Hey all, my name is John.
I just got myself a 67 Impala SS for 2500, i am pretty excited about it even if I am getting flak from friends and family right now I know that someday it will be the envy of all them.
Here is the beast
Now then, things I have noticed and I should prolly fix fast:
-19 inch tires seem a little big, i hear grinding and rubbing. Its got air ride but the front is not wanting to rise all the way up. I believe that either smaller tires or wheel block due to them bowing in. On top of that it really needs an alignment
-Engine stalling, i think its just the carborator needs adjustment. It will rev up fine most of the time and if i do it before I drive it seems to be fine. So if left idle too long it may stall if i press on the pedal hard.
-Gauges, have not really been able to pay a lot of attention to them but they seem to not work. New wiring? Needle on the gear selector looks off as well.
-Engine runs great when it doesnt stall.
-Cosmetically it has very little rust and the interior is not all that bad off. Seats are bad and foam is ok but the vinyl is royally messed up but amazingly the top of the dash is great. No cracks in any of the glass. Door handles and keyholes shaved off for the remote door popper.
-Speakers were removed for the compressor to use air ride. Radio is gone as well, bummer.
-All the lights work
-Carb was rebuilt.
- 327 small block
- 350 turbo trans shifts good
- 19 inch wheels with air ride front and back.
Anyhow any comments, questions, opinions and help will be greatly appreciated. I am new to all this restoration business. I hope I picked a fairly gentle car to start with.
