I'm hoping the silver car(which looks like a Corvette) has it's hood up for display and not the crash.

A friend owns this one - 1968 Chevy Impala SS 427 Convertible Pre-Production Pilot Line Car



1968 Chevy Impala SS 427 Convertible Pre-Production Pilot Line Car
VIN: 164678S10003
Only SS427 Pilot Line Car Known



In the 1960s, pilot line cars were hand crafted and hand assembled four to five months before actual production on a new vehicle series began. Typically, these pilot line cars were tested to the point that they could no longer be sold, but in a few rare cases, 1960-era pilot line cars were sold to auto manufacturing employees or sent to wholesale auctions to be sold as used cars. By the 1970s, federal MVSS regulations changed and liability became an issue, so pilot line cars were no longer made available for sale. In most cases, these pilot line cars were destroyed before assembly-line production began on the final product.

Although 1,778 pre-production 1968 Impalas are known to have been made, this particular vehicle was number three in the pre-production pilot line series. Numbers one and two have never been found, making this beautiful convertible the only known 1968 Impala SS 427 pilot line car in existence. It has been completely and professionally restored and is now available for purchase.

This pristine muscle car is loaded with the L-36 Turbo-Jet 427 V-8 engine (385 horsepower) and the 400 automatic transmission. It features power brakes and power steering, tinted glass, and mag-style wheel covers. Refinished in the correct C-Paint Code, this Ermine White beauty also features an as-delivered interior, following the two-tone red 868-Trim Code. The interior also includes perfectly restored bucket seats, console, remote mirror, and original AM/FM stereo with auxiliary 8-track player.


List of features:
A-31 Power Windows
A-81 Headrest
A-01 Tinted Glass
G-92 308 Rear Axle
J-50 Power Brakes
M-40 Turbo Hydra-Matic 400
N-34 Sport Steering Wheel
N-33 Comfort Tilt Steering
N-40 Power Steering
N-96 Mag-Style Wheel Covers
U-14 Special Instrumentation
U-57 Stereo Tape System
U-79 AM/FM Stereo Radio
Z-03 SS Equipment Package
Z-24 SS 427 Engine
AZ-9 Auxiliary Lighting


In November of 2016, Muscle & Corvette Nationals awarded this beauty the Concours Gold Certificate, a prestigious and highly desirable honor that marks it as being one of the most rare and stunning examples of early pre-production Chevy Impalas known in existence.

Very nice. Perfect for a collector to own for investment and bragging rights. The problem with the car is you can't drive it. You can't risk stone chips or hail, or any other real world hazards. It's too rare and valuable to park anywhere, even if you can see it out the window of where you are. Well you could, but a big waste of money and direct route to piraiahville.

Exactly. He tells me he drove it once, about 20 miles. It's stored in a secure, temp-controlled warehouse in Montana, and it only leaves the warehouse (inside a sealed car transport trailer) for the occasional car show.

It's "an investment" he tells me. I say, use it or lose it! Well, not really - it IS worth a butt ton of money, but c'mon - realistically, it's not much more than a very pretty, very expensive, paperweight.

And too big to fit on the mantle.
I belong to a group who own trucks that only 24000 were built over four years, the last 11 years ago.
The group is split three ways, the trailer/garage queens(wipers work? don't know never seen rain),
the Sunday/vacation drivers who got wet and took two weeks to clean it properly,
and us daily drivers who have the most fun, least worry, if it breaks fix it.

I live near Vancouver WA, and most of the freeway exits/entrances are built like this. First time I encountered one, I flipped out!

The design engineers are paid a percentage of youtube videos that go viral.

Popdigr bought some tires at WalMart, had WalMart put 'em on. First time we went to rotate them, we took off two unbelievably tight lugs, and Popdigr said "Put 'em back on."

Then he went to WalMart and made them loosen all the lug nuts and hand tighten them back. They had to use cheater bars and muscles, to loosen the lugs, their air wrench wouldn't do it.

Morons.
