OK   this is a 61 Impala made after  a Real one I owned way back when..It was a
 348cu in -350hp - tri power -4spd -  Original car..

OK maybe I got it. Lets try a pic or two..




  Saddle Tan with off white stripe in center with matching interior - bench seat..

 This is a pic of the interior so far.  



Not sure how much I can put into one post , so for now will end and see later.

Thanks     Tom  --  60s era

Thought I would throw this shot of the motor in just for kicks -- not done with it yet..




Worst part of the throttle linkage was trying to keep it all under that huge air cleaner.

Nice way to introduce your work. Sweet looking Chevy. The paint, interior and engine rock.

Put as much as you like in one post no limit here.

This is looking sharp all round- the interior colours really work too.

Keep the updates coming, Tom.

Cheers,

Thanks to All..

Sam : Try clicking on the Camera / Photobucket at the bottom of the square that says sorry.. That should take you to the PB page and clink again, it should bring up the pic's..

Don 't know why it showed the URL and not the picture , as it has done before..

Still learning to maneuver this sight..

That's a great looking engine compartment Tom.

How did you do the 'combined' wiring harness on the drivers side wheel arch?

Zbuckster -Geezerman - Skid..

Thank You all for the comments...

Skid : The Harness you asked about was made from assorted wires I had laying around..1st -- I stripped a wire that I thought looked good ( size wise ) then I found some real small wire between 26 -30 ga. Not sure of wire size but used the smallest I had . Then I inserted them inside the first wire..
The smallest wire is also what I used for the Generator wire's that go into the harness..just painted them colors I wanted..
Next : I used gap filling CA to attach Gen wires to encased wire and let dry then painted and
WA - LA wiring harness on fender well . The little clamps , on harness , are again the real small
wires left natural color..

Hope that helps .. Tom
