Current Project, Customers Car

Click pictures for a larger view.

Here is the stock 65 Impala SS Convertible in running order with a period correct 327/ Power glide setup.
Owner found a # correct 396/325 hp and had it completely rebuilt. The 327 is in foreground, 396 in back.
We use the jack stand setup for full access during install and removal.
Here is a brand new 396/325 hp complete and getting ready to go in. 
The dash in the none AC car has no vents and only one ash tray. We removed the lower dash panel as seen.
Here is the correct AC panel, painted and ready to install.
The lower panel is installed and spot welded in place. Lots of double checking before welding.
We also make goofs, a screw was too long and dimpled the hood. Here it is ready for a new coat of paint at our expense.
 We had several pictures of the AC installation and firewall modifications. But they disappeared somehow.
