ok, i know that quite a few of you still work with the old rolling iron. i recently picked up this little monster
. it needs minor repair to some sheetmetal that i can fabricate, and replacement of small parts that i can find, and upholstery that i can make myself.
what i cannot find is fenders which are a definate replacement item, and other stuff like rocker panels that i will probably need later on.
anybody got some links or company names stashed around?
could really use the help to save a peice of american history.

Were you sober when you took the pic?
steep hillsides in that neighborhood
Looks like a rare find. Good luck with it. I'm sure it will take a while to complete such a project but post pictures when it's done.
The Magnum has a soul. It has a personality, something all too lacking in the automotive transportation appliances everybody else is offering.

Hi Flo Cats
didnt have to pay for it. girl owns a 56 merc. all she wants me to do is get the car running so she can drive it to the shops to get stuff done and she will give me the car. they were driving it until two years ago, she showed me the registration and title.
yeah, it's definatly a project, but not much worse than the chevelle when i bought it.
and nothing worth doing is easy. hammer, no roll as far as i can tell. other than the hinges on the drivers door, all the lines still match up.
plus, by the time i get the body done, i will have the money saved to buy a totalled mag/300 and transplant all the internals
estimated date of completion, 2010-2012
thanks for the links, gonna check them out
Nice car,When I had my 62' 409 I got alot of hard to find stuff through Late Great Chevrolet.They are a national 58-64 Chevy full size club that also has a full restoration parts supply,new and used.What motor do you have,283 or 348?When you start youir restoration check the body mounts under the trunknear the rear wheel wells,they are the first to go.Also where the upper trailing arm mounts to the frame,it is common that the mount breaks since there is only one upper arm.Let me know if you need any info.

well, the previous owmers did a hatchet job on the engine. the bay is stripped with a 350 with an somewhat updated oem and what looks to be a tall thin 2 barrel webber kind of like what they put on the 70's models 305's and 307's.
if i dont go with the new hemi idea, i'll end up stuffing in a 400 rocket i've had stored for a few years.
will definatly agree on the mounts, its got the usual trunkless chevy syndrome fromt eh ever cracking rear window seal thing they do.
it's definatly a full tear down and build up. but at least it has almost every single bit of chrome and trim all over it and more importantly, inside it.
The 60 Chevy is my favorite of all.Does it have the Bubbletop?Wanna sell it?
Nice project. I have one of my own in the garage. Its a 1963 chevy II nova Wagon. Lots of plans for that one. Good luck with the impala!
