    John - is that a Impala or Biscayne model ?
  3. I've been restoring my 1969 Chevrolet Impala SS over the past few years and I decide to have a authentic Window Sticker produced. When I purchased the vehicle, it came with a folder with a paper trail of information / documents, such as the "Car Shipper" invoice , "Protect-O-Plate" and some repair invoices as well. The gentleman that is making the window sticker for me asked about any information that I may have for the Impala, which I did and scanned it for him. He got back to me, wanted to know if the salesman's name was listed anywhere, I told him no. So, he mention that the name on the P-O-P was listed in the White Pages out in Kansas. I figured that it was a long shot, but I gave it a try. I tried yesterday a few times with no answer. Today, second ring and he picked up. He could not believe it, but after I explain myself and gave him details about the Impala, he opened up to me.... he purchased the Impala in January 1969 when he was 19 years old and drove it for the next 25 years before selling it in 1994. He used to drive it 90 miles a day to a community college.... he wanted to know if the Impala will be worth anything once it's restored...lol. He had no idea of what today's values are ( he has no computer or phone, just a cell phone ) Very nice guy, I plan to mail him some photos of the Impala and I promise him that I will keep in touch with updates on the progress of the restoration.. Oh, almost 50 years ago and he still remember the name of the salesman ! This made my day !! Steve

    Advice on what to do with a 65 Skylark Convertible

    Beautiful car..... keep it! Not too many people have the opportunity to own a vehicle that had one owner AND you know who they are. Take the winter months to go over the vehicle ( maintenance / cleaning ) you'll appreciate the vehicle that you have there and you will be ready to cruise in it next spring ! Steve

    UNDERSIDE VEHICLE PROTECTION

    Great information, I appreciate it. I'll look into the epoxy paint and the box fans. Steve

    UNDERSIDE VEHICLE PROTECTION

    Question, I park my vintage vehicles in a detached garage with a cement floor. I had one friend tell me that I should paint the floor with a epoxy paint to protect it and another friend mention that i should lay down plywood to protect the vehicle from moisture. Just curious what some of the members here have done to protect their vehicle from the moisture issue. Thanks !

    1961 Mercury Meteor 800 restore

    Martin - question regarding your fenders....how are you going to finish the inside of your fenders ? Years ago when I restored my first Impala, I coated them with POR-15, made sure that the coating got behind the bracing.... I see now that POR-15 has a spray that is available. I'm debating on which route to go with my fenders.... Thanks Steve

    1969 CHEVROLET IDLING ISSUE

    Thanks for the info !

    1969 CHEVROLET IDLING ISSUE

    No... the rebuild was done by a mechanic that I've known for over 30 years... The truck was running fine....... while driving it one day, I accelerated hard going up an incline, that's when the issue with the idle started.... I mention this to my mechanic and he believed that the accelerator pump on the carb failed...at this point we decided to do the rebuild. He did adjust the idle mixture screws and check vacuum as well. Vacuum advance is operating from manifold. But I would have to ask him about the float if that was included in the rebuild kit.
