This rough 1961 Chevrolet Impala with incredibly low mileage needs to be saved for posterity.

One specific example has come to light; it's rough around the edges, but its heart tells a story of little value.  

This Impala, with only 23,000 miles on the clock, is a time capsule that begs to be preserved.

The car's body is tarnished by rust, a sign of its authenticity, and its condition speaks of years without the touch of the road.

The prospective buyer is taking on the role of keeper of a fragment of history rather than just buying an automobile.

The engine promises the roar and rumble of a bygone era, even though it might not be the original 350 big-block.  

Located in Santa Rosa, California, the vehicle is in need of a rescuer who is prepared to provide not only financial support but also enthusiasm and commitment.
