Resurrecting a Classic Chevy
This is my 1968 Chevy Caprice. It was the very first car I ever worked on as a Student of Auto Body way back 20 years ago. Since then the car has lapsed into obscurity after the transmission went all kerflooey and sat under a cedar tree for 16 years. The needles destroyed the paint, the vinyl top was not replaced when the car was originally fixed, and the interior was ruined when the top gave way. The car had about $3,000 put into the engine (a 327 ci 275 hp engine that is original to the car) and the car overall has about 87,000 original miles. As I stated, the car has sat for the last 16 years and we dragged it to its current location, put a battery in it, and after some tinkering, it started right up. It has a whole tank of $.99 gas in it and it runs smoothly. The peck you hear in the video is an Exhaust leak. If you have any questions, drop me an e-mail.

Location: Cannon AFB, NM
- 1966 Chevrolet Impala
- 2-dr hard-top coupe
- Impala blue w/ matching interior
- Chevy 327 engine 2-speed Powerglide
- power steering
- woking A/C and radio (original)
- 13x7 chrome spoke wheels (lead knock-off hammer included)

This car is beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice! It is my baby and has been garage-kept its entire life. It has been my weekend cruiser/fun car, but it could easily be a daily driver. The engine is original and runs strong - I have never had any problems with it. The interior is also original and is almost PERFECT - no rips, cuts, tears, and little to no wear whatsoever. Be aware: the Exhaust is LOUD - I have never gotten a ticket for noise, but this car definitely turns heads wherever I go! I guarantee satisfaction! I just gave the car a tune-up in preparation for the sale, please see details below. I hate to part with it, but my upcoming wedding takes priority!
THE BAD: 1 of the 2 driver's side tail lights is out (easy fix!). The speedometer runs a little fast due to the smaller wheels. Turn signal lever is included but not attached to the steering column. The body paint has minor nicks/scratches and wear associated with the age of the car (not very noticeable at a distance - just look at the pictures!)
- oil change w/ new filter
- radiator flush and coolant change
- new water pump
- new belts (all)
- new fuel filter
- new spark plugs w/ wires
- new distributor cap and rotor
