RE: The last 409 car?


That Fat Boy looks very similar to mine, except for the pipes. What year is it?

I know of a 65 Custom Sport 409 (L33) (M20) which was built in mid-April of 1965 , engine was built March 02 (Tonawanda).

Just out of curiosity, did the 348 continue into 1962? When I was an apprentice the shop owner had a Strato Chief Safari with a 348. The car was originally a 261 and he put the 348 out of a 58 Impala in it. I ask because it was mentioned way back then that you were still able to get a 348 in 62.

I was reading my comments of five years ago... This summer I bought 3 409 Chevys. A 62 Impala 409 425 with a five-speed Tremec, a 62 Bel-Air with a 409 425 with a T-10 four-speed, and a 63 Biscayne 409 425, that one's a 340 horsepower Glide block, but I don't care, it's built up pretty nice with a Muncie M20. They're all totally not original cars, and I'll get into details the next time I write. It's 1 in the morning, time for bed

I'm using the telephone app on my Android, and I don't see any button to press to post pictures. I have lots of pictures, but here's a video that a friend of mine made this summer in Ste Ane De Prescott Ontario, when I and another friend of mine (friends since 13, he's behind the wheel of my '62 409 Impala in the next video, he also has a restored '72 Vista Cruiser, and a '66 Olds 98 survivor that was partially destroyed in a fire, that's next year's restoration project after he finishes lightly restoring the '66 98 that he bought for parts, but it was too good to part out. But that's a story for another day) beating the crap out of my '63 Biscayne. It's currently at my mother's condo in Montreal. Sleeping of course https://youtu.be/dGK9HjTUqMw And my '62 Impala 5 speed... it's currently at a friends barn near Hamilton Ontario, I found it on the 348-409 Forum 6 years ago when it had a 348 th350, I have tons of bills, but nothing more on the history, but I'll look into it. https://youtu.be/KK2CmEmHTZI And I also have a 62 Bel-Air, I'm the third owner, it was a 283 Powerglide, it's at my house. I bought it in Simi Valley California, drove to Phoenix, not without problems, and I trucked it back to New York.

Back in the 1980's i remember seeing a sad looking 65 with a 409 at a number of southern Ontario car shows. The car was painted with what looked like Canadian Tire spray bombs. The colour was not a factory colour and kind of looked like a very sad teal. This 65 had some real tacky mags on it, i think they were Appliance mags. The 409 had the chrome valve covers and air cleaner on it but i can not recall if it was a 340 or the higher horse version. I can not recall if it was a four gear or a glide. I saw this car a number of times for a while and then it just vanished. I wonder if someone eventually properly restored it and i wonder where it is today.
