Dare to Be Different - 1968 Chevy Impala SS 427

A viable alternative that's still daring and different, the 1968 Chevy Impala SS 427. SS 427 Impalas are very distinctive and unique. Sales were modest, so finding an Impala SS 427, especially a convertible, could be a little challenging.


Classic Car Overview

1955 Ford Thunderbird Normal wear, some pitting on chrome and RUST FREE! Not a show car, but a wonderful driver. It would not take much to make show ready. This car has been in storage and covered up for 39 years in the Pacific Northwest and was just uncovered a few months ago with 91,000 miles and is ready for sale. You are looking at an excellent driver, not a show car! This car has always been garage kept. This car DOES have a power seat, telescoping steering wheel, power windows and power steering that all work, and does not have a hard top. In the last 6 months this car has had many upkeep items and service to get the car running again after a 39 year sleep. Many items are brand new or refurbished. The paint is black lacquer that was applied 41 years ago along with a new seat cover and convertible top. It is missing the radio as well but you would most likely change this any way. Brand new parts include new clutch and pressure plate with new throw out bearing. The flywheel was also resurfaced and the 3 speed transmission received new gaskets to repair some leaking while it was out. We also installed new u joints while we had everything out and apart. The differential gasket was changed along with fresh fluids in every part of the car. The oil filter was converted to a spin on filter and we have the old cylinder filter as well. This 3 speed has over drive but it is not working. We installed the following NEW PARTS: Belts, spark plugs, points, rotor, condenser, distributor cap, plug wires with holders, oil cap, gas cap, water pump, thermostat, tires, brakes, master cylinder, brake cylinders, brake lines, transmission boot, coil, value cover gaskets, battery, heater control value, heater duct gaskets, step plates, exhaust manifold gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, air cleaner cork, wiper blade arms and blades, outside mirror, electronic turn signal, new trunk matts and side broads. We also added new tail light and parking light lenses as well. We have over $3,000 in just parts with all receipts and this does NOT include any labor. We pulled the gas tank, radiator and heater core and had all of them rotted out and all pressure checked. Too many new nut, bolts, washers and gaskets to mention. There does not appear to be any leaks in this car today after all of the repairs. The car starts runs and drives great just like a 1955 Bird should.
