great work your doing here, i just bought a 1960 2 door hard top, it doesnt need as much work as your, but mine does need paint and some chrome work. im really impressed with what you have done so far and i hope to get mine looking new. Its actually my first car (im 16) so im new to this whole car thing, continue to have fun with your car.
Also, do you know of any place where i can get some replacement chrome, ive been looking around.
Hey dave, I was wondering if you had any personal contacts for trim parts for a 60 four door.. i only need a couple things, and ebay hasn’t been very forgiving.. just looking around! any help at all is appreciated!
Hi, nice project . Because i am hurry now (go to ski, limited dayligth) , i go straight to business. I haved owned my rose-red flattop since 1991 here in finland. It has little outdated kustom interior and i have been lookin for original doorpanels. All intrested. Mayby front bumber too . I have contact in florida for shipping etc. so help needed. thanks. Mikko. email@example.com. and keep busy with your cars
Good job on the restoration. Definitely a labor of love. I’ve got a 60 Impala that has rotted away into large pieces, but there are some nice chrome parts that have survived. I’m looking for someone who could use them, for a reasonable price. Rear bumper, and side trim are some of the pieces I have. lh.jh at comcast dot net
hi, amazing work you’ve done. i own a 1960 impala too, and i was wondering if you knew a store in miami where i could find some trim parts and that kind of things. the problem is that i’m from argentina, but i friend of mine lives there in miami, but i need to tell him where to find the things i need so he can buy them for me
so thats all, than you very much, and congrats on your awesome work!
Great write up and awesome job your doing on the Chevy, wish I have the space to do the same for my girlfriends 4 door sedan
wondered if you could help with a little info on how the rear wing fin trims are held on, when I removed the existing one they where stuck on with silicone or mastic and only had one trim fitting at the boot end, I’m guessing there should be another one where they meet the side mouldings?
We have a BelAir but should be the same as the Impala
It always gets a great deal of interest at shows here in the UK, we haven’t seen another one in the UK although we know there are a couple of impalas over here.
Thanks in advance Carol and Trev
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Hi Carol and Trev. yes there should be another trim clip to help hold it on. One clip at the very corner is held on by a screw through the top of it, into the panel flange, the other clip actually has a nut holding it on from the inside.
Dave, I’m almost two years into a ’60 Biscayne restoration and was smiling the whole time reading your site as I’ve lived all the same dramas. I too did the frame off, and had a professional body guy doing the majority of my bodywork at my home shop. Finally mine is in paint and getting closer. So I was curious what software you are using to create your web site? I have my own domain, but can’t find an easy web site builder like Frontpage used to be to make my site. Keep up the great work and the reality check that YEARS is indeed a logical timeline for a project of this magnitude. I too have a couple other projects that distracted me and a couple waiting for this one to be done – hopefully over this winter.
