Restored 1966 Impala SS with 383 Stroker Motor. 500 miles on restoration done at 105,000 miles.
I purchased this car in October of 2011 as an older restoration in great shape with maybe 102,000 miles. Currently has less than 500 miles on new motor. It was intended to be used as a daily driver as my first classic purchase. I immediately replaced a passenger side window motor and headliner, but it was a car that got thumbs up everywhere as it was. As I started attending more car shows, I wanted more of a show quality car and began a 3 year plan to fully enhance this vehicle. This car gets out 5 or 6 times a year now for short cruises to car shows or to drive around the local town and I now have multiple awards from shows. I have since purchased several other classics in restoration now and I am taking things to the next level with these and one of these is a vehicle like I owned in High School which holds special value to me, so I am selling my beautiful Impala to help fund further projects, but mostly because I have a wife that curbs my spending. Who knows, I may change my mind and keep this in my growing stable. The car is stored indoors and covered in my warehouse.

The moon headlight covers is really one of my favorite features on this car that originally peaked my interest, but knowing what I know now, there are tons of things way more important to the builds. FYI...if you want any further photos, or other info, just reach out and I will see what I can do.
