  • Future HRPT car

    Been kinda looking for over a year off and on, the boy's are taller, John's wheelchair is bigger, and well we've maxed out the room in the 11 SS. So the other night bam there it was, 68 Impala one of the cars on my list one trip to look at it and I made an offer, although it needs rear quarters and a little floorboard and trunk work the car is pretty solid. Best part also is it is intact, all the trim is there and not bent up and it also runs like a sewing machine.

      This is not Roadkill...I think Perry and company will do much better with a LSA and six speed manual... ridetech suspension and beautifully restored bodywork...

              Just like all my rides drive it everywhere! Main goal is to be my Hot Rod Power Tour car. Rational probably not, already getting poke in the side about going LS but I'm old school.

                Ridetech suspension, yep you're on target on that one! It's gonna like curves. And also clean lines with an aggressive stance but not to low.

                      Close, probably an 1-1 inches lower, gun metal gray. Right now it's got a bench seat which is perfect but I'm thinking dark graphite leather and possibly buckets. Got awhile to throw idea's around, right now I'm finishing the bodywork on the 69 SS Camaro which is slated for PT next year. Big block 4-speed, if all goes well with my left foot it will determine what trans the Impala gets.

                        That will be a very cool ride when you get it done. Sounds to me like you are beginning to have quite the collection - where do you park them all?

                            That's badass! I love old GM land yachts. Will be paying close attention to this one.
                            I'm sure Scott Liggett will be happy to see another big GM saved too.

                              I have a 6.0 LS motor, but when I compared the price of building it vs. an old-school 427 for my Corvette, the 427 was the better, budget item (as much as a BB can be 'budget').
