If you missed your chance to buy a new Impala from your local Chevy dealer in 1970, this is a car to take a close look at. The condition of this Impala is remarkable. Impressive enough that we dare say that this car looks as if it has hardly been driven between 1970 and today. Climate controlled storage and meticulous owners give us a chance to see cars like this one in nearly the same original condition that they rolled out of the factory in.
This particular Impala was purchased from George R Gibson Chevrolet of South Holland Illinois on July 1st 1970. A ledger was started when the car was new in which the owner kept records of any service completed on the car. It's a fairly short ledger thanks to the fact that the car has such low mileage. A large stack of receipts accompanies the ledger showing mileage along with the service records such as oil changes, batteries, tires, spark plugs, shocks, brakes, etc. The car was meticulously maintained, and as of recently was kept in climate controlled storage by the original owner's family.
This sleek car with it's slight 'coke bottle' shape is covered in the factory black paint (code 19B) and black vinyl roof. Although it's finished in an understated color, the car has a great look to it. A bright grille paired with quad headlights and a chrome bumper front the car, while a chunky squared off chrome bumper with rectangular tail lights finish off the back. The paint is original, and does show its age very slightly with a few small swirls in a couple areas, and a few stone chips on the hood. All the trim and brightwork show incredibly well, including the lights and side markers. 15” steel wheels have metal “mag style” wheel covers mounted to them, and are wrapped in white stripe tires.
Getting inside the car is easy thanks to the large doors, and once inside it's a time warp. Bell bottoms, platform shoes, or a pantsuit may still feel like appropriate attire in this car. You may expect a new single from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Neil Diamond, or Three Dog Night to be coming through the AM/FM Radio. The interior is in amazing condition throughout, and features include bench seats, wood veneer trim, AM/FM Radio, Factory A/C, retracting seat belts, and a sweeping speedometer.
Under the hood is a 400ci V8 mated to an automatic transmission. The engine bay, like the rest of the car is very clean and looks to be highly original. Power steering, power brakes, and factory A/C components are all highlights in the engine bay. The underside of the car is solid and again, looks highly original.
This car is in amazing condition and gives us a chance to see a car like this in nearly the same condition it was in when it left the showroom floor. It's a classic American car that's been a familiar name for decades and is immediately recognizable. Take a close look at this well cared for Chevy, it's your chance to have a highly original, documented car to relive the past in.
