One owner, frame off rebuild of a 1964 Impala Sport Coupe. My father purchased Impala from Walker Chevrolet, Tacoma, Washington.
The restoration started in 1996. The Impala has been garaged since this time and has not seen wet weather.
The 327 was rebuilt and up graded from the 250hp to 300hp by installing a 30-30 Duntov cam, 194 heads, Carter AFB with Edelbrock intake manifold and 2 1/2 inch dual exhaust. Uses a HEI distributor and one wire alternator. Both the engine wireing and light wireing were replaced.
The transmission is the original powerglide which has been service by Reliable Transmission. The rearend is stock, with the third member replaced before 1996 rebuild.
With the body off frame. The frame was completely cleaned and painted. There were no major issues other than a small rust area around the two rear body mount holes which were corrected. New shocks were added front and back. The front end was rebuilt. New brake drums, pads,springs and actuator assemblies were also replaced. New BF Goodrich Tires were added with new chrome rims and baby moons. The spare tire is also chrome with orignal jack.
The body was completely taken apart. The doors, the hood, the fenders and trunk lid. The rust was minor in most areas. Those that needed repairing were taken to the autobody shop. The floors were solid except for one dollar sized hole on the drivers side. The floors were painted and sound deading added. Original carpet was added later.
A new fuel tank and inlet hose was added as well as new body mount pads and bolts.
The interior seats and door panels were replaced and installed by Scoties Autobody Shop. The headliner is orignal.The original radio is car but I have installed a stero in the glove compartment using holes available. There are not cut outs on any metal, it remains all original.
It has had its first repaint since purchase. PPG Amber was used for the base coat and Eastwood clear. Was wet sanded and buffed out. It is not show paint but crusing paint. Most products used on the impala are Eastwood product. New front winshield and gasket as well as a new gasket around rear window.
The trim is original although I found some new old stock on Ebay and replaced the fender moldings. I still have the original ones.I have pictures of each area done and can attach to emails if there is an area you wish to see. I did a walk around video and UTUBE under 1964 Impala frame off restore. It you have a smart TV I would suggest you view it there as it is running and you can really appreciate the Duntov cam. The car and engine have less than 100 miles on since it got running again for the highway. I am asking $28,000. firm and now trades. Thanks for looking at my fathers 1964 Impala he really loved it and so do I.
