Continuing on with our low mileage weekend, and there are two very different Low-Mileage Chevrolet Models currently on eBay, and they are both damn lustworthy in my opinion. One is a Sedan from the value end of the full-sized lineup, the other is a full-on top “o” the line model. Both are equipped with v-8 power, and Air-Conditioning. Without a poll, tell me which one you like better…
This is a 1968 Chevrolet Bel-Air Sedan, showing only 5,600 miles on the odometer. This is really my personal favorite of the two, and according to the listing:
56 hundred miles- for real.1 family owned since new. Original paint and mileage as attested to by the owners family. If you sit in this car you could actually believe you are in the showroom of Williamson Motors in 1968 as it all is perfectly like new. From what I can gather on the internet this was the only year a Bel Air had a 307 which makes this car quite rare. It has always been garaged and was inherited in 1994 and garaged with a car cover since that time. It has only been driven to local car shows since 1994. Tires were replaced in 1994 when inherited as the receipt from Discount Tire attests so they are only a mere 18 years old- look like new and no dry rot because of excellent storeage conditions.
The frame has some surface rust underneath but none on the body panels. It does have a spot on the driver’s side front fender and a small area on the trunk deck lid where the paint is spidering which just confirms that the paint is original as the paint surrounding this area exactly matches the whole car. Antenna is perfect and is off due to the car cover. The 307 runs perfectly smooth and the car drives perfectly. This is a beautiful car worthy of a musuem piece although I would not be afraid of driving it across the country – I drove it 30-40 miles back home from where I purchased it. Only 2 issues I know of that need to be addressed. The previous owner said that the ac had been cold until recently and it came with a new can of R-12. The fuel guage is stuck on 1/4 tank and I would guess it is the tank float but I put a bunch of gas in it so I will leave these 2 things to the buyer.
With a little over eight days to go until the auction ends, the opening bid is $12,000, and it looks like the reserve will be a little higher than that. The condition is amazing, so have a look at the listing here: 1968 Chevrolet Bel Air Sedan w/ 5,600 miles
This is a 1975 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Convertible, finished in a Bright Red with a beautiful white top and interior. This car shows 9,470 miles, and it looks like that is original. According to the listing:
