This Chevy is listed on craigslist in Sunland, California, in the Los Angeles area. It was off the road from 1989 until recently. This Chevy runs and drives and might be a reasonable buy for $8,000. The seller is the second owner. The 327 has been rebuilt and the interior is being redone. There’s not likely any rust. It just needs paint and a few trim pieces.
The interior needs a good cleaning. The upholstery will be alright if the new covers are done well. It looks like it won’t take much to make this a nice car inside.
The engine has been rebuilt. It would be nice to know what was done in the rebuild.
If this Impala is rust free and the engine rebuild was done well, does this look like a good starting point for a project? Some of us may not like the period wheels and the interior will need more work, but perhaps it’s a good starting place. Unless that is a very bad repaint, I would try to polish it up a bit and perhaps do a bit of touchup, and concentrate instead on the mechanical work it needs. What do you think this Chevy might be worth as it is?
