65 Chevy Impala

When Shaun Dove brought his '65 Super Sport to us, it looked just the same as in this photo, having been previously restored to original condition. The problem was that the drive train just didn't have enough get-up-and-go.....

.....so, we went to work rebuilding the 409, building custom headers, exchanging the stock trans for a Richmond 5-speed, converting to 4-wheel disc brakes and a few other things neede to bring it up real speed.

Not only does it produce more horsepower now (about 450), its also a lot prettier. Here's the specs: bored 60 over, Ross pistons, polished stock rods and bearings, Crane roller cam, Mallory coil and Sprint Magneto. Fuel and air is supplied through dual Edelbrock 600cfm 4-bl carburetors.
