1963 impala frame off restoration
This is a video of the frame off restoration of my 63 impala. The frame has
been taken completely apart, sand blasted, primered, and then painted. I
have installed new upper and lower a-arm bushings and ball joints. New
front and rear coils and shocks as well as all new stainless steel brake
and fuel lines.. I installed a front power disc brake kit from a company
called MBM. The engine is a rebuilt chevy 350 and the tranny is a rebuilt
chevy turbo 350. I still have a couple
of things to do in order for the frame to be finished and ready to set the
body on it..
The HEAVY CHEVY - 2500hp TT Impala SS
Rick Wetherbee's 2500hp Impala SS drag car was one of the most unique cars
we saw run in the RADIAL VS THE WORLD radial class at Lights Out V in
Georgia. This car likely won't be taking home the quickest E/T in the
class, but DAMN it's movie down the track!
This wicked Impala is running a 540ci motor with twin 91mm turbos and a Power Glide, watch one of his shake
down passes at Lights Out V
