1966 Chevrolet Impala
FOR SALE: $13,000 OR BEST OFFER!!!
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)
- twin straight pipe Exhaust w/ chrome tips (LOUD!!!)
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
For additional info or any questions, please leave a comment and I will get back with you as soon as possible.
