Barn Find 1963 Impala. Help!

Looking for advice on how to price this 1963 Impala and how to sell it. Your typical only driven on Sunday kind of car, owned by a farmer. Has been sitting since early 1980s. Low mileage -- I would guess 20K or under. All original. Was a custom build -- does that make it worth more? One owner. Can anyone give me suggestions on how to get an accurate price, and recommend where to sell it? Thank you!

Interesting car. Looks like a 4-Speed car with a Factory Tach. Is that 327 Emblems I see on the side?

Now see, that's why I'm here on this forum. I don't know much about cars, and I knew that the experts here could tell me things just by looking at my photos. I don't know if those are 327 emblems, nor do I know what that is! But I will try to get a better look (and photo) and post it here. Thank you! If you have any suggestions for a person who could give me an appraisal or a place that you would recommend selling it, I'd sure appreciate it!

There are some good choices out there for selling. Two good places are Hemmings Motor News and Oldride.com. For an Appraisal, I would try a local guy.

Post a picture of the Engine when you get a chance and any other interesting Options that the car may have. The Numbers and Letters on the Engine Pad would also tell us what you have there.

I looked up '63 Impalas on Hagerty.com's evaluation chart. $16,100 in fair condition + 10% for a 4 speed transmission. I would call them way too optimistic for a 4 door hardtop. That is with a 327 w/4 barrel carb. Is the interior all moldy & rotten, or just dirty. Are there rust holes in the floor under the carpets, or anywhere else? Some folks like to try & sell barnfinds just like they found them, but I would try to clean it up first. It might clean up pretty nice with some cleaning products & elbow grease. It definitely is a pretty rare car with a 4 speed in a 4 door hardtop.
