Cool man, I didnt know they made those as post cars you dont see them much. You already know I love the slot mags on these vintage cars/trucks if you can get a set that fits the car well.Are yours 15's all around or 14 up front 15 rears? I have 14 front and 15 rears, I had a full set of 14's but buddy bought them off me in HS and regret letting them go. I held onto my little 4 lug 13's but tires are hard to get for them without paying big cash.

I think I have 3 pairs of 15x10's with different back spacing and not a single set fit my chevelle, either too much back space and runs into wheel tub or too little and rub the rear quarters. I do have a set of 15x8.5's that fit good so I will run those but miss the deep lip 10's lol.

I also have 2 sets of the 6 lugs for trucks, would love to come across a set of 16.5's 8 lug since my 63 is 3/4T, I have found them in past but everytime I do $$ is not there.

Thanks Trin Trin..
I usually like them the other way around.. Needing mechanical fixes instead of body work..
I'm still debating how far to go with the cosmetics and clean up.
Or just trade it/sell it.
Looking it over alot closer last night ..
Rear quarters have been done. very well though. Cant even hardly tell.
Was a bit nervous as I know their is body filler in rear quarters.

Least it didn't have cardboard crammed behind and Bondo slapped over them..
I bought a 65 Impala once like that. The Rocker panels had to be a can each and completely formed from the stuff...

I'm looking forward to this weekend to get out sand and probably get most the body back in new primer..
Ive a few choices...
Flat/satin white..with blue SS stripes
or
Flat/satin Black with long wisp Traditional flames.( Yellow to Orange & Red)
Kinda a rough Rat Rod theme..
For interior..Probably picking up some vinal spray paint and go all Blue for white car...Or all black for Black car..
All kind of depends on what color it goes.

Some ankle burner side pipes from the era would be sweet too..
A friend had a set many years ago...might hit him up and see if he still has them.

I may spend the money on a double snorkel hood ( Aftermarket )
Or some sort of scoop any how....

Here is a GT37...Love the colors and looks.. Hood has a shaker...
Be fun fun to mess with people ..
Paint it like that..but weather it to look like a survivor barn find...hehehehee.
Be fun and stand out from a crowd.

HI Ya 25aniv..
Bone stock runner under the flip..
Only problem area needing seriously replaced, is trunk floor.
Your beer would fall out threw a rusty hole it has...ahahahaaa.
My friend said he would take a day and replace it though for free if I get the 2 piece replacement..Around 80.00 us.

Seriously a solid car and fantastic bone stock runner.
Even the wiring has been unmolested.. Something rare Indeed.
Really going to be a good base to do something with..
I cant afford a chevell...but comes from the the late muscle car era..
Plus everyone has or wants a chevell ..
So kinda a ( dare and Be diffrent ) going to be hapininin..

Hey 2B!
Yep quite rare coming across one that hasn't been through the backyard mechanic school or craptacular wiring repair 101.
Hey! I have the same Leman's pics! Love that car and would do it almost the same minus the side stripes and quarter scoops. There's one around here in dark metallic grey with matching steelies, T/A shaker and a wicked big block stroker for power. No stickers or anything, just the basics for trim. Very subdued on the outside. Not so sleeper-ish though once it fires up!
I Had a 68 SS396 4spd Chevelle that I really enjoyed and would enjoy this just as much me thinks.

If you do think of selling it, keep me in mind. I may be very interested
