It better be! Hehe. Next time Im in Bombay Ill inform you in advance. Been watching alot of Overhaulin' eh?

Might I voice my humble opinion? The modern wheels would look alot better on your 61 Impala rather than the Biscayne.

I agree, BUT, the '61 is too too original, so dont feel like spoiling the look.
Whilst the '60 has a long way to go to come to that, so can fool around a lil bit na.

Default Vintage & Classic Cars under restoration

  • 1947 Chrysler Windsor is an one owner car, I being the second. Being restored for more than a year.Items were sourced from e bay & scrap yards in USA. May take 6 months to complete. A major project.
  • 1951 Standard Vanguard,Phase I estate also is an one owner car,me the second owner. According to Standard Club UK, there is only one such car even in England. Thus a very rare piece.Bumpers were stolen when it was the previous guys place. Should hit the road by Mar 31
  • 1929 Triumph a rare car.Belongs to my close friend. Restoring it for him.
Hope you like the picturescheers:

By any chance is this the same car? It was posted earlier on the forum, though it appears to be a Phase 2.

Do share pictures of the completed car with us.
