just bought 65 impala ss 327 matching, need info

Hi, just purchased a 65 Impala SS 327 coupe, white/red. where can I find good inexpensive parts, from complete engine block to barkes, fenders etc? Also, I'm thinking about doing an "overhaulin" on it....triple black paint, chrome rims etc...any suggestions as to an inexpensive way of doing it? Thanks

First, welcome to HR and congrats on finding a classic Chevy.

For parts, you could start with these two places:
www.carsinc.com
www.hhclassic.com

For information about restoration and parts as well, try:
www.chevytalk.com

I'm sure there are still some Impalas around for sale as parts cars and as far as junkyards (?), well....most classics have gone by way of the crusher.

Restoring or building a classic is not cheap by any means, but if you can do the work yourself, it will sure make the bank account feel better.

Good luck with your new toy!

Mike

Building a 65-66 Impala

Hopefully your impala is in good shape body wise or you are in for some fun. The body parts industry has not kept pace with thee cars and repro body parts are like hen's teeth. I have just rebuilt the body on my 65 SS convertible and had a ***** of a time finding anything. We were able to access some generic parts that are supposed to fit 65-7o impalas - trunk floor, floor pans, rear 1/4s, outer wheelhouses, however these were fits all-fits none. they may be better for a hardtop but required major rebuilding for a convert. Could not find front fenders, door skins. Do a good search before you buy as I have recently found some sources that were not there a year ago. I ran across a full floor assembly, right and left sides on ebay, that LOOKED better than what we used but that was after we were finished. Good luck. (my rebuild cost almost 15000 body alone, parts and labor))
