Just found site,

Forward to getting to know some other full body enthusists. I have an all original 74 Imapala sedan, it was bought by my mothers great aunt in Misoula, MT and has been in the family since, I am the 4th owner. It has 53k on it. I got it fall of 05 and haven't had the chance to do much with it yet, I want to keep it as factory original as I can, so I will be looking for any and all NOS parts I can find to do the resto on it. Doesn't need much but I do want to get going on it before the little bit of surface rust starts to become holes. I have all service records for it and also the original bill of sale and dealer window sticker. Once I get it washed and cleaned out from sitting I'll get some pics posted.

Sweet Thanks for the info, I will be making contact with him once I decide where to start. Mainly need a door and trunk seals to start with then gonna probably blast the hood and trunk lid since they are the only places that there is rust forming at the moment.

Welcome to the Team Neil!

Full size indeed. The 1971 - '76 models where the biggest cars that Chevy ever made. Today's full size pick-up get out of your way. Does it have the 400 or a 350 for motivation as these smog era motors didn't have a lot of power (that part can be fixed and it will still look stock on the outside).

It's got the Turbo Fire 400 2bl and the TH350, Definitely underpowered for what it is due to all the emissions crap, but all that crap if still functional and gonna stay. I have an 82 Jeep Scrambler and a 73 CJ5 that are for modifying.
