Description for Chevrolet Impala 1959


Possibly the nicest1959Impalaconvertibleon the planet. Seven year frame-off rotisserie restoration with an absurd amount invested and just finished in 2014. I have proof of all the money (close to $200K) spent on this car with photo documentation. ThisImpalawas my dream build when I started in 2007 but the restoration was long, painful and expensive and now my tastes have changed. Every decision that was made on this car went in the direction of the best possible (and most expensive) components.

Just a "WOW" factor everywhere you look. This car was accepted at Barrett Jackson later this month but I just couldn't take the "No Reserve Risk". Buy it here and we both save the commission. This car is not going to be cheap but the reserve is very reasonable and WAY less than I have invested. Let someone else go through the headache and expense of a frame-off restoration and buy 'em already finished. That's what I'm going to do from now on.

If you want to talk about the car, feel free to call me at 650-430-2010. I have a partial Excel speadsheet of what was done and what I spent and more photos if you want.

I’m not a dealer. I’m a regular guy who loves cars. I've owed over 200 cars and this is the best car I've ever had. The opinion regarding the condition of anything other than a brand new car is subjective. To eliminate any chance of disappointment, you really should see and drive the car before buying. If you are not comfortable buying a car sight unseen (perfectly understandable), then arrange for an inspection.

If you’re serious about buying a car in this price range, I hope you will make the effort to pick up the phone and call Mark at 650-430-2010 to talk about the car. It seems strange to me that anyone would be willing to buy an expensive classic car sight unseen from a stranger without at least talking to him.

Please only bid if you are willing to honor your bid. The winner must Paypal or wire a non-refundable deposit of $500 to my account or hand me cash within 24 hours of the auction ending or your offer being accepted. Then, when you come to pick up the car, if you did not see it before the auction ended and are disappointed in any way, you will not have to pay the balance due. However, by winning the auction, you take the car off the market and all the other bidders turn their attention to other cars. Accordingly, your deposit IS at risk.
