1981 impala <> to live and die in l.a.
ive been watching this car for years but never approached the owner because he was rumoured to be anal about his cars.
last week i said lets see whats up and drove to his place and ended up buying 2 vehicles.
this 1981 chevy impala 4 door tan interior tilt ac,tan exterior has lonng been a fav of mine since the movie
to live and die in la,
a borrrrrrring movie except for the chase scene,which was pretty cool.
without further ado..
my 81 impala.,moss and all.
solid,has a frame,original paint,and 58 thousand original miles.
car came out of florida ages ago and never ran right so just sat in carport.
what i want to do,is yank the mighty 267 v8 w the dualjet carb and compooter controlled distributor all out in one yank,
and pop something a little more serious in there.
my questions for you pros would be
will the stock axle take it?
will the stock trans behind the 267/auto take it?
any thoughts on building a cruiser? tan impala 4 door
as far as suspension and so forth?
im looking for more of a handler than a racecar.
thanks in advance for the read,and any advice or help you can give.
