Default Just what I need... another car!

My bud's son is selling this barn find '62 Chev for $3500. I hope to see it tomorrow or sometime this weekend. Original 283/powerglide. It runs & drives but brakes need work. Love these cars & think my wife might enjoy it too! Supposedly very little rust & if it's decent I expect it to be in my shop shortly! Also has a clear title!

Always liked those '62s. Be sure to show us what you do with it.

I grew up on those. Only bad wreck I was ever in, mom got head-on at night in a 62 when I was about 13. That 283 powerglide is a nice cruiser and they usually get good mileage, low 20s if you drive soft. One of my buddys in high school had a sweet maroon 62, 250 horse 327/4 speed. Loved that car.
Is this a power-pack or a 2 bbl.?
