Wow, I some how missed this post earlier. I had a chance to score one of these twice, but passed on both. I always thought these were cool. IMHO, I'd keep her around and give her a resto. Maybe swap in a 455 and add some late model Impala SS running gear into it. Great to see these are still out and about.

I remember the first one of these I saw at the dealership. It was hot then and still is a head turner. If you can't afford to put the money into it now, you may want to consider storing and doing the work later - or do a little work as the money allows.

Good call SG.
502 or a 572 with an Allison trans would be awesome. Find someone to do a billet 18" or 19" Olds Ralley wheel, wow the possibilities are just endless. You know, the real pace car had a targa roof. I wonder how tough that would be to replicate.

All in all, the car looks to be in good shape, I'd keep it.
