Description for Chevrolet Impala 1968

1968 Chevy Impala Custom Coupe

1 owner 1968-2013 Documented 51,000 Original Miles (When purchased April 2013)


I purchased this Impala Custom Coupe at Spring Carlisle 2013 and it currently has 53,363 miles. It features a 307 w/Powerglide, power steering, manual drum brakes, tinted glass, windshield washer, AM/FM pushbutton radio and it's original vinyl top. The car appears to feature most of its original Butternut Yellow lacquer paint. After removed from 16 year "barn find" storage in 2012, it was buffed & polished. The original owner obviously appreciated the value in keeping a car as original as possible. He was a classic car collector with 9 vintage Cadillac's, eventually the Impala was placed in storage from 1997 until the sale of his estate in 2013. This is a solid, low mileage survivor, never undercoated so it shows storage patina on the floors and undercarriage. Lower fenders, rockers, lower door seams, all solid, it drives like a new car on it's new radial redline tires. Original spare in trunk. The grill and front end chrome trim is almost like new condition. I've enjoyed this almost 50 year old honey for 4 years. Price Guide and Old Cars Report has this model trending up over the past 2 years.To those that appreciate history and how difficult it is to find one owner examples such as these, you understand the value in finding one of these survivors. It's not a muscle car but since 2013 it's never failed me weather to car show or cruises. If you're looking for a reliable cruiser, this is it. The car currently sports it's original 14" wheels & red line radials with Chevy simulated mag hub caps, but I'll also include with the car the other set of 4- 15" Rally wheels with classic bias ply tires.
