History -Born in Los Angles, California,lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico and retired to Palm Beach, Florida.
My brother found the car elevenyears ago in Albuquerque, NM. It was a solid unrestored original carin daily driver condition with NO RUST! He couldn’t pass the deal up. After spending a few hoursin the parking lot of an auto parts store addressing some tune-up items, he hit the road for Florida. The trip took two days, the only issue being a flat tire. The Impala became his daily driver for the next four years until he decided it was time to take it to the next level. Over the next few years the entire car underwent a major restoration: paint and body, wiring, motor, trans, rear end, interior. As the car was nearing completion, he moved to Oregon for work. I had always loved the 64 Impala; especiallywith the Sport Coupe trim and a healthy V-8.So naturally, we worked out a deal and I completed the project . I have owned her for about Four years andhavedriven to a few local shows as well as the DaytonaTurkey Rod Run.However, I don’t drive the car very much and with the 60 wagon, 39 & 72Chevy pickup projects in the works, I could use the garage space. It's been an awesome ride, but it's time to move on.

Issues:. There are a few minor cracks in the paint on the lower fender behind the passenger side rear wheel. There is a bubble in paint on the passenger side top of the body. This must have been from a chemical reaction, as the bubble appeared immediatelyafter the car was painted(shown in YouTubevideo walk around).Sadly the paint shop refused to take responsibilityfor these issues.
