Interior and After Photos


July 2000 - The interior is nearly completed. The door panels were not installed in the above photo because the upholstery shop was still waiting for enough buttons to finish them. They were finished shortly after this photo was taken.

And here is the finished engine compartment.

July 2000 - Dad's 1963 Impala and his 1966 truck. The restoration of both vehicles is essentially complete at this time. However, we do have a few future improvements planned for both of them.

August 2004 - Dad purchased a 409 that we'll be rebuilding and eventually swapping into the 63. The 327 that's in the car now will be getting swapped into the 66 pick-up.
