Description of 1968 Chevrolet Impala Custom 2 door

1968 Impala SS Custom

Up for auction is my 1968 Impala SS Custom Coupe. This car is in overall very good condition. This is an iconic ride that I have had the pleasure of owning and working on. Historically, Impala has been Chevrolet's premier sports sedan; this is one of the best years of Impala you can own. Please review my auction and all of the information I have provided. This car is 99% complete, turn key, and road ready. You can drive it home.

Engine & Drivetrain

This car is somewhat of a resto-mod, with classic looks, but also has had some subtle updates which I will layout in short time. The engine compartment in this vehicle is absolutely gorgeous. The engine has been upgraded to a fresh GM Goodwrench Crate 350 that runs flawlessly. It has an Edelbrock 600cfm Carburetor and Long Tube Headers leading to a Dual Exhaust. Many of the accessories have been updated with chrome, including the oil pan, brake power booster, all the pulleys, valve covers, air cleaner and alternator. It has a double walled Aluminum Radiator so you can drive cool all day. The transmission is a TH350 3 speed which shifts very well. I am not sure what the rear end ratio is but the car does ride very nice at 75 MPH and still has plenty of "get up and go" from a dead stop.


The interior on this vehicle is also in excellent condition and is a really nice place to spend time. The car has super comfortable front and rear leather bench seats. The dash overall is very nice, I'd say a 7 out of 10 in condition. The gauges seem to be all original and everything works as it should. It has that classic 60's impala look but with a couple of upgrades as well. The steering wheel was updated with a "Rosewood Style" wheel.The column mounted shifter was removed in favor of a 4 speed column and afloor mounted B&M Mega Shifter. It has an original Delco AM radio worked until recently, then stopped all of a sudden. Hopefully its an easy fix. The headliner is almost perfect, unfortunately a small quarter size hole formed right near the driver's side visor. It could more than likely be repaired rather than replaced. It has a heater box but unfortunately the blower motor failed. It was a project I keep saying i'll get to, but since the weather had been so nice I've been driving it more than working on it. Its your responsibility now.As such, the heater motor in the car doesn't currently operate, however it's as simple as installing a new blower motor.

The Body

The vehicle is an older restoration (approximately 10 years old). It was repainted a sharp bronze metallic. Although the paint work was done correctly with all of the emblems and trim removed, the bodywork was sub par in my opinion. The car looks great from 5 feet away, but the rest of the car is so well done at times the paint does detract from how magnificent this car could look with a better paint job. With that said, you could easily drive this car another 5 years and get thumbs up wherever you go; but the only way to do an iconic car like this the justice it deserves would be to repaint it. With that said, the body condition overall is "good" there are paint chips, cracks, and spider webbing. On the body itself there are some rust bubbles forming around the quarter panels and on the front fender, but THE CAR IS SOLID OVERALL. What the car lacks in paint it makes up in integrity. The floors on this car are solid as well as the truck pans, the frame on the car is very clean, no rust or rot at all, and the body is complete, not missing anything from what I can tell. The bottom line, with simply a quality paint job, this could be a real head turner. I have taken this into account and the car has been priced like wise. It is my hope that the next owner will pick up where I left off and complete it to the perfection I wanted to see it in.

Wheels Tires & Brakes

Last but not least the wheels tires and brakes are all in good condition. It has original discs in front and drums in the rear. They stop... as you'd expect a power assisted car from the 60's to stop. Pads in front look just about new. I am not sure what type of wheels we have on it, but they are chrome and lend themselves to the resto mod look. They are in overall "fair" condition and unfortunately have somepitting aschrome wheels tend to. They are wrapped in fairly new tires as well. I would estimate the tire tread to be between 50-60%.

As I mentioned before this is a car you could get in and drive. I wish I didn't have to let her go, butI have other obligations at the moment. I have set what I believe to be a fair price but I will consider all fair offers as well. Please review the additional material I posted below.
