Welcome to the Team Don!

I am an engine builder but that part is done. Any other questions ask away.

Nice car to work with. I can't even remember the last time I was in a 67, I forgot how big the gauges are. I bet you could actually see the needle move on the gas gauge driving it down the road. It's simply amazing that these cars can still be found and in this condition. Welcome to the site Don.

Late in responding - thanks for the welcomes. Been busy with inspections at work. Any advice on repairing gauges? None of them work! I know how to put gas in and change the oil. Pretty much it.

Welcome to the site, I love the 67's!

You probably have 3 options on the gauges.

1. Remove yours and send them to a shop like "Redline Gauges" where they can 'restore' your gauges for you.
2. Try Ebay for a used set. (still a small gamble there.....)
3. Buy new at any of a half dozen Impala parts retailers like YearOne, Classic Impala, Hubbards, Impala Bob, etc. (speaking of Impala Bob, he may have a used set too and he'd make sure they work probably)

You probably have a dash wiring problem sense it affects all the gauges. Could be a bad or corroded connection or a ground problem.

Welcome aboard.
I had a new 67 327 four speed with a bench seat. When I ordered it I had to put $200 down because the dealer said if I didn't take it nobody would. Funny, the day I got the car somebody did take the car that night and burned out the clutch and put 10% wear on the rear tires. That turned out to be a troublesome car after that. Insurance fixed it but it never seemed like a new car.
Good luck with yours.

Yes I bought it brand new. It cost $2700. What a beautiful car it was. It had a 327 cu in 250 hp with a bench seat and a four speed. It was not really fast but was fun to drive. I kept it two years then traded it for a new 69 Chevelle convertible. That car was fast. Good luck with yours.
