As you can see in the pictures, a previous owner
thought adding stripes throughout the length of the body of the
car was a "cool" thing to do. Cowl tag indicates this
car is originally red paint, white convertible top, with parchment
(black and white) bucket seat interiors. Clues that this is, in
fact, a real L72 car are the 6,000 R.P.M. tachometer, the correctly
numbered intake manifold and carburetor for the L72, and the single
fuel line shown above and center.
This car obviously needs some TLC,
but I finally convinced Terry to send some pictures anyways because
of what this car is! I know of only a handful of L72 1968 Impala convertibles,
so this is one extremely rare piece. Other neat features are power
front disc brakes and a 4.11 positraction rear axle.
