My 1100 Dollar Jewel — what I love about this car is that when you apply tlc you get your investment back 10 fold nothing like a heavy chevy baby!!! I have been a chevy man all my life once you go chevy done deal.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Lots of room front and back
easily maintenanced
long body style makes parking easy

Cons: rear wheel drive in winter time a slight hinderance

Cruise Nite — Really just our car show car, even though it could use some cosmetic attention. 327ci engine under the hood, 2 speed transmission and is fun to drive when you want to show somethin off. Not really somethin i would race with but its always nice to cruise every once and a while. Its old, and requires repairs every once in a while. Looks good when your lookin at it from a distance, but it has some minor imperfections than hav accumulated recently.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its a classic that anyone can enjoy

Cons: its getting old

Super Sneaker — This pure white SS convertible was unbelievable. Somebody had dropped a 345 horse Corvette, Muncie 4 speed and 4.11 limited slip differential into this car. It had the Duntov cam with that beautiful whump, whump,whump sound. It still had 283 powerglide emblems on the side so everbody, even Ramblers, wanted to race me...beat them all!!!

Pros: POWER !!!

Cons: Handling especially in the rain

1963 — My dad taught me how to drive a stick on this car. Very intimidating considering it was his baby. At the time I started to drive it, it had a 396 under the hood. Now it has a 454 and is my baby.

Pros: family memories

Cons: gas guzzler

Cruises Like A Dream — Amazingly built car... high level of details from the engine turned dash to the chrome console, this car is high class. Cruised like a dream... like you are floating on a cloud. A real head turner!!

Pros: Comfortable, beautiful design

Cons: a little on the heavy side

My Low-rider — My great grandfather bought this in 1965. It currently has 75,000 original miles. It's in decent shape. needs interior restoration and could use a new paint job and re-chrome the bumpers. Also needs new heads and exhaust and the engine should be overhauled..... well I guess we just need to fully restore it.

Pros: the 327 would kick anyones ass.... well almost

Cons: heads currently leak, otherwise i'd blow the doors off of it when I hit the pedal

An American Classic! — Excellent car. Highly encourage anyone to go for the power brake setup. 400ci s/b with 400turbo tranny makes a great deal of power as well if built right. Not a big fan of the 283ci with the original 2 spd powerglide however it's not bad considering the time it was built.

Pros: Solid...will be here long after I'm gone.

Cons: Some parts are hard to come by, and the restoration process is slow.

Triple Carb, Solid Lifter, 4 Speede 409 (apologies To The Beach Boys) — Amazing acceleration - scary handling and stopping. had the 348 tripower triple carb setup on it and it made all sorts of loin-tingling noises when you tromped on it

Pros: Power, power, power - tyre-shredding burnouts

Cons: Fuel consumption, fuel consumption, fuel consumption

Looking For Another Black Ss 409-425 — In October of 1962,I ordered a Black/ red interior 63 SS with 4SP 409-425 HP. It took a while to get it, but what a great car! I kept it a couple of years and sold it as I was just married and worked for the US Forest Service in a remote area. It required a lot of care , such as constantly adjusting solid lifter configuration and "loading up" due to 11.25:1 compression ratio. It was really fun to drive, but expensive...yea even at $0.33/gal Chevron Custom Supreme prices. I still remember the wonderful sound of that engine, even at an idle and that mighty torque. The optional 4:56 gears and close ratio 4-speed made it very good "off the line", but mileage.....had to convert to 3:08....and burned clutch plates! I'd sure like to get another one.

Owner for 1 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:10,000

Cons: It takes a lot of work to keep it running right.  You also have to run exclusively on airplane gas unless you do some very expensive "detuning".

Very Good! — The 1963 Impala was the high water mark for all of the full-size Chevy's. It offered performance for practically any sized wallet and then some. I just would like to know what happened to the 427 STREET V-8 that seemingly so few people knew about.
