1968 Chevrolet Impala
Have you checked the price on this 1968 Chevrolet Impala? Turns out affordability also means plenty of originality as this large and sleek coupe comes in the correct colors (with subtle upgrades) and even its original V8.
The first impression a classic makes is everything, and that's why this coupe is so appealing. Grecian Green is a great '60s color, and this factory-correct shade has been treated to at least one respray over its lifetime to keep the nostalgia factor high. Plus, nothing says period-correct premium like a black vinyl roof. It's a fantastic way to show off the sporty roofline of this hardtop. And the black trim line not only matches the roof, but also it highlights how straight this sheetmetal is even as this coupe approaches the half-century mark. Of course, it can't be a true classic American without some great brightwork. Up front, the designers were definitely in charge, because we love how the wraparound bumper also bisects the grille. And in the rear, the bumper masterfully fits into the design while also integrating the Impala's hallmark triple taillights. And completing this cool cruising package are a set of iconic Rally wheels.
We always like it when the vinyl roof is also a preview of the interior color. It just seems to give a classic an added touch of premium. Plus, during this car's lifetime, the factory-correct black seats were upgraded to a more comfortable cloth. That makes this full-size coupe even more appealing for bringing along family and friends. This is a terrific period-correct cruiser with all of its trim intact and plenty of original features even the factory AM radio is still on display! This one has the right kind of charm that plenty of others take notice, too (did you see the awards in the trunk yet?) So you'll love slipping behind the factory three-spoke steering wheel, gazing at the ultra wide speedometer, and just letting the miles eat away.
Under the hood is one of the most honest engine bays you'll ever see. Plenty of people are going to peek inside to marvel at its condition, because after all, true originality is hot right now. And while it's appearance means no one will ever have to ask you if it's the factory motor, you have the assurance of knowing it really is numbers-matching. And as you look closer, the condition of the belts let you know that originality doesn't mean neglecting maintenance. This 327 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeply through a Rochester four-barrel carburetor, and exhales freely out of a stainless dual exhaust system. And the original TH400 three-speed automatic combines with power steering and the Impala's legendary cushy ride to deliver a great cruising experience.
This is the big and sleek coupe with great originality and plenty of personality. So when its priced so right, you know this coupe won't stay with us long. Call today!!!
