1968 Chevrolet Impala
This is an extremely low mileage 1968 Impala 327 convertible 3-speed automatic inexcellent condition, both cosmetic and driving. With so much interest in the car, the original listing wasremoved and revised to clarify details of the engine coding.
Specifically, the engine does not have anystamped serial numbers next to thestamped engine codethat can be traced to the VIN. This could have been a mistake at the assembly plant (they happened), or it could be an Impala engine that was replaced under warranty that did notget VIN serial coded. Regardless, it is still considered the "correct" engin, because of the block casting number (3914678), intake casting number (3919803), stamped engine production year (1968), and engine pad stamp (V1221YW). It is a 1968 V8 327 4 barrel beauty. In addition, the transmission (C8A14)and axel (EU0527B)codes are correct and certainly original.
The major components of the body and interior are also original. All the gauges are original, including the electric clock, which is rare. The dash is perfect, no cracks or fading. The seat vinyl is also in terrific shape, no cracks or tears. The engine bay is very clean. The car has AC,and has been converted from the R12 to 134a. It is incredibly fun to drive, has lots of torque, no wiggles or shimmies, and that sweet V8 sound. Riding down the highway with the top down (power top, power brakes) and 1 finger on the steering wheel at 70 mph is pure joy. This car could be shown as an unrestored original as is, or be completely restored to "concours" for not much money. It would also be a good candidate for a "resto-mod". Only about 1500 miles put on the car in the last 13 years!
Variations from the factory specs are: painted red (coded G2 which is ash gold), interior vinyl dyed white (coded 830 which is gold), new white top (factory was black). It also has a Flowmaster exhaust. In my opinion, these changes (by a prior owner)make the car much sharper and appealing, but could be easily returned to factory specs for a few thousand dollars. I have included pictures of the engine cowl tag and the engine block casting number. I also have picture of the other codes if requested.
This is a great opportunity to purchase a 60's collectible for under the price of a house that will only go up in value, and just in time for Fall.Good luck!
