Description for Chevrolet Impala 1963

I’m selling this 1963 Impala. It spent most of its life in a garage. Shows 85,XXX on the odometer but I’m not sure how many actual miles are on the car. It came with a 327 from the factory but I don’t think the block is original. Seems to have a 3 speed transmission so I don’t believe the transmission is original. New edelbrock carb that runs great after being warmed up and could use a carb tune but it's definitely a car you could drive daily, take to shows, leave as-is, or restore as you drive.
The interior was redone in recent years and I believe the interior is complete other than the radio missing. It comes with an original red Impala steering wheel as well as the installed aftermarket wheel. Many new parts original and newer parts are on the car.
Paint looks great in photos and has some imperfections. Body has some bubbling/rust around but for the most part. I believe it was an original black tuxedo black car according to the cowl tag but I don’t know for sure. Trunk shows some rot through but is solid for the most part. Rust on the underside is minimal and I don’t think there is any structural rust. We get around 5 days of snow a year in East Tennessee so we don’t salt the roads!
I have hundreds of photos I can send to you, as well as take more. I can take a video of it starting and running. Not fully restored however minimal rust compared to most.
The car is located in Knoxville Tennessee and it has a Clean Tennessee title with my name on it. Call (805) 405-0765 with any questions.
