OPG - just down the road from me - happy to stop by there if it would help in any way.

 

 

Thanks that's really kind - they seem to specialise in later Chevys as far as I can see, but I appreciate the offer.

This is a good Chevy website, they have sections for specific years and there is a lot of knowledge on there. May be worth joining: https://www.chevytal...ionbb/index.php

 

I may have said before that I may have seen your 56 years ago, the plate rings a bell. My first American car way back in 1976 was a RHD Impala Sport Sedan aka 'flat top'. Went from Sarf London with a Mk3 Zephyr 6 and trailer to Hucknall in Notts, cost the princely sum of 35 quid. Mind you a fair part of the bodywork was missing. Reg was WXT4. We got it back to base in Peckham and put it into a friend's unit where it resided with his 58 Delray two door. Ah the memories. May have a photo of the Impala somewhere, should scan it and let you all see its magnificence. I also had a RHD 58 Belair four door sedan reg VXO9, that has a 283ci V8 and three on the tree, yes it still exists albeit the plate has gone. Another one was a RHD 68 Chevelle wagon, had a 230ci six and Powerglide, came to the uK in 1975/6. That was built in Canada for export to I believe South Africa. Good luck with the 56, hope someone can help you with the repair section.

Thanks - I have been on there since about 2000 :)

 

Interesting stuff about your cars - I wonder if any of them every appeared in Steve Miles' books - if I win the lottery I will pay someone to catalogue all the cars in his books - I wonder if there are more pictures he never managed to publish.
