This is a great story about a rescued 1963 Impala SS by Rob Bentler.

‘We found this sitting in the garage since 1979 where my wife’s Dad parked it there. We towed it from Minnesota to Alaska this spring.’
‘We had a lot of rust to repair. New sections of frame and all new floor pans with homemade rockers.’

‘Hope to get the exhaust built on Tuesday and enter her in a car show next Friday in the “Still in Works” category.’

‘The history behind the car is it was my Father in laws who passed away last December. He never would say much about the cars he had (a 71 Mustang Conv., 63 Impala SS, ’67 442, ’71 Chevelle). Don’t know if he trusted me yet or not!’

‘Either way, after he passed, we went back there to clean up his estate and found all the cars in the garage. We picked this one to rebuild.’
It’s been a lot of work but also, lots of fun every day. It has a ATK performance 454 with 500 HP. TH400 train, 3000 stall and Currie 9″ with 373 gears. Should be really fun on the street.’


I built it for the wife, but also for me to run on the track every now and then too. Her Dad was a big gear head and owned a Phillips 66 gas station/garage in Osseo MN for his whole life. We kept the gas station but are letting his friend run it now. Anyway, thanks for letting me post this up on your page. I love seeing all the classic cars each day.’
