Oh Man I am JEALOUS!What a GREAT find! That can be listed as a "barn" find! Snatch that baby up and save her! Bring her back to LIFE! Looks like an SS to me...Maybe a Sport Coupe...

Power steering, brakes and AC....NICE!

Rust? What do the floors, frame and trunk floor look like?

I'd hang out at Team Impala (link I posted above). Be careful posting the vin and pics, there are some sharks on the net who will scoop that thing up
