Ok, so just buy this one, make an offer, fix the rust, stick a damn column shifter on it and order the steaks will ya! How hard is it? We're all hanging in for ya man, but fair dinkum! :-)

That's not bad at all. Unless he's completely desperate, there's no way he'll go down to $15k.

A stock 2 barrel 327 making 270 hp??? In your dreams. I don't know what the specs are for an Aussie Impala, but if it was anymore than 220 hp, I'd be surprised...

Wikipedia entry(my source) note the bold section

"1967

The 1967 Chevrolet full-size was redesigned with enhanced Coke bottle styling. Dimensions remained roughly the same, still on a 119-inch wheelbase, four inches longer than the mid-size Chevrolet Chevelle. Impala Sport Coupes had a graceful fastback roof line, which flowed in an unbroken line into the rear deck. In keeping with federal regulations, safety features were built into Impalas during the 1967 and 1968 model years, including a fully collapsible energy-absorbing steering column, side marker lights, and shoulder belts for closed models. Most engine offerings were carryover from 1966 including the base 250 cubic-inch Turbo Thrift 6 (155 horsepower) and 283 cubic-inch Turbo Fire V-8 (195 horsepower), and optional 275-horsepower 327 cubic-inch Turbo Fire V-8 and 325-horsepower 396 cubic-inch Turbo Jet V-8, with a 385-horsepower 427 cubic-inch Turbo Jet V-8 now the top offering as the high-performance 425-horsepower version of the 427 offered in 1966 was not listed in the 1967 specifications. The two-speed Powerglide automatic was the only shiftless transmission offered with the 250 6 and 283 V-8, but the three-speed Turbo Hydramatic was now available with the 327 V-8 along with the big-block 396 and 427 V-8s. New options for 1967 included front-disc brakes (standard with the SS-427 option), stereo 8-track player, fiber optic light monitoring system and vacuum power door locks. Cloth-and-vinyl upholstery was standard in most closed body styles, but all-vinyl upholstery was a new option at extra-cost in several colors on all sedan and coupe body styles (heretofore all-vinyl trim was offered as an option on the Sport Coupe and Sport Sedan hardtop body styles in "black" only since 1963), and remained standard equipment on convertible and station wagon models, again in several colors. All Impala models for 1967 also featured upgraded door panels with carpeting on the lower section."

All the OZ delivered 327s had 4 barrel carbs, they were Carters till 66 then Qjets.
I don't know why they had different HP ratings to the US, but I'd guess, they've all been rebuilt, with unknown internals, so it's meaningless anyway Yes, I'm that bored

You're right. I missed the 2 barrel bit. The 240hp of the local offering, and the 275 yank offering were 4 barrel (Quadrajets).

From what I could find out the 240hp version in the US was a special order item, usually reserved for fleet cars (Taxi's & Police). Not a common engine over there.
