Sexy Sedan: 1968 Chevrolet Impala

033016 Barn Finds- 1968 Chevrolet Impala - 1

This nice hardtop 1968 Impala sedan is in south Oregon and it’s listed on craigslist with an asking price of $5,500. It sure looks great from the photos and the hidden wipers, new for 1968, really make for a clean look.

The seller says that this is a local owner car purchased new in Medford, OR. It looks like it was just purchased yesterday. These hardtop sedans get to me, in a good way. What an elegant car, especially in this color. This is a fourth-generation Impala and even though I personally like the 1965 model the best, the 1968 is next on my list.

This car looks straight as an arrow and there is no mention of rust at all under this original paint. This car really brings back the memories for me, my dad had one in a green color and it was a great car. There are no engine photos, unfortunately, but this one has a 327 V8. In 1968 that would have meant either 250 or 275 hp, either one would be enough for me.

The seller says that this is all original, but could this seat pattern and fabric be original? It sure looks good in here, but these dash pads always worry me, especially when sellers don’t take them out for photos. I would want to show that the dash top is perfect instead of having a pad over it. Since there is no mention of anything wrong at all with this car, I’ll have to assume that it’s as perfect as everything appears to be. This looks like a winner, at least from the photos that the seller has provided. I like these hardtop sedans. Are you a sedan fan or are there two doors too many here?

    Door panels a different color than the seats. I doubt thats orginal as I think the door panels color would match the seats. Looks to me that the seat fabric was replaced to match the exterior color. Still nice.

    Nice car reminds me of my dads car when I was a kid. His was a gold 1967 SS Impala two door hard top. It had a 327 4 bbl with bucket seats and console shifter. The car in the pic’s was probably green to match the door panal colour. I don’t remember seeing white over black factory paint on these cars, Doesn’t look factory to me.

    Pretty sure that is a factory color, correct two tone paint scheme available in ’68

    Could be a seat cover. Steering wheel does not look original either. Notice someone painted the hubcaps too.

      That is an original 1968 Impala steering wheel. We had the same one in our 68 back in the day.

    Those appear to be slip over seat covers.. They don’t match the upholstery..
    Nice car.. Great find

    looks like a nice driver to me. if no rust this seems like a good deal. i too like the 65’s the best. nice find.

    Those are aftermarket seat covers. It will be nice to know if the seats under those covers are as clean as the rest of the car. This does look like a very nice old car.

    I owned a 2dr version…green with ivy gold interior…I painted the exterior black with crager mags…large ones on the rear. Nice old car this one…but 4doors just not for me. Seat has been redone. Original steering wheel and hubcaps.

    My dad had one of these. It was gray with a black interior and it had a 307 with a powerglide. He loved that car. In the 70s a neighbor of mine purchased a bel air sedan that was that lousy green color the door panels are on this car. It also had the white roof too. He brought it up from Florida and it had super low miles and a six banger. He painted it a darker green and kept the white roof. These were a good year for chevy s.
