New to Forum.

Hi Guys
I am new to site, my dad owned a Impala many years ago. Saw photos of it and LOVED it !! Now i found a pillarless Chev Caprice with simetrical round tail lights ? Is it i good buy ? Needs a good paint and seat restoration. It is a RHD model as well ? Would this mean the car is from Australia ? BTW i am from South Africa. I am 44 and in the Millwright trade. Married with 3 kids.

Welcome to the Team Rynhardt!

That would be a good guess as Australia was exporting a lot of cars back then under license from GM.

Welcome to the site!!

Symettrical lights were used on a handful of years, but all of them are pretty cool. I think you should get it make sure it never goes to a junkyard or recycling yard.
