Description:

It shouldn''t be news to anyone that big Impalas like this 1968 hardtop are being snatched up by collectors as quickly as we can find them. V8 power, full-sized comfort, lots of options, and a great oversized muscle car look and you have one of the sleeper hits of the last few years. This one is a good, clean car in an unusual color that will be fun to drive and will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention at shows. The color is called Ash Gold, and it''s one of those funky yet cool colors from the ''60s that stayed under the radar when it was new and looks totally period slick today. The GT paint code says it also had a Palomino Ivory top, but when it was repainted a few years ago, they went with a single tone and I think it works better that way when you have this much sheetmetal to deal with. It certainly looks sharp and crisp, particularly the arches over the rear quarters, suggesting that it was a clean car to start with, since this stuff isn''t available from the aftermarket. No, it''s not flashy, but this car has presence and with the wide variety of engine options available in these cars, it''s always wise to treat them with respect, no matter what the color. There are still six taillights set into the bright chrome bumper out back, reminding you that this is Chevy''s top-of-the-line machine. All the trim remains bright and shiny and it''s obvious that a lot of extra time went into making everything fit together just right. More funky period-correct colors inside, which GM also oddly called "Gold." Whatever the name, it has survived the intervening decades in great shape with just minor fading but not rips or tears in the seat materials and carpets that still look great thanks to matching mats. There''s room for six in the big Imp, so if you''re looking to go cruising with a full crew, this is the car to take. The instrument panel puts everything in front of the driver, with the wide speedometer dominating the view. Up top, the vinyl dash pad hasn''t been cooked by the sun, and there''s an aftermarket A/C unit underneath which was a popular add-on during the period. The original AM radio has been upgraded with an AM/FM/CD unit, because this car was made for highway trips, especially with that massive trunk, which still carries its original spare tire. Power is provided with a 327 cubic inch V8 which makes the Impala a fun performer. It''s too bright and clean to be original, and it''s obvious that someone has taken great care of it since the freshening. The A/C has been converted to R134a refrigerant, and power brakes and steering make this car easy to drive despite its size. A recent dual exhaust system with chrome tips gives it a great small-block note, and with heavy-duty components like the TH400 3-speed automatic and 12-bolt rear, you probably don''t have to worry about breaking it. Sporty Rally wheels give it a bit of an attitude and carry big 235/70/15 white-letter radials. These cars are not going to stay under the radar for much longer, and we can''t seem to keep them in stock. Don''t miss another opportunity and call us today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
