1968 chevrolet biscayne impala station wagon SOLID frame minimal rust extras
looking to sell my 1968 chevrolet biscayne station wagon.
History: This wagon originated & spent most of its life in southern & salt free climates, which is why its so solid underneath. It was sold new at Kidd motors in hart well georgia, may 3, 1968. The original buyer was nancy matthews & most of the original documentation is present, as is the protecto-plate and original build sheet.
Originally came w/the L-35 396 motor &TH400 (as shown on build sheet). These items were removed about 5 years ago by previous owner & replaced w/a 70’s vintage 350/350 package. Last owner looked at the car when the original 396 was still in it.
The original 12-bolt w/ 3.31 gears still present. The car has tight power steering & manual drum brakes which work well. The car was originally ordered without A/C
Motor: 1978 camaro z28 350 small 110 block, HEI, new quickfuel carburetor & many new parts (listed). Had a short rebuild done: cam kit done, rebuilding most of engine - new cam shaft, new valve seals, new alternator, rebuilt radiator, new pcv valve, but now the crank shaft is loose, so short rebuild didn’t work. The car still runs and moves, but its not working correctly. I was trying to work w/the down south built motor, & just as i got it done, the crank shaft problem occurred .
Transmission: 350 3-speed auto, shifts well, but does have a small leak somewhere, as most typically do.
Interior: Original gold/tan vinyl, well worn & cleaned. Dash has 6” crack. Headliner is pretty good, nothing falling down. Carpet is orig & faded, have new carpeting included, needs to be cut, but not put in yet. Door panels re-dyed but still orig.(1 taken off, included) Windows all around have trouble up & down & all need resealing & new rubber. Doors all close well, & all glass is good w/out any cracks. Rear door crank broke on me, w/window up thankfully, but not fixed. Rear glass needed help both ways when it was working, off track? not sure.
Body: Body filler used around rear quarter lips, looked good until a flat ripped a small piece out of the Drivers side rear 1/4, still looks good.
Paint: Small paint chipping on roof & several small chips, looks good but was a cheap 10-20 footer paint job w/imperfections. Not show paint, but still looks good.
Under carriage: Very good for a 50+ yr old car! Frame is solid, w/only 1 small rear piece i can see w/rust. Front floor pans need replacing or patching, but barely can tell when driving. HD suspension & 12-HD rear end.
Lights: All work, Reverse lights stay on, crossed a wire somewhere. Horn & key buzzer work. Dash lights are fussy, knob has to be in exact position or they won’t come on. New headlights.Car has factory radio-delete plate present, no radio or A/C
Misc.: Flowmaster mufflers just retightened, repiped from what was on there, flex pipes(now gone) & all welded in tight. rear bumper needs replacing.

I spent 6 years looking & bought this car for the solid frame, my short rebuild just to have the car running while a did a 20 year restoration plan did not go as planned. Wanted it as a driver, but engine needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Have & drove the car for 3 yrs now & was just done when the crankshaft problem came up, now need to wait to replace motor, since it might be years, thought i would try selling.
Clear title in my name. I have tons of paperwork on the car. If your looking for a Resto project, this car would be perfect.
Paypal or Wire Transfer ONLY……$500 within 24 hours of committing to purchase. I will supply routing #s/accnt. Remainder must be cash, wire transfer or paypal, before car/title will be released. No checks or money orders of any kind accepted.
Shipping is up to you, the car is iffy on any trip, so a you might not make it on a long drive. Will work w/u if u have a shipper pick it up. Title is in my name, & will be filled out w/buyers info w/seperate bill of sale before title/car leave my possession.
Have large folder of Maintenance records throughout its life, an what i did to it. Will send list when needed.
Have all orig parts taken out, & many extra’s to go along w/car, including 4 new cooper cobra tires ($650), new spare. 2 good cragers, & 2 beat up cragers. Car cover included.
Was never planning to sell, but this is still a Great Resto project for someone looking to do the same.
Tough to take more pics, so please come take a look in person.
