bag kits, so I just designed and fabricated my own.

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..
