Yes, a 2 door.


$11-17K is guide value, depends on your location and what buyers are willing to pay. www.hemmings.com


To clarify- it is a 1971 Impala Custom Coupe 400 Turbo V-8 with 31,600 miles. Red 2 door with vinyl top. Has a few scratches on paint. Perfect black interior with air conditioning. Runs great. Where should I start with an asking price?

Go to car.com and look there. They give all the specs on cars and top and low prices asking. Start with a low ball, know how much you are willing to spend and stop there. The 1971 came with either a 350 ci or the 454 ci engine. Yours is not stock. Stock in prime condition is around $8 grand. The Chevrolet Impala received a major redesign in 1971, making it the biggest passenger car Chevrolet had ever produced. The new Impala was 220 inches long, which was comparable to a 1957 Cadillac. Its 121.5-inch wheelbase helped deliver a smooth ride, and the wider frame resulted in a very spacious cabin. The 1971 Chevrolet Impala was available as two-door sport coupes and custom coupes, as well as four-door hardtops and sedans, a convertible, and station wagon. Prices ranged from $3,400 to $4,000, which was a significant hike from the previous year. As a result, sales suffered. For the base sedans and coupes, the Chevrolet Impala’s standard engine was a 250-cid six-cylinder with a single-barrel carburetor that delivered 145 hp. V-8 options ran from a 350-cid, 245-hp engine, through 255-hp all the way up to a powerful 454-cid unit that produced 365 hp. A three-speed manual transmission was standard on the smaller engines, while automatic could be equipped to all the power plants.


The 400 ci came in later years, but not in 1971. Since this is not an original engine, I'd start with a lower price of $3500? and see what he says. The 8 grand need to have prime paint, and everything there is top condition. It is a gas hog, burt gas was under a dollar in 71 also.
