1960 Impala Sport Sedan Restoration - Spraying some hi-build primer!
Applying the first coat of Featherfill G2 high build primer to my 1960 Impala 4 door hardtop. I have my gun set for lower pressure and thus a smaller fan width so I don't blow over-spray all over my shop and into the underside of the car that is already restored and painted. It takes longer to spray, but I'm not in a hurry anyway. Watch the progress on this car at my restoration blog at www.60impala.com.
1960 Impala Restoration
This is the 1960 Impala that me and my brother restored about a year ago, before we did the "67 Mustang. It was kind of a barnfind and we feel like the luckiest guys on earth to have found her before it was to late. All parts of this car were wrapped in newspaper of the 70's. That's how long she was sitting in the garage. The parts were polished before they were wrapped and looked like new. And let me tell you, it has no rust. A real dream come true.

Ride in 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air
This is my 59 Bel Air. I am the second owner, and have owned the car since March 1978. I paid $75.00 for it, with 58,000 miles at that time. It is still mostly original, other than it has been repainted, by me, in 1984. Dashboard still has the factory original paint and gauges. Everything on the car works great.
Options are, clock, deluxe heater, two speed electric wipers, AM radio,Tissue Dispenser, parking brake alarm...blinking red light in very beginning of video... EZI glass...tinted, rocker moldings, vent shades and license plate pocket guard...gas filler is behind license plate.
The engine is a 348 cid 250 hp turbo Thrust V-8, that has never been overhauled. It has a 4-Jet Rochester carb. The power steering is driven off the rear of the generator...yes it has a DC generator....not a AC alternator with diodes to change the AC to DC current. Power brakes are Boosted by factory Bendix Booster. Trans is a 3 speed manual and axle ratio is 3.36 to1.
Driving it from Michigan to Georgia it got 18 mpg and used no oil.
