I am the second owner. Here's the history, as it was told to me by the original owner. He was discharged from the service in Texas in 1958. He took his discharge money and went to the local Chevrolet dealer, bought this car, and drove it home to Sonoma, California. In 1962 he purchased the four speed transmission from Chevy and installed it. He drove the car in stock configuration until 1975, when he had the car nosed and decked, repainted and pinstriped. Sometime in the late 80's he installed the power steering, front disc brakes and chrome wheels. In the early 90's he parked the car in his garage in Sonoma, where it remained until I bought it several years ago. The Impala now resides in Rohnert Park, just over the hill from Sonoma.
There are several things that need attention. Small things that I just haven't had time to deal with. The speedometer quit a couple of months ago. I believe it's the cable. The inside door handle on the driver's side isn't working. Something let go inside the door. The front seat brackets need repairing. The front to rear adjustment mechanism works fine though. There is a split in the front seat upholstery underneath the drivers seat back. Hard to see, but it's there. The transmission shift linkage could use adjusting. There is a small exhaust leak where the pipe meets the manifold on the left side.
The Impala is a blast to drive and has been totally dependable. It draws attention like you can't believe and has been a huge hit at every show I've taken it to. The 60's hot rod style is unmistakable and it has survived since 1975 in its current configuration.
If you have any questions use the "ask a question" feature in the listing and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you would like to view the car it can be arranged. Thank you.
