Lordstown, Ohio has a rich history in producing General Motors vehicles. Currently, it’s home to Chevrolet Cruze production. But, in the 1960s, the facility was making a very different Chevrolet vehicle — the Chevrolet Impala. And according to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania resident George Fultz, he owns the only remaining 1966 model year vehicle from the assembly plant.
The vehicle in question is a 1966 Chevrolet Impala with only 19,699 miles on the odometer. According to local news affiliate WKBN, Fultz bought the Impala when he was 18 in 1966. The vehicles was optioned with a rear antenna, side skirts and a side mirror. It arrived from the factory with a 327 cubic-inch V-8 engine making 275 horses, which remains spotless and untouched. The car has never seen snow, and rarely exits from the garage at his home.
In regards to the future of the 1966 Impala, Fultz says he’d love to see it return home to Lordstown, to serve as a museum piece in the assembly plant’s lobby.
“I’d love to see this car go back to the plant where it originated from,” he said. “I wish that GM would buy this car off of me.”
