How much would it cost to get a classic impala painted?

I want to paint it glossy red or midnight black. Does color affect cost. Where is the best place to get classic cars painted?

A good local body shop could do this for anywhere between 6 to 10,000. You will want the car sanded all the way down to the metal and new primer and paint. Other wise a scuff and shoot is way cheaper but believe me you will regret it in just a few years when the paint peels all the way back down to the bare metal. See the pics in my garage. Those black blotches are where I am having to put a product that keeps the metal protected until I can get mine redone. This car had a scuff and shoot just about 6 months before I bought it in 03. Have the job done right, don't skimp for your will regret it later.
