Topless Antelope: 1964 Chevrolet Impala Convertible


This Chevrolet Impala convertible wasn’t very attractive at first glance. It’s offered here on eBay at no reserve, and the seller’s rating initially put me off. But a little more searching showed that someone apparently clicked the wrong button when rating them (based on the comment attached) and I started looking more closely at the car. It’s been sitting for many years under cover in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, and the seller states it’s only missing “2 pieces of trim and a radio knob.” I’m not sure that’s all that is missing, but it does look relatively complete and original. Yes, there’s rust in the rockers, but the floor pictures look reasonably solid. I’d like to eventually have a large American 60’s-70’s convertible strictly as a three-season fun car. The 283 and automatic in this one should be trouble-free once re-commissioned and there’s nowhere in the US that you couldn’t get repair work done. Want to go cruising in an Impala?

    Look at the feedback though, the negative rating had a positive comment, so it was likely a mistake on the buyer’s part accidentally clicking the wrong button.

    If I was able, I would take it in a heartbeat, as I’ve always wanted a 64 rag.

    Negative feedback doesn’t happen on accident. Ebay ask about 15 times if you are sure you want to leave a negative comment. If it is truly an error, ebay will remove it. But that takes effort on the sellers part. I would avoid a seller that doesn’t put in that effort.

    Umm, no Negatives happen for a variety of reasons, one of the big problems with FeeBay these days. (along with a host of other reasons) But theres no accountability for buyers who want to be jerks. While most people are decent, theres a large amount of very unpleasant people who leave negatives for little to no provocation.
    Many sellers just switch accounts these days every so often as its really easy to rack up some negatives. Ive had feedback extortion a number of times. Very stressful. Recently incurred one last year when i had 2 of the same items. Emailed the buyer of the first one to update him item was on its way, but BTW, i just listed the second one so dont freak out,. Next AM, I got a negative. And a email of “Oooops, i didnt read your email first and thought you screwed me, oh well,” Buyer wouldnt retract the feedback, Im stuck with it. With 2 negs in 12 months my seller rating dropped, and I fell off the map for Best Search. my sales went into the toilet, and thats the end of that account. 385 satisfied sales, 2 jerks, So, havent listed anything since. I opened another account, just havent listed anything. CL or swap meets instead. Im not an isolated case. Feebays been bleeding sellers for years. Hence the aggressive marketing and “FREE FREE FREE listings” and other promotions.

    Another $30,000 car that would cost $100,000+ to restore correctly. Great if you are a super talented body/mechanic who wants a LOOOOOONG-term project, but just too far gone to be a reasonable restoration…. “Juice ain’t worth the squeezin’ ” in my book.
