Shes a beauty Ron! You don't see them around very much.  :thumbsup:

 

Hopefully once I retire I can get my 66 T-bird done.

Not mine, but the contractor that’s overseeing a complete bathroom renovation here, showed up today driving this, a pretty nice ’68 Impala convertible.

Nice looking truck, Ron! What engine did you put in it? Looks like a LT-1 350?

Thanks

 

Yes it's a 4blt main 350 bored .030" over, lightly cammed with a 700R4 tranny.  Front suspension was upgraded to a Total Cost involved independant with Mustang II rack, Corvette front brakes and booster.
