Hey, there. 1962 Impala

Hello,
I bought my 1962 Impala SS when I was 19 (for $750). 25 years ago I put it up on blocks. Here I am almost 60 years-old and restoring it. Things have come a long way from scouring wrecking yards for miles around looking for parts. There's this thing called eBay.... The car is in the body shop right now getting the holes filled and a few coats of Roman Red. I'm piecing together the original 327. The Power Glide vanished decades ago so if I can't have the original tranny, I'm going to a four-speed manual. Let the adventure begin. Thanks in advance for any help and I hope to be able to pitch in when I can.
