I finally dug out some old photos from the 1970's and these are the only photos of my high school car that I built out of 3 1963 chevy's. In the 3rd photo you see the 1st one I bought and the 62 chevyII I was driving in the background. The 2nd 63 I bought had a 283 with 3 on the floor hurst that I pulled and put in the car in the 3rd photo. I then found a 63 SS in a junk yard and put that interior in the car. I put chrome reverse rims on it and dual exhaust with cherry bombs and had a lot of fun with this car and even ran it at the local Drag Strip for fun on Friday nights. Sure wish I still had it.

    Oh Man gargoylecollector, was yours a true SS ? I had that SS console and chrome shifter plate like yours in mine, the SS I found in the junk yard was Black with red pinstripes and Aqua blue interior the same as mine, I think I paid $15 for the seats and the console that I put in mine :)
  8. gargoylecollector gargoylecollector, 11 months ago
    Yep, a real SS!The '63 is my 2nd favorite Impala!Mine had buckets (black interior) and the console also,it was definitely rare and restorable,but I have too many!
