What an Opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind Impala at a great price. It’s only original once!!
Update on the condition of the car. The Impala interior has been restored and the front seat reupholstered by a local upholstery shop that specializes in classic cars. The car has also been repainted to its original color and the body only had minor dings and scrapes prior to repainting. Car was painted in February 2017.
Rarely do you find a low production Impala station wagon with a slim chance of finding another one like it. I am selling it for a friend of mine, who is the third owner. Up for auction is a well-kept, well maintained, all-original 1966 Impala station wagon with only 53,000 original miles. This vehicle was purchased from a gentleman (second owner) in York, Pennsylvania who owned it for about 17 years. He always kept it garaged (like the first owner--who he knew well). It has never been driven in the snow and it shows. In fact, it appears that the second owner only drove it for about 8,200 miles in 17 years.
This Impala has the dependable 283cid/220hp 4-barrel V8 engine, Power-glide Trans., Power Steering and a host of other factory options (listed below). Photos cannot the true beauty and originality of this timeless classic painted in the original color Ermine White with the original Artesian Turquoise interior. The floor pans, frame rails, and suspension are in excellent condition. It appears that the undercarriage has NO RUST/NO ROT. The overall condition of the body is very good (bring a magnet). All of the glass is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. The windows go up and down freely and all the doors, including the rear tailgate, fit and shut securely. All of the pot metal, bumpers, bumper guards, storage rack, moldings, glass etc. are also in Very good condition.
The dash also has some cracking and some of the seats are also torn, however, the steering wheel is cracked. As you might expect for such an original car, 50 years of sunshine has faded some of the interior colors. I have contacted an upholstery shop and all of the work mentioned above can be done inexpensively.
In my opinion, this is an unbelievable find and ranks well above the status of a routine, ordinary survivor. I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. It has a clear title. Please come see and drive it for yourself. Drive it home!

Classic station wagons, in this condition, are almost impossible to find these days! If you’ve been waiting for an original, rust-free wagon to come along then don’t let this one getaway; keep it original or customize it they way you want. You may not want to get it repainted. It’s really that good! Should you have any questions, please call
