1962 Chevrolet Impala
This car has been in mine and one other family for 34 years. During that time it has been garaged and started once in awhile, t has not been driven more than 200 miles during that time. the miles show 9400 +/-. It is very hard to determine if they are original or not, he car is very clean and the pedals don't show 100,000 miles of use no way to prove either way but look at it and decide for yourself. The story we were told from the original owner when the car was bought was that he bought itnew and only drag raced it at the local track in the 60's and then stored it. The motor is not original and its been awhile since I dug up the numbers, ut I think it is a late 60's 350. a few years ago I replaced the wheel cylinders and master cylinder to make the car drivable, put maybe 40 miles on it, t still runs strong and does not smoke, he speedometer cable was squeaking and quit working. Under the hood is very clean and the car does not show to have had anything messed with other than the motor replaced. It does look to have had a re spray at some point but know signs of any kind of wreck, ery straight. inside the trunk is very clean and original. I have not washed or cleaned this car in years, t is presented as it is. I do have the original tires and wheels and hub caps. When I say original tires they may not be original but are bias ply not radials. Now for the bad on the car. It is 90% or better rust free. I want to be clear on this description Since the only negative feedback was from a feller that expected a 50,000 show car for 8,000. The underneath of the car is very solid with mainly surface rust. It does have some rust on both rear body mounts behind the rear tires. It also has some on both sides at the end by the rocker panels on a body cross brace. the rockers may have a slight amount but solid for the most part, gain everyone has a different opinion, ut the car is by know means a rust bucket it is solid.
