    1978 Impala coupe for sale

    Post  firesburnsmup on Tue Aug 01, 2017 12:45 am

    I wish I didn't have to, but I'm selling my '78 Impala.
    I'm in Grand Rapids, MI, and I need her gone soon. My dad's kicking her out of his garage, now that I've got my own house, and I can't keep it at my house for long.

    Pros:
    89k original miles
    2 owners -my grandad and me
    305 engine was rebuilt about 15k ago
    upgraded cam (don't remember what kind)
    600 Holley
    just did the head gaskets, radiator, and ignition systems 4 years ago before putting it in storage.
    Rear windshield is in perfect shape
    full size spare
    all 4 original wheel covers
    OE jack
    Seats are in decent shape
    Paint was redone about 10 years ago, in same OE light blue color
    A few spare parts, including an optional center-dash clock from another car and a Holley rebuild kit

    Cons:
    Passenger door window shattered when I put it in storage (no clue how). Sorta the nail in the coffin, there.
    needs an upper grille
    front windshield is cracked
    interior carpet is a bit worn, especially under the driver's feet
    Some vinyl cracking on the interior door handles
    Hood insulation isn't in great shape
    Paint job was cheap, so there are some chips
    Some spots of rust, with only two spots gone through
    I think there's a hole under the driver floor board
    Needs new tires, badly.
    Needs battery - won't start even with a jump, just clicking.
    I think the gas tank was empty, the meter reads pretty empty, but if it wasn't empty there probably wasn't stabilizer in it.

    I'm asking $2000 OBO. I honestly can't be bothered to know how much it's worth at this point, so make me an offer I can't refuse.
    I'd rather it go to one of you guys who care about these cars than to somebody who'll scrap it or worse. It'll be going on craigslist, too, but I wanted to make sure it was here, too.

    For pictures, here's a link to a google album. If that doesn't work, then let me know and I'll text or email them to you.

    I'll miss her, but I'm hoping to find her a good home.
