New member 68 Impala Convertible

Hi,
I'm new to this forum. Bought a 68 Convertible over Labor Day. We put over 1000 miles on it so far and we LOVE it! 81,000 miles looks fairly original. 327 auto PS, PB, PW, A/C. Palamino Ivory with black interior.We have 4 Corvettes but have a bunch more fun with the top down and another couple or the grandkids in the back of the Impala. I know we all like pictures sooo here they are.

Welcome to the Team Mike!

Looks like my mom's old car with the exception that it was a four door hard top and not a convertible. Other wise same color scheme.

How about sharing some pics of your 'vettes? The 1968 Impala used the brakes off a Corvette for it's disc brake option in 1968.

I see you like C-3's as much as I do. I owned a 1961 Corvette for two weeks once. Traded it for a Baldwin-Motion Phase III RS-SS 1968 Camaro with a deluxe interior back in 1969 that had a Don Yenko built 427 under the hood.

Thanks for the compliments guys. With the Harley and the cars put away I don't know how I'll make it through the winter!
I will be completing the blue 72 and preparing the other 72 for sale. It has a never started jasper engine and trans in it and I think I should get it fired up to make it more salable.
Have a great day!
Mike

I used to have a 70 convert 4 speed Vette for many years. I replaced it with a 92 convert 6 speed vette. Both were about the same color blue. I still have my 3rd red red 327 4 speed 64 Impala SS hardtop. All your cars look very good
