my dads project is a 60 impala wagon. weve owned the car for 8-9 years. it was bagged on mutiple diff wheels and paintjobs. it was time to do it over the right way and do a full frame off cusom build..

heres some pics to catch up on where it is now

the fist paint job we did in the garage way back in the day

the second paint job at the summer nationals about 3 years ago next to his old 40 chevy and my 406 s10 i had for a short time

the rendering done for the build

body off

lots of parts sand blasted and primed

frame sand blasted and primed

new roof section and quarter from arizona tacked in place

firewall shaved

the motor sitting pretty waiting to go in. 468 forged bbc with a 871 and twin 950 carbs. made 763.2 hp on the engine dyno at 6-7 psi

ill update as the project moves forward..
