Hello all,

I am new to the forum. I recently purchased a 1967 Impala and will begin the complete restoration and modification when I return from deployment. This will not be a return-to-factory restoration, but a modification to make the car my own. My plan is to complete an LS Swap (408 Stroker) from the 283 that is in her now. I will also upgrade the brakes to a four-wheel disk brake system and upgrade the suspension. The intent of this note is to introduce myself and grow my network of Impala enthusiasts. I, by no means, am an expert in vehicle restoration and will be completing research and taking copious notes throughout the entire process; from taking the body off the frame thru the first break-in period. With that being said, I hope that I can learn from each of you and I can keep everyone posted on the development of my project. Thanks in advance everyone.

Chad

Welcome to the Team!

Have you considered buying a burned or rolled C4 or a C5 Corvette? It has a modular front and a rear sub frame that could be attached to your middle frame section under the cabin as that would make installing the engine, trans, brakes, and everything else a lot easier.

Big Dave,

I have not considered that. I was unaware that would be an option. I will have to conduct some research to see how that would work? Thank you for your feedback.
