Smile Hi from New Zealand

Hi


From New Zealand, had mixed results importing cars from the US so gave up, it was starting to get a little expensive as well.
Found my current ride here in New Zealand a 1968 Impala Sports Coup on around 130,000 miles and original it was imported
in 1991 so its been here for 28 years.



Shes well worn but nice so thanks in advance for the questions and information I'll bee seeking to keep her running well.

The only departure from original is the power-glide trans has been swapped out now has a Turbo 350 attached to the 327



Apart from cars I collect a few license plates, enamel signs and other garage stuff


Cheers bigears (Andy)

Thanks guys been having a look about wonderful site! with lots of features and not to hard to navigate .........

Very happy I found it as my 68 is a keeper so I'll be around for a while as I have a little work to do and
knowledge to gain to enable the work to happen.

Thanks yes it caught my eye it was either a 65 or 68 for me and I got lucky

Previous was a 1960 NZ new Canadian Belair (not enough tail lights) which was cool but needing more love than I had time for. It ended up in Auckland got flipped a couple of times in quick succession going up in price each time, one of the flippers painted the bottom out cream/white ......



Your 64 looks like a nice straight original ride nice CA plates......
