Capitalizing on the growing patriotism of the United States’ upcoming Bicentennial celebration in 1976, Chevrolet introduced “Spirit of America” edition Chevrolet Impalas such as the example recently listed on Craigslist in Skaneateles, New York with only a stated 44,480 original miles with an asking price of $12,000 or best reasonable offer.   Checking the NADA Guides Class Car Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his C10 priced within the “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range of $6,817, $10,496, and $18,900, respectively.

If you can get past the speaker’s monotone narration, the YouTube Channel provides a detailed overview of these Spirit of America Impalas:

    I remember my dad had rebuilt a Spirit of America Impala convertible. Never have I seen another one.
