The other day I was a guest on a local radio show here on KBZY, called The Car Show Report where recent past and future car events are presented and discussed, as well as some automotive trivia, and pertinent questions related to classic cars, and the like.
One of the questions I was asked was; What is a “Survivor” car?..I answered the question, explaining the particular attributes of what I believe to be considered a “Survivor” type of classic car.
I wish I had this Impala at the time of the broadcast, as this particular Impala is a very fine example of just that! A Survivor!
This Impala wears it's original paint, it's original interior, it's original engine and drive train, and it's clean original undercarriage. It's overall original condition is unbelievable, and in consideration of this Impala's interior, it's nothing short of amazing!
That said, I also believe a “Survivor” must be in overall remarkable condition. For example; Paint should not only be original, but nice, and complete. Same with the engine and drive train, and if you can find a “Survivor” with it's original interior in tact, that's truly a rare find.
As you can see in the photos, the Fingerhut clear plastic seat covers remain over the original upholstery. The driver's seat plastic is torn, but I left in on there for you to see. Also, you can see just how excellent the original upholstery is through the tear.
The Impala starts with ease whether cold or warm, and runs nice and easy.
If you are new to the classic car scene, and want a nice classic car to transport your family all over the place, this Impala would make an excellent investment.
If you're a seasoned classic car owner, or an Impala enthusiast in particular, I know I don't have to explain to you how cool and unusual this car is.
Classic 1964 Impala Sedan, easy and fun to drive, and an all original “Survivor”. Truly a nice investment form every angle.
