1962 Chevrolet Impala
This is a tagged insured good running, driving, shifting, stopping old school ride to enjoy as is or to take to whatever level suits you. Is it a real SS..? It does have bucket seats, the center console with cup holders, and the SS badges...VIN#21847L233120de-coded is as follows: 2 =1962, 18 = Series Impala V8, 47 = Body Style 2 Door Sport Coupe, L = Los Angelas Plant Mfg., and the rest is the production sequence. It all seems to add up to SS to me but please do tell me different if you know something I'm missing...
DRIVE TRAIN: I didn't do the build but here's what I was told about the drive train. SBC350 motor 2 bolt cut 030 over with 1.94 camel back heads, a Melling high volumne oil pump, 1.6 roller tip rockers, Crower cam, Crane push rods, Accel blueprint distributor w/ 53,000 volt Hypertech coil, Carter 600 cfm afb aluminum high flow water pump, Powermaster mini starter, Hedman headers, Centerline solid wheels with almost new tires. Has stainless steel front disc brakes and power brake booster. B&M mega shifter 3 speed automatic (I don't know how to ID the transmission to tell you what it is). There a pile of paperwork and a 62' shop manual included in the sale.
GAUGES/LIGHTS/GLASS: Speedometer and odometer do not work. Original mileage is unknown. Add on volt meter, oil temp, water temp, and electric fan on manual switch do work. Interior lights, headlights both bright and dim foot controlled, and taillights all work. Currently having issues with turn signals but will look into and update listing if I get them working. All glass is good with side and rear windows dark tinted. Windows roll up and down well and doors open and shut fine. Lap seat belts are installed.
INTERIOR: Don't know the proper term but I'd call it a crush velvet/velour type of texture, grey and black interior. Not screaming new but in really good shape, not dirty, or torn, and it's comfortable. Visors, headliner, dash, door panels all look good. Headliner is coming loose some along back window and back window deck interior is faded with speaker cut outs. I would definitely ad a badass sound system if I kept the car.
PAINT & BODY: This is a RUST FREE car from the desert southwest with no known body work. Yes there is very minor surface rust underneath and in the trunk, but its very superficial. I would consider undercoating the car to continue to preserve this specimen. Paint is a matte black which I like and it gives the car a badass sinister look. It is not a fancy high dollar paint job and there are a few little places when you really look that show its previous/original? red paint. All chrome/stainless trim is in place. I have inner fenders in excellent condition just not installed and some spare trim pieces, a scooped fiberglass hood, and chromelicenseplate frame that come with the sale.
SALES & PAYMENT DETAILS: I reserve the right to end this auction at anytime as car is for sale locally. Car is over 55 years old and is sold AS IS with NO WARRANTY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. I have done my best to accurately describe the car. Any mistakes or mis-representations are not intentional. You are more than welcome to come inspect the vehicle in person prior to bidding. Once you win the auction the car is yours. I require a $500 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT via paypal or cash in person and some form of communication (call/ebay message/or text) from the buyer within 24 hours of auction close. Balance due in CASH ONLY within 10 days of auction end, unless we agree on other arrangements. I reserve the right to cancel any bid at any time for any reason.
DELIVERY/SHIPPING:I may be able to deliver the car personally depending on your distance from Zip 28753 and am willing to negotiate a very fair price for this service. My delivery will be on an open car hauler not an enclosed trailer. I will also do my best to accommodateand assist buyer or buyers shipper with loading if given advanced notice and good communication. I can't be "on call" for days on end with some of these drivers or dispatchers who don't know how to use a telephone. My house is not accessible by tractor trailers. All shipping and delivery will be at buyers expense. I can store the vehicle for a short time once paid for but it may be necessary for me to move it outside to make garage space.
OVERSEAS BUYERS:I am not familiar with details of shipping overseas. The car is located about 5 hours from the port of Charleston, SC. I am willing to work with your broker/shipper or friend in the USA but will not be responsible for or incur any expenses in the process. Vehicle will not leave my property for 14 days after full payment has cleared and overseas buyer must communicate with me prior to bidding.
Additions: Power steering works fine but the pump does make a whining sound. The car does not have the grab bar on passenger dash which may mean it is a regular coupe (SS clone) Not sure?
