Pete’s 1968 Chevrolet Impala

Apr 12, 2018 | Customer Projects

Pete Sinclair’s Ermine White 1968 Chevrolet Impala took around 6 months to restore. With both windscreens and both back guards needing to be replaced, along with small amounts of rust and panel repairs the vehicle wasn’t in the worst shape but enough to keep himself and Villawood Engines busy restoring it.

The vehicle was painted in Protec 625 paint 2 years ago and has been used primarily as a leisure vehicle since. With his one word of advice Pete says “Do not buy a rusted-out car if you are not a panel beater, if you cannot do 90% of the work yourself, don’t do it”.

Pete’s vehicle was featured in the 2018 Auto West Calendar.
