Hello, just bought a 67 impala ss

Hi my name is nick and i have been looking for a 67 impala ss forever and have found some but none in my price range, well. . . one popped up around lincoln and i jumped on it and i pulled some strings and bought it. Finally, this is my dream car. Plans for the car as of now is restore the car but modernize it as well. it is getting a fuel injected 540ci updated interior, and probably updated suspension.

well here it is for now

Hey congrats on the purchase. I also have a 67 SS that I am restoring so mabye we can shoot each others pointers along the way. I just started on the project. I will warn you up front parts are hard to find, espically body panels. I am not sure if 66 or 68 body panels are interchangeable. Do you know? Send me any questions you may have and I'll help if I can. Also if you find a good parts source let me know cause I and struggling. I have been waiting 2 years to find a 67 SS to upgrade and restore. LOL

Once again congrats,

Good project car. But get it up in the air and check the frame out for rust through first. The frame is the foundation. You can't build on a bad foundation. Many parts interchange on your cars back to 65 and up to 70. But unfortunately not body parts. Good luck with your project and welcome.

i have already looked at everything i work as a mechanic so i knew what to look for before i got it, there is absolutely no rust except surface rust on the frame and suspension the body is a little rough i got a good bumper and different front fenders that have all good chrome on them.

Welcome from another '67 owner. ('cept mine is just a four door hard top.)

It looks like the pooch doesn't know what to make of it just yet. He'll come around when the wind is in his face and his tongue is flappin' in the breeze behind him!

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.

Hey Nick, welcome to the site and congrats on finding your '67. Look forward to seeing how you progress on it.
You might remember me, I have a red '64 SS I brought over to you a couple months ago for an alignment....well it's done and ready to bring back to you. Need to make an appointment.
Anyway, cool find and I'll be in touch.

Hey Nick welcome to the site! I share in your excitement as I just found my budget project 67 as well! Good luck with the restoration, it looks remarkably like mine at the moment

Come see what happens when someone with absolutely no experience attempts to restore a 1967 Impala.
