welcome to the site.....

There's at least 6 different places selling Impala parts that I know of, all with catalogs and/or online websites. (year one, classic industries, Harmons, Impala Bob's, Lutty's and more)

Welcome to the Team Rob!

Ask away as to what you need and we can help you find a part or explain your other choices if it isn't remanufactured.

The hardest thing is after a long day doing other peoples cars is to start on my own but i'm gonna find the time and the energy somehow,every body sounds eager to help.Dont forget i know a little bit about the restorations mostly body and paint as i have done it for a living for 30 plus years so if i can help ask away.

Rob I know motors; been building them for years. I can't paint a Weber grill without runs, drips, and errors; so I have given up trying. I no longer rebuild trannies or rear ends but I remember how to do it. It is just easier on me to farm it out even though I still have all the needed tools to do it.

I hear ya big dave, the good news for me is i have a 63,000 mile 68 that has every clip clamp nut screw trim piece etc i can fix the little bit of rust without replacing panels cept for the right fender there must have been battery issues cuz that corner is the worst i can fix it but would rather replace it if i could find one no luck yet,plenty to keep busy till then.
