800 Derita Road, Ste. A
You stopped to look at this 1968 Chevrolet Impala because it's a great-looking hardtop at an affordable price. But then when you see it's a V8 coupe that revels in being very vintage while also being a good cruiser for today.
The squared-off roofline of this Impala is a bit different, and Chevy fans know this is something very special. 1968 was the first year for the Impala Custom Coupe. This gave the Impala the same roofline as the top-dog Caprice. It gives this coupe some added prestige to its full-sized line. And speaking of the body lines, this Impala really knows how to show them off. Good sheet metal fit shows off the outstretched front fenders, smooth trunk, and the sporty lines that seem to all meet in the large doors. You'll occasionally sport upgrades to make this a better cruiser. For example, the 18-inch alloys mean better tires. But overall, this one keeps a vintage attitude. That's why they took the time to give this a nice respray of the factory-correct Grecian Green later in life, the form-hugging bumpers have an attractive originality, and there are even cool details, like possibly the original dealer tag on the trunk.
The interior continues the vintage cool feeling. You have two wide rows of bench seats that look great, right down to the button-top seatbacks. It makes for the kind of space where family and friends can really spread out on an ice cream run. There're even provisions for air conditioning - it has been upgraded to R134a but will likely need a recharge to blow cold again. And while it makes for a fun driver, this one is likely to impress the vintage car fans the most. It's in the details everywhere from the working AM radio to the dome light that greets you when the doors open.
The engine is a later upgrade, but it does keep the appearance where most people will just assume it's original. Not only does this 327 cubic-inch small block have an honest style, but you'll also sport good maintenance - including newer plugs, wires, and the distributor cap. It fires up easily, drives nicely, and the two-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. Plus, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern tires keep this classic a solid cruiser.
This Impala Custom Coupe has an impressive classic style all over its unique body. So at this affordable price, you know you need to hurry to take it home. Call now!
