I'm always happy to show off my baby. It's great that I can see her every day now that she's in Chicago with me.



Now how did this get in here?

Impala_Paul,

Welcome to ChevyTalk!!

That's a very nice looking '60 hardtop. Is it an Impala or a BelAir? Sorry to ask that question, but it's hard to tell without the exterior trim. Can you give us the particulars of this vehicle? Motor, trans, suspension and/or other modern upgrades and conveniences, and do you have additional shots of the interior you can share with us?

Chuck

Chuck, Here is a better Pic of how my Impala was a few months ago. I am changing out the 350 with a new World Products Aluminum 409 it was build by Lamar Walden. it had a Power glide in it now it will have a CTI 700R4 I changed out the rearend with a Currie 9" for brakes I went with the Wilwood 6 Piston Calipers with 2" drop spindles along with Ride Tech's Stage 3 Air Ride system. Ciadella Interior's had done the interior I went Black with 1959 stripes insted of the 1960 houndstooth. Dave Kosmann is working on the trim and I should get it in a few weeks. I will install a new wire harness from Amerian Auto wire and new gauges Classic Instruments

Now that's a beautiful 4-door Sport Sedan. Can you tell us about the emblem on the front fender? I don't recognize it as being common-place. Thanks for sharing the pictures!!


I installed aftermarket universal fender indicators and under them installed the 1964 to 1967 Fender "V" Crossed Flag Emblem

Hello I'm Rance living in southcentral Alaska. I have finally found and bought a 60 Impala. There are not many of these in this state! It needs a bit of TLC, and I'm unsure if it's just a 4 door hardtop or a sport sedan or what...but I look forward to many miles and many smiles in this car!

Here is my 60 flat top. 283 3 on the tree. Brainstorming on whether or not I should lower the car, rims, tires, etc... or leave it as it is.
