1960 4 door Sedan

Hi. I've been a member for a few years but I haven't been her since the project has been on hold. I recently bought a 1990 Corvette Convertible and put a new motor in it. Up and running fine now. It got my juices flowing to get on my Impala. I plan on getting it to move under it's own power as soon as possible. Will add discs up front and a 200 4 R tranny. I have a new tank and fuel lines, hard lines for the brakes so far. It needs a complete interior rehab - that's something I know NOTHING about. I will pretty much let the car dictate where it wants to go. I can't seem to come up with a clear plan for this one. It should be fun and a heck of a lot easier than working on that damned Vette.

If you like EFI and feel comfortable with it a LS-x motor makes more power per cube than any other motor built by GM to date. The Impala engine bay will swallow a truck motor with no dificulty (something you can not do with a smaller car).

Interiors are not to tough. You just need a handful of cheap special tools to take everything apart since it was designed to pop together with push in plastic retainers. Ask specific questions about each part you want to remove as they all have different techniques and tools for removing the part so you can reuse them again.
