68 Chevy Impala or Honda Civic

Fellas whats good out there in the world? OK my situation is buying a 68 Impala with a rebuilt engine with only 229 miles on the rebuilt (beautiful inside & outside). Or I can go with a 96 honda Civic. The deal is a trade for my 350 rebuilt engine in my truck (75 Chevy Custom Deluxe) plus $2000 for the 68 Impala? The Imapala carries a 327 engine that is chromed and looks great & runs loud and beautiful! Is this car capapble of traveling anywhere needed with no problems with this type of engine? I am taking the car on friday to be inspected before I buy it but I have already been assured the engine is in great shape. How long does the average rebuilt last and what is suggested to help the engine last? Should I go with a Honda with 150,000 miles on it with the same trade? Or go for the 68 Imapla? Also with all original parts how much is the 68 Impala worth? Please reply by 7/29/2004.

wow that sounds like a good deal to me my 327 runs just fine. as far as a rebuilt engine lasting if you drive it normal and don't abuse it you can get over 100,000 miles on one. i would take into consideration that it is a 36year old car and things will break and wear out every now and then so make sure you can afford the maint. or you have a place to work on it . but on the other hand a honda with 150,000 miles on it is going to need some maint. too.



i vote for the impala but then again i'm a bit biast.

i don't know where grand junction is but around here a solid running 68 will get you at least 5,000.

I'm biased too, get the Chevy! Especially if it's a 2-door.

You can always get a Honda or anything else for your commuter/driver car, there is certainly no shortage of them.

As far as travelling goes - if it's road worthy, it can go anywhere. I've taken my from Vegas to DC, no problems all the way.
