1965 Chevy Impala SS NASCAR Grand National Stock Car - 1st engine start
This is the first engine start of this Roy Mayne 1965 Chevy Impala SS in over 40+ years. The engine is a Chevy Big Block 427 (396 .60 over) 60s era NASCAR spec motor. This is the real deal. This car raced from 1965 - 1967 in the NASCAR Grand National Stock Car series on such famous tracks as Daytona and Darlington. Roy's best finish was at Darlington in 1965 when he finish 4th in this car.
This car is being restored in under 30 days to compete in this years 2010 Monterey Sports Car Reunion (aka Monterey Historics) at Laguna Seca Raceway
note the flickering you see on the dash is due to a bad ground, something we fixed after I took the video
# 2 -Historic Grand National Stock Cars- AAA Auto Club NASCAR 2-21-2010
More vintage footage of the NASCAR Historic Grand National Stock Cars but
this time they fire-'em up so you can hear them like they were. Nothing
sounds better than a NASCAR engine!!! You have to give this group a slap on
the back to keep these ready to race and remind us of NASCAR's past that
most of us grew up on.
impala video 41 "the 63's first saturday night car show"
over 450 custom cars in this monthly car show. this is the show I was
driving to when I drove in to the hole. I replaced the A-frame on the 63
that was bent and both ball joints on that side. It has still been over
100*F here and I'm waiting for it to cool off some before I get after the
floors on the 63.
409 Mystery Engine Chevy NASCAR Impala at Russo and Steele Power Brake TV
Here Bob and Matt visit Russo & Steele in Scottsdale, AZ. We saw many fine
cars - many, many fine cars. Here we noticed a 409 car that was made out to
look like the Holly Farms Nascar Mystery Motor car. It is a recreation, but
a nice vehicle paying homage to the original Junior Johnson car. The 409
was ruling the track in the early 60's, and when the cubic inch limit was
increased to 427 the 409 blocks were stroked to 427. Those engines were
doing well with 600 horsepower, but they took it
a step further with the Mystery Motor, of which only about a dozen were
The Junior Johnson car had one of those engines, at over 163 mph around
Daytona, these cars were doing 5 to 7 miles per hour faster than everyone else. Since only a
dozen were built there weren't many spare parts, one of the Mystery Motors
lost a water pump at Daytona, and thus lost the race. These motors were the
testbed and origin of the Mark IV that came about in 1965 that gave us the
396, 427, and 454 engines.

downtown Monterey during Race Week.
