Thank you all for the replies!
Somehow didn't realize one needs to check two boxes to get notifications. Was wondering why I got no replies...
So, thus why late, but hopefully not too late!
Welcome to the Team Adriel!
Auction prices are determined by the bidders, not the sellers. With some auction houses you can set a reserve, but you will pay for the privilege if it doesn't sell to cover their time and effort to sell it.
As to price I have no idea as to it's value. Running is not as important as the body's condition. Restorers want a two door hard top body that is as close to rust free as they can get. Four doors do not fetch as high a price though a four door hard top is much more popular than a four door sedan.
Thank you Big Dave!
That actually is reassuring, as prevents issues of not getting sold and inflated ideas of the vehicles value.
I understand that for some reason two doors are a craze. But, how many then are there of four doors due to them getting scrapped? I have never seen another four door sport hardtop for sale and been looking for five years. To me a four door should be considered rare, especially the sport, because of this. It be perfect for a person who wanted to take his/her family with them as two doors are a pain. literally, especially with little ones. Glad to know with a sport this might have more validity and more chance for getting the Impala into good care! For me, it isn't about the money, but getting another classic plying the roads!
The appraiser who was of the vehicle preservation group who stole a old ladies $100 and ran, said it makes a huge difference. Why did he lie?
Shoot some pics of the body here if you would like to sell it or get advise.
The garage is too much of a mess... What I can tell you is the roof and some of the lower will need touch up. Paint is original and does look decent, except the roof and where the dust storm got her. There is the usual door rust in both fronts, but the left is worse and has a couple pin holes. If it were me, I just strip the paint, convert the rust, and lead it smooth. There is some parking lot rash, especially the rear right corner where someone backed into and slide along the body getting out of the stall back in about '65. Mostly trim though.
