1968 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible

The owner of this car purchased it brand new in 1968, it was his first new car. He drove it and enjoyed just like a normal new car of the late 60's - 70's and in 1983, it got parked in the garage in which I found it.

This very solid SS has some interesting options that make her a rather low production number car.

She is an SS, Convertible, 4 Speed Muncie

Those three items make her 1 of less than 2000 of the 700,000+ Impalas made in 1968. That is less than 1% of the Impalas manufactured in 1968 matched those specifications. This car also has the bucket seats and console, which may bring those numbers lower.

The car is a ONE owner car, 62000 miles, all numbers matching, 327/250 4 bbl V8.

Original color was Fathom Blue Iridescent over a black vinyl interior, with white convertible top. The original title, original window sticker and original dealership bill of sale are included.

Options on her are AM Radio, 8-Track player, Bucket seats, console, 4 speed Muncie transmission, power brakes and power top.

The frame and floors are very solid, as is most of the body. Surface rust is prominent across all body panels and beneath, however, the only rot I could find is on both rear quarters and a spot on each front fender. I did a test clean on one of the door panels and it cleaned up remarkably well... That would make it rather tempting to attempt a resurrection as opposed to a full on restoration... The engine turns by hand, so, me being me, if I could get the engine running, I'd clean the livin bajeesus out of her and drive her like she is... (I'd pull the top off and eventually get another)

With pristine versions of this car selling in the $40,000 range, we feel that $5500 is not an unreasonable asking price.

Any questions, to schedule a time to see her in person or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for the interest.
