Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to offer this rare 1968 Chevrolet Impala SS 427 Convertible for sale. There were only 1778 built in this model year. The Chevrolet Impala (fourth generation) are full-size automobiles produced by Chevrolet for the 1965 through 1970 model years. The 1965 Impala was all new, while the 1967 and 1969 models featured new bodies on the same redesigned perimeter frame introduced on the 1965 models. All Impalas of this generation received annual facelifts as well, distinguishing each model year. The 1968 model's front end received a facelift like the 1965 model, while rear bumpers held triple "horseshoe" shaped taillights. The formal Custom Coupe, previously a Caprice exclusive, became available as an Impala. Most Chevrolets got hidden windshield wipers. Plush new interiors also helped attract buyers. Impala overwhelmed the sales charts, as it had for years. Full-sized cars could have a 250-cubic-inch six, a 307-cubic-inch V-8, either of a pair of 327s of 250 or 275 horsepower, or a 325-horsepower 396-cubic-inch V-8. Topping the list was the big 427, rated at 385 or 425 horsepower. The two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission was still available with the 250 six-cylinder and 307 or 327 V-8s, but the three-speed Turbo Hydramatic could be ordered with all V-8 engines on the Impala Sport Sedan and Custom coupe. "Astro Ventilation" was an option for the Custom Coupe that included fresh-air vents, the same units that were used for the optional air conditioning, sans the center upper vent. Cars equipped with this option got full-length door glass minus the vent windows. These classic Impalas are some of the hottest things going in our hobby and this one carries some of the most desirable options of any impala ever made. This beautiful big block beast has the most desirable 427 with 425 hp (engine code T0708IE with full build sheet) and 4 speed Muncie M-20 manual transmission. Motor and trans were both rebuilt roughly 2000 miles ago. With a 12-bolt posi rear end geared at 3:55. With great options like Power steering, Power brakes with disc up front, Automatic convertible top in black, AM/FM radio, Seat belts, Rally wheels wrapped in Coker red-line radial tires.
