That's a really nice looking '69 Impala, but it's definitely not an SS because those are very rare models and they came standard with the 427 engine. The low miles are a huge plus for collectible status along with the attractive bright red color since most '69 Impalas came with boring colors. The mag wheels are not original but I don't think that will have a negative affect on the car's value. Most people will actual prefer those over the stock wheels.

Ideally you should be able to get $15,000 for the car, but if you want to sell it quickly that might not be realistic. Find out if it has a 4 barrel carburetor or a 2 barrel carburetor. It is worth more if it came from the factory with a 4 barrel carburetor because that means it has the 300 horsepower variant of the 350 versus the less desirable 255 horsepower 2 barrel variant.

To be honest, I'm not 100% convinced that the car only has 45k original miles. Are you ABSOLUTELY sure about that? On those older cars, the odometer flips over once they hit 100k, so it might have 145k miles and have been restored at one point. That's definitely not a bad thing, I'm just throwing that out there as a possibility to consider. In the pics, the body and interior look perfect but the engine just looks like it has normal wear on it---not like a car that only has 45k miles on it.

Hope that helps, and good luck---cool car!!

Wow, I don't know Chevy prices but I can tell you with certainty that anyone interested will be really pleased to find a cherry car like that. Almost every car out there more than a few years old has replacement parts of one type or another, so you have a gem there.
