This is my Impala SS I've had it since I was 12 [I am the 2nd owner] ,it is a 327 4 speed,with a white top and is completely original ,and no rust! [for those of you in the drier states, that a miracle here!Plans are for a complete ground up restoration.

Oh ,did I mention it was wrecked in 1978?And my dad paid $600 for it(from a Insurance co.)The dealer had owned it from 1972-78 but never transfered the title!

It was sold new in 1966 by Lawson Chevrolet Gaston Indiana,
traded in to DeHart Chevrolet Gaston Indiana in 1972,
bought wrecked by my dad in 1978 from DeHart Chevrolet.

I have since spoke to the original owners,that still live in the same house,they got a kick out of seeing the photos I sent them!

    Love those old cars but I remember going to dealership with my Dad when we bought a new 62 Impala and traded a 57 Chevy in for it . I think the 57 which was yellow was to small for all of us . Thanks for sharing ! and I love the out buildings and as a background . Great Photo !

    I wish my backyard had your barns and out buildings in it :-) The car would be a nice touch too ! What great history !

    I hope you changed the motor mounts, lol, yeh, I'm that old, and a old chevy man. I broke the motor mounts in my mothers 65 impala doing burnouts back around 1973.

    I crashed my Dad's 62 Impala on way to a High school play I was in . But I had to still go on stage and was terrified from car accident . I had by lic for only a mo :-(
    Thank goodness the car was getting older then . And yrs later he gave it to me and I drove till the doors fell off :-) Great Memories and EJW I burned gravel coming out of our driveway to get onto a highway as my Dad stood and watched it . You had to get out fast as there a hill and you could not see oncoming traffic well I hit that pedal and whoa I hit the car behind hill and knocked it off road into a field . Thankfully no one was hurt .
