Are you looking for a RARE SS? YOU FOUND IT!! Plate under the hood reads: *63 VIN1867 BODY JA 7453 TRIM 8451Z PAINT 936 ACD FGM. The owner of this rare car has passed away and the family has asked me to sell the car. He owned the car the past 14 years and it was his "Pride and Joy", he only drove it on special occasions and always kept it inside. This car has power steering, power brakes, AIR CONDITIONING, new battery, windshield washers w/original bottle, good top, good glass, good chrome, good stainless, 5 SS hubcaps, good tires, nice interior, nice trunk and a detailed engine compartment.
It has the reliable 283 cubic inch engine with the economical 2 barrel carburetor, dual exhaust and the power glide automatic transmission. It has been converted over to the more efficient alternator and the radio has been updated to an am/fm cassette with front and rear speakers. It also has the Super Sport option with bucket seats, full console, floor shift and tilt steering column.
At some point in its life it had at least one repaint. When doing this the inside of door jams were not properly prepped so there is some evidence of flaking which is hidden with the doors closed.

    Here is a very nice Camaro Convertible that is an excellent driver, very road worthy (just did a 120 mile road trip) that needs nothing to be a “Weekend Cruiser”.  The car was shown at the last Winter Wheels Car Show in Jamestown and was awarded first place in the convertible class. Speedometer shows 98,500 miles since new.

    The car has had at least one repaint changing the color from blue to white. Because of excellent care it still has the original seats, carpet, door panels, dash, top and rear window which are all in decent shape.            

    It has power brakes with the RARE disc brakes on the front, power steering, vinyl covered bucket seats, console with floor shift, top is manual, glass is all good, and the stainless and chrome are also nice.

    The engine is a 327 cubic inch overhauled and stroked to 383 cubic inches using a 400 crankshaft, Holley four barrel carburetor and a Wienad intake manifold. The transmission has been updated to a Turbohydromatic and correct shift indicator. The front suspension has been upgraded and rebuilt using a heavier sway bar for better handling.

    $2,000. was recently spent on the car for tune-up, brake work, u-joints, service transmission and some other updates so it is ready to cruise. The rear tail lights have been updated to LED sequential lights. The factory AM radio has been replaced with an am/fm/cassette radio. Car comes with the Owners Manual and paper work for the repairs that were done.

    It presently has custom 5 spoke wheels but the original Rally Wheels are included and so are RARE Disc Brake Hubcaps for the Rally Wheels. (Disc Brakes are printed on the hubcaps). I was told these hubcaps sell for $300. each and are very hard to find.

    Drive this car anywhere, fly in to our airport, I will pick you up and you can drive it home. Or, if you want I can help make arrangements to have the car shipped to your door.

    Call me (Stan) at 701-740-7340.

The restoration started with a very nice original body with hardly any rust, the only panel that was replaced was the tailgate. The body and paint work were professionally done.
I went over the pickup real good today and noticed a few things, there are no wipers or wiper motor, the radio is missing and the dash does not have the radio delete cover, the heater and defrosters are missing and the speedometer is disconnected.

Take a look at this beautiful 1964 Chevrolet Impala Convertible. It has a numbers matching completely rebuilt 327 Cubic Inch V-8 engine built by the reputable Adams Automotive and Machine.  The automatic transmission is in good condition and had the front seal replaced while the engine was out. All hoses were also replaced, the engine was balanced and hardened seats were installed. It has the rare factory tach which has been rebuilt by D&M restoration. Also, the power brake booster has been replaced, a new master cylinder has been installed along with wheel cylinder kits.
    The top is in good condition, (replaced in 2003), at that same time the top pads were rebuilt, the inner boot was replaced and since then the pumps have been bled so the top works great. The seats, carpet, dash and all glass are in excellent condition. The car was originally sold in Texas to a family in New Mexico before moving to Colorado and then North Dakota. I have the original owner Protection Plan, the Owners Guide, other books and manuals and record of past owners.
    The body appears to be rust free with no dents, the chrome is in good condition, the stainless has only a couple of minor dings. The trunk is clean and the engine compartment is respectable. Tires are in good condition and the original hub caps are on the car. Presently the car has 106,000 actual miles but you would think it was half that because of the care this car has had in the past.
    This car is in our showroom just waiting for a nice Sunday drive with the top down and/or ready for the local car shows. Today the car was driven over 100 miles and is ready to go across country. Fly in, we will pick you up at the Devils Lake airport and you can drive her home or if you like we would be more than happy to help arrange transport anywhere.

1980 - 1 TON DUALLY - SOLD
Custom painted and lowered 4 door truck w/ a built 454, automatic transmission, gooseneck ball and other extra's. Runs and drives great!!

One owner with 13,870 original miles, always inside climate controlled building. This car is like new!!!! I personally own this car and bought it new in 1986, what more can I say, it is as close to perfect as they come.

This is a running driving car that is all steel and has had a full body restoration. It would not take much to finish the car to original condition or if you desire it would make an easy finish to a street rod, it is your choice.
It presently has the stock drive train with the 6 cylinder engine and 3 speed transmission. It would be easy to street rod because it already has a brand new stainless steel gas tank with the integral fuel pump.
It would be even easier yet to install a newer 6 cylinder Chevy engine and transmission which would give the stock appearance but have the reliability of a modern drive train.
This car is a cruiser!!! I just love driving this car!! It has a very nice ride, runs and handles excellent!! If you are looking for a car that gets the looooooks, this one will do the job and give you back tons of pleasure. It has a new long block 350 cubic inch V-8 (1,200 miles) and a 350 Turbo transmission, great sounding dual exhaust,  power steering, power brakes, power antenna, am/fm radio/cassette sound system. The engine compartment is clean and has chrome accessories, the body has rolled pans front and rear, third brake light and recent paint. The underneath of this car shows no signs of rust anywhere, it is just really a nice solid car.
I will repeat, it is a good solid driver with excellent ride and handling but does need a little TLC on the interior. The headliner and carpet were replaced and the seats recovered but it still needs a little here and there. The wipers and signals are not working and the speedo is about 10 mph slow at 65 mph.
Great car for the money, fly in and drive this car home or I can help make arrangements to have this car delivered to your door.
Call me at 701-740-7340, Stan
