BaT Exclusive: Preserved 2162-Mile 1966 Chevrolet Impala
This 1966 Chevy Impala sedan was purchased at Castle Rock Chevrolet in Colorado and after driving a mere 2064 miles was put into storage where it remained until 2005. The car was sold to the current owner in 2005 by the grandson of the original owner, and has been stored on jackstands in a climate-controlled garage ever since, covering under 100 miles for routine exercise. The car has factory tires, belts, brake pads, and chassis grease. It is amazing cosmetically with only two small blemishes as shown in the gallery of 123 photos below. It is now available in Denver, Colorado for $15,500. Contact us at email@example.com if you are interested.
The car features its original 283 V8 and automatic transmission. We all wish for SS big-block coupes, but even on a plain-jane sedan of this sort is a treat to observe as a reference-grade survivor. How much more original could it be? The only two cosmetic defects noted by the seller are a scratch in the bumper chrome and a slight corrosion bubble under the window trim. Both of these are shown in the last two photos of the gallery.
The pristine clear plastic seat covers have totally preserved the seat fabric. Photos show the doors, dash, radio, rear shelf, and headliner to be in exceptional condition. The driver door wears a hand-written paper maintenance tag from a service visit in 1967! The fluids and battery have been changed but all else is as it came from the showroom. The original temporary license plate in also included.
Check out the Flickr album slide show below for 123 photos of the car. The 100-series photos were taken when the current owner purchased the car in 2005 (date stamp is in error). The 4000-series photos were taken where the car currently resides, on stands and under a cover. If you had one of these cars back in the day, this would be like buying a new one all over again.
A na koniec komentarz pracownika właściciela z USA:
I can add some additional info on this car. I know and work for the current owner. When he purchased the car it was stored at my house for 1 year until he had a place to keep it. While the car ran I did not want to start it to back it out of the garage for the photo’s so I pushed it out and used the block of wood as a stop. When he purchased it he had a local Corvette performance shop go through the fuel system, transmission and brakes to verify safety. Other than fresh gas and Stable the car was left as purchased. The car shows very well. There is no indication that the mileage is higher than stated. The inner fenders are clean the accelerator and brake pedals look new with no wear. The car was garged in Denver by the family of the original owner. I have no idea why the car was used so little but I believe it was purchased by a fellow who was quite old at the time and when he passed on his wife who did not drive kept the car for sentimental reasons. I know their son came over and started it once or twice a year and kept the gas tank fresh and kept the tags up to date, at least until 1990. After 1990 the tags expired but the son continued to keep the car in driving condition. When the wife passed away she left the car to her grandson. At that time the grandson worked for the owners company and sold it to him as he had no need for it. The current owner bought it, had it checked out and then stored it at my house. At my house I took the phot’s for insurance reasons and looked the car over. the glove box door was stuck but after some WD40 I got it unstuck. Inside was the temp tag, manual and Protecto Plate and a box of Kleenex with the copyright date of 1966. I really do not believe the glove box had been opened in decades. The owner is now retiring and would like to sell the car. This would make a nice museum car, a great car for a Chevrolet dealer or a weekend cruiser. While it could easily be driven every day you would soon take away the only thing that makes it valuable and that is the low mileage. I would be happy to answer any questions that you have.
