Default Longroof build,69 Impala

Ok guys here we go..... been on here close to a year now so I
thought i would share .....original plan was to build a slick show
car, health problems change that....so new plan is to build a safe
dependable beater that my disability buddies can throw the wheel
chairs, oxygen tanks,canes, walkers and coolers in the back and
cruise to the cars.... hang on here we go...........[URL=http://s374.photobucket.com/user/forbigpicture/media/garage%20and%20projects%20048_zpslxawbjxu.jpg.html][/U[URL=http://s374.photobucket.com/user/forbigpicture/media/garage%20and%20projects%20021_zpscyda2af7.jpg.html][/URL]RL]

Nice Cheby. I've always had a soft spot in my head for long roof cars. I admire your altruism and practicality, but that car is just begging for a 427.

I couldn't help but notice your '38/9 Ford cab. What's on the drawing board for that one?

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I hear ya. I don't have a BBC laying around either and I think I need one.

Your 38 project sounds perfect. I have another cab that has a similar plan. It will be a RPU. Saving that project for after retirement.
