@pip-bip It's the Rally edition, with the 60 hp engine instead of the base 52 hp engine. The car is only 2000 pounds, but that's still not much if you are going to try to navigate modern American traffic. That 2000 pound weight also mean no crash structure at all.
Maybe you get this to take to shows on weekends, but anybody over 50 will look at it and shudder. The Chevette was GM's attempt to prove to Americans how much better the Japanese compact cars were.
@pip-bip This is very similar to the Nova project Dave at Omega Auto Clinic has been working on on his YouTube channel, except that one was only sitting 20 years. Obviously, even if it runs, everything made of rubber, plastic, or cork is going to need replacement, because if it isn't leaking now, it will be gushing after a few thousand miles
@pip-bip Regular two door Impalas are fun, but the rare bubble tops are sought after because of their looks even though they weren't super popular in their day. This one is a rare factory SS 4 speed to boot.
@pip-bip Sweet, original tires and all! I approve of square bodies on Oppo.
Looking at that one I'm debating the bumper guards on my Suburban. We had them growing up, but I think I like the clean look.
Short aside, my mom rear ended a LeBaron convertible in our Suburban back in the day. Put the trunk in back seat (no one was hurt). On the Suburban there was a little scratch on the plastic part of the bumper guard strip. That was it.
@kiltedpadre I think the tax credit phased out. As for incentives I think they typically have limitations on model year. When I was looking I was trying to find the green or dark red, but there were none available for that model year and choosing an 18 at the time would meant loosing all of the incentives
