Here's my 69 SS-427. It is a factory bench w/column shift. I found it about 16 years ago. It was quite rusty and yellow. I couldn't handle that color so I decided it needed to be black. It now resides in my garage just collecting dust :-(



Voted most likely to end up working at a car wash.

I've always liked Chevys but even as a young teenager I always had a thing for the oddball models. While the Novas and Camaros were cool, I would get tingly feelings when I'd see an Impala or some less-cool Chevy. So when I started searching for my "hot rod" in the summer of '97, I knew I wanted an older full-size Chevy between 65-69. I've also always had a thing for the Plain Janes. There's just something about a plain, unassuming Biscayne or Bel Air attracts me to them. I was thinkin' I'd go for a 65 model as I've always thought those were the best-looking, best-proportioned late 60s full-size Chevy. But I stumbled across a listing for a nice 67 Bel Air and figured I'd at least look at it. It was a bit out of my price range but the seller also had this 68 Biscayne sitting beside it for about $1400 less. And that was that.

She started out as a 307/PG/3.36 10 bolt car. And over the years I've very slowly swapped out all those key components for the sake of speed and durability. It was originally silver (kind of a neat/odd color for a Biscayne) but had suffered a bad, white repaint well before I bought it.

My goal is to be a one-car guy and slowly build and restore this car into a nice all-around performer by the time I retire.

And in the meantime, I try to drive it every weekend (with my girls in the back and wife beside me) and hit the strip 2-3 times a year for some fun runs.

It's an Ivy Gold Bel-Air with 54,000 original miles. I lowered it 2", removed the 307/PG and dropped a 454 (which I'm not happy with)/700R, 373 limited-slip 12 bolt, B. F. Goodrich 245/60R15 white lettered tires on 15X7 steel color keyed rims w/ factory dog dish hub caps all around. Close ratio steering box. 4-wheel disc brakes w/a chrome electric master cylinder, heavy duty springs, Hotchkis upper/lower trailing arms and swaybars (front and rear). Hooker Headers w/Flowmasters, 2-1/4" full exhaust out the corners.

The interior is all stock and original (Ivy Gold), except for a tach on the column and some gauges under the dash.

I found it on eBay approx. 3 1/2 years ago. Flew out to N.C. on a Thursday evening, liked what I saw, good price, drove it back home to Vegas by that Sunday night. Averaged 11 mpg.

The first time I watched "White Lightning", I thought that was a cool idea of a hi-performance engine in a 4-door. Something different, and who would suspect!
I only like the 4-door post roof lines of the fullsize '65-'70 Chevy, and '67-'72 F***.

Ok, ok... it's not a Chevy, more a hybrid as most know the Canadian Pontiac. Pontiac body. trim and dash, with a Caprice steering wheel, door panels. Chevrolet wiper configuration, pure Chev chassis and drivetrain. Purists might not like it, but the'd have to agree, it's unique.

But I think it's a cool piece of Canadiana with a history...

It's a '67 Grande Parisienne 4dr HT sharing the same front and back treatment as the USA 2 Dr GP. Built early June 1967 in Oshawa Ontario, delivered a week later to the USSR embassy in Ottawa directly through GM Canada diplomatic sales. No dealership involved as the Russians obviously wanted no tampering. Kept by the embassy for one year. Sold in Aug '68 with 10007 miles on the clock to the next owner who kept it till 2006. No winters since '70. At the time of his passing in '06, his daughter inherited it and sold it in '08 to the fourth owner who I bought it from just two weeks ago with 56500 miles showing.

Well, here is my 70 Caprice. That car was near my home since I don't remember. When I discover old car passion, it was my dream car. I often visit the owner at 10 or 12 to know if it was for sale. At 20, it was for sale, so it was my time to own it(I'm the 5th owner)! After few weeks, I understood what was a clean car and a 20 footer car... Car had a severe accident in the 80's, then it was restored but poorly. So it's a daily driver but I put a 454 in it to enjoy it more! Car looks to be black but it's a dark green non stock color.


The other one is my first restoration project. A kind of rare(3458 units build) and canadian only model. A 70 Bel Air Sport Coupe. I saw it for sale on internet then see it once and bought it(2002) from the 2nd owner who just bought it 2 months ago from the original owner. It was parked since 1980. Car had been oiled every year so it was not rusted all over like up north cars. 350 2 bbl with TH350, map mirror light, courtesy lights, HD suspension(not F41). All matching numbers with documentation. I found the build sheet but it is not readable since it was spoiled with oil... I restored it stock original with all my knowledge and much help from CT. Thanks guys!

This is my 67 Impala that I bought of a 92 y/o woman for $2500, the interior is all original, being a Northeast car it had some rust on the qtrs and front lower fenders. Spent all summer replaced the sheetmetal, stripped the paint, complete re-paint the original Ermine White except basecoat clearcoat . 15x8 Rallyes shot metallic silver with clear, and radial T/A's. Ran a new dual exhaust with turbo mufflers of the original 283 which was just cleaned up. I love the looks I get in this car.

Here are my '68 and '69 SS427 cars. The '68 is a national prize winning restored car that was last shown at the NIA convention this past August held in Charlotte, NC. The '69 is my current project and is presently apart. The body is back on the frame and the engine and trans are built and on a stand ready to be mated to the chassis as well.

Wow,
Those are some nice ars so far. Keep them comming. Mine is not quite finished and many of you have seen pitures of my progress. I thought I would add a few to share.
This project was basically a field car. I think it had been sitting since 1979 when I got it a few years ago. I thought it was a unique combination of colors and options. It was very complete, unmolested but rough. It is in the middle of a complete frame off. There are a few more parts to assemble.
Soon it will be back to its original state. Factory triple black 1967 SS, 327 TH400, PW, Tilt, gages, 8 track.

I've had this car for nine years now; got it in high school locally when I was 16. After finishing college I have started working on it and recently completed a cross country trip (made it!). The pic is from Tioga pass (Hwy 120 facing east) as I'm entering Yosemite NP. Nothing like cruising these babies at 75 on the interstate for days on end! This car/trip has inspired me to want to get a career restoring classic cars.

Here's my '68 (figured it was about time I shared a pic). Bought her in the fall, after having lusted for about 9 years. Previous owner purchased from the original owner, who had barely driven and kept in the garage, so she's really only been outdoors for the last 10 years. She's parked outside still, and no work done yet, but that's the plan for this spring and summer. Got a few rust spots to take care of, and interior needs some work (especially the carpets), but otherwise I'd say she's doing real good. Can't wait for the rain to go away (thankfully no snow this winter, Olympics be damned, lol), so I can give a proper buff and shine to her.

Ok, here's my 67 Biscayne






I've had it for 27 years and it started life as a 6 cyl., Powerglide car. It has manual steering and brakes and the next step is to convert to a manual trans. It's powered by a 433 cu.in. big block with a solid roller, Aluminum heads, and topped by a TBS 10-71 blower with BG Gold Claw 975 cfm blower carbs. A Turbo 400 with 10" converter and a 12 bolt with 3.73's round out the package. She has undergone a frame off resto and the only thing left, is the interior. Which I hope to have finished this year.

Pic#1&2: Found the Impala on eBay May 2008 sittin' a bit outside LA, CA.

Pic#3: Bought it and had it shipped from LA (via Houston, TX) to Denmark, Europe. It arrived here July/August 2008.

Pic#4&5: Due to some damages from careless shipping, it just sat in my garage until summer 2009. By Oct 2009 it went clean through inspektion with new springs, shocks, bushings, brakeparts and a new custommade trailer/camper-hitch.

The last snow disappeared here some weeks ago and I'm now waitin' for a go-ahead from the import-tax-office to get the Impala proper registered for the road. Meanwhile I'm workin' on the exhaust and ignition plus a few other details. It also needs a good polish/cleaning and some decent wheels/tyres.

More to come .... I guess ....

She is a 1967 Imapala that I have owned for the past 13 years.

When I bought her highschool she had a 307/PG with 3.36 gears. Over the past 4 years I've rebuilt the drivetrain, suspension and brakes to make her safer, but quicker.

Thankfully my wife has become attached to her as well, so working on her is a much easier sell.

Thanks, Tom.

My Grandfather bought this 1968 Impala SS in 1972 here in Indiana. The car came from California and was traded in to a local car dealer in Bloomington. It has been garage kept ever since. It is all original from the paint to the interior to the 396. It has a few options. Air, tilt, pw, ps, pb, remote mirror, shoulder belts, tinted windows and 12 bolt rearend. Probably more options? It is alot of fun to drive.
