Hello...I'm the new guy. If this is posted in the wrong place i apologize.

My Father passed away and left the kids his 1964 Impala SS and we need to sell it. We don't know what it's worth in it's present condition.

We have had some offers but i don't know what is reasonable. Can someone give me a ballpark?

If it's a true SS, gotta believe it's worth more than that for even parts to the right buyer. How much more, not sure.

If it were in better, running condition, I might agree. But it's rotted out. It needs a total resto.

It's a 327 SS - those weren't all that rare. So it doesn't have a lot of value, like a rare 70-454-SS Chevelle, for example.

Anybody doing a resto on this has to start at frame off and go up from there. They'd have to spend thousands on a car that won't return it.

Whoever spends more than that will need a special (personal) attraction to it, but, for me, it needs to be a lot more special to get much more than 500 bucks. A hot, stock 409, for example, with the interior in batter shape.

I think 500's a decent number.

Gotta agree with piano-doug, $500 is about the best you can expect. It was original in '89 which means it was a 25 year old well used car then. Since then it has sat outside and rotted for another 25 years. Not much value left and although it is old, age alone doesn't make something collectible.

Where is the car at and is it sold? Car is definitely worth more than $500 unless there are no floors or trunk left in it. What else is the car missing?

Glad to see that you will keep it, but jack it up off the ground first chance you get.

I'm late to reply on it and it very well could be a good restorable car, but if it were close by here, I would pay at least $800 for it as a parts car.

1964 409 ss

I'm a new guy too. I just inherited a 64 SS 409 4-speed impala. I have the original bill of sale which shows the following options: 4-speed trans $236.75, 340 hp 409 $24?.10, positract axle $43.05, am/fm radio & speaker $150.15 (I was surprised by the cost of this in 1964),tinted ws $21.55, and padded dash $18.30. The car runs and drives but needs a total restoration due to rust in most of the car. It is dark blue ext and blue int. The original engine is in it as well as the original trans and rearend. The only thing that appears to be wrong with any of it is the water pump looks to be from a 348 according to a knowledgeable guy I had look at it. I'm wondering if anybody can tell about how much I would spend restoring this car and if I can't afford it, how much should I ask if I sell it? Thank you for your help!

Sounds like a real interesting car, but to Restore it, an experienced person would need to actually be there to check it over. Without pictures, which would only produce a range in the ballpark anyway, it would be anyone's wild guess.

Hello All
Just to update this thread for the next guy...
Benny turned out to be right.
I had 4 reasonable offers.
$2000, $2500 and two for $3000.
The car is worth 3-5k as is depending on location.
Hope this helps the next guy

Marc, what part of the country are you in? I would be interested to drive to you and perhaps make you an offer you can’t refuse!
