1964 Chevy Impala 292 six 3 speed overdrive
I've had this car for almost 20 years. I found it slowly rotting away on a
I've brought it back mechanically, but it needs paint yet.
Engine: 292 six cylinder, stock.
Trans: 3 speed overdrive (Borg Warner)
Rear axle: 3.36:1
Options added to car:
Door edge guards
14x6 station wagon rims
6-way power seat
Soft Ray tinted glass
This is the 3rd engine I've had in this car. When I bought it, all I had
to put in was
a 230. When a 250 became available, I put that in. This summer I pulled
from my station wagon project that I sold and put it in. The 292 was
bought from a
salvage yard in 1987, and spent the last 20 years in a station wagon. I
have put over 100k
on it, it has never used any oil, and starts in any weather. Never done
than a carb kit, or change oil.
The 3 speed overdrive usually requires a complicated wiring harness
utilizing a kickdown
switch, governor and engage switches. That is stupid. I just run it
myself utilizing a relay
controlled by an old Mopar cruise control switch. When the overdrive is
not engaged, you can
shift up and down easily with out using the clutch. The trans allows the
driveshaft to freewheel
faster than the engine, thus there
is no deceleration drag with the engine. When engaged, then
the engine will slow the car down during decelerations. You can't run the
overdrive in reverse, the
trans will lock up. I can run it in all 3 forward gears, however, the
torque of the engine will
hurt the planetary gears in 1st, and generally 2nd gear with overdrive is
too close to
3rd to bother with. I run it as a standard 3 speed, shifting all three
gears (no clutch needed), then
turning on the overdrive solenoid, letting off the throttle, then the
overdrive will engage.
When Chevy installed the overdrive from the factory, they would include a
Whats the point of that? Add an overdrive, then take it away with a crappy
Car gets 24 mpg at 55.

MGB Roadster for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California.
Solid 1968 MGB Roadster for sale, just one owner until a year ago. Owned
from new by a couple in the Bay area until purchased by my client earlier
this year. The original owner worked at an MG dealership. It was his
wife's car and only used for local drives in their home town. The car
starts; runs and drives beautifully with smooth shifting, tight suspension,
excellent brakes and clean running quiet motor with plenty of oil pressure.
Truly amazing to find such an original gem.
Incredibly original and unaltered, right down to the emissions equipment on
the engine. Lovingly cared for. The only modifications are period speakers
installed in the rear bulkhead and an electric cooling fan added to the
radiator. Drives with a tightness and originality that you don't find on
restored cars. Has had one repaint of it's original primrose on a razor
straight, absolute rust-free body. The wheels still bear the factory paint
and car has a vintage Amco convertible top. Frame bag is included. Nice
chrome, trim, glass and even the original leather in beautiful condition.
Also includes both original issue black license plates.
Take a look at all the details as well as full photo gallery at the link
above and then give me a call with your best offer.
