Rare one, I can say for sure they did build a 6 Cyl. 3 speed on the column 77 Impala because I drove one back in the late 70's. Wish now I had known just HOW rare that car was because I could have bought it for a song when it was used up. I spent years looking for factory evidence or parts before I got tired and just made up a factory setup with 70's Camaro pedals and Z bar.

The other thing I want is to find a set of factory 70's Bel-Air emblems, if you find a set in the junkyard, how about saving them?

One of these days I am going to get back to working on my FrankenCoupe...........

Nice ride BTW!

Do you have photos/details anywhere? This is relevant to my interest. I went hydraulic with mine because that's all I had the parts and ability for, but I imagine I'd like an old-fashioned mechanical linkage better.
