1968 Chevrolet Impala 396 Auto #s Matching 17s Slick Paint on 2040-cars
Ringgold, Georgia, United States
Up for sale is a 1968 Chevrolet Impala. It is originally from Montana and is very solid. There has been some money spent on the paint and other upgrades to make it unique. I will be highlighting this Car in three main paragraphs. They are Exterior, Interior and Drivetrain. If I happen to leave anything out please use the contact information I have listed to ask.
Exterior: The body has seen one repaint since factory. The car was resprayed base coat/clear coat in the brightest red the painter could find. There is no rust in the frame,trunk or in the body itself. The bumpers and all other trim are original. While not perfect they shine up very well. All the glass is still clean. I will rate the body at a modest 9 on a 1-10 scale. I think with a little more TLC it could be a 9.5!
Interior: It is mostly all original on the interior. The carpet has recently been replaced. The front seats and rear seat are very nice. The dash is not all cracked up. I will try and display everything on the interior fairly. There has been a AM/FM radio added in place of the original but retains the stock look. The speakers have been upgraded as well. I will rate the interior at a 8.5 on a 1-10 scale.
Drivetrain: The original 396 V8 engine runs strong and always cranks with zero issues. The 3 speed Auto transmission shifts awesome. We recently added all new 2 1/2" exhaust from the manifolds back. We used 2 chamber Flowmasters and an h-pipe in the center,we then dumped the exhaust hot rod style at the rear tires. This car sounds awesome. The 17 inch wheels and Nexen tires are almost brand new. With the upgrades its a awesome cruiser/driver. This car turns heads!
In Closing: This is a very solid example of a 68 Impala. These are getting harder to find. The upgrades that have been done make it even more unique and hard to compare to others. I have set a fair reserve price. This vehicle could not be duplicated for what I would take for it. I have the right to end this auction at any time. As always this Impala is being sold as is/ where is. I have a clean title in hand.Thanks for looking and God Bless!

The majority of consumers are more or less priced out of the market.
Electric cars are gaining popularity with the general public, but are they still too expensive? According to a survey 1,084 consumers by Navigant Research, a consulting firm located in Boulder, CO, 71 percent want their next car to cost under $25,000, while 41 percent won't go a cent above $20K. Looks like people are even thriftier than we'd originally thought.
Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.
But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.
If you don't wish to know who won the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona, you should avert your eyes right now. We'll even give you a double-space to skedaddle...
For those of you still with us, the first race in the United SportsCar Championship (USCC) is done, but the discussions about it certainly won't end for a while. Daytona Prototypes claimed the first four overall places, the top spot taken by the No. 5 Action Express Coyote-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Joao Barbosa, Christian Fittipaldi, Sebastien Bourdain and Burt Friselle. The 16th and final caution of the race bunched the field up for an eight-minute sprint to the flag, so the first place getter finished just 1.4 seconds ahead of the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Dallara-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Max Angelelli. Third place went to Brian Friselle in the No. 9 Action Express Chevrolet Corvette DP, 20 seconds down. Chevrolet power hasn't taken the overall win since 2003, eleven years later it scores a one-two-three-four. The No. 6 Muscle Milk/Pickett Racing ORECA-Nissan 03 scored fifth place, the top LMP2 finisher.
The Prototype Challenge class win went to the No. 54 CORE Autosport team of Colin Braun, Jon Bennett, Mark Wilkins and James Gue.
