65 SS 396 Impala Resto...Finally
Just joined the forums and this is just what I was looking for. After 32 years I am finally starting the restoration on my dad's 65 SS. He was killed in a car crash in December in St. Louis and I am doing his old car as a tribute. He bought in new at Weber Chevrolet in St. Louis. I will be posting pics and other information as I photograph or scan it in. It is a great source for decoding as I have the original bill of sale, POP and obviously the car. He ordered it with the 325 horse 396 and TH400. It is Glacier Gray with black vinyl top and black interior. It has A/C PS PB and electric windows. It has a Holley with dual exhast and Special Suspension equipment. He drove to Colorado a lot so he ordered it with a 2.76 gear in the 12 bolt. Other stuff, am radio, comf and conv. group, tinted glass and he told me it came with 7.75x14 tires and he waited when he picked it up because it was supposed to have 8.25 tires with a white stripe. He parked it in 1978 when he bought a new Blazer. I have drug this car around the country with me through college and law school and my move from St. Louis to Orlando. I am finally getting around to restoring it. I look forward to sharing this with everyone.
