Hello From a complete Newb :)
I have a 69 impala sport coup that my father in law left me recently. It belonged to his dad when it was new and after he passed sat in a barn for 5 years. It has set in my father in laws garage for several years as well since he couldn't work on it due to illness. I am a fan of the classics but my mechanical skills are very little I am afraid. I would love to bring the old thing back up to snuff. Needless to say it has a lot of sentimental value to us.
Its a 255 hp 350 with 365 foot pounds of torque. It has a 3.07 rear end and 3 on the tree. I would like to get it looking more like an SS though I know it'll never actually be one. It runs well with some shifting issues (shifter feels like its full of molasses) and a gas gauge that doesnt work. I think I have attached a picture here.. at least I hope I have. I am also thinking that the rear springs are shot on it since it sets low in the back. Let me know what you think and of course any advice is welcome!!!
