I have been reading a lot in this forum,now its time to join.As a great fan of old american cars, I'm owner of 3 Impalas projects.The Impalas are 2 x'61 's(Bubbletop ,4dr sport sedan) and a '68 fastback.
I've bought the '68 not long ago-the previous owner died,the family sold the car...
He had it for 30+ years.It is very unusual (I think),because it is a fastback and has the L6 250 engine from factory.I did not know they made a 2dr with a L6 (embarassing...)I thought about swapping in a V8 and front bucket seats ,but I'm not shure any more..
I just might leave it the way it came from the factory,even if the drivetrain is not what people expect.Maybe just fix it up and give it the needed repaint in its original maroon color?
What would you all do,when you find an original car like this?
(I do have more cars with V8-so I think I could leave this one alone and save it)
Do you think there were build a lot of these?
please excuse my english-just can't do any better..
