Well I have restored two cars and have moved onto my third project.  This time it is a 1963 Skylark; this will not be a restoration.  I will be making this a daily driver so some modifications will be happening.  I have gained a lot of information from other peoples forum threads so I thought this time I would do one of my own.  I have very thick skin so blast away it will not bother me.  I know a lot of people are Buick purists (I am not).  I drive 75 miles a day minimum so overdrive is a must.  So to craiglist I went; I found a 1996 impala LT1 with OD 4L60E trans. with aftermarket harness and pcm for $800.  Pictures have always helped me in the past so I will be including many.  I am in no hurry and budget will be a concern for sure.  I am not shooting for a perfect paint show car I want to leave this car in Los Angeles parking lots and not worry about the car.1963 Skylark project Img_1915

I will try and post the pictures again tonight.  Still trying to figure it out.  But I do have another update I got the engine running on the stand with the help of a friend.

Awesome to hear you got it running! No issues to report I hope?! No need to apologize about what you're doing with your ride, sticking with OEM isn't necessarily in a rodders blood is it?! Changing things to our own liking is what this hobby is all about! Very Happy

Sheerider i am doing a 63 as well. Are Rims 15's? I have 13's and would like to get the right size and offset for 15's. My suspension is toast as well and would like it to sit a bit than it is not sure if you have looked at that yet or not. The car seems in good shape.

As far as the motor I was looking to swap as well but the tunnel is small and the mods would be more than I can handle. Great to see yours hen its in.
