginia

I just got this big block car.. Normally I am a 66-67 Chevelle or Nova guy.. or 67-73 Camaro guy.. This is my first big body car.. very nice and clean.. previous owner installed a new cam.. lifters.. roller rockers.. So i need to install intake .. accessories.. and break in the cam... Very clean car..

It has the wrong year front buckets.. 65.. and no console so leads are appreciated...

Welcome to the Tem Darrell!


I fixed your post (edited it) and deleted your request to edit. Just like with the other Team boards after about seven to ten minutes you can no longer edit your posts. The way I got wrangled into being a mod on these two boards is a desire to fix my spleling erores I only find upon rereading my posts. I am so dyslexic I have walked into a bra for a drink.

I really like it Darrell, and welcome to the site.
The color does look a bit too 'rich' a shade of blue for a stock mid-60' GMs, but I like it anyway. I'm a fan of most blues.

The interior is interesting too eh? A little bit of a throwback with the velour (?), big tach and shifter. A big heavy hot-rod!

I have no leads on seats. What area are in from Darrell?

Welcome. You should be able to trade your 65 seats for 66 seats. Your 65 seats are very desirable.

Thanks for the response guys. Not sure of the color blue. Looks cool in person. The velour is horrible. I'll recover what ever seats I get to a basic black. Once I get the seats I'll start working on it.

Definitely looking to trade these seats so please send leads.
