Description

This is a 1963 impala SS (real) 409 (not matching) with a 4 speed transmission. The rear differential is a 3.08 non posi. I bought this car 10 years ago from a dealership in Texas. I bought the car in this condition. The car is in very good condition, has been garaged ever since, and very little miles added over the last 10 years. There are no known mechanical issues, I have changed mostly everything mechanical.

What I did to the car:
1. Swapped out a 283 engine which was not original, to a newly rebuilt 409 engine which I bought from a mechanic in Michigan who had the engine in storage for over 25 years then decided to rebuild it and put it up for sale in 2008. I bought in May of 2008.
2. New 4 core radiator aluminum, new belts, hoses and pulleys.
3. Borgeson power steering box, pump, bracket.
4. 1 inch front sway bar
5. New tie rod ends, center link
6. 4 new heavy duty springs, 4 QA-1 shocks
7. 16” centerline wheels with BFG tires – 235/60
8. Edelbrock Carburetor
9. MSD ignition wired to points distributor, new msd coil + plug wires
10. New battery
11. New rear lower control arms – global west
12. New Y shaped headers with flow master exhaust 40 series
13. “I did it” collapsible steering column with an aftermarket steering wheel
14. All new engine bay ground wires and all new POS engine bay wires.
15. Powermaster 100AMP alternator
16. New Fuel pump
17. New Starter
18. New all 4 drum brakes – these brakes are big, car stops very well!
19. Car has been thoroughly inspected (4/2014) at a well know local mechanic who works on classic cars. They did the safety inspection sticker, wheel alignment, exhaust, new rear differential gasket + new fluid, fixed some small odds and ends – new cotter pins, rewired a few things in the engine bay etc.

Any issues?
1. I needed to put in a junction box under the dash for the POS lead from the battery to the fuse box and for other POS leads. This factory sodder was bad and I cannot sodder so I used a junction box to pull all of the leads together.
2. The front brace of the front seat on drivers and passenger side needs replacing. The rear brace of the front seats are intact as well as the rear seat brace. I bought the 2 braces for each side about 2 feet in length for each side. Ran out of time and money to fix this, I got estimates between 1200-1500 dollars, I would think if I shopped around more I could get a better deal. This was identified when the car was inspected on 4/14.
3. I never hooked up the lights for the gauge cluster and for the tach – white leads.

I am a car guy and I love working on them, I can tell you anything you want to know about the car since I’ve owned it, I have nothing to hide, please email me at frank1966@optonline.net or call my cell at 914 263 8370 and leave a message and I will return your call. I do prefer email communication for quicker responses. I have explained the car in the most detail as I can, car is for sale as is with no warranty.

The engine is a real 409 - codes for 1964 409 340hp - Engine stamp on the front says T0415qc - QC identifies the 409. The transmission does code for a Muncie 4 speed.
