Re: post cars

Really cool look, but the panels and trim are no as easy to find as the hard top and verts if you need to repair or finish.

66 Malibu Coupe, home rebuilt 350. Took me 39 years to get her!

Re: post cars

They weren't popular, when new, that is why you don't see many. Probably still the same today. Not sure about Chevy, but the Olds were bought by guys that wanted to race them, and they weighted a little less than a hard top.

Didn't know they weighed less, thought they used them because they are more rigid.

if you lost a race because of 20 pounds you have other issues

but the real problem with 2 door sedans is the aftermarket world has not caught up with them. either in body panels or interior parts. so if you have one in bad shape your going to have to be creative

Re: post cars

The post cars are more rigid because of the post, full frame doors and I think an extra body mount. The rear quarters are different and the rear deck is completely different where it meets the rear glass so good luck on finding those. They are listed about 50 pounds lighter for some reason.

Re: post cars

Rare in this case does not equate to valuable. Back in the day the post cars were the not so popular inexpensive dealership lost leaders. They are still not high on the popularity scale other than using them as a blank slate for what ever you dream up.

Re: post cars

Not a fan of the 64-67 post cars. 68-69 don't look too bad. Don't think i have ever seen a 64 post car though. Post a pic when/if you can.

Re: post cars

i bought it with a genV 454 3 years ago and put in an LS5 last year.
I also bought it with a 3 inch cowl fiberglass hood and somehow found a steel hood on craigslist.

Re: post cars

Over the weekend we were at Back To The 50's here in MN. The hotel we stayed at was full of neat cars every night. One in particular I kept going back to look at was a '64 300 2 door. Plain Jane, light blue with patina everywhere. Lowered slightly, fat tires in the rear, painted steel wheels and small hubcaps. Get this....an LS swap with a 3 speed stick on the column! Still had the original weathered bench seat interior. Just plain cool to me.....

My phone crapped out so I didn't get pics, but I think the S-I-L did. I'll try and get them posted.

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.
