Which of these cars would be the best to restore?

I have started to look around a bit for my "next " project.This would be a nice driver to have fun with at local cruises and little road trips.NOT a higher end show car by any means. Assuming these cars are all in similar condition now, what are the most desirable and marketable down the road? 1. 63 Impala SS. will run. 2.65 Imala SS 3.67 Impala SS 4.67 Cevelle Malibu 2dr hardtop 5 62 Impala 2dr hardtop 6.63 Impala SS convertible 7.69 Olds 442 convertible. The last 2 may not be in that good of shape, and I'm not that excited about converibles anyway. Thanks for any opinions or suggestions Jim.

The convertibles would be worth the most once restored............

An SS is worth more than a regular Impala, generally.........

The Chevelle, if a big block would be pricey............

Personally, I love 65 Impalas...............great looking car.........

My first and last new car was a 65 Impala SS with a 327 and I really liked it. My Coupe motor is 327 from a 63 Impala and I also like the 63 Imp. SS so my vote goes to either of these.
