Wow...nice score...my mechanic picked 1 up for $400 white with sunroof...correct 5 star rims and no spoiler...had a wiring problem that sparked a flame and the lady got nervous and sold it. I've been trying to purchase it from him provided i find a harness

wheels are from previous gen. they were probably steel to begin with. 3400 have bad lim gaskets its possible engine is hydro-locked and depending on the circumstances the engine could just need headgaskets, lim and uim gaskets and a good cleaning of oil and coolant. those engines can easily go twice that many miles if taken care of. regardless its a pretty nice car for cheap when you get it going.

Wow, someone wasn't nice to that car. But at that price you could strip it, and scrap it and make a big profit. Good score.

That entire car looks beat to Hell.

I would have made them pay me to take it.

You got a nice shell to start off with. The interior will definitely need some TLC, and the engine, well... its not your first rodeo...

Impala'* aren't worth much unless they're new. I personally feel this is a project that won't net you much money.
