This is a one owner rust-free and accident-free “Blue Plate” California car and a mate with the 1968 Impala we also have offered. This car was personally special ordered especially by and for George F. Matacek from Costa Mesa, California for use only by his wife. After waiting for their special order to be delivered, George and his wife bought it at George Mejan Chevrolet, Inc. in Los Angeles on December 21, 1971. This car is complete with the original window sticker, purchase invoice and all books and records.
George is to this day a lover of all things Chevrolet. He has been buying new Chevy’s since 1956 and ordered a new Chevy every four years like clockwork. He also bought his first Chevy convertible in 1959 and continued with them until his last Chevy convertible, the 1968 that we are offering in our inventory.
George’s wife used this 1972 Impala as her “about town” car and together they used it as their vacation car. They have traveled to Scottsdale, Tahoe, Palm Springs and many other destinations accumulating years of enjoyable memories. The motorcar has accumulated a total of 116k miles in the 38 years they owned the car.
The car has been garaged since new and has never had any body work, accidents or rust of any kind. It is all original and in show condition as an original motorcar.
The car was special ordered by George in Antique White (Code 11-11) paint with a white power operated convertible top, and white vinyl interior to match the 1968 Impala Convertible. The interior is all original and in show condition. It is a matching numbers car with the 400 cid V-8 with the Turbo Hydromatic 3-speed transmission, air conditioning, tilt wheel, power steering and power brakes. George has been using Mobil 1 synthetic oil in his Impala since 1992!!
Both the 1968 and the 1972 come with complete books and records. We have had the pleasure to meet and talk with George who is a delightful man and open to discuss these important motorcars. Both cars are offered with their original and only California license plates. This is a terrific opportunity to buy the ever popular and appealing Impala convertibles with perfect ownership history and documentation. It doesn’t get any better than this!!
