your tucked looked nice...i woudlnt' have traded it for something that was on its way to the scrape yard. Instead i would have just offered him like $50 cause thats all he would have gotten for the scrap guy anyways.

Best bet man is find a donor cheap 62 4 door car, use the frame and you will be able to use many good parts like the whole front clip etc. And to answer your question, 61 thru 64 hard top frames the same, 2 door hard top and 4 door is the same. Good luck on your project! ;)

Good luck in getting back on the road, I am working on a 64 it has been a long project but I continue on.

imma need luck and lots of money..lol......this is goin to be a long project too cause i want everything to be right...... ive decided that the car is goin to sit for winter so i can get my 84 cutlass done which it is half done right now then i can sell that and start the impala...

i got this from a guy at work which after droppin git off i know not to trust sumones word........i asked alot of questions and he made it soun dlike it was a cherry ride.........of course when it got here the bumper was hangin down along with some of the frame back there...i could have gone to look at it but that was a 5hr. drive i didnt want to make especially when my truck gets like 10 miles to the gallon i swear.....as soon as winter is over the cutlass should be done then i can start the 62 impala...so ill post more when i get it out again..................................

i was hoppin to have the only 62 impala (to be lowrided) around here but this past weekend i found one at a auto place but what the guy wants for it is way more than i can get...ill try to find pics of it.

WAY TOO MUCH MONEY

I would never pay over $300-$400 for a complete rolling frame with rear end and all.
