So. About everything in order. The car was purchased by me in Moscow at the end of 2008. Machine with Soviet history, was imported back in Soviet times! She worked at the Belgian embassy, drove diplomats! After the purchase by me, Upon arrival in Arkhangelsk (as of 2008, I still lived in Arkhangelsk, moved to St. Petersburg in 2016, I brought the Impala with me, of course) the car was put on a steady course, on May 10, 2009 I managed to ride it through the streets Arkhangelsk, from an excess of attention, Sleeper often went deaf))). Ride and put in the garage for painting the body, the body was COMPLETELY cleaned from paint to metal. Next, the car was primed and qualitatively painted. All components and assemblies are native. ENGINE NATIVE INLINE 6, VOLUME 4.1 liters, it will remain on this machine, as it is original, and with this engine this machine left the assembly line! The car is EQUIPPED FROM THE FACTORY with a 3-speed manual transmission, the gear lever is located on the steering column from the factory. The first and most important thing for me and my car is the authenticity of the car. It is important for me to restore THIS Machine to the original! That is, with such an engine with which she left the assembly line! And it is equally important to leave the existing MANUAL gearbox, which was also on this car from the factory! Let's turn to official sources and see how many Impals were produced with such an engine and gearbox. What we see - Impala in THREE TYPES of BODIES with such a motor and gearbox, there were only about 8700 pieces! EIGHT THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED pieces! Total! And this is with three types of bodies! If we assume that Sedans, hardtops and coupes were produced equally, then it turns out that only 3000 copies of hardtops with such an engine and box were produced! THREE THOUSAND PIECES, Carl! Exclusive! There are none of these in the states in the original! And one of the 3000 cars in this configuration, I have!
Now let's see how many Impals were produced in 1969 with a v8 engine, for which you all agitate me so much
actually SEVEN FIFTY FOUR THOUSAND PIECE!
By the way, even about 14,000 Impala convertibles were produced - four times more than cars in the configuration like mine. How many 1969 Impala convertibles have you seen? There are even fewer of my cars left in this configuration and in this body, like mine! draw your own conclusions)
And now ATTENTION QUESTION: WHY SHOULD I MAKE FROM A PIECE Goods something else that is not of collectible value?
