I bought this car from Ray Shields in 96 and it was a driver for 8 years. It had a 194 L6, 250 L6, 283 and finally a 350 crate motor. Car only broke down on me once and that was when a rocker stud broke on the 283 because some previous owner drilled and pinned them and it broke at the pin. This 283 actually came out of my 64SS! I drove that car everywhere, Tahoe, Virginia City, Yosemite.

I hope to re-create this car from the 63 that Camgrinder sold to me. I plan on putting the same 283 in it but this time the 4 speed will also go in:yes:. I really enjoyed how that car looked, drove, etc...

Here are some pics of my old 64 in Yosemite.

That's why I'll never get rid of my sedan. I prefer them over coupes --- not to say I don't like coupes. :eek:

... I just like sedans more :D

That car had to be mine! It looked pretty much exactly like my 64 when I bought it from Ray. Same color and primer spots on it. :)
