Detail about this car by owner
Found this one 2-door hardtop Chevy Impala SS being offered for sale in New River, Arizona. 1968 Chevrolet Impala SS396 325hp
Matching numbers FACTORY M-21 Muncie 4-speed A/C P/S P/D/B - Bucket seats - Floor Console
Factory Air Conditioning works excellent and blows ice cold. Excellent driver.
History of car is that it has always been in the southwest between Texas and Arizona. Very slight bubbling of paint at rear quarters but it won't show up in photos. Some rust at rear trunk area (see photo), OTHERWISE THIS IS AN almost RUST FREE SOUTHWEST GEM.

Paint was changed from gold to orange/red color years ago. It is very presentable as a driver. Some paint flaws I've tried to show in photos. NOT A CONCOURSE SHOW CAR--please guys, this is an excellent condition 'driver' that performs super well.
All original chrome, trim, rallye wheels, etc. All in good shape, but definitely original with some stress cracks in corners of chrome bumpers, etc. This is a 5 footer car--definitely nice driver quality but not a perfect show car by any means. Could be restored to show car quality, but why would you? Too much fun to drive as is.
12 bolt rear differential, 3:31 ratio open rear end.
245/60/15 Cooper RWL radials are at approx. 80% tread remaining. Spare included but NO JACK.
All dash gauges - interior and exterior lights - buzzers & alarms - all working great---MISSING RADIO. All window glass (tinted) might be original and in excellent cond. All windows operate as should roll up/down all window crank mechanisms in good condition & operate smoothly.
Clutch and transmission working excellent. Runs excellent--starts easy and runs great. NO ISSUES with any driving mechanicals or function. Fan motor blower heater A/C works great. 4 speed Muncie shifts very well, nice & tight with no slop in shifting mechanism or trans. Clutch action is smooth and engages/disengages nicely with no slip.
Interior was changed from gold seats to black years ago. So this was an original gold/gold car changed to red/black. Original carpet still in place. NO CRACKS in original dash. Vinyl top looks newer and is in excellent shape. All stainless trim and chrome is original, all SS badges appear to be original.
Original engine rebuilt at 84K miles with mild cam upgrade, head & valve work, etc. Not a drag racer, but still street-able and mildly tuned. Very powerful engine has great sound and mild lope to cam. Foot to floor and this beast will really move, even as big and heavy as it is. True dual exhaust with magna-flow mufflers all the way to back. Excellent suspension, tight steering with no slop, excellent brakes, NEW DRIVE SHAFT, NEW POWER BRAKE BOOSTER, NEW A/C LINES and compressor re-charged, NEW FUEL LINES, etc.
If you've read this far you probably already know how rare a factory matching numbers engine / matching numbers 4 speed Muncie Trans / true SS396 / Air Conditioning / Power Steering / Power Disc Brakes car is. The factory air combined with factory 4-speed makes this car very rare indeed. This is also the rarer still Custom Coupe body style.

Call if any questions -- Mike show contact info Located in New River, AZ 85087 (just N. of Phoenix).
I invite any all prospective buyers to physically inspect car in person prior to purchase. PLEASE CALL ME if unclear about any of these terms.
I found the numbers at the passenger front of the engine block and they read as follows:
T1220IA 78R133506
Looks like it is indeed a factory 4-speed, and the last nine digits also match the car's V.I.N.
This does indeed appear to be a very special car, and I hope that she goes into someone's collection of rare high performance GM muscle cars. Please remember to drive it though, as it's really too good of a car to just sit.
The brakes are power DISC front & DRUM rear.
The carb is an Edelbrock 4-bbl (big one). All other accessories including radiator, fan, shroud, pumps & pulleys etc. seem to be OEM original.
The A/C might have been converted to R-134, however I can't promise that. I don't see any stickers designating it as having been converted, so it's possible that it might still be charged with R-12.
Please feel free to call or email with any more questions.
