If you haven’t guessed already, this is a weekend full of Quick Hit Wagon Listings, and look at this one. This is a 1961 Chevrolet Impala Wagon that is almost in as new condition. The colors are exceptional, the mileage is fairly low, the equipment level is rather ordinary for the time period, but put them all together, and all I can say is wow… So, what do you think about this Impala Wagon?

This is a No Reserve Auction, and with about three hours left before the bidding closes, the bids have reached $16,900, which isn’t all that bad. I predict it will go over $20,000 before the bidding ends. Tell me what you think of this nice wagon after you take a look at the listing here:

    My second car memory was our white with black spear and black houndstooth interior '60 Nomad, 3 on the tree. Wish I could write the check for this!!!

    Since they already converted it from a Powerglide to a Turbo 350, and added an alternator, why not add a Cool Pack under-dash a/c unit, with a modern compressor? The bidding ended at $16,900.

  • Quite the contrast to the 1957 Chevy Wagon posted moments before this beauty graced the 'verse. The price was too rich for my means, but I wish the new owner many happy miles/kilometers.

    Curb feelers on the passenger side? Is/was that typical?

      Interesting feature, wonder if they do some kind of scraping sound? Whistle attached?

      • Wikipedia knows:

          Aaah…strangest thing!

            My favorite part of that wiki:

            "In the 1950s, cars were often equipped with curb feelers …Using a piece of 48 inch conveyor belt, 4 to 5 feet long by 4 to 6 inches wide and a couple of pieces of angle iron, you can make a pinch-point feeler, a warning device for the corners of a continuous miner. This will give a warning nudge to anyone in the danger area, giving him or her about a two-foot running start to stop the machine or to yell at the operator to stop. The belting is stiff enough to hold its shape but flexible enough to give if it runs into a miner or vice versa. The flexibility also allows this "curb feeler" to drag against the rib or be smacked by a shuttle car with little or no damage. A little spray from a can of reflective paint will make the belt a visual warning device as well. One or two on each corner will help or put as many as you want.[1]"

            Curb feelers were great for protecting your whitewalls.

  • jno

    They were considered sorta geeky by some back in the day. Now, I guess considered in wonderment.
