Went to a local swapmeet at the end of May and got some stuff. Nitrous fogger system with a bunch of jets and a bottle with heater and some feed lines from bottle to solenoid in -6 as well as some -4 lines and it has a fuel reg plumbed in. Also got a new aluminum short waterpump for bigblock with a fancy aluminum pulley. Brand new with only dyno time on it. Also got a part for my '69 chevelle...a new reproduction driver door skin for like $80. Has some minor shipping damage (easy fix with some hammer and dolly work) but alot better than dents, rust, and bondo on my door now. Also no gravel guard to remove or deal with (I hate that stuff).

Got a couple more '66 impala parts cars recently too. Both are/were factory black cars with red interiors originally. That makes it 145 b- body chevs I have personally had.

Some good parts on them still....this one was last on the road in '74. Rear lic plate still on it. It certainly had a rough life.

The other one had a colorful life. Started out black then it was green then metalflake red and then back to black but with red flake pearl. Was a nice looking car the last time it was done with lots of new parts but also alot of bondo and all the trim removed and holes welded up. The guy I got it from owned the car a few times. Sold it and bought it back for less than he sold it for last couple of times. He made the mistake of stripping the paint and pulling the car apart when he should have just drove it for awhile first he said. It has been sitting for 10 years stripped in a leaky rv tent. Hasn't really rusted that bad for how long it has been sitting. I was supposed to get this car 10 years ago but he was undecided what to do with it or what it was worth.

Anybody know what the paint code or color is? Cowl tag got knocked off during engine and trans swap and then got lost by prev owner. Kind of a plum or dark burgundy fine metallic . Looks nice in the sunlight.

Dan,
It does appear to be Royal Plum (M) but that is a 1967 color. Rob needs to look further for another 66 color.

 ...in 66 they list Madeira Maroon 'N' code......but no plum listed.

Firewall may have been painted something else (Plum?) at sometime as I believe 66 firewalls were all black,

unless this is a Canadian car and may have been painted body color.

Canadian car and this color is everywhere on the car. In the trunk and bottom of lid is still original paint. Car has been repainted this color several times but last time car was painted black on outside before it got the primer that's on it now.
