1965 Impala Vert from the UK

Hello chaps - last year i picked up a 1965 impala convertible (it's on hyrdaulics - sorry...been into lowriders for years and it's my third one)

It's currently in my garage having a little winter refresh for 2012 but would really like to trace some info about it stateside if anyone can point me in the right direction!

this is the info off the vin plate

ST 65 - 16467 BODY BA 794
TR 814 2
ACC C60

and here's me motor



One day i plan a full strip down and rebuild but that can wait till i have a little more money as with gas at around $11 a gallon over here - she's a little gold digger to run

Cheers

Graeme

Welcome, How long has your 65 been in the United Kingdom? At 11.00 a gallon I couldn't drive it much either.

Hey cheers for the kind comments guys! Think the impala has been in the UK for around 10 years - it was juiced over here. Yeah man $11 dollars a gallon is a bitch but this is just my summer/weekend car have got an 02 c class benz diesel to do my daily hauling. Born and bred in the UK have been into lowriders for years - think the first one i saw was on escape from new york, the dukes car. It's pretty hard scene over here as the parts for yank cars and the hydraulics are hard to come by - have been over to the vegas super show 3 times last year being the most recent
