Hoping to find one piece of my puzzle...

By Chuckster

Filed under: 1968 Chevrolet Impala Custom (Max(imus))

...hey, does anyone out there have a dual-snorkel air cleaner to fit a Q-Jet on my '68 Impala? The wide-snorkel Z-28 kind would be fantastic, and repops are fine; I'd like to be able to trade for some of the old home audio equipment I've got (receiver, SS receiver, power amp, Nakamichi CD deck, etc), or even a good used CPAP machine (DeVilbiss D-9000, with case---I've got a newer one...), worth easily what a repop assembly would cost.

As to that, if it only has the body, so much better...I'd like to be able to use my original air cleaner lid on it, anyway.

PLEASE let me know via my regular email addy: cmk59 at yahoodotcom, and thanks in advance!!!


Max, the '68 Impala Classic Update

Work is proceeding apace on the ole Impala...fuel tank has been removed and refurbed, new fuel lines and fuel pump added, and the Q-Jet has been cleaned and re-worked. Dual exhausts have been modded and tuned, and the rear axle has been rebuilt to new specs.

Wiring under the hood has been redone for the dual 16" electric fans, and cooling should no longer be an issue.

As soon as I can get her back, work will begin on selling off my collection of old stereo equipment to fund body repair (when the truck hit my trunk, dented the bumper and tweaked the trunk lid), repainting (a Forest Green metallic to match the dash color), and the search for affordable interior parts begins: am/fm/8-track module, center console, StratoBench or StratoBucket seats in front and replacement in back, both vinyl), and interior refurbing. ***sigh*** would that old cars weren't money pits!!!
