I had a 1965 98  2 door and loved that car. It had the, bent in the center, back glass. 

I really look forward to this restore !!!

Can't wait Tom that is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe a 70- 72 Monte Carlo rear bumper would be a good starting point.

Funny...that's exactly what I intend to base the bumper on. I just stripped the chrome on it.

Diggin' this! Dad had a '73, metallic brown with off-white/parchment vinyl top and white interior. With a 455, it was easier on gas than any Impala he ever owned!

I need to finish mastering the parts. The rest is up to my caster.

Thanks Tom, it's looking pretty sweet. A Pontiac Grandville would be cool also.

A '72 like this, I like the fancier grille versus the '71.?
