This mysterious 1966 Chevrolet Impala doesn’t need TLC, small block under the hood
The 1966 model was obviously based on its predecessor, but on the other hand, Chevrolet implemented a change that ultimately turned out to be a pretty bad idea.
The company has decided to make the Caprice a stand-alone series in its range. For the Impala, that meant one simple thing: some customers switched to the new model, causing sales to decline for the 1966 model year.
But that doesn’t mean the ’66 Impala still isn’t a nice car. It does, and the example we have here perfectly shows its eye-catching design in all its glory.
The vehicle has already been restored, but on the other hand, it is still as mysterious as it sounds. This is because the eBay seller lisadamron says they just picked up the car in exchange and they don’t know much about it, although at first glance not only does it look impressive, but it also comes with everything in working order.
Under the hood there is a small block of 327 (5.3 liters) that runs like new, which makes perfect sense given that the car has already been restored.
But on the other hand, the biggest questions remain unanswered. For example, is this Impala still original, and if so, what proportion was replaced during the restoration process?
The car looks complete, and the eBay listing says mileage of almost 70,000 miles (112,500 km), although again, no one is sure whether it is original or not.
But in the end, this Impala at least deserves a personal inspection. After all, this could all turn out to be a gem that many would drool over. The auction has already reached $ 11,000, with approximately 8 days until the auction ends.
