Rarely do you get an opportunity at a true all-around stunner at an obtainable price. But this nicely restored 1968 Chevrolet Impala Custom Coupe is exactly that. Bold paint, interesting big block power, and great upgrades like four-wheel disc brakes makes it the one classic you’ll want for everything.
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, so this one not only has Super Sport badges, but also a very regal appearance. Bringing these ideas of performance and premium together perfectly is the paint. This coupe has gone through a restoration that has resulted in a beautiful shade of burgundy that has been applied to some of the straightest sheetmetal around. It’s an aggressive red appearance, but the deeper luster of premium paint with a fine wine name. And to go with the shimmering paint is some terrific brightwork. The nicely integrated front bumper, trim around the windows, and the cool rear bumper with the Impala’s hallmark integrated triple taillights have a fantastic mirror shine. You’ll love the other details, too. Especially how the grille is painted to match the body, and even the steel on the iconic rally wheel package has the shimmering burgundy.
This dual luxury and performance attitude continues on the nicely restored interior. The black bucket seats are padded for comfort, and the comfortable center console with iconic horseshoe shifter completes the proper SS packaging. A full size car like this can comfortably carry up to five people with ease, but even when you’re just cruising by yourself, this Impala is a great choice. After all, you’re going to love grabbing the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and gazing at the classic speedometer that’s as long as the horizon. Plus, the pillarless profile that comes from rolling down all the windows on this premium hardtop is worth the price all on its own.
With a full-size classic Chevy that’s been so well presented so far, you’re going be pleased when you lift the hood and see that the big block is dressed to impress, too. This is a built 366 cubic-inch V8 which is a rarity that will make enthusiasts and car show judges happy. And the bright orange block with shining valve covers and air topper are true attention-getters. But more importantly, you’ll be delighted with the performance upgrades. The big block inhales deeply from a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. It exhales with authority from a set of long tube headers that feed the rumbling stainless dual exhaust. And the TCI 400 three-speed automatic is stout enough to handle all this extra muscle. But more than just a big power machine, this was built to drive. That’s why you have great features like the aluminum radiator, new gas tank, and new alternator. Plus, there’s upgraded coilover springs in the front, and desirable training arms in the rear rear, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, the one classic that you'll want to be seen in everywhere is also easy to drive anywhere. So when it's available today at such an affordable price, you need to act quickly before it's gone. Call now!!
