1962 Chevrolet Impala SS
Dang... looks like my back yard
Hey 19cvy57man! I bet it would be even cooler if you would put the original eng-trans combo in your 62 Imp!
This chevy is a great find and I congradulate you for it. I bought a 62 Impala ( no SS ) convertible in about the same condition 20 some years ago. Since I aquired the car, I'm in the process of replacing the floor pans and restoring the body and drive line. The car came with a 6 cyl. engine and a castiron powerglide trans. I will be installing a 350-v8 and a 700R4 trans. Best of luck in your restoration project and I hope your time frame of completion is a lot shorter then mine. The 62 Chevy convertible is one of the finest looking rides on the road today.
I found this convertible behind a barn in TN. SuperSport car with manual transmission. The owner had the whole front cap off and stored seperately. It had been in a minor accident but nothing major at all. Super nice old man. He knew it was going to just rust away. Wish more people would realize that fact.
Nice car it is well worth the fixer up.
