Here’s something that should momentarily distract Philadelphia Phillies fans from another lost rebuild season: Pat “The Bat” Burrell’s cherry red 1966 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport has recently hit eBay.
Longtime BC readers and baseball fans already know the deal with the Phillies legend — two World Series rings, 12 seasons of tormenting the Mets, and a killer off-field resume. Now you can drive like him assuming you have $38,700 (OBO) to drop — details from the eBay listing:
One of the finest body-off restorations anywhere on this celebrity owned real 1966 Impala Super Sport Custom. Practically everything imaginable is new, NOS, refinished or rebuilt with amazing attention to detail. Only 500 break-in miles since restoration completed. Most recent owner was Major League baseball player, Pat Burrell and documentation will be provided.
Features include professionally rebuilt 396 cubic inch Turbo Jet engine with 360 horsepower, Turbo Hydra 400 floor shifted automatic transmission, 12 bolt rear end, power steering, 4 wheel Wilwood power brakes, center console, woodgrain steering wheel, rare AM-FM functional radio, rear window defroster, factory bucket seats, front and rear bumper guards, 18″ and 20″ American alloys, and an all new factory correct Fawn Beige two-tone upholstery. Body is professionally refinished in original factory correct two stage “Aztec Bronze”.
Six days remain in the auction but it’s worth noting 24 people have this classic car on their watchlist.
